I have lived in many cities over my career and finding good restaurants in the area was always important to me.  I am a creature of habit so when I find one that I really liked, I would go there quite a bit.

I am picky about two and those would be Italian and Mexican food.  I was raised Italian so I had some of the best growing up, seems my family made everything from scratch. Now good Mexican food is incredible. I am a huge fan of homemade tamales and they can be tough to find, when I do, I am ready to pig out.

Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
