Been There, Eaten There,
I’ll Be Back

Have you ever eaten at a restaurant or eatery of any type and said to yourself and/or friends, “that was good, I’d eat there again.”? One of the pleasures that we have in America is the joy of eating a variety of foods. We have the choice of thousands of restaurants, with an endless array of choices. Many of these restaurants are run by independent owners (Mom & Pop’s) making their living trying to please you and me. When my wife and I travel, we look for the Mom & Pop restaurants. We enjoy giving them our business and seeing new dishes or even some old familiar dishes done well.

I have written this page to share some of my good experiences: places I’ve been at, eaten at, and will be back! As a former restaurant owner, I know

what it’s like to work long hours, creating menus to please my customers and enjoying the satisfaction of a job well done. You will find their addresses listed by states, meal time I have eaten, and a note or two. Next time you travel, take the time to look them up, enjoy something different. Good people doing a great job!!

One last quick note: Remember, everyone has a bad day every once and a while, and so do restaurants. That said, I will not make any negative comments about any restaurant, deserved or not. If I visit a restaurant and have a bad experience or poor service, I’ll give them a second chance if it’s possible to return. My dissatisfaction will be to not list them. Hope to see you at a local Mom & Pops!
