A friend of ours first recomended Mama Teresa's and since our first visit we have been hooked. It's a casual family style Italian restaurant. No frills with tables and booths you enter and seat yourself. The menus are already on the table when you have a seat.
The menu is quite extensive with pizza, sandwich, pasta, meat, chicken,fish and appetizer choices.
On our first visit here, Liz ordered the gnocchi with marinara sauce and I ordered the Tortellini Alfredo. Both meals came with a huge salad and a basket of warm italian bread. When are meals were served the portions were huge. We both barely ate 6 bites of our entree and we were full. The waitress was very nice and wrapped our food to go.
The food here is always execellent and the portions huge. This is one of our favorite and we enjoy coming here as a couple or with friends.
**Mon-Saturday there is a $5 lunch specials menu until 3pm.**
Favorite Dish: The Tortellini Alfredo is quite nice...even re-heated the next day it is still excellent. The penne vodka here is also good. Liz loves their gnocchi in marinara sauce and their cheese ravioli with vodka sauce.
The best seafood ravioli I have ever eaten is served at Mama Theresa's. The ravioli are stuffed with shrimp, crab and lobster and served with a vodka sauce. The ravioli were out of this world good and the sauce was excellent. It's normally on the specials menu but the waitress has informed us that we can request it any time.

Planet Pizza is a typical pizza joint with some tables. They serve a variety of sandwiches, salads, calzones, pastas, italian dishes and pizza of course. The menu has a variety of classic pizzas such as pepperoni, mushroom and sausage as well as specialty pizza like baked ziti pizza, sicilian pizza and buffalo chicken pizza. We often find ourseleves here for a slice of pizza before catching a movie or Liz will pick up a pie on her way home from work.
There are several locations of Planet Pizza (Greenwich, Stamford and White Plains) but we like this location the best. The food here is always good and I've never been dissapointed by the freshness or quality.
Favorite Dish: The Grandma's pizza is our favorite. It resembles a sicilian pizza but is thinner like focacia bread. It is topped with garlic, plum tomatoes, basil and frsh mozzarella. The crust is perfect and crisp, the mozarella is fresh and creamy and the tomatos and basil are so good. It really is an awesome pizza. Liz enjoys it because it reminds her of her Great Granmother's pizza. So it's not unusual for me to come home to a Grandma's Pizza waiting for me.
The garlic knots are also very good here but you will stink of garlic for a day despite brushing your teeeth and showering. The white pizza here is very good and not soggy. The gorgonzola salad is very good and piled high with gorgonzola pieces. The meatball parm sandwich is very good and too big to finish...I barely make it through a half. They also have a Chicken Marsala Pizz which is out of thei world. I never tjought it would be good but it's phenomenal.

Sundown Saloon to me is the kind of place I wish were my local, at least when I wanted to have a local.
A very relaxed and comfortable bar in the center of the room with tables around the edges you will always feel at home here.
The highlight though is their happy hour. Monday to Friday from 4pm until 7pm some drafts are $2 and most appetizers are only $5. The drink prices are nice but the apps are out of this world. I truly love the nachos here and can say the spinach dip is also quite nice.
Liz and I often find ourselves here for happy hour and a snack either together or with friends.
Favorite Dish: The nachos here are excellent. They are served piping hot on a metal tray and smothered with cheese, scallions and beans. Chili, salsa and sour cream are in bowls on the side to dip the chips in. I am a big fan of the chili dip; it's very good and quite tasty. The spinach dip is also quite nice. It's served warm and cheesey with crispy tortilla triangles for dipping. We just tried the fried calamari here and Wow it is good. Perfectly crispy with a spicy aioli dipping sauce. The burgers here are also very good and juicy but we usually prefer just to grab some appetizers.
**The Margaritas here are very good**

This place is tiny. They have two counters and that's it for seating areas but the food is amazing. I am so glad I finally tried this place.I assure you the burgers here are worth the trip as I have learned.
We are constantly coming back about once a week now and really have to say that now that I have settled on the products here I like the best, that I'd not suggest going anywhere else for burgers.
Favorite Dish: My faorite is the single with swiss or American with sauteed onions, fries and a vanilla milkshake. Liz likes a single with american and sauteed onions with a cinnamon shake. The burgers are served on thick slices of toasted white bread which is better than you might think. The burgers are among the best I've ever had. Thick and juicy, you really only need a single. The french fries were thickly cut and sprinkled with sea salt making them extremely salty and at the same time very tasty.
**The brownies (when available) are incredible. They are a must try on a visit to Kory.**

The service here is hit or miss. The waste of time at the hostess station rates right up there with the redsox fans. Well I've been back here again and again and my stance stays. The hostesses here are clueless and honestly quite bad. Where they suggest to seat you is without thought and flatly idiotic. I could really do without them. But once again the desserts and waitress make up for it.
The place is quite spacious with a nice bar areas when you first enter with plenty of stools and a few small tables. They have live music here during the week and it really gets packed especialy with the happy hour people. The dining room is a nice size but sme of the table configurations do not make any sense. The outdoor patio dining in the summer is my favorite part of this place. Liz and I enjoy a few desserts or some nachos on the patio before heading off to a movie across the street or for some shopping.
As for the food it is also hit or miss. I have had bad steak sandwiches here that were gross and tasted like the grill. I have had good nachos that were crispy and piled high with toppings and I have had soggy nachos. The one thing here that is a constant good is the desserts. The apple crisp (when available) is incredibly good....and in my top five list. The Tollhouse cookie pie is also an incredible dessert and my back up when the crisp is not available. The brownie sundae is also good as is the apple pie.
Favorite Dish: The apple crisp, tollhouse cookie pie, brownie sundae and apple pie are the resons to come here.

We had seen the sign for Super uper Weenie along the I-95 interstate for years but never stopped in until we saw it featured on the Food Network show:Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Now Super Duper Weenie is the place we frequent regularly for one of their delicious hotdogs. The place is right off of the highway so it's an easy on/off if your just pasing by on the highway. The place itself is on the small side with some counter top stools and some back area seating. The menu is posted on the left side wall by the soda coolers and has a variety of hot dogs, burgers, grilled cheese, sandwiches and french fies.
My favorite hot dog is called the New Englander. It's hot dog covered in Sauerkraut, Bacon, Mustard, Sweet Relish & Raw Onion seved on a hot dog bun. It is incredibly good...that says alot since I'm not a big hot dog fan. Liz likes her hotdog with just mustard and sauerkraut. The fries here are very good and crisy. A large order though is enough for two people to share. SDW also carries a nice selection of Boylans sodas which are some of our favorites especially the Root Beer, Black Cherry and Birch beer. It's a nice local place with good food and a nice casual atmosphere. ...that's why we love going to Super Duper Weenie.
Favorite Dish: The New Englander Hot Dog is my favorite with a side of fires and a diet Boylan's Root Beer. It totally hits the spot!

Panda Pavillion is right over the border from Portchester on Route 1(Putnam Avenue) so it's very easy to get here. The place is small with tables scattered throughout the dining room. In the summer there is an outdoor patio for dining. When you are seated there is a nice basket of crunchy noodles with duck sauce and spicy mustard for dipping. The potions are good and come with the expected rice, tea and fortune cookies. Then menu has the usual Chinese dishes and a large assortment of sushi plates. I tend to be a creature of habit and order the Orange Chicken every time we are here. Liz goes back and forth between the Beef Lo Mein and the Shrimp and Cashews. Their spare ribs, egg rolls and fried puffy shrimp are good appetizers to start the meal. The service here is always friendly and attentive.
Favorite Dish: The Orange Chicken here is very good. It's a large portion and comes with white rice. The Puffy fried shrimp are very good and come with a sweet and sour red sauce for dipping. I also enjoy their egg rolls; nice and crisp with a good filling. The ribs are very tasty and nicely cooked. Liz enjoys their beef Lo Mein and the Shrimp with Cashews.
I recently tried their Singapore Noodles (I love Singapore Noodles) they were just okay; not the best I have had but I had to try them when I saw them on the menu.

My wife and I are huge fans of Indian food and often find ourselves in Milford shopping, visiting friends or just passing through. Coromandel is a wonderful Indian restuarnt that we very much enjoy for their delicious food and attentive service.
Locate in a strip mall on Route 1; it can be easy to miss this place. It's tucked away in a corner of the strip mall so it's pretty much hidden if it is dark out. The inside of the restaurant is very spacious with plenty of seating. The interior is decorated in vibrant colors, wall murals and interesting lighting fixtures. Liz and I have our favorite booth; which we are often seated.
The menu has a nice variety of meat, lamb, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes. They also have a nice assortment of cocktails and beer. Daily specials are in the menu and they are very accomodating if you want an appetizer turned into an entree sized portion.
Portion size here is quite large; so expect to have a doggie bag (we always do). The food here is incredibly fresh, delicious and flavorful. The service here is spot on and very friendly; it makes me miss my favorite Indian joint in Herndon Virginia.
They also have daily lunch specials as well as weekend buffets on Saturday and Sunday. The buffet is quite good with a nice mix of veg and non veg items.
This place is also an AA I-dine(except Saturday); which is a bonus.
Favorite Dish: Liz and I love their Vegetable Samosa as an appetizer. The triangle pastry with spiced potatoes and green peas is perfectly cooked and flavorful. I like that the peas and potatoes are more mashed together than some other Samosas I have had before. I also like the lamb Samosa which has recently become a favorite. To drink I love the Kingfisher or Taj Mahal lagers; quite nice with the meal. My wife likes a lime soda that they make for her with fresh limes, juice and club soda; it is very refreshing and I thought it was very good.
The Lamb Sagwala is my favorite dish. the meat is perfectly cooked and seasoned. I love dipping my Garlic Naan in the spinach gravy. By the way their nann is incredibly good; we love to split an order of the garlic.
My wife leans more towards the vegetarian items and loves their Aloo Gobhi Palak. She has raved about the flavor and after tasting I can agree it is a very nice taste.

This is a place Liz used to frequent with her friend. So after hearing so much about it and our current plans of the day busted, we headed up here.
Its an interesting place with 3 levels. The bar is on the middle level and half a floor down is the lower seating area and half a floor up is the upper one. So those on the lower level where we were get a view of everyone's feet at the bar. NICE! (Kidding)
The service here was horrible. It seemed like as soon as I decided I wasn't going to drink we ceased to exist. Our drinks were refilled when our food arrived and we NEVER saw our waiter again. We had to flag down another girl there to give us our check and then she disappeared and we had to give the money to the hostess on our way out the door.
I hope she put it in her pocket.
Favorite Dish: The food was no better. Liz's burger even though asked medium was a hockey puck. Super well done and although the best part of the meal came on her plate in the fries, we were disappointed.
My meal was to be the Nachos. I'd been wanting some for a while now and was happy to hear great things about them on the ride up here. At least I'm glad she'd had good nachos here previously because the ones I got should have been dumped in the garbage. I ate about half of them anyway because I was so hungry but that was it. They were badly burned and as Liz says in her tip, cremated.
All drinks but sodas are limited to only one refill. Seems like a NAD (nickel and dime) policy to me but what ever. Some place as bad as this should not be thinking they can mess around with customers in such a way.
Will I come back? No way, No chance, No how

I have no special memories from a visit in this restaurant. Probably the best is the location and the view from this place. The food was ok but I would say that it is rather place for some drinks not a place to eat. And my friends said that there were more dishes in menu in previous years and the atmosphere was much nicer.
