Kent Bernhardt, a popular local radio personality, gave out his "Foodie" Awards recently. Since I didn't agree with any of them, I thought I'd do My Own.
Cheryl's "Foodies" go to:
Darrell's in Rockwell: The Small Hotdog, All The Way (Slaw, mustard, chili, onions)
Darrell's in Rockwell Again: The Hamburger Club Sandwich
Darrell's in Rockwell Again: The Hershey Cake (Yum!)
Darrell's in Rockwell Again: The Banana Pudding (Likewise)
Captain D's: Hushpuppies (They taste like real, oniony hushpuppies and not cake.)
Richard's in Salisbury: The fries
Richard's in Salisbury Again: The Small Hotdog, All The Way (Slaw, mustard, chili, onions)
The Farmhouse in Salisbury: The Farmhouse Burger, No Cheese
The Farmhouse in Salisbury Again: The fries
The Cookout in Salisbury: The BLT
The Cookout in Salisbury Again: The Hotdog All The Way (Slaw, mustard, chili, onions)
McDonald's: The Southwest Salad
Zaxby's: The Roadhouse Salad
(I used to like their chicken salad, but apparently they decided it would be better without garlic.) (No)
Johnny's in Rockwell: The iced tea. (Fish and crustacean-eating people tell me the seafood there is excellent. I wouldn't know.)
Taco Bell: Their original taco (Please. Don't try to "improve" it.)
I'm am a big barbecue fan and a number of these restaurants have barbecue. Unfortunately, the barbecue isn't consistent. Sometimes it's great, many times, not so much. Ergo, nobody get's Cheryl's "Foodie" Award for barbecue. Maybe later.
Cheryl's "Eeek, No" Award goes to Wendy's New Apple Chicken salad (It's the cheese. Strong blue cheese does NOT belong on that salad), Subway's Orchard Chicken Salad Sub (I won't go into detail), and Taco Bell's New Cantina Taco. (It's the wrap. And the filling.)
That's it for this time. Happy eating...
