I’m not sure how many times we’ve mentioned gyros over the years, but it’s no secret how much the Nerd Lunch crew loves that Greek delicacy.  We haven’t discussed breakfast food nearly as much, but I love it too.  I could eat breakfast food anytime and regularly tee up eggs or pancakes for lunch or [...]

Upon returning form Europe most people would probably talk about the diverse cultures, natural wonders, or historical sites they experienced. But I’ll leave that sort of thing to Rick Steves and focus on the really interesting stuff: fast food.   One of the few things I requested from my hosts was a trip out for [...]

One of the greatest things about returning home is being able to visit all the restaurants you loved, but don't have around your new area. It's been six years, but I still long for several places in the Champaign-area, many of which are fortunately still around. But just as some places go, there are new [...]

Mark your calendars, gyro fans. This Tuesday, August 31st, is Kronos Free Gyros Day. Simply print a coupon from the Kronos website, enjoy a free gyro at one of dozens of Chicagoland restaurants, and help out some veterans by making a donation to Fisher House. Sounds like a great deal to me.

Niro's was the choice for hossin' during our day long sessions of DVD watching or D&D playing and the gyro was [...]
