The room is filled with gleaming white tablecloths, wood floor and elegant-yet-homey decor. As someone shouts “Opa!” a few tables away, delicious flaming saganaki cheese releases a delicious scent that permeated the air and a flame that brightens the room. It’s delightful for most, but especially so for...

It’s the worst way to start off your day: you wake up late, probably forget one or two assignments on your desk and worst of all you miss breakfast. While there is not much you can do about the demerit you’ll receive for running through the commons at 7:58 a.m., there is a solution to your rumbling ...

Filed under *Showcase, Entertainment, Food

Until recently, fast-casual mexican food chains Qdoba and Chipotle could be differentiated in one concrete way: Qdoba has queso. However, as of Chipotle’s mid-September launch of queso in the metro area, the gooey, spicy cheese dip has become yet another point of similarity between the two chains. Even...

I'd really like to take the job of whoever is in charge of prepping and shooting chicken nugget commercials.

The name “Jimbo’s Diner” sounds like one of those good ol', local places you go to grab a burger on a Friday night, which is exactly what we did. Instead of having that nostalgic diner feel, it was more of a  location that reeked of cigarettes with people playing Keno at 7:00 p.m.   Jack...
