We all have those restaurants that we just end up eating at whenever we want to go out. It doesn’t matter if we are going to try something new, you end up at one of your usual favorites. I live in Maple Grove, MN where practically half the city is restaurants, shops, or doctors offices. So there are a lot of choices when it comes to eat in my large suburb city. And I typically find myself at one of three places. And all of them have familiar foods, but I do have favorites at each place.

TGI Friday’s

This is very close to home so I find myself eating there a lot. Mainly because I don’t feel like cooking that day or I was on my way home and found myself sitting down to eat something. It’s bad how often I go, the waiters recognize me to the point they don’t need to look at my ID to know I’m of legal age or have to ask for what drink I want. And I thought I mixed it up enough, apparently I don’t. I learned that out just the other week.

But if I’m eating there I end up either going for a burger if I want a full meal. Or mozzarella sticks and some loaded potato skins if I just want to snack while checking up with either my mom or sister. Though I love many other items on their menu, I generally end up ordering this every time.


Similar to TGI Friday’s in that they have a little of everything. I end up always getting the same thing. I combo appetizer as my meal with artichoke dip, quesadilla, and mozzarella sticks. What can I say I love me that cheesy goodness. Sometimes I will mix it up and get some wings.

Red Lobster

If I’m craving sea food, there is no where else I will go. For a while there, my family did birthday dinners and every year I picked Red Lobster. I don’t know if it’s the snow crabs or the spinach lobster dip that I get every time. But whenever we go, they hit the spot. We even get the lobster dip every year for Christmas.
