About This Blog


First off, let me just say that my family and I are not major food critics. We aren't renowned chefs, although we do enjoy making our own personal mark in the kitchen. And we are not special secret shoppers who go around rating restaurants. We are just your average family who love to travel and find that cooking sometimes is an inconvenience in our busy lives. We are not any kind of experts whatsoever. Basically we just love food and we love to try different places whether it's local or in our many family road trips.

This blog was actually put together at last minute. It wasn't planned at all. What made me think about creating this blog was the thought that I have found myself completely addicted to Foursquare and Yelp.   Most of the time I am checking into restaurants all over town in Mobile, AL on Foursquare, especially fast food spots. And I have found myself making sure I write reviews on the dine-in restaurants we tend to go to while taking our family road trips. Especially if it's a spot that we have seen on Man vs Food and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.  I thought that maybe creating a blog would be a good way to let others know what we think about these restaurants. Places that normal, average people would eat at.

In no way will you see me posting about restaurants that cost like $100 per plate and you have to dress in formal wear just to wait for a seat at the bar. Average families this day and age don't have that kind of money. At least I know we don't. You will see me posting about places you can take your children or fast food restaurants I feel should be mentioned whether they give exceptional service or they have the nastiest food in town.  You don't have to take my word on whether you should go or not. The choice is totally yours, but I will say that many of the places you find me posting about tend to have the same review on Yelp from many others. 

Feel free to tell us your favorite local spot to eat or give your review in comments. I want this blog to a venue of communication, so you are more than welcome to contribute.  If you are on Twitter, your follow will be appreciated. From time to time before we make our road trips I will be asking for suggestions on where to eat. This blog is basically all about good food and good fun with a few of the crappy places thrown in. 


I hope you enjoy my blog reviews!!!
