Romano’s Macaroni Grill

Cuisine: Italian

This is just another Italian chain restaurant, much like the Olive Garden, except they use macaroni noodle. My dish wasn’t really that bad!

Cuisine: Greek | Mediterranean

Not bad, not bad. I thought this was gonna be just some vegetarian food. I had a smoked turkey wrap which was really good. Mediterranean fast food! I liked it! I’ve been there twice! If you want fast food that may be healthier choice, this is the place to go to! Good desserts as well!
