REVIEW: Cooks And Cuffs Will Captivate You, Says Doc Kaalberg

REVIEW: Cooks And Cuffs Will Captivate You, Says Doc Kaalberg

In 1888 Vincent Van Gogh painted quite possibly my favorite work of art. Cafe De Terrace. It was part one in a series of three. Fast forward to 2021, and Chef Keys from Cooks and Cuffs has cooked for me her Cafe De Keys. This New York born and raised Chef found her way here, to our bustling little metropolitan area, looking to start a new life with her husband. What’s she brought with her is a style of cooking all her own. To call what Chef Keys does in the kitchen is cook, is an insult. If Pavarotti hummed a diddy next to you, would you call it humming or listening to a musical master?... Read More

No Doubt About It: Doc Loves Double Ds... In Davenport

As I smash my face between these tasty juicy breasts, I realize why I love Double Ds. Sorry, that is a little vague. I realize why I love the Buffalo Chicken breast sandwich from the Double D Diner and why I order two at a time. With all of our differences between us cant we all agree that Double Ds is what this country needs to heal? Even my wife agrees with me though her lower back hurts, and she hasn’t really enjoyed them since she was in college. She does loves a good pair though. Sorry, Buffalo chicken breast sandwiches, got distracted again which is easy to do with Double Ds…Diner.... Read More

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

Janie’s Riverview Cafe A Little Bit Of Home In Buffalo, Iowa

Janie's Riverview Cafe A Little Bit Of Home In Buffalo, Iowa

There’s a little bit of home, a little bit of vacation, a little bit of a view, but a lot of love at Janie’s Riverview Cafe in Buffalo, Iowa. This journey I’ve been on for over a year now to bring my reviews to every local restaurant has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. I meet folks, shake hands, bump fist, laugh and learn a little of their story so I can craft mine. If you drive too fast you might miss this quaint little stop a long the river, and that very well maybe a mistake. Home cooked styling and hearty plates will make you feel right as rain.

Doc Gives A Full-Throated (And Bellied) Review For Davenport’s The Half Nelson

Doc Gives A Full-Throated (And Bellied) Review For Davenport's The Half Nelson

As restaurants struggle to reinvent themselves, The Half Nelson reimagines the world around it. Walking in you’ll see a world transformed to a time when things bamboozled you. I feel completely underdressed! Maybe I should be wearing a nice suit and slick my hair back with some Dapper Dan. Whatever the case, the Half Nelson is bringing the 1920’s to the 2020’s with a little style and panache. I wish I could say that I found this time machine located in Downtown Davenport towards the end of 2nd Street. Instead, I was invited and treated by Chef Philip Pridemore. This Chef... Read More
