    Starbucks: Coffee Buzz

    by grandmaR Updated Jan 10, 2014

    The first Starbucks was a store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. They offered fresh-roasted whole bean coffees. The name was inspired by Moby Dick and the seafaring tradition of the early coffee traders.

    Since we do not drink coffee, we have never been in a Starbucks. Although they apparently do also have pastries, sandwiches including breakfast sandwiches, salads and ice cream. They are reputed to be expensive. One of the things that people might be interested in is that they have free wi-fi.

    Cheeseburger in Paradise: For Parrotheads

    by grandmaR Written May 25, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the story of this chain as told by Jimmy Buffett

    The myth of the cheeseburger in paradise goes back to a long trip on my first boat, the Euphoria. We had run into some very rough weather crossing the Mona Passage between Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and broke our new bowsprit. The ice in our box had melted, and we were doing the canned-food-and-peanut-butter diet.

    The vision of a piping hot cheeseburger kept popping into my mind. We limped up the Sir Francis Drake Channel and into Roadtown on the island of Tortola, where a brand new marina and bar sat on the end of the dock like a mirage. We secured the boat, kissed the ground, and headed for the restaurant.

    To our amazement, we were offered a menu that featured an American cheeseburger. We gave particular instructions to the waiter - to which very little attention was paid. It didn't matter, for they were the realization of my fantasy burgers on the trip. That's the true story.

    Favorite Dish: These are mostly east coast restaurants (alphabetically)
    Delaware, Florida Maryland New Jersey New York South Carolina Virginia
    With some in the midwest in Illinois Indiana Kansas Michigan Nebraska Ohio Wisconsin

    They have twelve versions of a cheeseburger, and also fish and chips, salmon, BBQ ribs, salads, wings and similar food. They also have what they advertise as hand dipped milk shakes, and a really good dessert which is called a Choco Nachos that I like. I also like their cole slaw which has raisins in it. Bob likes the milk shakes and the fish and chips.

    This restaurant has about 10 TV's with sports channels and is pretty noisy. A lot of families with kids come here and it is a good place for them as if they make a little noise it won't be noticed.

    Long Horn Steakhouse: Eastern Steakhouse

    by grandmaR Updated May 21, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Long Horn Steakhouses - although they say "We’ve taken the best of the West and created a place where you can relax and unwind in a comfortable, inviting atmosphere." - are (with the exception of the restaurants in Missouri and Kansas) east of the Mississippi.

    We finally went to a Longhorn in Fort Walton Beach FL. It was very popular and there were people waiting outside for tables.

    Bob had a half rack of baby back ribs for $13.99

    I had a 12 oz. ribeye with a huge sweet potato for $15.99.

    We didn't have dessert although it would have been interesting to see what the fried cheesecake was like

    We now have a LongHorn locally,

    Favorite Dish: Steaks from their menu on line

    Flo’s FiletTM
    Go with the Flo! Fresh tenderloin cooked to perfection. Our most tender steak. 7 oz. or 9 oz.

    A favorite! Tender, juicy and flavorful, cut fresh from the rib loin. 12 or 16 oz.

    New York Strip
    The steak lover’s choice. Sink your teeth into hearty flavor and robust taste. 11 oz. or 14 oz.

    The Renegade
    Hearty USDA Choice top sirloin. Seasoned with Prairie Dust™. 8 oz. or 12 oz.

    Bacon Wrapped Filet
    Our fresh 9 oz. filet is wrapped in thick-cut, peppered bacon and then chargrilled over an open flame.

    Texas T-Bone
    Every cowboy’s dream. A New York strip and a filet in one cut. Chargrilled over an open flame. 16 oz.

    The LongHorn
    Our specialty. A giant USDA Choice porterhouse with a New York strip and a large filet in one thick, delicious cut. Chargrilled over an open flame. 20 oz.

    Bleu Cheese Crusted Filet
    A tender 9 oz. filet, cooked the way you like, and topped with melted bleu cheese. Served atop a marinated, grilled portabella mushroom.

    Ruby Tuesday: To Salad Buffet or Not To Salad Buffet

    by grandmaR Updated May 11, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ruby Tuesday was started in 1972 by four college buddies. They don't give any information on the website as to how many restaurants there are or even what states they are in, but I know they are along the eastern seaboard.

    They have signature biscuits (which sometimes come late or not at all - they don't seem to be able to keep up with them), and you can have a salad bar as part of your meal, but you can have a meal without it.

    Our local Ruby Tuesday will also pack up your food "To Go"

    Favorite Dish: In March of 03, I had the steak tacos. They were good, but not as good as at ChiChis. For one thing, the tacos were cold, the steak was in big chunks so it was hard to get into the tortilla. I got 4 tortillas, chunks of steak on sauteed bell peppers, rice, grated cheese, chunks of tomatoes, grated lettuce a dollop of sour cream and a little pot of salsa.

    My husband had fish, and with it came a huge tree of brocolli. He also had iced tea and I had strawberry lemonade.

    We didn't get any bread with the meal. The service was OK but it was hard to get the check.

    I had the chocolate 'short' cake (as opposed to the tall cake) for dessert - that was very good.

    The bill was $29 before the tip but after a $10.00 credit.

    9/03: The bill with a free entree was $21.27 before the tip. That was for one entree with a salad bar and two iced teas.

    9/05: We went to Ruby Tuesdays again on a Thursday night - not crowded and were seated right away. It was a new menu and didn't have any price for the non-alcoholic drinks. The waitress said they were $1.85. Bob got the coconut shrimp and I had a stacked chicken. That apparently is the entree between mashed potatoes and onion rings. They were both around $11 each. I got a blonde brownie ($4.99) for dessert and mostly just ate the ice cream and brought the brownie home.

    Another visit 2012 - we do not usually do the salad bar because I have trouble standing long enough to pick or waiting for other people to pick. We had a nice dinner - I had the Berry Fusion to drink (non-alcoholic $2.99), a petite sirloin $11.99 and Italian cake $4.99, and Bob had the half rack of ribs for $13.99.

    2013 - We get coupons for lower price meals in the mail from Ruby Tuesday so we go every time we get the coupon - maybe once every 6 weeks. Bob has taken to ordering a half rack of ribs everywhere. I had the surf and turf - a lobster tail and a steak.

    The Big Texan: One of the Musts on the Route 66 - Big T

    by akkipaa Updated Dec 28, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I travelled through part of U.S on off season, May, and this was one pearl on my trip, it is tourist trap, but anyway it was crowded (in positive way), living, calm, cool, different, what so ever. I don't like messing food, but if you volunteer to eat 72 ounce steak, you can do it, whist it is a competition. Perfect service, good food, lot of beer selections and live music, what else a tired motorist would like to have?

    Eating competition was ongoing, two guys (there are room and counting for six) were trying, or struggling, to eat 72oz beef and finally both failed. I didn't even imagine to try and my recommendation to you is: don't try this here or your home.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely 72 ounce steak is famous but, my recommendation, no favourite, I selected smaller one. Take what ever you can eat, if I remember correctly, we selected 12oz sirloins.

    Second cons (two last photos): the place is safe, as you can see from pictures and if you get bored out there, you can take a shooting round in the amusement area.

    Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament: Dinner Theater For The Whole Family!

    by lmkluque Updated Nov 11, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1093 AD is the time, you are one of a thousand guests of the royal family, at a royal tournament. Feast on a hearty four course banquet served medieval style. Fearless knights on horseback compete in games of skill and accuracy. It is great fun for the whole family!

    The price, which varies from one location to another, may seem a bit high, but considering you get to travel back in time, experience an evening of thrilling entertainment and a four course dinner, it's really a bargain.

    California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, South Carolina, Maryland, New Jersey and there is one located in Toronto Ontario, Canada!

    Favorite Dish: The Bill of Fare includes:
    Garlic Bread
    Vegetable Soup
    Roasted Chicken

    Cheese Factory: More Than Cheese Cake

    by lmkluque Updated Nov 11, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A full service restaurant chain located in at least 25 states of the U.S.A. Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, Washington.

    This restaurant is a step up from other chains, usually found in more upscale areas and usually the decor is more modern. The service is attentive and they are most busy at typical meal hours.

    Favorite Dish: The menu is extensive and to be as brief as possible I'll list a few items I particularly like.
    Appetizers: Thai Lettuce Wraps, the Bruschetta or the Mixed Baby Lettuce Salad.
    Lunch Pizza, pepperoni, and Salad.
    Specialties: Chicken Madeira
    Pastas: Bistro Shrimp Pasta
    Seafood & Fish: Shrimp Scampi
    Steaks & Chops: Grilled Pork Chops or the Petite Filet
    Salads: Cobb Salad
    Desserts: Fabulous Chocolate Mousse Cake
    Cheesecakes: Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake. Plus, there are 34 more to choose from.

    Choices on the menu do change periodically so some of these may not be offered when you visit. In any case, the food has always been pretty well made each time I've tried any of their stores.

    Denny's: Located All Over the Country!

    by lmkluque Updated Nov 11, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Denny's is a nationwide chain that is popular with the average American because the prices are reasonable--frequently there are Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner specials too--and a family can have a decent meal without breaking the bank. (Refills on coffee, tea, soft drinks and lemonade, are not charged for.)

    The truth is that most of my epicurean friends will think less of me for suggesting Denny's on an international travel site. However, it is my belief that many world travelers would like to have the option of spending less for most of their meals thereby saving enough to have a really terrific meal at the best place in town.

    There is a Denny's in every state of the U.S.A. and they offer casual dining--means: come as you are. The prices are low to moderate and most locations are opened 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Which comes in handy when you are very hungry and every other place in town is closed.

    The decor/ambience of each restaurant is uniformly pleasant and with the exception of the busiest times of the day, they are kept pretty clean. This goes for the quality of service as well, when the place is really busy there will be a waiting period to be seated./to get your order.

    Favorite Dish: Of course, it may be more interesting while passing through a small town to stop in at the "Diner," where all the locals go, but it has been my experience that grease is the main ingredient in the recipes at most of these places --that's where we get the phrase, "Greasy Spoon" when refering to "local" Diner's.

    The flavor of the food at Denny's is good and they offer "Fit Fare" items on the menu that contain less than 15 grams of fat. They have a lower priced Senior menu--for customers age 55 and over and a children's menu for kids under 10 years old.

    Most of the menu items are pictured, so if you are unfamiliar with our language, you can see what you will be ordering before it gets to your table.

    Denny's is most popular for its breakfasts served around the clock and if mingling with the locals is what you hope to do, just pop in at any Denny's (especially after 10 pm) and you will see nothing but.

    My favorite items on the menu are:
    All-American Slam
    Cream of Broccoli soup, Mushroom-Swiss Burger
    Buffalo Wings
