Re: “The V Bar, Springs Bikini Bar, The Ute and the Yeti

So the food is awful, but there's half naked women to make up for it? Eh... not anywhere I would go by myself, with my girlfriend's, my sister, my mother, or my boyfriend. I might be going out on a limb here, but I suspect there isn't much of a female clientele? Sounds like the bikini bar is a place my ex and his friends would frequent to awkwardly snicker at scantily clad bomb shells and throw out lame pick up lines whilst jabbing each other in the ribs.

Re: “Seeds Community Cafe, Wild Cider, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Cider in America is in full Renaissance. IIRC, it's actually the fastest growing segment of alcoholic drinks. It's well worth seeking out non-mass market ciders, although some are quite good. I got hooked on them a few years ago and am fortunate that a local pub carries a very large selection.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

Agree with Ralph, our All Natural Burgers were best fast food burger to date.
Agree with Jah, Green Line Grill has an awesome burger and fries.
If Carl's is homophobic then I'll not darken their door again, same for Chik-Fil-A.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

We had a coupon for 2 for 1 on the new "All Natural Burger." I could not justify paying full price, but what we had was as close to what they look like on TV as I've ever seen. The cheddar was real, the ground beef was lean and fresh tasting, the toppings were fresh and the bun was something a step up from a normal hamburger bun. I know nothing of Carl's Jr. politics, but for half price it was the best burger I have had from a fast food joint.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

Can't give Carl's Jr., or any company that actively hates on our homosexual brothers and sisters any of my dimes.
But nice try Carl's to jump on a bandwagon while still being a sexist, homophobic organization. Green Line Grill, Quijotes' Mexican Hamburger, Drifters, Short Stop, and BJ's Velvet Freeze are all much, much better alternatives than this hateful chain.

Re: “Caspian Cafe, Illegal Pete's, Stir

Banoffi Pie is an English dessert pie made from bananas, cream and toffee from boiled condensed milk (or dulce de leche), either on a pastry base or one made from crumbled biscuits and butter. Some versions of the recipe also include chocolate, coffee or both.

Its name is a portmanteau constructed from the words "banana" and "toffee".

Re: “La Bella Vita, HuHot Mongolian Grill and Kinfolks

My first Mongolian BBQ was at another USAF town, Belleville, IL, near Scott AFB. It's a bit of gimmick. Such places are popular in military areas where quantity matters more than quality. It's an All You Can Eat (AYCE) eatery for Asian food, healthier than American AYCE joints, but still, massive calorie intake is never wise eating.

Re: “Avery Brewing Co., Three Delights and Special Grounds Coffee

I started visiting Special Grounds because it's close to my house. Used it as a meeting place for my hiking group, and they were all thrilled with the warm welcome and personal attention- one woman declared she would never set foot in a Starbuck's again!

Re: “Alice's at the FAC, The Coffee Exchange, Schnitzel King

We actually go for the "soupy salad dressing". Go figure. It is all what you like.

Re: “Alice's at the FAC, The Coffee Exchange, Schnitzel King

From the context I guessed that "dope" means good. I double checked for slang dictionaries on the internet and found that http://onlineslangdictionary.com lists a category of "Words meaning good, okay, cool, awesome, fun" under "dope."

Re: “Alice's at the FAC, The Coffee Exchange, Schnitzel King

Pardon me - but what does "are dope" mean? My slang dictionary lacks a definition.

Re: “I Love Pho, Amy's Donuts, Fifty Fifty Coffee House

Thanks to this review, I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.

Re: “Pho 65, Canyon Coffee & Café, Stagecoach Inn

We really enjoyed the meal from Pho 65 last night - very tasty food and good portions. We had the steak and brisket pho and it was delicious. Also tried the springs rolls - kids love them, and the combination noodle bowl was excellent.

Re: “15C, Rustlers and Joey's Pizza

I've been to Joey's; it's good and worth patronizing.

Crowne Plaza wasn't much; nouveau riche Texans now give it a gag-worthy name. Ella-gon-tay. Pretentious to the max. I'll never go, not with a 10 commandments plaque in the lobby; monied Texans are the acme of greed and hypocrisy. They need to choose, are they a hotel or a church; make up your mind. Better yet, go back to Texas.
