Drewski’s Pit Stop

5504 Dudley Blvd

McClellan AFB, CA 95652

Rating: ★★½☆☆ 

In search for good tasting lunch near McClellan AFB, we ended up at Drewski’s Pit Stop. Having tried Drewski’s in the past at their food truck, I had high expectations during this visit. There is a good amount of seating around the restaurant inside and outside.

Today, we ordered the Mustang, Tricycle with a side of Drewski’s famous tots, and Mac & Cheese. The Mustang had Korean marinated beef, kimchi, daikon, sriracha-wasabi aioli, aged Havarti and Swiss on sliced French bread. The sandwich itself tasted quite greasy and was hard to keep together. The beef and kimchi tasted OK, but it didn’t taste special at all. The tricycle is basically grilled cheese consisting of cheddar, Swiss, and Havarti on sliced French bread. The sandwich was definitely cheesy and tasted OK, but there was not much flavor from this mix of cheeses. The tots were the best part because there was a great rosemary flavor that went well with Ketchup. The Mac & Cheese was way overpriced for the tiny cup received, and it didn’t even have much flavor. There was a good amount of cheese though.

Overall, this adventure to Drewski’s was quite disappointing with the mediocre slow service, expensive prices, long wait, and greasy food. If you wanted to try out an interesting sandwich, then Drewski’s would be an option, but don’t expect to eat anything healthy. You might have better luck at their food truck.

No.1 Buffet

7090 Stockton Blvd

Sacramento, CA 95823

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 

The No.1 Buffet has been in Sacramento for many years now, and I have not been back to the establishment for a few years already. I hesitated to come back because I got food poisoning last time. There is a huge selection of food at this buffet. I would say this buffet has one of the largest selections of food out of many buffets. In addition to the ready to serve food that includes Chinese food, sushi, and dessert, there is a noodle station and Korean BBQ station where people prepare food for you.

Today, I just grabbed a variety of different types of food. The skewered chicken was very dry. The sui mai tasted OK. Overall, the food tasted mediocre. The good news is that I did not get sick this time. With that said, if you wanted to eat a large variety of different types of food, then No.1 Buffet would be a good choice, but I would not come here for great tasting food. I probably won’t come back unless I had a really good reason.

McCormick & Schmick’s – Part 2

1194 Roseville Pkwy
Roseville, CA 95678

Rating: ★★★★★ 

We decided to go to McCormick & Schmick’s for lunch since I had a reward on my Landry’s restaurant card. On this lunch visit, the restaurant was not that busy, and there were plenty of tables available. The server was very nice and explained the specials before asking if we had any questions.

Today, we ordered the shrimp pasta, kobe burger, and the chef’s special chicken orzo.  The shrimp pasta had a nice creamy sauce with a bit of kick. The shrimp were huge and delicious! The pasta was cooked al dente and tasted great. The kobe burger came on a nice sized plate with a side of freshly fried potato chips. The beef was juicy and delicious, which also tasted very fresh. The chips were still hot from the fryer and tasted delicious. The chef’s special also tasted delicious with many pieces of sliced tender chicken breast over a bed of perfectly cooked orzo pasta. There was a buttery flavor to the pasta which went well with the chicken.

Overall, the food tasted delicious on this visit to McCormick and Schmick’s and the service was impeccable even with an infant at our table. I strongly recommend this restaurant due to the variety of high quality menu items at acceptable prices. If you wanted to dine out at a classy place with great tasting food, then you should visit McCormick and Schmick’s.

Overall, the food tasted delicious and the service was amazing. This experience definitely pulls me towards coming back here again. If you want to try some great tasting food on a rotating menu, then McCormick & Schmick’s would be a great choice.

Excellent lunch service, great tasting food all around, fresh chips, tasty food.
