It is pretty darn sad when a valet picks you out as a big Boma eater

As soon as my pictures finish loading to my photobucket and my (new) fiance gets back from the store to tell me his take on the dishes (I tried them, but figured I'd get his opinion), I'm gonna start. I can do the first few without him, since we had the same thing. Just waiting for these darn pictures!

Taco Bell

I'll start off my review with Taco Bell. Why? Because that's the first thing we ate. Makes sense.



Mmmm, airport Taco Bell.

Thankfully, the prices didn't reflect it too bad.

4 soft tacos, a large drink, and a water bottle - $7.92



The soft tacos were, well, soft tacos. Standard Taco Bell fare. Good, but not the best.

Ham and Cheese Sandwich

I took a picture of this, so I figured I'd include it.



How was it? Good, but not near as good as meals we'll be reporting.

Whispering Canyon Cafe

Well, we found ourselves here:


And got:


We sat down after it went off, and got these:


Here's the little chef:


I got an all-you-can-eat milkshake:


Delicious! It was so good! But, it was really filling. I probably should've only had one glass, but I had about 2 and a half. The whipped cream was some of the best whipped cream I've ever had.

Corn Bread:


I wasn't that big of a fan of this corn bread. It was good, but it was too dry for my taste.

Nic and I got the All-you-can-eat skillet. I don't know what everyone else got, nor did I take pictures. We were all a little crabby because of the fact that we got a little lost driving over.



Well, the corn-on-the-cob was good. Standard corn-on-the-cob, you know? Baked beans were okay. I'm a big fan of straight baked beans, while these had other things in them (bacon, etc). The mashed potatoes were amazing! I kept asking her to bring me just more of those. I didn't like the sausage, but I don't like sausage. Nic said it was good, but that it wasn't the best. I didn't try any ribs (not a rib person either), but Nic says they were alright. Again, not the best, but alright. The chicken was the same way.

Overall, I'd say it was a general mediocre. Good, but we weren't blown away or anything. Our server was nice, but she didn't do any of the fun stuff. But, there was a lot of funny stuff that other people did do.

I don't think we'll go back, unless we're staying there, but it was still good.

As far as cost, I'm not sure. We didn't pay.

Can't wait to hear more, thanks for writing the reviews! And I love the pictures, especially the Taco Bell, the ham sandwich, and the "little chef", that's being a thorough reviewer! This is going to be a fun read.
