Oh, The Things They Eat

One of the things Mom likes best about our lifestyle is eating out on weekends.  They normally eat out twice on Saturdays and once on Sundays.  Sometimes, they eat out twice on Sundays.  Mom usually reads reviews on restaurants before they go.  She is a regular contributor to TripAdvisor.

This past Saturday, they ate a restaurant they saw on Food Network.  I think it was one of those shows that have the top 100 restaurants, but I don't remember the name of the show.  The place that was number three has a location in this area. It was not the location that was on the TV show.  It is called Primanti Brothers.  The restaurant was different than Mom expected.  This location has waitresses. The one on TV was where you ordered at the counter. 

The sandwiches are served with coleslaw and fries on the sandwich. Dad ordered a hot sausage & cheese sandwich with double meat and egg.  He said it was good.

Hot Sausage & Cheese Sandwich
Mom ordered the crispy chicken sandwich.  It comes with a fried chicken breast and a chicken thigh.  It has a Cajun sauce on it. Mom said it was good.  She really liked the thigh because that is what she prefers on a chicken.  She didn't care for the fries.

They also ordered fried pickles.  Dad thought they were good.  Mom was not impressed.

Fried Pickles
The music was extremely loud in this place. The prices were reasonable.

Mom chose a BBQ place for dinner.  It is called Corner Stable.  They are known for their ribs and and crab cakes.  The place was packed when they arrived at 5 p.m., but they were seated immediately.

Mom ordered a slab of ribs with sides of mac & cheese and hot apples.

Dad ordered the crab cake rib dinner. He had green beans and hot apples for his sides.  His ribs are not shown.

Mom thought the ribs were good. They were very tender.  Dad said they were overdone.  Dad did like the crab cakes.  He said it had big flakes of crab meat.

They were in and out of the restaurant in 30 minutes.  Mom said the food appeared about five minutes after they ordered.  She wasn't impressed by that.

Inside the restaurant.  It is pretty small.
 Sunday, they went to Quaker Steak and Lube.  Mom has seen these around and always wanted to try one.  It looks like you are going into an oil change place.

They are known for their wings.  The folks decided to order wings as an appetizer.  Guests choose from a long list of sauces for their wings.

$6.95 for 5 wings. Yikes!
Mom said the wings were good, but the sauce they chose was bland.  She can't remember what they chose.  On Tuesday nights, they have an all you can eat wing buffet for $12.95.  Mom would love to try it.  Dad doesn't get home from work until late, so that is probably not going to happen.

The folks both ordered the Lube Burger.  It has a wing sauce on it.  Mom said it was good, but it could have used a little more wing sauce.  She liked that sauce.  It also came with fries and the fries were excellent.

When the waitress brings the bill to the table, she brings our Twizzlers (licorice) too. We are not sure why, but Mom liked it.

 Would you believe that I did not get a single bite of any of this food?  I need to check my adoption contract. It may have been violated.  BOL!

I did this while they were gone.
