This place continues to impress me with their original offerings of tasty pizzas.  They’re all cooked so well and use fresh, high quality ingredients.  Here I tried the Margherita.  $8.50 for a small, it’s a thin crust pie with olive oil, garlic, oregano, tomato, Parmesan, mozzarella, etc.  the whole thing is then drizzled with a…

I finally made it to Amerient this evening. I haven’t been there since it was the Old TelCo, back in the day… I ordered my favorite Chinese go-to, Kung Pao Chicken. Since I was there between 3-5pm I was able to take advantage of early bird pricing. It was only $8.50 and included soup and…

Our second burger for the new series was eaten at Up the Hill Grill recently. They have an extensive and original selection of about 10 burger creations, served with their famous beer battered fries. I ordered the Black Canyon Mac N Cheese for $13.75. Made with grilled mac & cheese and bacon on the house…

Recently my wife and I embarked on a local hometown challenge to compare all the taco shop carne asada burritos here in Ramona. There are 8 taco shops in town and we’re putting them all to the test in an apples to apples comparison. To avoid confusion, I define a taco shop as ordering at…

We had an outstanding dinner recently at Ramona Valley Grill. It seems like there’s been some confusion, or conflicting reports on RVG’s operating status. I’m pleased to report that everything is business as usual. I’m not into all the minutiae of the ownership/management scenario, I just know it’s a unique Ramona business that we love…

Huevos con jamon at Mariscos this morning for breakfast. $7.99 gets you a huge plate of eggs & ham served with rice, beans and tortillas. It’s a great breakfast at a good value. Chips & salsa are good too. They have a selection of both Mexican and American breakfast offerings. Review by Dan Edwards Published…

Got these two bad boys for breakfast.  One crunchy hardshell chicken taco and a shrimp taco. 😁 Review by Dan Edwards Published April 2015 at Food Observations Republished here with permission.

Had an outstanding pizza recently at Mamma Rosa! My boy and I shared a medium sausage & pepperoni. Perfect crust with just the right amount of cheese (generous). Here they put the pepperoni under the cheese. I actually prefer on top so it gets the crispy edges while baking. I’m sure they would make it…

The next Ramona taco shop we tried on our carne asada burrito challenge was Los Rancheros. Back in the day this was actually a Rally’s. You might be able to tell from the architecture. This turned out to be our favorite carne asada burrito in town for a variety of reasons. We also had the…

Last Sunday I “parked in rear” and had an outstanding breakfast at Kountry Kitchen. Being a Sunday it was slammed, but service was still good and quick. I ordered a basic two egg & meat w/ potato choice and toast or biscuit. This was a substantial meal! I chose hash browns, which could have been…
