Wedl's Hamburger Stand - Jefferson, WI

Featured on Burgerland.

I had a reader ask if I knew about a joint near Madison that cooked their burgers in lard.  I didn't until I by chance ran into Wedl's reading something on the web.  As I dug further, I'm sure Wedl's is what the reader had in mind.

Phonomenon - Temecula, CA

I found Phonomenon looking for another restaurant which I never did find.  It was getting late for lunch and I saw the sign for Panera's and drove into the parking lot but Phonomenon 80 yards away easily won me over.

Randy's Donuts - Inglewood, CA

Which is more famous? Voodoo Donuts or Randy's Donuts?  Both have had national media exposure but arguably, Voodoo donuts is more famous with an almost constant long line.  That's not to say Voodoo offers better donuts though.

John Hardy's Bar-B-Q - Rochester, MN



I'm a sucker for barbecue believing that somewhere up North, I'll find something as good as Southern barbecue.  That's why I stopped into John Hardy's.

The Blue Door Pub - St Paul, MN



Featured on Bizarre Foods America and Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Blue Door Pub is a neighborhood bar located in a comparatively quiet neighborhood with limited commercial business. Driving by it was easy to miss as sign isn't the most prominent from the driver's angle.

Best Chocolate - Lindt 70% Cocoa Smooth Dark


It takes some getting use to especially if you're use to Hershey's.  Sweet it isn't.  Creamy it isn't. But the more you have, the more it grows on you.

The Great Dane Pub - Dane County Regional Airport MSN



The Great Dane is one of the limited number of eateries at the airport and the only one offering sit down service.  It certainly was packed at lunch time but customers also cleared out quick as cockroaches with flights scheduled to depart.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries - Newport, KY



Five Guys is another burger chain in the competition heavy burger chain business.  I've had their burgers before but it was so long that I didn't recall to what extent I liked their burgers.

Hyundai Accent



Surprisingly responsive and better acceleration than anticipated. Relatively good unblocked views out the back and side windows. Capable. Basic not too much for high tech.
