Whenever I hear Texas Roadhouse, my stomach starts to rumble. Come hungry because their food is mouthwatering. Texas Roadhouse is famous for its rolls and cinnamon bread, which are meals by themselves. The Texas Roadhouse is a chain restaurant, and while I went to the one in Nashua, New Hampshire,...

Everyone’s been there before. It’s noon. Your stomach is rumbling, and there’s no leftovers in the fridge or burgers to thaw, and your buddies want to get lunch. Pulling your wallet from your back pocket you find a lone ten dollar bill. Holding the bill in your hand you stop and think; there’s...

The outside of El Dorado Tavern doesn’t scream Mexican restaurant, and its interior is similiarly understated.  The only Mexican features: a few sombreros and other small south-of-the-border decorations. A welcome touch was a small basket of chips on the table with two little containers of salsa...

Homemade food is a wonderful thing. Ever date someone else because their mother was just such a good cook? The thing is, there often isn’t time to cook something fancy during the course of a normal day: work, school, and children get in the way. Also when cooking for others, tastes don’t always match...

As a child, creemee stands and snack bars were a favorite summer destination, and though I have fallen in love with a few during my lifetime including Seb’s Snack Bar in South Hero, Joe’s Snack Bar in Jericho, and The Pine Cone Snack Bar in Richford, nothing beats Cajun’s. With my grandparents’...

Henry’s Diner is a weird-looking mint-green stucco building with a yellow wood growth jutting out of it. Above this polyp is an old neon red sign that says Henry’s Diner. When I first saw it, I thought there was no possible way that this unattractive building should have a line of 10 people coming...

It’s not often I am able to go to Burlington and actually have money to spend on things. So when I do, I have to eat out, and it has to be good. On recommendation, I went to Bove’s. On the outside Bove’s was pretty unremarkable. The neon sign was the only piece distinguishing it as a restaurant,...

Warm, gooey cheese, a mozzarella-cheddar blend. Delicious bacon strewn haphazardly across the pie. Sautéed onions. Thinly sliced apples. Liberal amounts of spinach. Finishing it off is an ever-so-subtle drizzle of perfectly diluted maple syrup. Interested? Aptly named The Green Mountain Special, this...
