Top five restaurants

So I figure I would start blogging again. I am hoping I can start blogging every Sunday as a journal and catch up to keep me busy. Last night was girls night. I never did this before with my family but it is something that Matthews' family does. Whenever conference comes around the men go to priesthood while we, the ladies, get pedicures or go to a movie. This time we got pedicure. After our pedicures we went to Buca de Beppos had some outstanding food and it motivated me to blog today my top five restaurants.

1. Texas Roadhouse

Most amazing everything. I enjoy their smothered chicken with some of their maple rolls, house salad, and stuffed baked potatoes. Not too pricey at all for the amazing food you get. Call ahead for a reservation otherwise you will be waiting for a hour or so.

2. Italian Village

I remember as a child my parents would take us here on special occasions and we would get our own personal pizza. It was amazing and so delicious. I still love going there. It is newly remodeled and as always you can get take out. Another long wait but well worth it.

3. Chili's

Always something for everyone to find and enjoy at Chili's. I have multiple favorites such as Quesadilla Explosion Salad, Chicken Crispers, Chicken Fajitas, and so much more. I love the call ahead seating option.

4. The Dodo

Ok I usually only go here for the amazing deserts that are made daily and change daily as well. But I do love their Ham and Swiss, and Dodo club sandwich. Such great, fresh, made to order meals. I usually call ahead to see if there is a wait, usually the wait is as long as the drive so once our name is on the list when we arrive we are seated quickly.

5. Morelia's Restaurant

Consistently the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been too. I always take a pint of salsa home with me each time I go. Amazing food and service. Again you will have to wait to be seated but it is so worth it. I love take out here as well. Larry Miller Combo is the best there. No website just millions of reviews!

So there you have it. Have you been to any of these restaurants? What did you think of them? Any favorites from the menu? What are you favorite restaurants?

Hi McManda,
I like Texas Roadhouse and Chilie's. I went to The Dodo eons ago. It was fun. I have never been to the other two you mention.
My new favorite is the 1810 Tavern in Bridgewater, PA. It was built in 1810. Beautiful spot and amazing seafood fettucini.
Love your green nails girl.

Lol. Oh Leslie. You must try the other restaurants, they are to die for! 1810 Tavern sounds delightful. I will need to make it there one day. Thanks for reading my blog!

I love the Dodo and Texas Roadhouse. We can't go to Texas Roadhouse anymore because of the peanuts. I'd Love to try the Italian Village, it sounds like fun! Jose and I had our very first date at chili's so it also has a soft spot in my heart :)
