REVIEW: Quad City Pizza Company Is Just Damn Good Pizza, Doc Says

No fancy plates here just damn good pizza. It’s so freaking good. Why doesn’t it look like your average slice? Because it’s cauliflower crust. And I can assure you it’s packed full of flavor. I don’t understand it either. But that’s why it’s a company secret. The Quad City Pizza Company secret. Maybe it isn’t a secret, I don’t ask a lot of questions. What I do ask is for my kids to leave this alone and eat their regular human pizza. This is first time in a week I haven’t cried over my “healthy diabetic friendly” meal.... Read More

For A Moveable Feast, Sink Your Teeth Into The BBQ And More Of Stevieseatz

For A Moveable Feast, Sink Your Teeth Into The BBQ And More Of Stevieseatz

For three hours on a Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Stevieseatz to chew the fat. (Pun intended). Across the nation there is a movement known in some circles as the “Ghost Kitchen.” A Ghost Kitchen, for those of you not in the know, is a professional kitchen with a time share where several businesses or chefs stir up their creativity and desperately try to fill your plates. Stephen Dearborn is one of these up and coming Ghost Chefs if you will, providing tasty dishes on a time share and sharing them with appreciative diners. The dream is lofty, the goal... Read More

REVIEW: Doc Says To Make Moline's Meli's Pancake House Part Of Your Breakfast Journey

Today’s breakfast was an impromptu stop at Meli’s Pancake House, 1320 5th Ave., Moline. I didn’t expect to find a classic diner when I went in, however I’m always up for surprises. This isn’t your usual Mom and Pop breakfast place, it’s something more. While the menu is full of the regular staple items, it offers a comfort in knowing anything you choose will be amazing and fit for your needs. Whether a giant stack of fluffier than life pancakes or a perfectly cooked steak and eggs, the staff is there to make sure you’re happy. The decor and feel gives tribute... Read More

For Mexican Food So Wonderful It’ll Make You Cry With Joy, Try Moline’s Coya’s Cafe

For Mexican Food So Wonderful It'll Make You Cry With Joy, Try Moline's Coya's Cafe

Pulling upto COYA’S CAFE , I see a grown man in the parking lot sitting quietly in his work truck. He catches my attention because I see him with a half unwrapped burrito in his hand, and tears streaming down his face. I’m genuinely concerned, but I’ve yet to eat today and he looks like he wants to be left alone. Inside Coyas it’s like part candy store part kitchen of magical offerings. I ordered the Carne Asada Burrito and Carne Asada Tostadas. Monday’s for meat eaters. A glass bottle of Mexican Coke, and an order up later I’m back in the parking... Read More

Doc Has A High Time In His Latest Review Of Nature’s Treatment Of Illinois

Doc Has A High Time In His Latest Review Of Nature's Treatment Of Illinois

I apologize for the late review. After picking up a couple of gummy bear edibles from Nature’s Treatment of Illinois, I made a mistake. After listening to many of my friends, especially the shady ones I was told to eat only a 1/2 or even a 1/4 of one to start. Being a big guy, whose in a quite a bit of pain i said hell with it and popped a handful. What could it hurt? LEARN FROM ME!. One hour after I said this isn’t “shiznit” I was sitting in the passenger side of my van talking to myself, who was in the driver’s seat about not driving while high. This conversation... Read More

Taste Of Ethiopia Is The Quad-Cities’ Jewel Of The Nile, Doc Says

Taste Of Ethiopia Is The Quad-Cities’ Jewel Of The Nile, Doc Says

Next to the Mighty Mississippi River sits a hidden gem. Our own little Jewel of the Nile if you will. Taste of Ethiopia will bring you a new way of experiencing the Quad Cities, in a more flavorful way. Today’s review is somewhat sponsored and two parts. I sat down with Consumed Foodie , too experience this restaurant. While it maybe a new experience to us, I have a feeling we’ve been missing out. Families and couples flow through during our lunch break and order large dinner plates and laugh and carry on as if they were right at home. The patio which offers an amazing view of the river... Read More

Doc Kaalberg Fuels Up With QC Fuel

Doc Kaalberg Fuels Up With QC Fuel

Just stopped by QC FUEL for a quick smoothie and ice coffee for the kid. One sip in and I feel like I just got a 1-2 combo uppercut by a mango strawberry smoothie made special by Hannah at the Moline location. I mean holy shiznit! This thing will put hair on your chest and then shave it off. I was on my way to run errands, now I’m trying on bootie shorts and getting ready to lead a virtual spin class on my neighbor’s peloton with Fergalicious blasting in the background. Do I feel emasculated because I’m drinking a smoothie and my daughter got a coffee? A little bit, but do the... Read More

Doc Is Found Guilty... Of Loving Davenport's Gunchies' Pizza

So there I am driving home with my sausage pizza from Gunchies Davenport. I’m jamming out to NWA rolling in my 2007 Honda Minivan, Pepto Bismol for my tummy ache that’s coming from my eventual encounter with too much pizza and dog treats for my husky Abrodog Lincoln, all in my reusable Hyvee bag #savetheearth sitting in the passenger seat. I’m loving the new air freshener from Yankee Candle my wife picked out, Vanilla bean ahhhhhh that’s my jam. The chorus starts playing and my extensive 90s gangsta rap lyrics knowledge takes over. Let’s make something clear.... Read More

Looking For Some BBQ Tonight? For A Hot Time Doc Prescribes East Moline’s Smokey’s Country Diner

Looking For Some BBQ Tonight? For A Hot Time Doc Prescribes East Moline's Smokey's Country Diner

Tonight I got two phone numbers. I wasn’t trying for either, however I guess I still have game. Not many BBQ ribs around here are suck-the-meat-off-the-bone good. But hot damn Smokey’s Country Diner in East Moline is a winner. There I was minding my own business, gnawing every morsel of deliciousness off the bone when I looked up and saw his face. At first I thought he was disgusted. He looked away quickly and I continued my vigorous method until the bone was clean. Shortly afterwards I even licked my plate clean. Now, at that time, the person who I thought was the man’s... Read More
