About to go to Perkins. I have only ever had the chicken tender melt for probably 13 years. Should I stick with old reliable or is something else worth trying?
I've only had breakfast at Perkins. Get some and post pics. I'm hungry for biscuits.
For a real treat go to waveland cafe in des Moines. Biscuits and gravy is unreal there
I had some East China Cafe today. I usually try and order different stuff from there so I can try everything. I had the Bejing Chicken, I'm pretty sure it wasn't chicken. It was like pork and vegetables. Play it safe. Someone thought it was dog or cat. Now that just creeped me out.
Well maybe I should just stick with what I know. Biscuits and gravy sounds pretty good though...
This. I almost wasn't aware perkins served anything other than breakfast
Also this. I never even bother looking at anything but the biggest breakfast meal that I can get while I'm there, don't care what time of the day it is but eggs, bacon, and waffles or pancakes is what I get every single time. I realize they have other "options," however considering you never hear people talking about how awesome that burger or steak was from Perkins, I'm quite fine with saving that stuff for burger joints and steak houses. I mean really if the place is known as a specific kind of restaurant, why even bother going against what they do best? The only exception for me is that I hate Mexican food so the few times I've gone to Mexican places to eat, I either get their burger or a plain fajita (sp?).
Side note, I'm actually fairly disappointed with some of the Chinese places around IC. There are some which are pretty decent, but the small Chinese restaurant in my hometown at least has better chicken and probably is cheaper than most of the places in IC. Best China usually ends up being my go-to for Chinese, I've also been to Yen Ching but was highly intoxicated so I don't really remember how the food was.

Try China Wok on Muscatine. That was go to.
But our tastes may be different, as Mexican is my favorite type of food. I could pretty much eat it everyday.
Go with something new. I always branch out when I go to restaurants i frequent often. I figure I'll be back sometime soon and I can get my usual then, and to get something new now.
I just got pie.
Well this thread was anti-climactic.
The pie is awesome. But you should have got some breakfast.
Get the Kickin' Chicken next time you go. Its UI approved.
