“Beef. It’s what’s for dinner.”
“Where’s the Beef?!”
“Get more from Beef”
I do believe we’ve all seen or heard all of these slogans at one time or another.
But, what if you’re like me and cutting back on red meat? What can you do to satisfy that craving without breaking the nutritional bank and still walk away feeling good after dinner?!
The answer is Ted’s Montana Grill right here in Naperville. [Read more…]
When you hear fun in New Orleans…what do you envision?
Is it the wild and crazy times spent on Bourbon Street? Mardis Gras? The colorful and bright personalities you encounter when meeting and talking with locals? Their fascinating history? Fabulous architecture?
For me, it’s all of these things…but, the one thing that always comes to mind is the food. [Read more…]

Mongolian BBQ (otherwise known as bd’s Mongolian Grill) is a great place to go in Naperville if you’re looking for stir-fry fun.
I know this probably doesn’t make any sense, but the first time I had heard the name of this restaurant, all I could think of was Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. You know, ’cause Genghis Khan, ruler of Mongolia, is one of their excellent friends (Bill: “It is indeed a pleasure to introduce to you a gentleman we picked up in medieval Mongolia in the year 1269.” Ted: “Please welcome the very excellent barbarian, Genghis Khan! This is a dude who, 700 years ago, totally ravaged China, and who, we were told, two hours ago totally ravaged Oshman’s Sporting Goods.”) I also love the scene when they lure him with a Twinkie.
