Wendy’s Asiago Ranch Chicken Club & Bacon Ranch Fries


If you are not a fan of ranch dressing, then you will not like Wendy’s items that they are promoting this month. They are featuring their Asiago Ranch Chicken Club Sandwich and also Bacon Ranch Fries. Their Asiago Ranch Chicken Club is served 3 different ways, with Homestyle (crispy chicken), Grilled and Spicy being your three options. Wendy’s Asiago Ranch Chicken Club features a tender, all-white meat chicken breast topped with thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, Asiago cheese, creamy ranch sauce, hand-leafed lettuce, and hand-sliced tomatoes. Since I was going to opt for the fries as my side item, I went ahead and decided Continue reading “Wendy’s Asiago Ranch Chicken Club & Bacon Ranch Fries”

Fiddlestiks Buffalo Chicken Salad


I have been to Fiddlestiks before and performed a review of their Buffalo Chips. These were homemade chips that were piled high with buffalo chicken to form some of the best buffalo chicken nachos I’ve ever had. Feel free to read the review for that in the attached link above. I thought these were so good that my return review trip to Fiddlestiks was for a similar item and that is their Buffalo Chicken Salad.

The Buffalo Chicken Salad is bite size chunks of chicken marinated in buffalo wing sauce, lettuce mix, tomatoes, shredded cheese, sliced egg & croutons. As with all salads on their menu, this is served Continue reading “Fiddlestiks Buffalo Chicken Salad”

Wendy’s Taco Salad


I remember years ago when this was at Wendy’s but I never had the nerve to try it. Luckily for me though, the Taco Salad is back at Wendy’s and I can finally put this to the test! Wendy’s Taco Salad is topped with their famous chili, shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, chunky salsa, and yellow corn tortilla rounds for a salad that’s anything but ordinary. You can also top the Taco Salad with sour cream if you choose as they provide that in packets on the side.

As you can tell, this is a little different from a normal taco salad as this Continue reading “Wendy’s Taco Salad”

KFC Chicken Little $5 Fill Up


KFC $5 fill ups.. I’ve done these before and I’ll likely do them again because for $5 they are pretty hard to pass up. Today’s variety that I’m trying out is the $5 Fill Up featuring two Chicken Littles. Two Chicken Littles are served with a mashed potato and gravy, a cookie and a drink for just $5. You can sub out your side to potato wedges or green beans though if you want so I chose to do green beans this day instead of the heaping pile of mashed potatoes they were going to throw on me.

If you have never had a Chicken Little before, they are Continue reading “KFC Chicken Little $5 Fill Up”

Burger King Sausage, Egg & Cheese CROISSAN’WICH


I’ll admit that I’ve always been a little scared to try Burger King’s breakfast. I’ve always feared the “fake egg” taste and thought it would just be too much to make it that enjoyable of a meal. Today I will attempt to overcome my fear as I am finally giving it a go and I have ordered a Sausage, Egg & Cheese CROISSAN’WICH. Their grab-and-go Sausage, Egg & Cheese CROISSAN’WICH is piled high with savory sizzling sausage, fluffy eggs, and melted American cheese on a toasted, flaky croissant.

This was one of my rare meals as I didn’t get the sandwich and eat it right away in restaurant. This was a quick drive thru stop, and I took it home with me. Because of the Continue reading “Burger King Sausage, Egg & Cheese CROISSAN’WICH”

Taco Bell Chicken Power Bowl


Taco Bell’s Chicken Cantina Power Bowl is not a new item but its a first time item for me as it’s something that I have never gotten before.The Cantina Power Bowl contains marinated, fire-grilled white meat chicken, romaine lettuce, guacamole, pico de gallo, avocado ranch dressing, shredded cheddar cheese, and reduced-fat sour cream, on a bed of Latin rice and black beans. This bowl is priced at $4.99 and is also available in steak for an additional $1. Best of all, even with the sour cream, guacamole, and avocado ranch dressing, this entire bowl is just Continue reading “Taco Bell Chicken Power Bowl”

Burgers ‘n’ More Philly Steak


Burgers ‘n’ More Delivery LLC  is a great concept but it might be something you may have never seen or heard of before. Pizza delivery, of course, is everywhere. Chinese and sandwich delivery are in many towns as well. But cheeseburger delivery? Come on! Who has heard of that?? Well in the small central Illinois town of Carlinville, there has a place doing exactly that! Burgers ‘n’ More has been open for just a couple of months, but this idea of burger delivery could be exploding to a town near you. You can order cheeseburgers, chicken strips, hot dogs and many Continue reading “Burgers ‘n’ More Philly Steak”

Burger King Homestyle Cheeseburger


New to Burger King’s menu this time around isn’t a mashup for the first time in a while. Burger King is going simple.. but simple in a good way! Burger King has introduced a Homestyle Cheeseburger that is a ¼ lb of savory flame-grilled beef and a simple layer of melted American cheese, topped with crunchy pickles, yellow mustard and ketchup on a soft sesame seed bun. This is a great add to the menu for someone who doesn’t want all the veggies that come on the Whopper, but they still want a ¼ lb flame grilled patty. This item went straight to BK’s numbered menu so you would have to think that it isn’t just a promo item, but something that Continue reading “Burger King Homestyle Cheeseburger”

Mark Twain Brewing Company Loaded Fries


The Mark Twain Brewing Company opened in 2014 in historic downtown Hannibal. This it not my first time here, but this is my first review that I will be completing for this location. The Mark Twain Brewery keeps about 10-12 beers on tap. Most of these are their own but they have a few guest taps from other breweries that are also served. If you are looking for a small town microbrewery to sample some brews, this is a great location to try as they have a wide selection to choose from. With Blondes, Red Ales, and IPA’s on tap, you most certainly can find at least one of them to satisfy your taste buds!

After seeing a Facebook post promoting a special of the day called Loaded Fries for $4.99, I had to go in and check this item out for myself! Their Loaded Fries looked to be something right up my alley since I’m a big fan of the horseshoe! This delicious bowl was made with their house seasoned fries covered with their Beer Cheese Dip, Smoked Pulled Pork, BBQ Sauce, and Red Onions. All it was needing was a piece of Texas Toast and this thing was a horseshoe. Close enough for me so lets dig in!


I will first say, for $4.99, I thought I was going to be given a “lunch sized” portion. For someone with a healthy appetite, that typically means leaving wanting just a little bit more to be completely satisfied. That though, was NOT that case with this as it was one hell of a meal for $4.99. There was a nice large pile of crisp fries making up this base. I make sure to mention crisp because that is a key factor to a horseshoe-like meal. If you are going to cover it with cheese, do not overcrowd the fryer and make sure to let the fries get crispy. I’m not saying hard.. but crispy because when you douse them with cheese, they will soften up. These fries were PERFECT for this type of meal. Another great thing is that the fries actually had seasoning on them as well. There are so many places you go do you get a plain tasting and boring freezer fry but these were not your ordinary fries you get. These would have been good fries even if they wouldn’t have been topped with Pulled Pork, Cheese and BBQ sauce.

The pulled pork was good as it had a nice mild natural smokiness to it and didn’t taste of fake liquid smoke taste. The amount of pork you received was also a good sized portion which was great since you got such a large quantity of fries. There was enough of all ingredients to go around and last the entire meal. That is, IF you can finish it!

Of the times that I’ve been into the Mark Twain Brewing Company in the past before the start of my food blog, this is hands down the best thing I’ve ate there, especially for the price! I wish it was something that was on the regular menu maybe served with a side salad because I could see myself eating this many times for dinner with a tall cold glass of beer!

If you were curious of the wait time to get the meal over lunch, it was very reasonable. Our waitress disappeared for a little at the very end which extended the time a little bit but all in all, I was still in, eating, and out within 30 minutes which would be perfect timing if you were a local stopping in on a lunch break.

You can stop in and check out the Mark Twain Brewery for yourself at 422 North Main in Hannibal MO.
