Two Great Places to Eat, Winners

“The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook.” ~Julia Child

Today I read that two of my favorite places to eat came out on top in their category on the 2009 Zagat Food Survey.

Best Burger: In-N-Out Burger
I have eaten those great burgers since not long after they opened in 1948 in Southern California. They are still as good today as they always have been over all the years and I believe it is because of their on-going use of fresh ingredients. The California family owned business currently has 200 stores, but only in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. But for anyone coming out West be sure to try one. I previously
posted a blog about them.

Best Steak, Outback, National Full Service Restaurant Chains.
For a great steak dinner, they can’t be beat. I have never had a bad meal in all my times of dining there over the last few years. And it is hard to pass up their specialty appetizer, a golden fried seasoned onion. They have 900 restaurants worldwide.

“You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” ~Julia Child (1912 – 2004)

Now if you don’t want to spend the money for a reasonably priced In-N-Out meal: cheeseburger, fries, and a chocolate milkshake; nor for a more expensive dinner at the Outback of a New York steak, baked potato, veggie and their Blommin’ Onion®, how about trying this—it will save gas money, and sure as heck save a lot for the price of the meal. This one would be about $.40 . Yes, that was Cents. And it only takes about three minutes before you have it on your plate. You could fix up a small salad or sliced fruit to accompany it probably for less than an additional .50 cents!

And the famous Chef, Julia Child will show you how....
