Sonic’s New Lil’ Griller’s For Kids

 Sonic’s New Lil’ Griller’s For Kids

 Just in time for Valentine’s Day.  Grab your kids for a fun parent-child date and head to Sonic.  Right now you can get a taste of a brand new menu item, Lil’ Grillers.  Perfect for kids of all ages and they come in a variety of flavors.  This was my first time at Sonic and we had a blast.  It is a new generation of a 50’s diner.  We drove up in the pouring rain to a parking space in a carport and ordered from a menu board into the restaurant.  We paid outside and when our food was ready a server brought everything out to us.

The Menu Was Amazing!

There is so many choices, it was hard to decided what to order.  We had choices of burgers, sandwiches and more plus a ton of drink options.

The Lil’ Grillers are a fun-sized take on a classic grilled cheese sandwich.  We ordered one with chicken, a burger and one with just cheese.  They also have a breakfast one.  Each mini-sandwich is on sourdough bread toasted with American cheese. lil' grillers

The chicken Lil’ Griller had two slices of sourdough bread, crispy chicken, melted cheese and buffalo sauce.  It was a neat treat for my daughter to try all three and have a nice variety in her meal.  They are great for a snack or a few for a full meal and each are only 79 cents! lil' grillers

 

 

Each Lil’ Griller begins with Mini Sourdough Toast and warm, melty American cheese. Guests can choose to intensify the flavor experience by adding crispy chicken, a burger or even breakfast nestled into their Lil’ Griller. Lil’ Griller options available all day include: Lil’ Cheese Griller, Lil’ Chickie Griller with a Chicken Strip and Buffalo Sauce, Lil’ Patty Griller with 100% Beef Patty and Ketchup, Lil’ Breakfast Griller with egg and your choice of bacon or sausage.

 

Sonic also has a huge selection of Slushies and drinks!

A huge amount of fun fruity flavors and fantastic prices.   They even have special prices at certain times of the day. My daughter tried the Green Apple Blast and said it tastes like a Jolly Rancher candy.  Besides these drinks they also had shakes, ice cream and Sonic Blasts.

 Sonic Drive-In is a fun place for the whole family.  Next time you want to take your child on a parent-child date this is a great place to have some fun.  Be sure to check out the Lil’ Grillers on their menu.  Right now they have five different types.  Plus you can stop in for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack or dessert.  Food is brought right to your car.  With fantastic food and great prices it is a win-win!

Teriyaki Madness: Fresh Asian Grill

Teriyaki Madness: Fresh Asian Grill

There is this fabulous restaurant we recently dined at.  This was our first time here.  Located in Santa Clarita and a great place for lunch or dinner with dine-in and to-go options. If you want to try a  Fresh Asian Grill then look no further.  Once you dine here you’ll be hooked.  There is definite madness to how insanely delicious the food is.

28227 Newhall Ranch Rd, Santa Clarita. 661-775-8623.

The cuisine is a delicious asian grill with lots of healthy choices.  We got to sample quiet a few and were impressed with the fresh food and lively staff.

  • Pick a protein.
  • Pick a base.
  • Choose bowl or plate and sides.

2016-08-06 12.35.34 My daughter tried one of the chicken teriyaki bowls with some steamed veggies.   Great low-carb meal made to order.  2016-08-06 12.50.59 The shrimp tempura was to die for!  It comes with a delicious sweet and sour sauce for dipping and was my favorite on the menu.2016-08-06 12.51.27 Chicken Potstickers are something I love eating in restaurants but can’t seem to perfect at home.  Having a choice of 6 for $2.99 means I can get them from Teriyaki Madness all day long!  2016-08-06 12.51.39 Chicken Egg Rolls.  Crisp and delicious with lots of chicken inside.  My daughter loved these and didn’t want to share.

2016-08-06 12.52.20 Me!  Enjoying the food.  Note the sign behind me!  They weren’t kidding.  I love the meal choices.  Being diabetic means I watch my carbs.  I love the low-carb options, like having stir-fry or fresh veggies and even four salads to choose from.  I even brought home some Yakisoba Noodles for my son (he love soba noodles).  This is definitely a new favorite place to dine when we are in Santa Clarita.  If you live elsewhere check out their store locator.  They have restaurants all over Los Angeles and in three other states.  Grab a chicken bowl.  Hire them for catering. Dine in with the family. 2016-08-06 13.09.11-1 You must try the crab rangoons too.  I’d never even heard of them before dining at Teriyaki Madness but after trying them once I’m craving more.

Dining On Applebee’s New Wood-Fired Salads

 I love eating salads. I can honestly enjoy one for lunch and dinner, daily, and be totally content.  However, I don’t want just greens and salad dressing.  I like to fancy-up my salad by adding more and when I’m dining out I like to try new salads on the menu.  Right now Applebee’s has four new delicious salads on their menu.  The wood-fired salads are available starting at $8.99 and come in fantastic summer ingredients.

Right now you can try:

  • Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad.
  • Grilled Chicken, Avocado & Grapefruit Salad.
  • Southwestern Steak Salad (my favorite).
  • Crispy Chicken ‘n Cornbread Salad.

All of these exciting salads plus five fresh salad choices, drinks, steaks, burgers and more are available.

I love how flavorful this was and it was super filling too. All the veggies were super fresh and the salad was tender and juicy.

2016-08-05 14.49.24 My son ordered the Steak with steamed broccoli and a delicious mac & cheese with bacon on top.

 His first time trying mac & cheese like this and he loved it.

StoneFire Grill Lunch Menu

StoneFire Grill Lunch Menu

 I love meeting friends for lunch so we can enjoy our meal while hanging out and catch up while eating.  Time is always of an essence and cost is too.  I recently went to a media dining at StoneFire Grill and got to try out an assortment of dishes from their new menu made just for lunch.  Dishes like salad, sandwiches, soup, pizza and more.  Nothing to heavy to tire me out when it is only mid-day.  I love the low-carb variety too.

West Hills Location

stonefire grill

Right now StoneFire Grill has 9 locations in SoCal and is growing.  A great place for a quick lunch, nice relaxing diner or even hang out with friends.  Every time I’ve been to Stone Fire Grill the service was top notch and food superb.  My orders have always been 100% accurate and extras, like servers stopping by our table to see if we need anything else, are fabulous.

I prefer a salad at lunch and love that I have a nice selection.  Since I try to eat a salad every day for lunch and dinner to keep my blood sugar low it is hard to make it where the salads aren’t mundane.  Stone Fire Grill has seven specials from the new $7 lunch menu.  They can be found at locations in the Los Angeles/Ventura County area.

The kids always pick the pizza (is anyone surprised?) but I get them to eat some salad too.  Salads are a nice way to get some greens in their diet and I love the fresh and green salads.
