(Restaurant) Mongolian Grille in La Frontera, Austin, TX

Early last year, I had dinner here with a friend of mine at her suggestion. Oh my goodness. This is the best idea in the entire world, I’m convinced. Not only is everything reasonably healthy, but you can chose exactly what you want. If you don’t like it, well, it’s your own darn fault, isn’t […]

(Restaurants) Nagoya Steak and Sushi in Austin, TX

My family of 2 adults, a 6 year old girl and 9 year old boy went here tonight and it was fabulous. My husband and I visited during their soft opening and felt it was a little too pretentious. Well, they’ve apparently chilled out and were also much more “together’ on what was going on. […]

(Restaurant) Saccone’s Pizza on 620 in Austin, TX

This is easily the best pizza in our area (Anderson Mill). We have had it delivered and picked up in the past from the old location (which burned down) and from this newer location. Earlier this week, we ate in the restaurant for the first time. The first thing I noticed is that the place […]

(Restaurant) Nagoya Steak and Sushi in Austin, TX

This a rough review for me because I have mixed feelings over this place. The good – the food is excellent and it would be a nice place to go for dinner at night with your husband or business associate. I guess I have easy/casual tastes. I like my restaurants with a little less “pretentious” […]

(Restaurant) Momiji Sushi & Hibachi at 620/183 in Austin, TX

I first saw Momiji not too long after it opened and was hemming and hawing over whether or not to give it a shot. I LOVED vegetarian maki rolls and I like hibachi, but… dude. It’s in a strip mall. Right next to Lowe’s. Really now? When I made an appointment with a colleague, she […]

(Restaurant) Valentino’s Seafood in Houston, TX

Looking for great food at a great price? How about terrific service and a wonderful, fun atmosphere? If you are, stay away from Valentino’s. When we arrived, the restaurant was dead quiet except for a movie playing in the bar. We had 3 kids with us, and this seemed perfect. We were seated so they […]

(Restaurant) Latitude 2802 in Rockport, TX

Looking for something a little more “artsy” while visiting the coast? Tired of the same old boiled seafood? Latitude 2802 is an amazing mix of art and dining located in the old downtown of Rockport. Make your reservation and be shown straight to your seat, or walk-in and browse the art gallery while you wait. […]

(Restaurant) Los Comales in Rockport, TX *gag*

I realize we are used to good Mexican food here in Austin, but bad really doesn’t even begin to explain how horrible this place in Rockport really was… there were 8 of us and not one of us liked this place. Many times my family will pick restaurants based on how many cars are out […]

(Restaurant) Paradise Key Island Grill in Rockport, TX

This restaurant is located on the bay in Key Allegro. The setting couldn’t be better for a nice seafood restaurant. However, I think we got our hopes up a bit before going to eat here. We were doomed the minute we walked it. We went at lunch and the patio area was bathed in searing […]

(Restaurant) Bellino’s Italian in Rockport, TX

On our recent vacation to Rockport, Texas my husband and I got to have a date night. One night all to ourselves. I had driven past this tiny little Italian restaurant a few times so we decided to try it out. We were not disappointed! Though small, the restaurant has a lot of atmosphere. It […]
