Acme Oyster Bar – New Orleans, Louisiana
John – 13
The Acme Oyster Bar is in the city of New Orleans and is next to Bourbon Street. They have one of the best oysters on the half shell in the United States. They also served a lot of good food too. I got a Philli steak poboy, and it was one of the best poboys I had that week! The French Fries were good too. The oysters I had were fresh and some of the best I had ever tried in the whole United States. The French fries I got for an appetizer were covered in cheese and also had a lot of gravy on them too. Which they call poutine or boo fries. They were only $4.99 for an appetizer order of fries. If you wanted to eat good seafood at a good price I would recommend going there to eat. The oysters were $14.99 for a full dozen on the half shell. They were served with cocktail sauce, crackers, and lemon wedges. I thought that although it was on Bourbon Street, if you ate there early, you would be okay to bring your kids with you. I also thought that the inside of the Acme Oyster Bar was nice and family friendly.
The Acme Oyster bar is located in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is on the street over next to Bourbon Street. The Acme Oyster Bar is kid-friendly and has really good food. The best thing to get there are the oysters. The oysters are clean and do not have a seafood taste. They also have a contest where you have to eat 12 dozen – the record is 42 dozen oysters.
We got six, and I ate 2; so did my brother and mom. For dinner I got the shrimp Po-Boy. The Po-boy was good, but it wasn’t the best in New Orleans. For an appetizer we got French fries that were covered in cheese and gravy. The fries were delicious and were very flavorful. Even as a meal – you can get them as a side.
Now back to the shrimp Po-Boy. I ate most of it, and it had a lot of shrimp in it. The shrimp was also tasty. My sister got the crab chowder, and it was a really good soup. The Acme Oyster Bar is a really good place to eat in New Orleans, and it is affordable. You will want to get there early because you will have to wait. By the time left, there was a line down the sidewalk. So if you are in town, eat at the Acme Oyster Bar.

Rudy’s has one of the best barbecues in all of Texas – even though their slogan is “the worst BBQ in Texas”. Rudy’s is in a gas station and all though it looks like it wouldn’t be a great place to eat, it actually is delicious. The best thing to get a Rudy’s is the brisket. The brisket at Rudy’s. It is full of juice and has a lot of different flavorings that add spices and other flavors to it that make it really juicy. Another thing to get a ruby’s that is really good is their cream corn it has a lot of corn in it and is covered in a rich cream that has sugar and tastes really sweet. If you do decide to get the cream corn then I would add a hint of salt to it to take away from a bit off of the sweet taste from it. Another thing that I love to get at the place is there sausage. The sausage is full of spice and is really juicy. The sausage is packed full of spicies that makes the sausage really spicy. Since the place is in the a gas station I would go and get a drink at the gas station rather than at Rudy’s. I would like to go eat at Rudy’s again and I hope that u decide to too.

Rudy’s Barbecue is one of the best in Texas. The best thing I like is the brisket that the serve. They don’t put the barbecue on the brisket for you, and I don’t put any “sause” on it because it is so good without the sauce. The cream corn they serve there is also the best side they serve, and it is very good. I recommend getting a lot because you will eat a lot of it. Rudy’s is also located in a gas station, and they have a lot of different locations in Texas. You can also order ribs, sausage, and chicken. Other sides you can get potato salad, coleslaw, beans, and a big pickle. Also at Rudy’s they have pop and other drinks in glass bottles that are fun to drink out of. If you live or are visiting Texas look at eating at a Rudy’s near you it is delicious.

Rudy’s barbecue is one of the best BBQ in Texas. I like their brisket and creamed corn the best. Rudy’s is in a gas station. You can pick your own drink, and they sometimes give you samples of the creamed corn. The creamed corn is mainly corn with cream. I love it the best there. If I had to choose one thing to eat there. A lot of people love Rudy’s brisket and creamed corn the best. You should go to Rudy’s!

Twisted Root Burger is a fun family like place to eat. You have a large selection of cheeseburgers to pick from. My favorite is called the swiss mushroom. It is the same burger that George W. Bush had when he goes there to eat! My favorite thing at the place is the names. They have names they give you of famous people and when they call up your name, you come and get your food. For example our family was given the name John Madden. The food is really good – tender meat that is full of flavor and juices. They also let you pick out the type of pickles you want. The choices they have are original dill, wasabi, hot and spicy, and bread and butter pickle chips. They are in a self-serve condiment area. They also let u put the type of sauces you want on the sandwich. My favorite sauce was the Dijon mustard with horseradish mixed with mayo. I put it on my sandwich and also used it as a dip for the fries. A good example of this place is like a Five Guys Burger and Fries only a little fancier. So if you are in Dallas Texas and near it, I recommend going to eat there.
Twisted Root Burger is a good place to eat because their cheeseburgers are good, especially if you put bacon on it. George W. Bush has also eaten there, and he got the mushroom swiss that my brother got. My brother said it was really good. The burger I got was the make your own, and I got cheddar cheese, bacon and then put on the mayo and mustard. If you want pickles, you can put them on too – there are like 5 different kinds. Your order is ready when they call you up by famous names. The one we got was John Madden. You don’t get to choose the name though – I wanted to be called Neymar. We also ordered french fries, onion strings (fried),and sweet potato chips. All the sides were really good. We sat outside and it was fun because we didn’t eat until late, so it wasn’t to hot or crowded. Twisted Roost also had its own homemade sauces; one was a mustard horseradish which was really good and wasn’t spicy at all. If you ever come to Dallas, Texas, and are hungry eat at Twisted Root Burger.

We went to eat at Twisted Root Burger. On the door it said, “We are slow, but the food is good!” That was kinda true, they were a little slow, but the food was really good. When you order, they don’t put pickles on your burger, because you get to put on your own pickles. The pickle bar has lots of pickles to choose from – butter, spicy, sweet, and dill. I got a cheeseburger with no bun. It was good because their cheeseburgers are really good. They put a lot of cheese on it. I had french fries, and they were crispy. We ate outside. Inside the air conditioning was cold. They had neat tables that had soda pop tops sealed in them. They looked neat. I would go there again because I liked the burgers and I really liked the pickles they had.
Doc’s Beach House is a good place to eat if you are at the beach. Doc’s is located in Bonita Spring, Florida. You have four options to sit and eat — inside, inside up stairs, outside by the beach, and outside in the front entrance. The owners are from chicago and have a lot of chicago stuff like the Bulls ( basketball team) and Bears (football team). They have a bunch of diffrent colors, like light green, blue, and red decorations and things hanging all over the walls. They have only one men’s and women’s restrooms. The restrooms are really small! They have many different appetizers, but we picked chicken wings and fried zucchini. The chicken wings were really good and juicy. The wings were medium, but they were not very spicy – almost mild. The zucchini were good, and came with a really great sauce. It was a texas (spicy) ranch dipping sauce. The zucchini were in crispy strips not in round circle pieces. For our entree we got their pizza. It was one of the worst pizzas I have ever had; it was terrible. (This is my personal opinion. My uncle thinks their pizza is great and orders it every time he is in town.) The pizza was burnt and had this nasty wierd taste. So if you do go for dinner get the wings they are the best. On other visits, we have ordered the clam strips, tuna salad sandwich, fried grouper. I would recommend any of those items over the pizza.
Doc’s Beach House is right on the the beach. We sat outside when we went this time. If you sit inside, you can go upstairs. It is really cool up there. It is decorated with all sorts of sports stuff. It is also air conditioned upstairs for in the summer when it is hot. W e got the chicken wings, the fried zuchini, and a large pizza. The chicken wings are breaded and fried. For the chicken wings you can get mild, medium, and hot; we got medium and they were good. The fried zuchini was cut in sticks and fried; they were really good. Now the pizza we ordered was okay. We got pepperoni, sausage, and mushrooms; the crust is thin crust. It had a lot of cheese and the toppings, but it was just okay. The atmosphere is pretty cool because if you sit inside then you can see the beach. I have been to Doc’s before, and I got the shrimp. It was better than the pizza.

Doc’s is a restaurant. You can sit upstairs, downstairs, outside, or by the beach. It is big with all of that seating room. It is nice because when it is hot outside you are right by the beach. You can just wear casual clothes, like a shirt and shorts with flip flops. You could wear your swimsuit and sit outside even. The wings were good. They are were kind of hot and really juicy. I also had their pizza. It was kind of good. I did not like the crust. It should have been better for waiting 45 minutes to get it. You have to wait that long if you order pizza there. The sausage was really spicy on the pizza, and I did not like that. There sauce on the pizza was tangy and not good. I would go there again and have something else. I went to the bathroom, but I almost got locked in it. They have a slide switch and not a door lock. I could not get it open and couldn’t get out. I had to pound on the door and keep pulling on the latch. Don’t go to the bathroom at Doc’s.
Royal Scoop is one of the only great places to eat ice cream. Royal Scoop is in Bonita Springs, Florida. The inside is kinda nice and looks like an old fashioned ice cream shop. (The floor is really bad and needs to be cleaned more often than normal.) They have a lot of different ice cream flavors to pick from. You can pick how many scoops you want on the ice cream cone or bowl. They also have free water if you are thirsty. You can buy hotdogs and a lot of other types of food and sandwiches there too. When we went, I decided I wanted something different, so I picked a chocolate covered waffle-bowl as my dish. For my choices of ice cream, I picked cookie dough and black cherry as my flavors. The cookie dough had a bunch of chocolate chips and a few pieces of cookie dough in it. The black cherry ice cream has little bits of cherries in them that taste really good, and then the ice cream is soft and easy to eat. It all melts quickly too. You can buy different colors of Royal Scoop’s t-shirt. Royal Scoop is really popular, so you may be waiting a while before you get to pick your ice cream. Sometimes the line wraps around the outside of the front porch. However, it is worth the wait! It is a really good family place to eat ice cream.
Royal Scoop is probably the best ice cream I have ever eaten. They have sandwiches and other items on the menu, but you really want to focus on the ice cream. At Royal Scoop they have different flavors to choose from. My personal favorite is the cookie dough. It has a vanilla ice cream with lots of little pieces of cookie dough in it. When you order you need to only get one scoop because they really give you two scoops – their scoops are big and one is enough. When you choose a cone I recommend getting the waffle cone; it is really good. You can also order a bowl with a cone in it. You order a cone, but have them put it in a bowl, so as it melts you can eat it with a spoon. When you arrive you might have to wait a while, but it is worth the wait. There is not a lot of seating in Royal Scoop, but they have a porch and you can sit outside. It is not fancy. You can wear your swim suit with a shirt on to go inside.

Royal Scoop is a good ice cream place. You can pick what flavor you want from a lot of choices. You can pick out a bowl, a bowl with a cone, a waffle cone, or a waffle bowl. I ordered cookie dough and chocolate chip. The cookie dough was good because I really like the cookie dough in it. They give you a good amount of cookie dough. The chocolate chip ice cream was good because I like the ice cream and the big chocolate chips. The chocolate chip ice cream is the best. The restaurant is kinda clean. On busy days there are two lines to go through. On regular days there is one line to go through. It is worth waiting in line to get Royal Scoop ice cream.
