Road Trip
Essentials To bring on the trip:
By: Angel Pearson & Patra Bluestone
In 1948, the first In-N-Out Burger was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder in Baldwin Park. Harry's idea of a drive-thru hamburger stand where customers could order through a two-way speaker box was quite unique. In that era, it was common to see carhops serving those who wanted to order food from their car. Harry's idea caught on and California's first drive-thru hamburger stand was born.

Olive Garden welcomed its first guests in 1982. Nearly 30 years later, Olive Garden remains committed to its purpose of Hospitaliano! - providing 100% guest delight through a genuine Italian dining experience.
The reason I chose this restaurant is because it is a well known burger joint that is known all across America.
The reason I chose this restaurant is because it service amazing food and the service is great.
Breakfast on the 11th
Two Traditional Belgian Waffle, Two Large Apple juices= $21.56
In 1958 founders Al and Jerry Lapin, along with early investors Al and Trudy Kallis, open the first International House of Pancakes in the Los Angeles suburb of Toluca Lake, California. In 1963 the company adopts the name International Industries after it acquires numerous franchised brands, which it controls throughout the 60s. Brands include: International House of Pancakes, Orange Julius, Love's Wood Pit Barbecue, Golden Cup Coffee Shops, The Original House of Pies, Wil Wright's Ice Cream Shoppes, among others.
The reason i chose this restaurant is because it is a welcoming and the people there are nice and always have a smile on their face.
Crab Shack:
Lunch on the 11th
Coconut shrimp, Two waters= $13.58
Joe's Crab Shack opened its first location in Houston, Texas in 1991. Landry's Restaurants, Inc. purchased the original Joe's in Houston in early 1994 to convert it into a Landry's Restaurant. By 1995 the chain had grown to three locations in Houston and one in Dallas.
The Crab Shack is a nice place if you just want to chill and eat some refreshing sea food. That is why I chose this place.
Dinner on the 11th
Two Chicken Caesar Salads, Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp and two waters= $30.08
Applebee’s International, Inc., is an American company which develops, franchises, and operates the Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar restaurant chain. As of December 2011, there were 2,019 restaurants operating system-wide in the United States, one U.S. territory (Puerto Rico) and 15 other countries. The company is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri after moving from Lenexa, Kansas in September 2011.
Applebee's is a great place the service is good and the foods is even better.
Denny's :
Breakfast on the 12th
Two All-American Slams, Two FUZE Rasberry Teas= $21.56
Harold Butler and Richard Jezak opened Danny's Donuts in Lakewood, CA in 1953. In 1955, after Jezak's departure from the then-6-store chain, Butler created and changed the concept a year later in 1956, shifting it from a donut shop to a coffee shop with store #8. Danny's Donuts was renamed Danny's Coffee Shops and changed its operation to 24 hours. In 1959, to avoid confusion with Los Angeles restaurant chain Coffee Dan's, Butler changed the name from Danny's Coffee Shops to Denny's Coffee Shops. Two years later, in 1961, Denny's Coffee Shops became simply Denny's. The business continued to grow and by 1981, there were over 1,000 restaurants in all 50 U.S. states. In 1977, Denny's introduced the still-popular Grand Slam breakfast.
I like Denny's due to the fact that thier food is still warm when you get. Also because of the envioronment, it is a very 'family fun" place.
Cheddar's was founded in 1979 by Aubrey Good and Doug Rogers. The first location was in Arlington, Texas, and the chain reached 10 locations by 1995.
By 2003, Cheddar’s had 42 restaurants in 13 states and Brazos Private Equity Partners made an initial investment to grow the company that year.
The food there is the best. Everytime i go there i get the Monte Cristo is is by favorait dish and on top of having AMAZING food the service is great too. Although the wait can be long it just makes the food that much better.
The original Red Robin stood at the corner of Furhman and Eastlake Avenues E. in Seattle, at the southern end of the University Bridge. This building dates from 1940 and was first called Sam's Tavern. The owner, Sam, sang in a barbershop quartet and could frequently be heard singing the song "When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along)". He liked the song so much that he eventually changed the name to Sam's Red Robin.
Red Robin is a great place to go if you're graving a nice and enjoyable burger, and also the surroundong are wonderful too, it is such a welcoming place, from the lights outside to the wait staff inside.
Paris France:

During World War I, the French created a dummy version of Paris to the city's immediate north. The plan was to fool German planes into thinking the Potemkin city was the real thing, thus leaving the City of Lights untouched by bombs.
Paris Texas:

On September 6 of 1914, France was hanging from a thin line, the fleet of taxis drove under cover of darkness from Paris to the front lines of what would become known as the Battle of the Marne. Carrying reinforcements that turned the tide of battle against the Germans, the taxi drivers saved the city and demonstrated the sacred unity of the French people.
Reason for choosing this city:

Not only does it correspond with a European city that a part in WWI but it also had a part in WWI as well.

Rosie’s Mexican Cantina-

Dinner on the 12th
Two Enchilada Specials and two sprites= $19.57
The food there was very good and the vibe there was cool too. It also has good rates and reviews. costumers have liked the food and the service. one of the reviews were, "the staff was super friendly from the moment I walked in the door. I wasn't seated long before a waiter came to explain that my waitress would be just a minute but he could go ahead and take my order. My waitress was very enthusiastic about her job and incredibly nice.
Third plus is my food was very good. I ordered a Mahi Mahi taco from the lunch menu which is described as: one warm flour tortilla filled with seasoned & grilled Mahi-Mahi fillet. Mexican slaw, zesty tartar sauce & marinated onions on the side. Served with cilantro rice & black bean soup. All for $8.99."
Sunrise Diner:
Breakfast on the 13th
Two All American Breakfast combos= $27.50
In 1985 Don McClean, owner of McClean Builders, was hired to do some construction work on a restaurant at Mar Jean Village. On completion of the project his customers were unable to pay. In lieu of payment, they offered Don a diner they owned in historic downtown Lafayette.
The Sunrise Diner is a good place to eat breakfast because if has a lot of options to choose from. The food is good and so is the service.
Cici's Pizza:
Lunch on 13th
Two Adults Buffet, two drinks=$13.96
Joe Croce and Mike Cole founded CiCi's in 1985 in Plano, Texas.
In 2001, with 363 restaurants at the time, the chain expanded its buffet offerings and began remodeling restaurants. Four years later, CiCi's had more than 500 locations, and was the fastest-growing pizza chain in the United States.
The food here is awesome and the service is good. The reviews of this place are good too, one says, " love the atmosphere here!! The staff is wonderful and fun!! They say you get what you pay for however in this case that is so far from the truth. What you get here is great customer service, cleanliness, great price for the food. This far surpasses the above said comment because I would much rather come here and spend less money than go anywhere else and pay for way overpriced food and mediocre food, or crappy service and know I'm going to actually enjoy my experience and food."
Red Lobster:
Dinner on the 13th
Ultimate Feast and Two Lemonades= $30.48
Company founder Bill Darden opened his first restaurant, The Green Frog, at age 19. From the beginning, Bill’s restaurants focused on quality and service. With a passion for seafood, it was only a matter of time before Bill and his team opened the first Red Lobster in Lakeland, Fla., in 1968.
By the early 1970s, the company expanded throughout the Southeast, establishing Red Lobster as the leader among seafood and casual dining restaurants.
Not only is Red lobster known for thier amazing seafood selection but also thier wait staff as well, one of the reviews say, "We have had another wonderful experience here at Red Lobster. The food was excellent and our waitress Shawna W was amazing. She helped me with my drink selection and made the experience great. If you come here ask for her. She made great suggestions and made us feel really welcome."
Waffle House:
Breakfast on the 14th
Egg-n-bacon with two strawberry and banana smoothies= $25.53
When Joe Rogers, Sr. bought a house from Tom Forkner in Avondale Estates, GA., in 1949, neither one knew where that relationship would take them.
It’s the mid 1950’s. Joe Rogers and Tom Forkner were neighbors–Joe working for a national restaurant chain, the Toddle House, and Tom in the local real estate business. Since employee ownership was not available with the Toddle House, the idea of starting a business they could own and share some ownership with each other seemed like a good idea. Joe and Tom wanted to create a restaurant focused on people–both the associates and customers–while serving quality food at a great value.
One out of mant reviews said, "This place is soo busy yet the food and service are still top notch! Be prepared to wait it will be worth it though. Ordered the bacon chicken melt bacon extra crispy even through bread a layer of cheese and a chicken breast you could still hear the crunch! Everything came out exactly the way it was ordered. Teki our waitress is top of the line!"
Jersey Mike's:
Lunch on the 14th
Two American classic sub combos= $23.47
It started back in 1956, in this actual storefront location and was originally called Mike's Subs. Mike opened the small shop in the sea-side town of Point Pleasant, New Jersey. You have to remember that in 1956, there were very few franchise restaurants or hamburger chains. No chain pizza, chicken or taco restaurants, either. In 1956, proprietors or mom-and-pop businesses would open their stores in basic storefront locations like you see here. To survive and thrive, they had to offer exceptional quality products, coupled with unparalleled service. In 1956, Mike was unique in that the product he was offering was a relatively new item in American society – the submarine sandwich
The food is awesome and the the reviews say, "Had one of their subs for the first time this afternoon. It's been about six hours and I'm still stuffed. On top of that, it was delicious. We each got the cheese steak something or other. I can't remember the name of it, I was starving at the time, but it came with the option of rosemary bread, which was really great. They have a few types of bread you can choose from. They have hot and cold sub options, and it also didn't take that long, especially considering that there were a ton of people in the store. Will be back!
Golden Corral:
Dinner on the 14th
Ejoying The Buffet= $30.00
In 1971, James Maynard and William F. Carl conceived the idea that became Golden Corral after several unsuccessful attempts to acquire a franchise with other companies. Golden Corral was incorporated in 1972 and the first Golden Corral Family Steak House opened on January 3, 1973, in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
The company has since expanded to 500 locations across the United States; about 100 of them are company-owned. The others are franchised stores. Gross sales are over $1.53 billion.
Breackfast on the 15th
Two Egg Mcmuffins and Two Orange juices= $15.38
The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald at 1398 North E Street at West 14th Street in San Bernardino, California. Their introduction of the "Speedee Service System" in 1948 furthered the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant that the White Castle hamburger chain had already put into practice more than two decades earlier. The original mascot of McDonald's was a man with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger-shaped head whose name was "Speedee". By 1967, Speedee was eventually replaced with Ronald McDonald when the company first filed a U.S. trademark on a clown-shaped man having puffed-out costume legs.
Torchy's Tacos:
Lunch on the 15th
Two Jack's of Clubs and two Cokes= $27.33
Michael Rypka and Bill Roberts opened Torchy’s Tacos in 2006 in the city of Austin, Texas. Rypka went to culinary school in Miami, Florida where he learned the necessary cooking skills he would use later on. He also had past experience in restaurant management. Roberts is no longer on the Torchy’s team, but while a part of it, he managed event planning and marketing. The duo opened up Torchy’s Tacos in a food trailer due to lack of sufficient funds. The start was difficult with a house mortgage and maxed out credit cards, but with perseverance the taco joint took off. From many critiques came the restaurant’s slogan “Damn Good.” Today, Torchy’s Tacos operate numerous restaurants and one trailer park in Texas, and have even won several awards and positive critiques nationwide.
Dinner on the 15th
Two Shrimp Pasta and Two water= $37.45
The reviews are positive about how good the food is and how good the wait staff is.
One review says that, "Great italian restaurant! Very friendly staff and lots of booth seating. Also the kitchen is open - love that you have the ability to see your meal being prepared...
The warm bread and pesto when you first arrive is to die for and the house wine was very good. Tried the lasagna, grilled pork chops ( which were marinated in something yummy) and their house Italian dressing for the salad - recommend! Great job guys thanks for a fantastic experience
