Our Favorite Restaurants

Last night Duck Dude and I joined a whole bunch of my former athletes for team dinner!!  It's always fun for the girls to see Duck Dude... and it was a restaurant I have been wanting to take him to! A hole in the wall BBQ feed store. Which led to today's post.

Our favorite restaurants! We love trying new places and finding new "spots." Some of these are hole in the walls, some chains, and one grocery store. Seriously! They are in no particular order. Maybe it will give you a new idea for dinner this week!
