You don't know Pizza if you have not been to Big Ed's!!!!

Big Ed's continues 33-year tradition as area landmark.

While in East Tennessee it would be worth your while to make a trip to Oak Ridge and head up to Big Ed's.
The BEST to say the least!!!!

Mine is Outback Steakhouse. Sure, I love Ruth's Chris too, but Outback is way more realistic.

Oh, and I like many Japanese restaurants. Here in the Jacksonville area, I like Shogun the best.

Best restaurant in the world, IMO, is the Shintaro in the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Will be there February 15th after the Shot Show. If you go ask for Mark, the manager, and tell him Colonel Klink sent you. You won't regret it.

I'll be having dinner there next Friday night. Wife and I are driving up for dinner, doing the B&B thing for a couple nights and comming home.

I'll only be able to eat at Lobster House though. 2 Mile is close for the season:( Guess I'll have to eat at the "Boat House" on Saturday

In New Orleans, I still prefer Commander's Palace. In Atlanta, steak is done nicely at McKendrick's. In Memphis, the Rendezvous or Corky's is a must visit. I like Shula's in south Florida (several locales). The Ruth's Chris in Mobile is the best Ruth's I have ever eaten at. Their West Indies salad and seared tuna are to die for. In D.C., for BBQ I like Red, Hot, and Blue. There is one in Ridgeland (Jackson) MS, too (or at least used to be).I have a real thing for Thai and I love sushi. Several places around town attract me for lunch and dinner in any given week.

Other chains that I like include Carraba's (Outback owned), Outback, Olive Garden, P.F. Chang's, and Longhorn.

Having done work at three of these facilities kitchens (and other areas of these facilities) as subcontractor, and having been employed by one of them directly, I can concur with your choices of these as being great restaurants, though none are favorites for me. Had a great dinner at Piatti on San Ysidro in Montecito a couple of weeks ago which was equal to any meal I have had at El Encanto, San Ysidro Ranch, or The Biltmore. (I was surprised to learn when I looked up Piatti on the web that they are a chain! I'll have to check them out up here in Nor Cal.) I spent two or three weeks working on a project at the Biltmore once, ate there every day!

My favorite Santa Barbara Resturant is La Supa Rica on upper Milpas street. This shack (literally) has the BEST mexican food in the world. It is also Julia Child's favorite Mexican Resturant.

When in San Fransisco my choice is: The Stinking Rose

When in Sacramento it is Biba's - It is not on the menu, but you can ask for (and get)Gorgonzola Gnochi... IT IS HEAVEN!!! Either get it as an appetizer for all (everyone is afraid of it when I take them there, but everyone ends up loving it) or order it as a main dish. If I am picking up the tab, I simply order it for everyone as the appetizer, if I am not picking up the tab, I have to try to talk everyone into ordering it!

Wow - I have attended or hosted probably a dozen or more meetings at the Santa Barbara Inn, but I don't think I have ever eaten at the Citronelle. Perhaps I'll have to give it a try.

You can get some great weekday B&B deals in Santa Barbara. I was shocked at how cheap it can be! (Compared to typical/regular SB lodging.) I'll never stay in a hotel in SB again. (At least not weekdays!)

Lansky's Pizza, Pasta and Cheesesteak Sandwiches - Omaha Nebraska

In my opinion, simple foods and unpretentious service is what makes a restaurant the best.

To update my list for the West Coast:

Samoa Cookhouse- Eureka, CA

They serve only one thing for breakfast, one for lunch, one for dinner, but you are able to eat as much as you can stuff your face with. Good home cooking stuff: turkey, fried chicken, baked ham, pot roast & mashed potatoes, pancakes, eggs and sausage for breakfast..very good^c ^c ^c

The Hole in The Wall- Umapine, OR

Little nondescript bar about 12 miles from the Middle of Nowhere in northeastern Oregon. They only have Coors and Bud, but the burger platters are huge and the prices are so damn cheap. Me and my dad went there, had 4 beers a piece plus the burger platter (HUGE burgers), and the bill was 15 bucks. ;P ;P ;P ;P

NOW THAT'S CHEAP!!!;f

other favorite restaurants in NO particular order:
Dar Maghreb (Moroccan cuisine) -- Los Angeles and Palm Springs

Matali (Indian) -- New York City

Akash (Indian) -- Cincinnati (the closest to the Matali i ever had!)

Alexander's Steakhouse (unfortunateley now closed) -- Columbia MO. the best steakhouse i ever ate at.

and i can't remember the name of the place for sure, but i think it was called the Four Seasons. it used to be in Sarasota FL.

They are only in Colorado and have all won awards. As far as a national chain, I go to some, but I can't really say any are my favorites. I've eatan at some of the 5 star, take out a loan to eat at restaurants in Vail, Aspen, etc. but the consistently best meals I have had have been at the Redstone Inn in Redstone, CO. Great food at a very decent price. Outback is pretty good, but the waits can be over an hour. I do like Johnny Carinos too which is fairly new to the Denver area. Qdoba makes pretty decent fast food burritos and I'll settle for Chipotle. I tend to drift towards BBQ and Mexican since my wife is an excellent cook, but does not make Mexican or BBQ much.

For mexican food in the denver area, you need to go to the Brewery Bar II on 150 Kalamath in denver. Chile rellonos smothered green are the best ever meal. You will suffer the next day probably. Even if you like mexican food. but it's the best. The record for bowls of green is either 11 or 13. Eat one with a spoon and no tortillas or anything and tell me how you think knocking back a dozen would be.;P

The other one in Denver you need to try is Benny's at 7th and Grant. Very good. Fun atmosphere. A lot of people like Blue Bonnet, but I prefer both BBII and Bennys.


For Italian you need to go to Carmine's on Penn. Then Gaetano's on the north side. Then Patsy's on the north side. Then Saucy Noodle.

May you never eat at an outback or carino's until you have eaten at these places. (If you haven't eaten at them) They are all in Denver, so if you eat in the suburbs you may be screwed. But get to denver to eat sometimes.

Good you go to Brothers BBQ. I have not eaten there, as when I moved away they were either just getting going or hadn't opened. I know the father of the guys who own it, but not the sons. Father a good guy.

Oh, for reasonable French food in Denver try LeCentral if it is still open. Good value.
