In the second most expensive place to live in the nation. That's why I am so surprised what we get to choose from at the tracks and off tracks.  Monterey county, California,

Whenever I say Monterey, I catch myself rolling my r's. The sound drifts from my throat like smoke upon the water.

OK..getting a bit away from the racetracks you just HAVE to try Al's Charhouse in downtown La Grange. It's on the west side of La Grange Road - about 1 block south of the commuter tracks. It's downstairs, and they have a Western accent and decorating. If you have a party and tell them they will come out and all the waiters and waitresses sing you a song complete with tooters and tambourines!!

They have the biggest and juiciest steaks you will ever try to eat. My favorite is the 46 ounce
Porterhouse. They also have a 58 ounce New York strip, and the last time I was there Al said he's adding some HUGE 68 ounce monster to the menu. The baked potatoes weigh about 2 pounds, you get about a pound of steamed vegetables, and if 2 people or more order salad - they bring out a "pass around" salad in about a 2 gallon bowl (with croutons as big as walnuts).
They also have huge chicken dishes, seafood, and about anything else you like.

If you order a "Texas" sized drink it will be about 4 drinks in one glass, but it only costs about $8.50. I only have one and am well inebriated when I leave..WOOHOO!!

Oh, and BTW, the only reason I go to McDonalds or Taco Bell is because they have unlimited sodas. This is the greatest deal ever. Especially for me, because I always have a soda in hand.

You go to some cheesy restaurant and the food ISN'T.THAT.MUCH.BETTER, but they charge you $1.50 for an 12 oz. soda which is filled to the top with ice! Do that 3 or 4 times and your cheesy $10 meal quickly becomes a $20 meal. All of sudden, McDonald's starts looking good.

It's always better to eat at home, though, which I do 90% of the time. With my Soda Club home soda maker. www.sodaclubusa.com

Moon, soda, even diet soda is not good for you.  Drink some water or some beer.  Much better for you.  If you were to go to McD's and order a glass with ice, for some tap water, you would be in much better shape.  It would reduce the Supersize Me effect.

I don't know of any restaurants that charge for refills of soda anymore, at least none that I can think of. Maybe if you are sitting at a bar just drinking soda all day, but that really isn't a restaurant thing to me

How do you figure? Diet soda has zero calories, same as water.

Really? Which ones? It's been a long time since I've eaten in a restaurant, preferring to cook my own.

You bring your own hot sauce.

The Steak Burrito tastes pretty good at Taco Bell with Paul Newman's salsa on it!

The free refills trend started slowly, but it has been common for at least 5 or 10 years now,
literally every place I can think of has it now, all of the obnoxious chains like Chili's, Fridays and on and on, as well as local places. The only exception I can think of would be like I stated might be if you were in a bar atmosphere or maybe an old timer place. I eat out alot and I can't remember the last time refills weren't free.

They are not free here.  No place in town.  Outside of town in chains yes.

Moon,  Moon, diet drinks are terrible for you.

i always order a water, for the buck and a half they chrage for 16 ounces, you can get 3 liters at jewel. it not that i am cheap, its the principle. i won't let  them gouge me like that. besides its health9ier, all thayt sugar in pop, weight gain, etc..

those places pay a majority of thier expenses with the pop sales.

water , cheaper, better for you. those substitute sugars are terrible.

they paly games with your mind. you drink a soft drink and your mind is expectring to be satisfied with the sugar, and the satifaction doiesn't arrive becasue the sweetener is not a sugar, thereby drinking them bumbs you out , because you don't get the mental jolt your mind expected.
