Fogo de Chao- all the meat you could possibly eat!

Fogo de Chao is an authentic Brazilian steakhouse, located at 1337 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. It also has other locations around the United States. It is certainly a 5 star restaurant. It is a bit pricy though- at $50 a person for dinner, but it does go a long way. This restaurant is like a fancy buffet. The salad bar is exquisite, having only the finest cuts of meats and cheeses along with a variety of salads. My favorite item at the salad bar is the apple raison salad. Then after the salad bar you return to your seat (a waiter is always there to pull your chair out for you when your about to sit down) and there is a red and green sided coaster. Once you flip it to green the meat starts coming! "Gauchos" start bringing you the individual, excellently seasoned, meats on the menu which are, Top Sirloin, Filet Mignon, Rib Eye, Bottom Sirloin, Beef Ribs, Pork Ribs, Lamb Chops, bacon wrapped Chicken Breasts, Pork Loin encrusted with parmesan cheese and Sausage. All the meats are so juicy and tender. Your meal also includes an endless amount of side dishes including warm cheese bread, crispy polenta, mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas. There is nothing bad to say about this place, the atmosphere is great, the food is superb & never ending!

Venuto's- Build your own sandwiches and wraps!

You might have heard of this place before- or probably have eaten here already because "Venuto's Old World Pizza" is one of the more popular chain restaurants around Philadelphia. When I went there today I ordered my "special" wrap that I made up myself while on a vacation in Ocean City, NJ last summer. It's a chicken tender wrap with lettuce, ranch, and cheddar cheese. Not only was it made... PERFECTLY, it was also ready so fast. I barely waited. All their wraps are made to order, so you can put together any combination you want! Their pizza (which is what their known for) is actually pretty good too. I'm originally from New York so nothing compares to a good slice of Brooklyn pizza, but this certainly comes close. "Venuto's Old World Pizza" is affordable, tasty and has an extensive menu. So if your in the area and want a quick, affordable and delectable meal give it a try- or another!

So today I went to Tomo Sushi. Its located at 806 Delsea Drive N in Glassboro, NJ. This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever eaten at. Everything was great and I absolutely love the atmosphere here! The staff is so cheerful and pleasant. The food is fresh, well presented and delicious! And is also very affordable. I ordered off of the "all you can eat" menu, which has an extensive list of appetizers, salads, sashimi and sushi. If your in the area I absolutely suggest that you give this place a try!

-boston roll

To new beginnings...

Hey all, I'm Brittani [Adams] and I am a sophomore at Rowan University. If you've never heard of this school, it's probably because it is in the middle of nowhere in a small town in southern New Jersey, known as Glassboro. Anyway, surprisingly there [are] a ton of restaurants around this area and I'm on a hunt to find the best ones. I'm obsessed with food[,] but act like a baby when it comes to trying new things- that's something that is definitely going to have to change! I'm going to review all different types of restaurants and tell you what I think, this should be interesting. I'm hoping not to try anything too crazy, but I guess well see. [I am] looking forward to this.
