Armadillo Willy's BBQ!

Sophia says Hi Readers, sorry it's been so long since our last review, we have been really busy! Tonight we went to Armadillo Willy's BBQ for dinner! It is a hamburger, ribs and steak type of restaurant. The restaurant had a parking lot but only for only for people who were eating there. When you get there, you order at the counter and you can get a soft drink there too. I ordered the cheeseburger with fries off the kid's menu and a raspberry lemonade.  When you order, the waiter gives you a device that buzzes when your order is ready.  Then you go to a different counter to pick it up. My food tasted good, the cheeseburger was cheesy and the fries were filling. The people that work there are very nice. I would come back soon.

Josh says: Tonight I went to dinner at Armadillo Willys. I had a cheeseburger and french fries and ketchup. I also had lemonade. The restaurant had good service. It was crowded but we found a place to sit down. And I got a to go box for my dad but not for me because I finished my dinner.

Paul says: I have always wanted to come here and finally did.  I had the ribs with potato salad and fries. The ribs were great, tender and juicy and very good. The restaurant was nice and the food came lightning fast. You order in the front and pick up your food in the back where the tables are. I would love to come back.

Jodie says: We have been hearing about this place for years. When we got there, there was a large crowd of people waiting in line to order but the line moved quickly. I think a lot of people were getting take out. We got one of the last tables and waited for our food to be ready. I had a small ceaser salad and shared some of  Paul's dinner.  There were a lot of kids there and all of the staff seemed really nice and efficient. I would definitely come back.

Sushi Tomi!

Sophia says: Tonight we went to Sushi Tomi because it is my mom's birthday! It is a Japanese restaurant. When we got there it was crowded. They only had a few tables open. I ordered the terryaki bento box that came with miso soup and a small ice cream. It was all very good. If you are vegetarian you can eat here. The service was nice and quick. I would come back.

Josh says: I went to Sushi Tomi and it is a Japanese restaurant.  And we went there because it ismy mom's birthday. I ordered chicken terryaki and I had a strawberry milkshake. A lot of people were there. We sat in a nice clean spot. The food that I ordered looked really tasty. And for dessert they gave me orange sherbet ice cream. I would definitely come back.

Paul says: The food was great and very fresh. I ordered a spicy tuna roll and ebi roll and I shared a spider roll. The service was very fast. We didn't have reservations and there were people waiting outside.  Sushi Tomi is busy even on a Sunday night. I would absolutely go back.

Jodie says: This was a fantastic birthday dinner. Sushi Tomi is a small restaurant in Mountain View and there is usually a wait to get in. We came at 5:30 (1/2 hour after it opened) and it was almost filled. The tables are extremely close together and it was very busy.  I had a spider roll and it was delicious!  Their food is very fresh and the service was very fast. When we left, there was a crowd of people waiting to get in. I would love to go back.

Terrace Cafe!

Sophia says: Hi Readers! Today for lunch we went to the Terrace Cafe. It is located in the San Francisco Zoo. My brother and I split a cheeseburger and french fries and my mom and dad shared chicken strips and we all shared potato chips. We had already brought a lot of snacks to eat. I thought the potato chips were too hard and crunchy and they did not taste very good. The rest of our food was good. They didn't really have service because we picked up the food ourselves and we waited at the counter to get it. I would come back to the zoo but if I came back to the cafe, I would not get the potato chips again. If you have never been to the San Francisco Zoo, we took a lot of pictures and here are some of them. We had a great day and I hope you like the pictures!

San Francisco Zoo, 1 Zoo Road, San Francisco, CA

Josh says: Today we went to the zoo! I saw all of the animals except the lion. We couldn't find him and we think he was asleep. I wanted to see the lion but I couldn't. And there were wild bears and one of them swam in the water and came out of the water close to me. For lunch I had cafe food. It was good. The potato chips were crunchy and the fries were good. I also had a cheeseburger and I liked it. I would of course come back to the zoo. The only thing is it's far away from my house. The last time I went I was 2 years old and I don't remember anything but this time I will remember everything.

Paul says: The chips were greasy although the cheeseburger was big and the rest of the food was good. The zoo has been recently remodeled and its really nice. Would love to come back soon.

Jodie says: We got lucky because it was a beautiful day in San Francisco. The weather was perfect and the zoo was not very crowded at all. The area is so large and spread out and it was amazing to see all the different animals. The Terrace Cafe was fine, the food was cooked to order but there were no healthy choices on the menu.  There were a few other families there and everyone was enjoying themselves.  It was a perfect way to spend the day and I would love to go back to the zoo.
