Clicking Our Heels – Our Favorite Food Places to Speed Dial

Last month, we talked about some of our favorite foods. Rather than leaving that topic, we began to wonder what food or restaurant we each have as our respective speed dial favorites. As you can imagine, our answers are a mixed bag.

T.K. Thorne – Assuming we had such a thing where I live (our neighbors are cows), sushi.

Bethany MainesThere is a restaurant down the street that makes the BEST wonton soup, but due to the cost they’re the speed dial button I only use in case of emergency. However, Tatanka Take-Out, down the block in the other direction does know our names and will stay open an extra few minutes so we can run over and pick up our order.

Debra H. Goldstein – Pizza. Any and all pizzerias.

Anita CarterGateway Market for their Cranberry Walnut Salad with Grilled Chicken.

Shari Randall/Meri Allen  I have way too many take out spots on my speed dial. My kids call me the Take Out Queen. But if I had to pick one, I’d say tacos.

Mary Lee Ashford – There are several local eateries on my speed dial and I have to confess that during the pandemic I added a few more. One favorite is Main Street Bakery & Cafe and they have the best Cuban in town. But then for burgers, there’s Lachele’s Fine Foods, and for Italian food there’s Latin King, and … well, my speed-dial is extensive. Bottom line, there are a lot of great restaurants in town and mostly my favorites are the locally owned specialty spots.

Barbara Eikmeier – La Mesa, the Mexican restaurant down the road. I love their Chicken Fajita Taco Salad, their Spanish speaking servers, and their brightly colored painted chairs carved with parrots, flowers and fruit.

Linda Rodriguez – I have a favorite Mexican restaurant, where I am considered familia, the oldest daughter is my goddaughter, and their food is fantastic, so we patronize them a lot. Just a couple of blocks from our house is a soul food restaurant, where we’re also considered family with some of the best Southern home cooking you ever ate in your entire life, and if we’ve not been there for a while, they worry about my health and check in on us.

Lynn McPherson – An NYC deli with big sandwiches, please!

Lois WinstonBecause takeout involves someone other than just me, and he has very pedestrian taste in food, I’m sorry to say that it’s always the boring trifecta of pizza, Chinese, or hoagies.

Kathryn Lane – My own kitchen is my favorite place for favorite meals! I like to know what’s in my food, and I like fresh vegetables year-round, cod chowder when it’s cold, and guacamole in the summer!

Gay Yellen – Hu’s Cooking. Mr. Hu delivers fresh, authentic Chinese every time. Three Cups Chicken, full of garlic, basil, and ginger. And yes, he’s cooking.

Saralyn Richard – My default go-to restaurant is a small, cozy, clean, and friendly Greek restaurant called Kritikos Olympia Grill. Everything on the menu is fresh and healthy, but I always get the same thing–an avocado Greek salad.

Robin Hillyer-Miles – My favorite thing to order is a poke bowl with rice, lettuce, shrimp, edamame, corn, and whatever fits my fancy.

Dru Ann Love – Chinese.

Donnell Ann Bell – Hmmm, I haven’t ordered in since my husband and I moved to Las cruces. Thinking back to Colorado Springs let’s go with Thai food or pizza.
