Culver’s

Location: Various Atlanta areas


Culver’s is a great little burger joint that’s popping up all over the Atlanta area. The burgers and chicken are good. The fries and tots are delicious, and the frozen custard desserts are a perfect ending to a good meal. The places I’ve visited so far are always clean, and the staff is always friendly. If you’re looking for a good, quick little burger stop that’s a little different, and a little better than your average fast food, check them out. Oh yeah, they do a little reward thing in their receipts where you can call a survey number, do a quick little survey, and get a free custard cone or cup! 😉 Here’s their website for locations and menu options.

Capital Grill

Location: Washington, D.C.


This place has a lot of class and prestige, even if it did seem a bit pretentious that day. The waiter we had was really nice, and the food was delicious. However, I do wish there was a bit more of it, especially for the prices paid.

We went here, because we follow TripAdvisor pretty close while in a new city, and this stays in the top 5 of 2,000+ restaurants. (Yes, that’s not a typo; it’s 2,000!😳😜) Because of such high ratings, maybe I was expecting a bit more than we received, but honestly, I enjoyed a few other restaurants in the area a little better than this one. However, we didn’t get a bad meal. It just seemed a bit more pretentious than it needed to be, and the total bill seemed a bit high for the amount of food on the plate.

The sea bass and kids’ steak were delicious, and the steak sandwich was tasty. The lobster roll was better than fair, but I have had better. The fries were absolutely amazing. We had dessert back at the room; so, I can’t speak to that.

If you’re in D.C., it’s worth a try, as so many love it. Here’s their website to check out the menu and location.

The Dawg House

Location: Buford, GA


The Dawg House is a great burger joint in the little town of Buford, Georgia. This place has the juiciest, tastiest burgers around. They have plenty from which to choose, too! There’s a great big board on the wall. Just pick one or two. All those varieties can be applied to their all need hotdogs as well, and if hotdogs weren’t fattening enough, they have one that tops them all. It’s a bacon wrapped, deep fried dawg! Oh. My. Word!

The fries, cokes and other items on the menu are just as good, and the service is always personal and friendly. My only piece of advice for them would be to get one more staff member during the lunch rush, because they run themselves in circles trying to serve that many people in such a short time with only two or three waitstaff and cashier.

I read an article not too long ago that they were supposed to be opening an additional creamery where they’re going to serve ice cream and a few desserts. Everything looked really good. I just can’t remember when that was projected to open. Maybe it’s time to stop back by and check it out.

Hope you stop by soon, and I hope you enjoy! Here’s their website for more information.

Friday’s Friends #30

Today is FRIDAY!! Whoo-hoo! 🎉 That means it’s time to share a new “friend” with you.

I just found this sweet blog yesterday, and I thought it was perfect timing for today’s weekly event. My apologies for not having it posted at 11:00 this morning. I got distracted by a few things that had to be done, and I’m just getting back on here. 😜

Hanna has a great outlook on faith and hope, and I especially liked one of her more recent posts of how God is helping her to grow and strengthen spiritually, emotionally and mentally. She has a lot of wisdom for a young lady, and she’s learning more day by day. I do hope you’ll visit her site today, and I hope you’ll find encouragement as I did.

Scoops

Location: Monroe, GA

Scoops is an amazing little ice cream and candy shop right in the downtown of a cute little town called Monroe. They’ve got great ice cream, assortments of vintage candy and new items, yummy coffee and even caramel apples that they they will slice right there for you! On a hot summer day, you can even sit in the rocking chairs out front and enjoy your nice cold ice cream, but you better eat it quick before it melts!

Hope you’ll stop by and enjoy! Check out their website for more information and locations.

Friday Friends #29

Today is Friday, and I love Fridays, because I get to share with you a new “friend” here in this blogging community.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to Bel. She travels all over and shares the beautiful scenery, hiking tips and traveling wisdoms with her readers. She will also give you her opinion on a few different hiking apparel and other items that might help you in your travels. She does get paid commission for these, and she tells you that up front, but she’s not pushy or trying to market something. It’s just a simply linked post within the blog.

I’ve really enjoyed reading her posts, and she makes me want drop everything, hop on a plane and go exploring! I hope you will stop by and do some exploring yourself! 😊< img src=”https://thegrizzlegrist.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/img_1609-2.gif”&gt;

Rib Country

Location: Cleveland, GA

Rib Country is a great place to stop by on your way to several great places in North Georgia. It’s right on Highway 129 as you head north toward Blairsville, Yonah Mountain or the Sautee Nacoochee Gap area (east or west, depending from which direction you’re coming).

The atmosphere is pure country with all the beautiful wood. Tables and booths, mason jars for drinking and round, silver trays for getting your platter of meat. The staff are friendly, and, typically, the customers are, too.

I suggest the brisket platter or the chicken, but if you prefer pork, lots of people do. The salads are always good, and the onion loaf can feed a small crowd. There are several BBQ sauces from which to choose, and homemade nana pudding and cobbler can be chosen for dessert.

Honestly, this isn’t my favorite BBQ, but it’s a solid B when you’re in that area. The last time we visited, it wasn’t as good as usual, but I’m hoping it was just a passing moment. We’ll be trying it again soon, and we’re hoping it will be better.

Check them out here.

The Hamilton

Location: Washington, D.C.



This place has a great atmosphere, great staff and incredible food. If you’re in the D.C. area, it’s definitely a go-to. There’s lots of seating options, as they have a bar area, restaurant and upstairs area with live music.

The grilled cheese is AMAZING. Don’t be fooled. This is not your normal kids grilled cheese. The burgers are good as the other dishes. My apologies for not having the actual names of the plates. I couldn’t pull up the complete menu on the website, but you’ll just have to trust me that hey have a lot of great choices!

I hope you will check them out here and enjoy your meal! 😊

Today, I'd like to introduce you to "Brook." She is absolutely new to this blogging community as a whole, and I hope you will welcome her by dropping by and following her blog. Just her "about" page is enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to reading more from here, as I hope you will, too.

Bullfrogs

Location: Flowery Branch, Ga

Bullfrogs has a great atmosphere, a good staff and delicious food. The menu is a bar and grill type, and there’s lots to choose. I personally love the nachos appetizer and the chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. The desserts are yummy, too. Check them out on the web, and if you’re coming from out of town, go ahead and book yourself a room at the lodge and enjoy the pool, amenities and even Lake Lanier Islands. It’s a fun place to explore. 😊
