Had LaRosa's at King's Island and a Montgomery Inn BBQ pork sandwich at Great American Ball Park. Both pretty good.......
Had Abuelo's for lunch the other day. Its a mexican joint up in Traders Point. Pretty damn good. Can't beat the 5.95 lunch specials, pretty good portion sizes, and i enjoyed the guacamole.

Abuelo's is really hit or miss.
Well I had the Guillo Grande Burrito (or something of that nature) and it was a hit.

I might try that next time. I got the enchiladas last time I was there and they were pretty awful.
My girlfriend got the Chicken Chimichanga, said she enjoyed that as well

The time I went to Abuelo's, I was less than impressed. Maybe I was expecting too much - I mean it was good, but I expected it to be very good and it wasn't
Went to the Pita Pit in Downtown Charlotte Saturday night.
Awesome pitas. Would definitely go there again.
Went to Toast Cafe in Huntersville, which for a long time has been our favorite breakfast /Brunch resturant.
Had ****ty service, and the screwed up my wife's meal and son's pancake(burned). My food was unbelievably good. I'm sure we'll give them another try, but I'm very disappointed in a place that has been one of our favorite resturants for a few years now. Maybe they were just having a bad day.....They have been known for the excellent service and great food since they opened 3 years ago. I hope it was just a fluke.
There is a Pita Pit on West 86th street here in Indy

Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
And life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in black elms,
Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
I went to Stir Crazy for a second time today. I got the Pad Thai again and while I would now say it was a solid noodle dish, I don't really think of it as Pad Thai. It has no spice and it is more of a sweet sauce. Plus the tofu is cut too big IMO.
Our appetizer though was absolutely fantastic. We got the chicken imperial rolls. Now they only give you three so it might be wise to order two for future reference, but they are awesome. THink oversized Vietnamese spring rolls, but then you take a leaf of lettuce and roll it up in there. Kind of like lettuce wraps, but the fried roll creates a different taste/texture and it is really, really good. I would go back just for those
Side note on King's Island, post Paramount connection it's kinda lame. You wouldn't think a theme would help but stuff like Tomb Raider as "The Crypt" with a bunch of the ambiance items removed kinda ruined it a little.
Plus they have that whole area blocked off for construction of the new ride.
First time at Mellow Mushroom Pizza in Carmel - 116th and Keystone.
It was OK, better than Dominos, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns - but no where nearly as good as Bazbeaux, Some Guys or Puchini's.
Word of caution - the Pepperoni is extremely greasy - I would never get that again.
So overall it is OK - but nothing special - probably won't go back - unless I'm with someone who really wants to go. Rather expensive, although a little goes a long way.
I went to Taco Bell again.
They remembered the spork!!
Kims Kitchen Stanley, NC Again, great cooking.
My favorite Chinese place is Beijing Chinese Restaurant
- 79th and Fall Creek road. (I think I've been to every Chinese place on the north side of Indy, Carmel, Fishers.... and that is my favorite. Mainly just take out - there are a few tables inside.
The hot and spicy isn't very hot, so if you like it hot, you should ask for extra hot, but if you like things just a little hot then you'll be fine.

I've never had Beef Wellington. Anyone know of a good place in Indy to get one?
I went to Stir Crazy again on Saturday (after liking it so much the first time) wow what a difference a couple of weeks can make. The food almost tasted like it was from a different restaurant - everything was extremely salty and had a strange taste.
Not too sure what to make of it now
It's a hit or miss place for sure. I've been there three times, the only thing that has been good every time was the chicken imperial rolls. Otherwise, I'd say it is mostly miss.
Monical's Pizza. Just opened in Carmel, Traders Point, Fisher's and Avon.
Actually it is very good and I am rather picky when it comes to pizza. Be sure to get the thin though that is their specialty and it was excellent, their pan pizza I didn't like too well.
Showmar's, Huntersville, NC. Had thier Fish (Canadian Flounder) Pita and Onion Rings for the first time. Excellent.
Yoshi's Grill-Sushi and Habachi Steak. Excellent as always.
Papa John's Pizza-Meh.
I grew up with Monical's. It was kind of the central Illinois equivalent of Pizza King, just not nearly as widespread.
I remember going up to Tuscola with the family, having the thin crust pizza, pitchers! of pop, and scrounging up some money for the jukebox (Fly Like an Eagle sticks in my mind as one of the frequent choices).
I think I've only had their pan pizza once - the thin is much, much better as you said.
