It's DiGiorno!

It certainly ISN'T take out!!! My husband doesn't eat frozen pizza but he decided he wanted to try a DiGiorno since the commercial says it's like take-out. Well, I don't know where they are getting their take-out because IT IS NOT!!! Actually it was really BAD...he only ate a couple of pieces and couldn't eat any more. The canadian bacon was like shoe leather and there was so much sauce it was oozing out all over. The crust had a weird flavor. I normally like frozen pizza, even though I don't eat it very often, especially since the kids are grown and out of the house. There was not anything we liked about it, including the $5.75 price so I am giving it a big fat zero gold stars. If you don't agree with me, please let me know why...I would love a second opinion.

I do love an occasional Burger King meal. From time to time it has been known to cause my stomach to hurt but the BK at the corner of Brookswood and Kiehl Ave. in Sherwood AR. has consistently produced GOOD food. Last week I ordered 2 small hamburgers (Not the Whopper) and large french fries. BK fries are some of the last good fast food fries around, in my opinion. The burgers were great...fresh and the fries HOT and crisp! Anyone on a budget would be happy, at only $4.16. I will give this meal 4 1/2 gold stars. Only because they didn't give me any ketchup after I had asked for some.

It had been a while since our last visit to Dixie Cafe. I am a bigger fan than my hubbie but we went last night because it was my turn to pick the restaurant. I ordered grilled pork chops, fried okra and a baked potato. He ordered the chopped steak, mashed potatoes and pinto beans. Everything was really good, especially the pork chops. We had only 2 complaints: The rolls and corn muffins were not very warm and my hubbie felt he didn't get quite enough food to eat. He said that is his main gripe with Dixie. The young waitress was very nice and kept checking on us. It's a good atmosphere, not too noisy and not too cold. I give them 3 1/2 gold stars.
