    It's ok to put lettuce, tomato, pickles and cheese on a chili burger; right?

    I could sell this. I was going to include a loaded baked potato, but for a moment of logic.
    1-1/2" bone-in mesquite grilled Rib-eye, grilled marinated asparagus & beefsteak tomatoes.
    Marinade is Newman's Olive Oil & Vinegar with salt & pepper and Mrs. Dash Garlic blend...

    We used to watch it all the time, havent watched in awhile.

    We like to hit up the places that have been on there if we are near them.

    I think little restaurants have much better quality food than do the chain restaurants. There are quite a few on Triple D that I'd like to try.

    Same here, I'm more likely to hit up a hole in the wall than I am a chain.

    We've got a wing place by the office down here, the wing place is in a shopping center that's run down and has a gas station, wings are awesome.

    The bad thing about triple D visiting a place is as soon as it airs there is a 3 hr + wait time to get in. At one time when we went to Atlanta we would always stop at a really good place until it was featured on there and we haven't been able to get in since and that was 4 years ago.

    There was/is a place in Charlotte called The Penguin.

    It aired on triple D in like the 2nd or 3rd season, so it's been awhile. The wait times after it aired were similar to what you said.

    The people that ran the restaurant didn't own the name or the building, the name and building had been around Charlotte for 50 years and had been ran by different folks. It didn't turn into a cult classic until the management group that was on Triple D took over it.

    Once their lease came up, the owner of the building and name told them to pound sand, they wanted to profit off of success they had. They re-opened Charlotte landmark called The Diamond literally 100 ft from the Penguin and another place called Pinky's on the other side of Charlotte.

    The Penguin just recently filed for bankruptcy.

    Moral of the story, if you're ever in Charlotte and want to check out a Triple D place, don't go to the Penguin, go to The Diamond or Pinky's. They are the true "Penguin".

    I was flipping out for the past hour. Couldn't find my recipe folder. I even drove over to my storage.
    Finally found it. Some of the recipes I wouldn't have been able to replace.
    1940 LAUSD Roast Beef Hash recipe from the L.A. Unified School test kitchen.
    The real Gladstone's Malibu clam chowder recipe
    My buddy Merle's carrot cake with real cream cheese frosting
    Madeline's Lemon Jello cake
    My famous meatloaf recipe
    My deli-style vegetable pasta salad & special dressing...
    To name a few.
    This past hour sucked. I forgot that I hid the folder.
