Red Beans & Rice

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

Our appetizer came out very quickly, and it was fantastic! They are basically little balls of fried dough with cheese, corn, and peppers embedded within. There were about a dozen of them stacked on a bed of french fries, which in turn were stacked on a bed of lettuce.

Chicken Gyro

Athens, We Have A Problem

It was at about this point that I noticed my chicken gyro did not have feta cheese and onions in it, but I decided to not make a big deal of it. We’d already been here for well over half an hour and were just now getting our food, I just needed to get done with lunch and back to work. So I dug in.

Pad Thai

Close Enough

My Pad Thai had chicken in it, not pork. I like chicken well enough, so I didn’t complain. Close enough, I guess. I enjoyed the noodles and the vegetables quite a bit, and the spice level was just right (I had ordered it hot.) The chicken on the other had was awfully dry. Some of the pieces …

Suicide Burger

The Dive Review

I had ordered my burger medium rare, but it appeared to be cooked all the way through, with only the barest hint of pink in the dead center. In fact, temperature was an issue all the way around the table. We had medium burgers that were more rare than medium rare burgers and …

Mario Burger

A Time Capsule, With Beer

My burger was perfect. Very juicy, with just the right amount of pink. The buns were toasted nicely – any more and they would have been burned, but they didn’t cross the line. I didn’t put anything on my burger, just ate it the way it came. I’m glad I did, because it was delicious.

Johnny's Navajo Hogan

Johnny Be Good

My broasted chicken leg was also a hit. It was seasoned perfectly and the skin had a nice crunch. The meat was tender and juicy. It was one of the best pieces of chicken I’ve ever eaten. One of the friends I was with had ordered a whole plate of chicken, and now I know why.

Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Eating In Hell

This pizza is reason enough to come to Ruffrano’s Hell’s Kitchen. It’s got cheese, spicy Italian sausage, cherry peppers and pepperoni, as well as spicier-than-usual pizza sauce. I didn’t find it to be very hot, but the taste was fantastic. I enjoy spicy foods, so when I say something …

Li'l Slice Of Elbert

Small Town Goodness

The focaccia bread was amazing. It was airy and delicious, perfectly seasoned, and strong enough to hold the sandwich without ripping apart. The sandwich was loaded with delicious bacon, thick slices of ham, and tender chunks of chicken, along with red onions and lettuce.
