Taco Mamacita

Chattanooga has a variety of restaurants (and a few stands) that sell tacos. Some of the places sell authentic Mexican and/or Tex-Mex tacos. Taco Mamacita’s is not one of them. It does not claim to be. Taco Mamacita’s tacos are more of a creative fusion than the standard offerings. They reflect a variety of flavors […]

Victory Sandwich Bar in Decatur, Georgia

I almost walked past the Victory Sandwich Bar despite having the GPS on my phone active. While it was in part because its subtle signage, it was mostly my getting distracted by of all of the appealing dining options in the couple of blocks we walked from our car. The Victory Sandwich Bar is conveniently […]

Moonlight Bistro in Mentone, Alabama

Celebrating nature and the past is very easy to do atop Lookout Mountain around Mentone, Alabama. Much of the town (and much of the area around it) feels like a step back in time and the Moonlight Bistro is no exception. The older log cabin building sits along Alabama-117 with parking in the back. Upon […]

The Fantastic Old Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant

If you are looking for the best restaurants in the Chattanooga, TN, area you do not have to look any further than the Old Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant. To me, it is the epitome of what a great restaurant should be: friendly, relaxed, clean, great food, and reasonably priced. The owners and staff are very welcoming. […]

Bluegrass Grill

The Bluegrass Grill was on my list of places to try since the early, cold winter weekday morning (especially cold for the South) that I saw people lined up out the door as I drove past. I thought that they must have something especially good to get people in Chattanooga to brave the cold. Well, […]

Cardin’s Drive-In in Knoxville, TN

Cardin’s Drive-In in East Knoxville, Tennessee is an authentic blast from the past that is serving up some great food and ice cream today. Like some of my favorite places including Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl in Ohio and Stewart’s Drive-In in West Virginia, Cardin’s is not a modern take on a classic (like Sonic) but […]

Taggarts Ice Cream Parlor

I am not sure when we first discovered Taggerts. I do know that it was many years ago and it was not there original location, but at a store in North Canton that no longer exists. I also know that my dad loved their ice cream and I loved their lemon Pepsi…maybe it was Coke […]

Stilesboro Biscuits in Kennesaw, Georgia

Awesome! It may be the only word needed to describe Stilesboro Biscuits in Kennesaw, Georgia; it is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of eating one of their delicious biscuits. (Of course, it is rather unfortunate that when thinking of that word I also hear the song from The Lego Movie […]

Miller’s Bakery near Charm, Ohio

As we pulled into the parking lot, I could already smell the heavenly scent. I started to wonder how I had missed this place for all these years. Upon entering the store, I glanced at the cases filled with candies and baked goods. It was then that I started mentally kicking myself for not coming […]

Kabob-ster in Chattanooga

It is rare for me to find a restaurant where I like everything about it. However, that is what has happened with Kabob-ster in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Kabob-ster has great Middle Eastern cuisine at reasonable prices in a clean, bright casual atmosphere. It is a non-chain, local establishment in an area of town that does not […]
