The All You Can Eat Buffet: A double edged sword…..and where to find them.

By at May 14, 2017 | 6:12 am | 0 Comment

Rodizio on the buffet at Cygnus 27 I got to thinking about this today because it is Mother's Day and restaurants often offer special Mother's Day food buffets.I hear people constantly complain about the lack of quality AYCE buffets in the area, but this is a tricky thing. People want to have an awesome selection of food that is cooked to the correct temperature, is

So, you have been to Vander Mill Cider in Spring Lake, you've had their cider, you've eaten their food....or maybe you haven't.  Spring Lake was too far for some of you to drive, so the owner of Vander Mill Cider built a second location in Grand Rapids just to save you a little wear and tear on your car. OK, that is probably not the whole reason for the new Vander

Have You Been….. (The Old Goat Edition)

By at March 13, 2016 | 5:40 am | 0 Comment

Alger Heights has always been a tough neighborhood for restaurants, and I have watched many of them come and go over the years.  When I heard that the Old Goat was going to give it a go I did have concerns about their success because nobody had ever tried a restaurant this large in Alger.  This did not deter owner Cory DeMint.  DeMint had already successes with The

The Pizza Chronicles “Greater Grand Rapids Style”

By at February 14, 2016 | 8:27 am | 1 Comments

DELUXE PIZZA at VITALE'S OF ADA I get accused of going to the same pizza place all the time. "All you ever do is go to Daniele's pizza, why don't you go other places?" I always think that question is a little strange. First of all, I do go other places, but that isn't why the question is strange. It is entirely predictable that people eat at the same pizza place

Pozole (This weeks featured dish) I see the majority of restaurants spend their entire existence in one building, but Lindo Mexico  is the exception to this rule. Last month, Lindo moved into its 3rd location (1742 28th St. SW, Wyoming, MI 49519) in just 6 short years with each successive location being nearly twice the size of the previous. It is crazy to see the

Have You Been…..(New York Fried Chicken edition)

By at December 6, 2015 | 7:05 am | 0 Comment

There was a quiet but persistent group of people on EatGR saying "New York Friend Chicken had the best chicken in Grand Rapids" (743 Division Ave S, Grand Rapids, MI 49503).  I ignored that drumbeat for months.  Let's face it, there can only be one "best", and I was hearing this from such a small group of people, that I knew they could not be right.  If they were,
