My favorite restaurant is the Hungry Lion, located in the Nuuanu area. It's a locally owned spot that is a good family place for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Very friendly atmosphere. While I was a tourist, I wasn't treated like one. I happened to be there on Sunday morning and the NFL game was on. Everyone one of the regulars cheered and talked about the teams and I was invited to join right in.
Favorite Dish: Anything on the Menu. I haven't found an item I didn't like.
Great people, terrific personnel, very clean facilites and the atmosphere is quite agreeable. Members and guests only permitted. Special holiday parties include Sweetheart dances, Christmas and others, as do fish frys, spaghetti and steak dinners (which are open to the general public). State Lottery gaming machines are also on the premises.
Favorite Dish: It's all good - but I'll take the steak and fries anytime...
One of several resturants that are most pleasurable is the Golden Corral. Many different things to choose from, heavy foods to delicate desearts. You pay one low price, and go to the buffet where everything is a joy to behold and eat as much as you would like. :)
There are senior citizen discounts available, and you can have private parties, and bithday parties for the little ones. The resturent is well lit and tastefully decorated.
Favorite Dish: Six or seven different kinds of salads, beginning with the toss salads, macoroni salad, potato salad, jello, pudding etc. Of course there are home baked warm rolls etc. potatoes, are mashed or baked or french fried, meats include roast beef, carved ham, baked and broiled chicken, hambergers, etc. vegitables, corn, beets peas, beans etc much much more. desearts pies, cakes, pizza, sundays cookies, and brownies. I think this will give you an idea and has truly made me hungry!!
Stubbs Barbecue in Austin, Texas.
Great atmosphere - this is also a live music venue featuring some good alternative country bands. Photos of famous people who have played here adorn the walls.
Favorite Dish: Beef Brisket in a fantastic barbecue sauce.
Why not try eating anywhere except at chain restaurants for a while. First of all , the food won't be worse; likewise the prices. More importantly, you will get out from under the impersonal shroud that covers the American freeway-driving experience. The local restaurants and cafes of Main-Street America are full of life and warmth, personalities and characters. People talk to each other, exchange the latest gossip, even ask strangers where they're from and where they're going. It may take you 15 minutes extra to leave the freeway, drive into town, and find a restaurant, but you're likely to observe more about that region over your meal than you could discover by eating for a week at the interstate chain restaurants. Look for the ordinary cafes where America and its people can still be seen 'in the rough': farmers, truck drivers, local businessmen, ranchers, salesmen, housewives, waitresses.
This is a family owned restaurant, all the staff is very friendly & sincere. The guys have that very sexy italian accent and what more could you ask for than a handsome italian guy sayng 'Bona sera!' to you after a great dinner?
Favorite Dish: Veal Marsala with the fettucine alfredo and the house salad is wonderfull!
mostly I ate at the Dennies up the road.
Though theres a diner in Malibu that does seafood ( duh ) and a great hamburger, next to a motel and a surfshop on PCH right across from the beach. I'm looking forward to going back there.
I also enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at the Mary Challenders ( I know I've got that wrong because I always do )on Wiltshire Blvd.
challanders had a terrific atmosphere - everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and their food and company.
Favorite Dish: I found most food was well prepared no one thing jumped out.
My favorite restaurants are: Miami there is the Marriot on the Bay near the Omni center, in fort lauderdale, Fla there are: EddiesHill restaurant. This is the best Japenese restaurant ever, and inexpensive as well, it is loacated on USI in Hollywood, Fl. There are Many great restaurants in the Greater fort Lauderdale, Florida area. In Chicago my favorite is Jordan's Place, named after Micheal Jordan the basketball star, sometimes he even is ther cooking up some concoction.
Favorite Dish: vegetable tempura
Crab and rice.
Again, I find it difficult to decide. I do like pub grub, and you will find plenty of Pubs dotted around the city. If i was to pick a restaurant, for reasonable pricing and good food, it would be The Lone Star, on Front Street, across from the Westen Hotel. It's kistchy tex mex, but the fajitas are to die for.
Two of you can get abasolutely stuffed for under $30.00. And yes, that does include a beer or two.
Favorite Dish: The free chips and salsa to start, and for dinner,FAJITAS! with extra guacamole, jalapenos on the side and lots of hot sauce.
Believe it or not McDonalds it;s completly differant than the english ones They have loads of Wendy;s as well a bit like Mac;s
Prices are cheap especially if you are taking kids. there are also small coffee shops everywere with so many different types of doughnuts it;s unbelieveable
Favorite Dish: Burger and I mean a proper beefburger fries and garden salad yummy
Too many to mention , but here goes.Chi Chi's for mexican.Olive Garden for Italin.Applebees for salads, and other great food.Sportsman's Den for seafood and steaks.
All of the above places have reasonable prices, and give enough ffod to fill you up.
In Clearwater Beach, the Bistro is the place to go! Great comfortable, but upscale atmosphere. Menu is continental with many gourmet items. Drinks are strong and oversized. A fun place!
Intimate and friendly
Favorite Dish: Cheese and pate plate. Great appetizer for 2 with homemade pate and a wonderful selection of cheeses served with a delicious stone ground mustard.
My favorite would have to be Wolfgang Puck's in Orange County, California or the on in Las Vegas, NV
There food will take you to a higher plain and will leave you there until you walk out of the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: ALL
IL Sorrento Old World Italian Cuisine for a nice, quiet evening out.
Campisis Egyptian Restaurant for atmosphere.
IL Sorrento--Great place for a romantic evening.
Campisis--Can get a little noisy at times, but that's OK.
Favorite Dish: IL Sorrento--The veal is to die for.
Campisis--It's hard to believe they have the best pizza in town.
Because I have a history in dining it is hard to say what is my favorite restaurant. I would rather take this opportunity to tell of my current favorite region. Without a doubt I would to say that South Florida by far has the most diverse selection of restarant that the east coast has to offer. And the one that I would have to say stands above the rest would have to be Crazy Waters Dining Experience.
Their atmosphere can be describe as the most tranquil living aquarium you ever experienced. It in fact is a series of aquariums and special lighting that takes yo to a place that is unlike anywhere under the sea.
Favorite Dish: 'They offer the best variety in World wide dining, but two top choices are seafood delights and the world of pastabilities.
