Subway Cold Cut Combo

Subway's Cold Cut Combo has always been my sandwich of choice ever since I first walked into a subway which I think was back in the late 90's. It looks nothing like the picture they show and I have to admit it probably isn't good for me.

Still, I love them.

The Old Ship Chocolate Cake

The Old Ship Chocolate Cake is just that with rich frosting and a few walnuts. Not much past that but they do a job dressing it up for you. I would stick to the more English things because this is just cake and not cake you would find in England rather than America. I mean, you go to an English Pub you go for English food right?

Original Tommy's Breakfast Burrito

Another of the slightly under cooked concoctions of the Original Tommy's franchise the Tommy's Breakfast Burrito is almost like having something worth eating but is more like the ghost of food rather than real food. 

You can tell what they are going for but this has almost no flavor what so ever.

Original Tommy's Hash Brown

I can say with certainty that this is the most basic hash brown I have ever eaten. Tommy's Hash Browns have the property of existing but not of being worth eating. Tommy's, in general, is the most american food you can get short of Taco Bell and this is a great example. 

I would say these would be better if they were cooked at a higher temperature and so were crispy. Past that, if you must eat one of these add something to it to that it tastes and becomes palatable.

California Grill Stuffed Chicken

California Grill's 'Stuffed Chicken' is an elegant meal that has spinach so it's better for you than most of what you'll get at the grill.  I figure that you're getting something that isn't fried so that's good as well. Order this with vegetables on the side rather than the crud that I ordered and you're getting an okay cheat meal to your diet.

California Grill Twice Backed Potato

California Grill's Twice Baked Potato is like a potato skin filled with mashed potatoes and then baked with an egg wiped top. I did enjoy this but found it unremarkable.

California Grill French Fries

I found California Grill's French Fries to be very much like BJ's in most respects. I will say that they are a step above most fast food fries but, as they are bad for you, to be avoided.

California Grill CG Loaded Fries

California Grill CG Loaded Fries are one of the cheapest 'Appeteasers' on the menu. They were so filling that I had to take most of the rest of my meal home, and I'm a big fat guy so that is no small point. I give them the thumbs up.

Sour Punch Apple

Sour Punch Apple had the most punch out of all the Sour Punch I tried. In that it lived up to it's name and was the best Sour Punch I've had.

Wonka Laffy Taffy Banana

'Wonka Laffy Taffy Banana' tastes nothing like banana but, other than bananas, what does? Why anyone would poison them self with this I can't say as it is an unremarkable candy with almost nothing to it other than a few chews. 
Now I know I'm down on candy in general because it's bad for me and such, but I got this in a load of Halloween candy I was giving out, and how long is it going to keep the kids quiet so you can watch the next episode of the walking dead before they start crying for you to put in another Sponge Bob DVD? Don't tell me you got that crap on Blue Ray!

Anyway, this is just a second rate candy that shouldn't really get passed out unless you really need a sugar fix.

Farmer Boy's Hearty Pastrami Sandwich

There is a lot of Pastrami on this 'Farmer Boy's Hearty Pastrami Sandwich' and it misses the point of making that Pastrami hot by putting it on the grill. 

I'd say the Ciabatta roll was a nice touch but over all this sandwich left me flat. I mean, the pastrami really needs to be accented with some hard grilling and a little charring to make one of these good.

Farmer Boys Crispy Zucchini

Farmer Boys delivers large size bland food and these are no exception. My order of Crispy Zucchini was right out of the oil and dripped just a bit to tell me it was still wet.  

I can't say I liked it all that much but they were passable, better than the onion rings, and filling.

Burger King French Fries

Burger King is not the king of fast food burgers. That would be In N' Out in my opinion but that's not the point of this review. Burger king french fries are larger than the french fries of Burger King's leading competitor and I have always liked them.  They tend to be crisp and with the right amount of salt.

Panera Bread Chicken, Ham & Swiss Flatbread

I'm a fan of Panera flat breads in general but the 'Chicken, Ham & Swiss' flat bread has got to be my second favorite flat bread that they sell. It's a good little sandwich at 350 Calories. 

I think I've gotten this twice now and I liked it both times. It's still not my discontinued BBQ chicken but it is a great buy.

Panera Bread Macaroni and Cheese

Panera Bread Macaroni and Cheese is nice and creamy. Past that it just tastes like mac and cheese.

Original Tommy's Hamburgers French Fries

Original Tommy's Hamburgers French Fries are well french fries. I found nothing good nor bad about them I mean if you're at Tommy's you get them if you like french fries.

Original Tommy's Hamburgers Double Chili Cheeseburger

Original Tommy's Hamburgers Double Chili Cheeseburger is a sloppy mess of mud that I wouldn't pay for but someone got one for me. I mean, it was food but calling that glop chili should be a crime.

The Old Ship Fish and Chips

Flaky and well made, these are some good fish and chips. If you're going to an English Pub you got to get the fish and chips. So I have to give these a thumbs up but then I love fish and chips.

The Old Ship Onion Rings

'The Old Ship' in Fullerton has some great onion rings. I still think that Maggies Pub has better rings but these were some solid rings that got the job done.

Wonka Laffy TaffySour Apple

Harder and more taffy like than other Wanka Laffy Taffy Sour Apple doesn't make me miss good salt water taffy as much as I do with their cherry flavor. It's still a disappointment.

Sour Punch Blue Raspberry

I don't taste any blue raspberry, maybe as an after taste, but then are there blue raspberries?  Well, it just tastes like sour to me and where is the punch?

Maggie's Pub Buffalo Wings

Maggie's Pub has a different take on buffalo wings. These were crisp and crunchy going well with the sauce. I give um all five stars, very good.

Maggie's Pub Artful Dodger

The Artful Dodger at Maggie's Pub is fish, shrimp, and chips. I have to say I could have used more shrimp but other than that very good.

Black Pumpkin Oatmeal Stout

Buffalo Bill's Brewery Black Pumpkin Oatmeal Stout got me excited. One of my all time top beers is an oatmeal stout and this is only the second of this form of rare brew I have sampled.

It was not as good as Stockyard. It was still a strong rich beer with a thick head and smooth flavor. If you can't get Stockyard get this.

Dr. Shasta

I was surprised by just how much this tasted like Dr. Pepper. I was figuring it would be flat out bad like other off brand sodas but this was a really good buy. It will never replace Mexican Coca Cola, but it did the trick.

Wonka Laffy Taffy Cherry

Wonka Laffy Taffy Cherry has a flavor that reminds me of cherry cough drops and I remember liking those cough drops as a kid. 

When I was a kid I recall going to Atlantic City and getting honest real salt water taffy. That stuff you could chew a bit but this just goes down that hatch before you know it so I would rather have chewy taffy.

Costco Food Court Chicken Bake

I had my eye on one of these for some time but with that slice of pizza waiting for me I never really wanted to take the plunge. Well, I regret doing so. The chicken was cheap and stringy and that dressing didn't help things. Still it was okay for a big baked dong.

BJ's Hand Crafted Root Beer

This was really good root beer. Not totally killer but really good.

BJ's Beef Fries things

I couldn't find these on the online menu when it came to reviewing it but it wasn't all that great. The cheese wasn't melted. Then again no one should be eating this nightmare on a plate.

BJ's Hickory Brisket and Bacon Burger

Now, BJ's Hickory Brisket and Bacon Burger is oily. I had to let it drip on the pan for a wile before I ate it and even then had to take half of it home.

This burger is a big mess of meat that will make you feel like you had the whole hog. Eat accordingly.

BJ's Wedge Cut Seasoned Fries

If you really want to fill your gut BJ's Wedge Cut Seasoned Fires will fill it for you. I found these to be way too heavy for me and I would not get them again but then I think they should just be thought of as potato wedges and not fries.
