I wasn’t lucid enough to remember. Ask Jessica Lin or Timmy Tsu. My brain quit after figuring 8 3/4 lbs was 140 oz. I think we ate 9 lbs of king crab and 0 lbs of garlic bread. It was a night of giggles and ants on sticks and goodbye Amandas.

Best Italian in town? And Ali Wes works there. I like their free bread and decor. Can get a little noisy. Reasonably priced; you’ll spend about $15 – 30. Yummy spinach ravioli and linguini frutti del mare.

It says Half Time, but they definitely mean George’s Place. The BEST wings in town, hands down. Beats BW3’s (or BWW’s, for those who can’t remember back when it was Buffalo West Wild Wings) in all categories except on witty quotes on napkins. Thursday’s half-priced wing deal is the best.

The air is crappy and smokey, and there’s usually drunk people playing duck hunt or buck shot or whatever that game is. You get 0 reception, not that it matters; it’s too loud in there to pay attention to the games that are on TV, let alone answer your cell phone. All this must be excused since it is a bar, and the prices are undeniably cheap (at least the price for wings on Thursdays) because the overpriced beer offsets the reasonably priced food.

So it is small and stuffy and noisy, but the wings here cover a multitude of sings. They’re are normal-chicken sized, unlike at BWW’s where the wings look like they were butchered off of emaciated and underaged chicks. The Wet-Pepper Marinated Wings are gloriously greasy and oh so delicious and they turn your fingers a beautiful orange color. A lot of people also like BBQ or Teriyaki, but they’re not for me. Mild and hot wings are both better than medium.

There’s an unenforced no-18-and-unders-sans-legal-guardian-after-8-pm policy that I break every Thursday. Friendly staff and really helpful waitresses, although the food sometimes takes a while.

I wanted to review the one on East ZhongXiao Rd. in Taipei, but of course Facebook only allows US and Canadian restaurants. Bogus. Go and see/taste for yourself the best and soupiest little steamed buns (I don’t thing Xiao Long Bao = Dumplings) you’ll ever have. Super prices for an American tourist to Taiwan. Decent dimsum and good old school Taiwanese-style noodles.

Not AS good as reviews say, food-wise, but still my favorite breakfast joint in Naperville! Actually maybe all around, because I generally don’t wake up early enough to go out for breakfast. Uber popular and crowded around 9 or 10AM. Cozy in a country sort of way: drinking out of jars, chicken decorations everywhere, wooden chairs, etc. Good potatoes, good prices, good crepes (especially the avocado one. I think it’s called Cassie’s Crepes?), good portions (unless you like huge breakfasts, you’ll probably take some home).

Small, simple, family-owned, family dining. Very reasonable prices (probably the best for the portions in the west suburbs? This is the only place to eat deep fried tofu.

I think this restaurant is for old steak-eating people. Highly recommended for Iris. The spinning salad is mind-blowing. Not the salad itself, just how it spins on the table. If you ever go, be sure to order the Chocolate Bag. It’s a secret or something, and one of the most expensive desserts you’ll ever order around here… But it’s tastebud-blowing. Yummy mashed potatoes. Rosemary or dill weed seasoned, I think. The servers are dressed in funny 50’s or Victorian costume suit things, but very professional. The food is good but not excellent especially for the price… BUT I can’t live without Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. For serious.

Orgasm in all-you-can-eat steak form. Totally worth the $25 for lunch or $50 for dinner if you do the anorexic thing for a day or two before venturing to the Fogo. Definitely the best of any of the Argentinian/Brazilian steak buffets around… Sal et Carvao and Texas & Brazil do not even compare. Excellent cheesy bread and fried bananas, and a buffet with maybe every kind of cheese and artichoke and antipasta ever invented. There are really friendly waiters dressed in goofy gaucho pants catering to your every beefy desire. And chicken and bacon and pork too. They carry open-pit roasted COWS on swords, it’s pretty much a merry-go-round of steak. Excellence.
