Arizona Food Tour

Last Saturday following the wedding I went on a food tour for lunch. My good friends Dede, Liz, and Jenn came along to eat some good grub. We went to three places and had some great food.

Stop One: Chino Banditos, This place is a Mexican-Asian Fusion place. It sounds weird, but it is delicious.

We got their best dish. It is a Red Jade Chicken Quesadilla. (It tasted exactly like orange chicken)
It came with a side of black beans and jerk chicken rice. This is the second time I have been to this place.

Rating: 5 out of 5 bald heads.

Everything is great! Even the snickerdoodle that comes with the order. It is rich, fresh and cooked perfectly. It is soft, yet has a firm texture.

Stop Two: QT

No visit to Arizona is complete without a stop to the QT gas station. They have a plethera of beverage choices. Smoothies, horchata, soda, slushies, ect.

Stop Three: Chicago Hamburber Company

We ordered their award-winning sliders. They are very high quality and put White Castle to shame. We also ordered their award -winning Banana Shake (I am not a big fan of banana shakes, but this one left an imprint on my tastebuds).

Hamburger: 3.5 out of 5 bald heads

Fries: 1.5 out of 5 bald heads

Banana Shake: 5 out of 5 bald heads

Stop Four: Ted's Hot Dogs

We ordered their normal beef dog, another one with chili and cheese. We also ordered a side of fries and onion rings. Their hot dogs were very good and are shipped from a place in Buffalo, NY. But the shining star of this place was their onion rings. They were dynomite!

Hot Dogs: 3.5 out of 5 Bald Heads.

Fries: 2.5 out of 5 Bald Heads.

Onion Rings: 5 out of 5 Bald Heads

Overall it was a successful food tour. If I was to piece together the perfect meal from these three places; I would order the orange chicken quesadilla from Chino Bandidtos, onion rings from Ted's Hot Dogs, banana shake from Chicago Hamburger Co., and wash it all down with a Vanilla Coke from QT! (That would be a party I am not sure my tastebuds could handle).

OH MY GOSH! I FEEL LIKE I MISSED OUT BIG TIME. I'm glad you feel the same way about those onion rings! Next time I'm home, I will get some!
