Rock Island’s Igor’s Is Scary Good

September 11th, 2023
Rock Island's Igor's Is Scary Good

The first iteration of Igor graced the silver screens in 1933. Today Igor has been in some variation of different personas in many different classic horror movies as a bumbling and loyal assistant to mad scientist and evil monsters. However, Igor’s Bistro offers up something different, than a campy horror movie. You could say its less B-Movie and more Blockbuster hit. Although I wasn’t invited into the kitchen I’m sure that they aren’t cooking up meals in a bubbling cauldron, and Chef Rick, isn’t a mad scientist, but more a Chef of 40+ years. Most of the menu... Read More

Davenport’s Van’s Pizza Gets High Praise For Its Food

Davenport's Van's Pizza Gets High Praise For Its Food

One of the most requested spots I’ve had here, Van’s Pizza, Pub & Grill had some hidden treats to offer. While the Taco Pizza didn’t score high, I’m giving this place some respect and high praise. The staff was in a upbeat mood and that energy transfers over to the overall feel of the business right now that means a lot in the food industry. Chips: 13 Points. Not as crispy as I’d like, kind of a bland taste. Sauce: 10 Points Refried bean sauce here, just missing the flavor I look for. Toppings: 12 points Chips were a little large for the offering here, very... Read More

Davenport’s New Restaurant Verde A Spicy Good Place For Taco Tuesday

January 10th, 2023
Davenport's New Restaurant Verde A Spicy Good Place For Taco Tuesday

Un-ironically, I spent a Taco Tuesday at Verde a contemporary Mexican restaurant located off the foot of the Iowa side of the New 74 bridge. Verde opened close enough to 2 years ago. The dream child of Chef Connor Larson, has been growing legs and learning how to not crawl but run in this shaky economy. While other restaurants have been forced to shutter doors, take days off, and change business models. Verde seems right at home, offering a smaller more intimate relationship with its customers; seriously customers? I question my use of the word here, customer. No I’m not breaking a... Read More
