Texadelphia Social Grill on Urbanspoon

I had lunch here a couple weeks ago, on 22 May. It wasn’t too bad. I got there about 1145, ordered, and then the noon lunch crowd poured in. Shortly thereafter, the rain poured down.

I did a Build Your Own cheesesteak. I got the Build Your Own, beef, large. Large is double meat and cheese. I had them add some lettuce and mayo.

No Cheeze Whiz. Not a true Philly for sure.

Regardless, it only took about five minutes for the sandwich to be delivered. As a Philly should be, it was hotter than heck. It was darn good, also. The bread was firm enough to keep the sandwich from falling apart, and it was tasty, too. The beef was cooked perfectly, and the cheese was all melted in. The lettuce and beef leaked all over the darn place, but that’s OK.

So it was a pretty good meal. The iced tea was pretty good. The sandwich came with chips and salsa, a different but nice touch. My check was $10 and some change. I look forward to another visit!

Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill on Urbanspoon

Raegan and the kids and I ate at ILTBAG shortly after it opened. Our opinion was, “it’s OK”. After my visit last week, that’s still the verdict.

Ian and I had dinner at ILTBAG last Thursday evening, as Raegan and Erin were at the St. John’s 8th Grade class dinner nearby. Ian got a ribeye, and I got roast chicken. The ribeye, he reported, wasn’t too bad. The chicken was unimpressive. The pieces were small, and had little flavor. The baked potato was small, and needed a bit more baking. The green beans were right out of a can. The iced tea was good.

Service was OK until we were ready to leave; I had to flag another server down to get our check so we could get back to where the car was parked to meet Raegan and Erin. Our check was $48.74. Not worth it; $17 for small and flavorless chicken. They have had their two chances.

Earl's Rib Palace on Urbanspoon

We had dinner here last afternoon. We had been to the Myriad (AKA Cox Convention Center) for Ian’s high school graduation, and he got to choose dinner, and chose Earl’s. This was convenient to the nearby theater where we were going to see the new Star Trek movie shortly thereafter.

Ian got ribs, Erin got a loaded baked potato, Raegan got a pulled pork sandwich, and I got a super loaded baked potato (a loaded potato that includes some meat, in my case, chopped brisket). We also had a pile of BBQ wings. All of this was excellent, and nothing was left.

The tea was excellent and kept refilled. Service was excellent. Our check was $44.03. Earl’s is darn fine BBQ.
