20 day countdown to Thanksgiving...

Friday, November 06, 2009

I was less than impressed with the "new" Ryan's Steakhouse. There was no fish and very few vegetables. So I actually left feeling "not satiated" which is funny at an all you can eat buffet.

The best things I can say about our meal was half price and I lost weight, lol.

The desserts really weren't much of a temptation for me - just another thing to be thankful for. And most items on the "salad bar" had mayonnaise in them. If you don't know what is on or in a food, you really can't say what you are eating.

However, I was able to find the nutritional values of all the foods when I returned home.

    Nope, NO RYANS in Syracuse either. But that does not BOTHER
    ME AT ALL. I'M a REAL STICK IN THE MUD to my FRIENDS when it
    comes to EATING OUT. I'M VERY PICKY, and MOST RESTAURANT are
    always a DISAPPOINTMENT to me. There are probably less than
    15 restaurants that I have eaten in & at that I would ever go back again, and 5 of them are in Europe, 2 in Montreal,1 in Toronto & 2 in New York City. OOOPS, forgot 1 in Las Vegas,
    & 1 in Denver.
    Now are'nt glad we're not meeting for lunch. LOL
    Have fun you all & God Bless.

    I haven't been too impressed with out salad bar either, being vegetarian for the most part I had the option of pasta drenched in cheese or cake. All I could eat of it. You are looking on the bright side though which is better than I would be behaving. I tend to throw little fits when I'm hungry.

    That's too bad they didn't have more veggies. The one I used to go to usually had quite a few and I stocked up on green beans (love em) and corn with small portions of mashed potatoes (I know not good but I rarely get to have mashed potatoes), some chicken. The desserts never appealed to me and of the ones I did taste they were bland. At least you didn't come out over stuffed as I'm sure most people do.

    Sorry your experience was not a good one. Here, our Ryan's offers lots of veggies, fish and a great baked chicken.
