Travel Eats

I wasn’t sure what to name this blog post. So I figured to be very basic and call it what it is… LOL! Travel Eats.

I am not a “foodie” blogger. At all. But I do try to go to popular or “must eats” restaurants, if possible.

*Disclaimer*: I LOVE pizza and waffles. So if you see a lot of that on my list, now you know why. LOL!

I will update the list every time I travel and visit new restaurants. Now, some of the places listed are from some of my visits from 5+ years ago. So if the quality of the restaurant has changed, I’m sorry.

*If you scroll all the way to the bottom, you will see a gallery of photos from some of the locations I listed below.*
