Best Cal Mex BBQ right off Highway 101 near Santa Maria, California

Traveling home from Malibu, we needed to stop for a late lunch so we turned to our good friend Yelp. My goal was to find the best Santa Maria Tri Tip since my husband had never tried it. We definitely found a great restaurant in our quest. ...

My new must-stop BBQ joint on the way to South Lake Tahoe off 50 in Placerville

Hog Wild BBQ Restaurant in Placerville, CA Who would have thought that a BBQ joint off of 50 heading to South Lake Tahoe California in Placerville would be so amazingly good that I now will make sure I stop at Hog Wild BBQ whenever we are going to/from Tahoe. To start, my husband likes to find 'local flavor' when we go on trips. Usually this means a quaint diner that the locals like to frequent. So this last Saturday when we were on our way home from South Lake Tahoe, we had planned on ...

It’s Time to Experience Brazilian BBQ

Brazilian BBQ is an experience, one that cannot compare to other restaurants. When I think of All You Can Eat (AYCE), I think of buffet style places like Fresh Choice or Asian Buffets. Those are nice on occasion, but they aren't special. Brazilian BBQ is truly an elegant experience. We recently visited Pampas in Palo Alto, California. Pampas is an elegant restaurant that takes AYCE to a new level. This is a family friendly restaurant where the kids are never treated less than the adults. And the restaurant isn't stuffy quiet, so you don't have to worry about a little kid noise. However, if you do decided to bring your kids, plan on bringing a tablet or other electronic devices to help entertain the young ones for this will be a long dinner.

Do you have a favorite AYCE (All you can eat) sushi restaurant?

I love sushi.  Yes, I really do love sushi.  Any time, any place.  I love great sushi and I have a confession: I'll eat almost any sushi that doesn't smell or look old. In general, I do not enjoy AYCE sushi restaurants.  I've found that most have one of five problems: too expensive, poor service (can't get the food to make it worthwhile), limited selection (only rolls), they don't have food for non-sushi eaters, or they are really poor quality (like at most buffets).

I finally found a GREAT AYCE sushi restaurant!
