TV Dinner Palace Review


November 30th, 2007

The Eat SheetThis restaurant has TV’s all over the place.  Big ones.  Eh, I’m talking 19 to 22 inches.  I can’t get that luxury at home, so I head over to TV Dinner Palace to watch all my sports games on their rabbit ear antennas.  Suckers.  It’s an after work, too lazy to cook, paradise.

The Eat SheetEh, this restaurant reminds me of home.  You can show up wearing whatever you want, and you'll fit right in.  No reason to dress up here.  In fact you pretty much just microwave everything yourself.

Name: Aunt Laura's Family Restaurant

Slogan: "Where an alcoholic uncle berates you.  Family Style!"

Setting: Below Casual (You can pull off briefs and a tank top here.)

Distinguishing Characteristics: Cracked tile floor, cockroaches, red checkered table clothes, Spaghetti served on tables, dirty tables.

China Man Buffet Review


August 10th, 2007

The Eat SheetEh, this little restaurant has been one of my favorites for years.  It has been a source of comfort in the lonely times of my life.  The teal decor never ceases to soothe me, and I am forever enchanted by the popular Asian techno music that fills the air.

Name: China Man Buffet

Slogan: "No Longer Serving Dog, Also Try Our Homemake Lemonade!"

Setting: Below Casual (Always a plus for me!)

Distinguishing Characteristics: A Large plastic chandelier, a murky fish tank, a quasi Asian gift shop, and a gigantic gold Buddha with awkwardly large nipples.

Price: $5.95 for all you can eat buffet with free Pezzi.

Cuisine: Mostly Chinese American, with doses of pizza, chicken wings, macaroni and cheese, and chocolate pudding. (Truly fine cuisine) 

Feature Entree: Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine
