Chipotle Burrito

Chipotle Burrito

We finally got to try Chipotle Burrito over the weekend and got some mixed reviews. Overall, everyone (me, the husband and 3 kids) thought the burrito was good, BUT… There was not enough meat (husband) Not enough selection (daughter #2) You have to pay for chips and salsa which offsets the lower cost of the burrito (daughter #1) Too spicy (daughter #3) Not spicy enough (mom) We all agreed Chipotle Burrito is better than Taco Bell. Their ingredients were fresh…

Taqueria Lopez

Taqueria Lopez

When we have a hankering for some quick tacos, we sometimes go to Taqueria Lopez. Oddly enough, we’ve never eaten there, we always take the food home. It’s almost become our Mexican fast food place. Good bye, Taco Bell! I was craving some menudo one night and didn’t really know any place in Durham that makes a good one, so I decided I’d give Lopez’ a try. I went home with this steaming bowl… Their menudo was ok (I still…

Toreros Mexican Restaurant in Durham

Toreros Mexican Restaurant in Durham

After attending my daughter’s class play, my husband and I went to our favorite, Torero’s Mexican, restaurant for lunch. Of course, I forgot to take photos of the food again. Sorry. I don’t think it would do their food justice if I take a photo of the left over I brought home now. So just take my word for it. Toreros is a family owned chain of restaurants. They have three branches right here in Durham. They are that good….

Firebirds Restaurant, Southpoint Mall, Durham

Photo borrowed from the Firebirds website. I love eating out. We all do, the whole family. We also love to discuss the things we like or dislike about the restaurants.

Because I am usually so excited to eat that I forgot to take photos of the food!We’ve eaten at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill a number of times, but not one food photo. And I even had my camera in my purse most…

Dim Sum in Durham

Dim Sum in Durham

There is only one place that we’ve found so far that serves pretty good dim sum in Durham. We’re pretty lucky it is just down the street from us. From what I’ve heard, there aren’t very many other dim sum restaurants in the area. There is another one we’ve heard of but it hadn’t had good reviews. What self respecting dim sum joint not serve chicken feet? We heard this other place doesn’t serve anything but the generic dumplings. I…

Midnight Special

Midnight Special

At the California Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, there is a small restaurant at the casino level that hits its peak around midnight. In one corner of the casino floor is the Market Street Cafe. It is a 24-hour restaurant which usually serves pretty decent American and Hawaiian fare. However, around eleven o’clock p.m. a line starts to form and, especially on weekends, starts to extend out and wind onto the casino floor. What’s the buzz? Oxtail soup!…
