Reunion - American Food At It's Best

Being a food critic can often mean separating your emotion. It means foregoing your expectations and going into each review with an open mind and a clean slate. Most times, this is a relatively easy thing to do. However, on a rare occasion, I walk into a new restaurant to do a food review filled wit…

I would like to begin this review with the statement most often uttered during our visit. This statement in some form or another was voiced by almost every person in attendance. This was, “Normally I don’t like_____ but here it is really good!”

Healthy, Fresh And Filling, Urban Joe's

Growing up in the city of West Allis during the 1980’s I recall our dining options to be somewhat limited. There were a few fast food options, some chain restaurants (I still miss Big Boy) and that was pretty much it. With the rebirth of the city the last few years much has changed. There are a few …

I found myself driving out to the town of Brookfield this morning to enjoy a blissful breakfast with Margie. We chose First Watch. First Watch is a cha…
