The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill Authentic All the Way!!!

American Press Travel News–January 9th, Port St Lucie, FL-Barb and Bob “On the Road Again”- This time at The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill. For decades, Barb and I have dined at Greek Restaurants all over the USA and the world, particularly in the Mediterranean side of the world. What we found in our own backyard in St Lucie, County now obviates the need to dine on Greek food anywhere else. The foods and feeling of being at home were a huge joy! Lets face it; we all eat, and need to eat, but really enjoying what we sup on also has another huge component. Get into your Greek, The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is located at 10513 SW Meeting St. shop 101 Port St Lucie, /fl. www.thegreatgreek.com  They offer authentic recipes and Legendary ancient recipes, too!

Hotel Roanoke, a VA. Blue Ridge Great Hotel, Great Chef and Excellent Managers and Staff & More

Hotel manager and our waitress greeting us with a delicious entree. Definitely our favorite restaurant in Roanoke!!

AmericanPressTravelNews-June 5th,–Roanoke, VA. Virginia’s Blue Ridge at the Roanoke, Hotel-Bob and Barb “Stopping to Smell the Roses.” Barb and I made our way to the restaurant for dinner. We had been here several years back and remembered the excellent meal and time we had at the Hotel and its amenities, including their excellent restaurant.  We followed the hill-top overlook star to one of our favorite cities; Roanoke in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. So many great things to see and do here, and the people are so obviously outgoing to locals and visitors alike-we like “friendly” as a genuine attitude, we find it here. VISITVBR.COM

Chesapeake sea food melange of shellfish! Beyond great!
At the transportation museum. Headline: Amtrak will begin passenger traffic again through Roanoke after a hiatus of over 45-years…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our stay at the Black Lantern Inn B&B (540-206-3441) allowed us to easily reach all venues we wished to visit during our stay in Roanoke. Downtown Roanoke was one of our biggest treats. At the market area we had lunch at Nawab enjoying a taste of Indian Cuisine (oh, so for real) and then headed for City Center. How about a pinball museum where you can play as much as you want on a hundred, vintage blasters and banger’s-we loved this and so will you with this “blast from the past.” (stay tuned, more articles and images from Roanoke to come)  visitvbr.com

 

 

 

 

We were greeted warmly and presented with a chocolate slice of double, double chocolate torte!!!
Pinball machines, you can still find them in out- of- the- way old time roadside restaurants and coffee shops, but they are now outdated by the new cell phone and Android gaming generation! Here at the Pinball Museum you can play these oldies but goodies to your hearts and finger flippers content!
Holy Cow; look at what we found at the Science Museum! We found a politician that whined at us!

Franks Grill in Marathon-A Terrific Italian American Restaurant

Barb is in her element! Great food, great surroundings and of course pretty good company too!
Osso Bucco made with pork shanks, and mighty good and plenty! Tastes at Franks remind one of the best meals that momma and papa Leoni used to make in the early days of America.
Yellowtail is a very delicate fleshed dish, few chefs get it exactly right. Franks gets it exactly right and then-some!
