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.

Fatte Albert's Pizza - A Hanford Must

RESTAURANT REVIEW - I took my family in here last Thursday while we were downtown for the "Paint It Pink" for breast cancer awareness. I did some research before going to Hanford and found this place on the Internet. It looked cool, so we decided to take a chance.

The place was busy. I stood at the counter and two people told me that they would be right with me, then a third said it so I said, "I heard that twice before". The only thing that kept this place from getting that fifth star was this lady's bitchy attitude.

Premier Brick Oven Pizza - Best Pizza in Town

RESTAURANT REVIEW - A few years ago a friend of mine opened a pizza place in the old Straw Hat location in Madera. Just a few months later he suffered a massive stroke and died. His restaurant closed and I was worried his dream also died. Fast forward over two years later and a new family is in the same location chasing their dream of running a successful pizza business in Madera.

Premiere Oven Baked Pizza is the continuation of the dream that started with Gambini's Pizza. It's a family run operation with a quality product and a professional, service oriented staff. It's not the bland, greasy corporate belt-oven pizza from the chain franchises. It is the first pizza in Madera to bring back the California tastes of the old Straw Hat Pizza.

Where Not to Find a Hot Dog in Madera

RESTAURANT REVIEW - When they closed the AMPM on Hwy99 at Avenue 12 many of us lost one of the cheapest places in Madera County to buy gas. I was real happy when AMPM opened on Avenue 17 at Hwy99 last year. When I found out they had fresh hot dogs with an ample selection of toppings and condiments I was over the moon.

I no longer minded paying the .35 cent fee for using my ATM to get gas because there was finally a place near Madera for a good hot dog. In Madera I can buy eighteen different types of tacos, fourteen different versions of a hamburger but there is no place that sells a decent hot dog. Why is it that in Madera a good hot dog is impossible to find?

Di Cicco's Italian Restaurant

RESTAURANT REVIEW - Took my family into Dicicco's for my step-son's birthday Sunday night. Tammy was our waitress and she did a great job of making us feel at home. The food and service was great as it always has been for us when ever we come in. All three of my kids had shrimp salads and shared a pizza. I got some of that pizza when we got home and it was good.

I had a rib-eye steak and a plate of pasta. Tammy had the steak sauce in her apron when she delivered my steak so I didn't have to wait to jump into my food. My fiancé ordered the Scarface which has mushrooms. Yuck for me but I hate mushrooms. She said it was great and took her leftovers to work with her today.
