Funny enough to say I have never stepped foot into a Moe’s Southwest Grill restaurant, however I have eaten Moe’s food. Hubby and I often find ourselves eating late at night after the girls go to bed because our night schedule gets pretty hectic between dinner, bath, and bed, it is what it is.
Hubby is a HUGE fan of the, “Joey Bag of Donuts” and recently started liking their quesadillas too, while I’m more of a rice bowl gal myself, but their menu lends to several different dishes because you can customize with several fresh, free ingredients. Some of my favorites are of course sour cream, pico de gallo, and I am a hardcore cilantro fan!!
One of the great things I recently learned about Moe’s is that they serve some pretty healthy, wholesome foods too. They have a gluten-free section in their menu, low-cal options, and have a vegetarian menu as well! They even take the care to be sure not to prepare the veggies in the same area as the meat, which I’m sure every vegetarian appreciates, especially on Meatless Mondays. Read More
After an amazing time at the Type-A Mom Conference, I was hoping to spend a little more time in the beautiful city of Asheville, North Carolina and Daddy B went along for the ride. What a great sport he was!! Although Cracker Barrel is not specific to Asheville or even North Carolina we enjoyed a most delicious breakfast and each of us (solids eaters) had scrumptious buttermilk pancakes with butter and warm syrup. Can’t you just taste them?? I guess I’m not a foodie since I don’t really take too many food pictures, maybe I’m a personie since I love to take pictures of people or rather a familie because I love taking pictures of my family, either way here is a picture of Miss A being silly after our breakfast in Asheville.
For those of you who regularly frequent Chick-fil-A with or without your families I don’t have to tell you how amazing this fast food restaurant is. In my opinion, and until I am corrected, this is the top family fast food joint offering customer service, kid friendliness, and tasty food high above other fast food standards.
Chick-fil-A is the only fast food restaurant where I’m greeted and my order is taken in a very polite manner. Occasionally I’ll get a, “How are you,” or a “Please pull up” at other ff restaurants but typically I’m just glad if I get a glum, “Can I take your order.”
Now aside from their friendliness this joint is amazing if you have kids. This is the only fast food that I know of that gives you disposable place mats, bendy straws, and allows the kids to trade their toy for ice cream. On several occasions when dining in we’ve had servers help by brining food to our table and even getting items like high chairs, and silverware for our table instead of staring at us while we struggle like most fast food restaurants. Just that in itself amazes me.
Also on the kid front I love that Chick-fil-A is so involved in the community offering several activities monthly for families.
Now while I’m not always in the mood for chicken, (sorry Chick-fil-A cows,) when I am I do love their fried chicken and the fact that it’s white meat. Maybe not the healthiest lunch but very tasty. I appreciate the reduced fat milk and fruit cup choices for the kids meals.
I love Sunday’s but I do have my sad moments when I realize that Chick-Fil-A is closed 🙁
So thank you Chick-fil-A for being kid friendly, community friendly, tummy friendly, and just generally friendly!
