Pete & Marias Serving the Ranchos a Great Pizza

BVN RESTAURANT REVIEW - Have been wanting to try this place out for a while. Their menu items were a little pricey,  $12 for pasta dinner. So we opted for a pizza.

We ordered the GIANT combo pizza with anchovies.  The toppings were plenty and very fresh. What I like the most about the pie was the butt load of cheese. You couldn't see the toppings because there was so much cheese.

Squeeze Inn Second Review: Second Time's a Charm

BVN RESTAURANT REVIEW - This is my second review of this restaurant. My first focused on the price and an unfortunate use of what appeared to be a dirty ice bucket. On my second visit,  it was clear those two issues were addresses.

In my first review I said the burger was tasty and the unique cheese skirt was different and provided a nice cheese appetizer. Like the first time the burger on the second time was very good.

Taco Express Mexican Food - High School Close

RESTAURANT REVIEW - My wife and I have been wanting to try this new Mexican restaurant in Madera near the high school. So today for lunch we stopped for a quick bite to eat. This is a small,  eight table place without much in the way of decor. I'm sure in time decorations will go up and the place will develop some character.
 
 The music from the stereo was a little loud which made hear the gentleman taking our orders a little difficult but we got through it. I ordered the burrito supreme and my wife ordered the quesadillas. Both chicken and both were about $5.50 each. We also ordered drinks and out total was around $15. Not bad for the food we got.
 

Frosty Queen - Best Location Great Burger

RESTAURANT REVIEW - Ok, this is getting a little ridicules now. First there was Super King Burger, then the Red Onion opened. Now Frosty Queen has jumped onto the bandwagon. All three of these restaurants basically offer the same menu and same quality of food. I challenge anyone to tell the difference in the food at any of these three places. This isn't a bad thing. The quality is exceptional at each place. The bread is fresh as are the ingredients are, but the taste is the same.

Like the Red Onion, there are inconsistencies in the combo prices. There are several burgers priced at $3.49 that when you order them in a combo, the prices are different. Yet the combo is the same medium Pepsi and large fries. The same goes for the numerous $3.99 burgers. Even with all that, the prices at each of these places is much better than McDonald's, Burger King or Carl's Jr.
