I read about this today.
I like the atmosphere of Walk-Ons but the food is just ok. Not great, not awesome.
That being said, it's way better than anything else in Lake Charles. Like you said, the only thing close to it is BWW.
There's nothing else near the location other than ...

I agree with this with the exception of Italy. It's way overrated. The atmosphere is very nice and all that but the food is just kinda blah.
The Mitsukoshi in Japan is very good. You can take the elevator...

I wish we had a Trader Joe's or a Whole Foods here but I found this at the dreaded Walmart.
I checked at Albertsons and they didn't have it.

[quote]How could that thing cook in 30 min?
I don't use the regular oven that's in the stove. I have a convection oven that I use all the time. Takes some getting used to with the temperatures because it cooks much faster than a conventional oven.
I had to ju...

This was my first try at cooking a roast beef and I'm rather proud of myself!
This was after I took it out of the fridge this evening. I covered it with very coarsely ground peppercorns and set it on ...

Popeyes tenders are pretty awesome. Spicy tenders, small red beans n rice + blackened ranch sauce = :drool:
Tied for favorite would have to be the Chick Fil A sandwich. I've loved those things since I was a kid. We would have to get a few at the food court in either Lafayette or Beaumont m...

You can get a box of 6 salisbury steaks from Banquet for almost nothing.
Make some good mac and cheese to go with it.

This one is sort of a half and half, by that I mean you need to cook the noodles but other than that, you can do the rest in the oven.
This is so freaking good.
2 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 1/4 cups milk, warmed
1 teaspoon salt
