i was reading over my post and i didn't really emphasize on what exact sort of food the restaurants i go to serve.
i like the type of restaurants that serve things like rack of lamb and steaks and seafood all on the same menu. but i'm not really sure how to categorize that so i just chose 'other' on the poll.

While I adore steaks, italian and mexican, I chose the ominous buffet. After all, what could be better than the best buffet Vegas has to offer? (that way I can have 'em all at once!)

I'm really into Vietnamese foods right now, and found a wonderful little place in The Loop that does it right.

SousWee, have you ever been to Mr. Benny's out by Tinley Park? We ate there once when we went upstate for a Farm Aid Concert. Their grilled portobello mushroom appetizer was superb, and try as I might, I've never been able to duplicate it. And the steak was the best I've ever had, even in Ft. Worth.
Loved the atmosphere, too. The owner greeted us at the door himself, a short, stocky Italian gentleman who appeared to enjoy his own food. When we left, he was still there, wanting to know if we enjoyed our meal.

Locally, we don't have a lot of choices, but our favorite is a family run bar and steakhouse. The owner tends bar and his wife does the cooking. They have great rib-eyes, prime rib, surf & turf, shrimp, and spaghetti with her homemade sauce.

For me, definitely a good smokehouse and barbecue, which was very hard to find in Colorado. They're even harder to find in Michigan.

Someday, I plan to move to Oregon, and then I'll... Oh, wait, there's not much in the way of barbecue there, either.

Heck, I guess I'll just have to learn to do it myself.

Well, I have other reasons for wanting to move to Oregon, as it's a huge technological hub, as well as entertainment and media, not to mention the Chinese restaurants.

However, my brother plans to move to North Carolina before too long, so I can always partake of the local cuisine when I visit him.
