Restaurant Review: Spanky’s Food Factory

Details: Located at 2458 Jericho Turnpike, Garden City Park, NY 11040. Official site is

I came here for lunch one day. I ordered a cheese burger with fries and a coke, which all came out to a little over twelve dollars. Everything was good and I was surprised to see a double cheeseburger was the default size.

Everyone who works here was pretty nice.

Overall, an okay place to get fatty foods like buffalo wings, burgers and milkshakes. They got a bunch of other stuff too like cheese steaks and various stuff over fries. It was a bit pricey though. For these prices, I expect a Shake Shack quality burger, and this wasn’t quite that good. I probably wouldn’t come back and would instead opt for Cherry Valley if I wanted some food that was fatty and sinks to the bottom of your stomach.

Score: 7/10

Restaurant Review: Bellagio Pizzeria & Restaurant

Details: Located at 211 Airport Plaza Blvd, Farmingdale, NY 11735. Official site is

Bellagio Pizzeria is a local pizzeria and restaurant. You can sit in and just get a slice or you can get waiter service in the area in the back.

I ordered a bunch of stuff here since I was starving when I arrived. I had a sicilian slice (cost $2.95) and a sausage slice (cost $3.45). I also gelato for around four dollars. I also had a side caesar salad with grilled chicken for a little over ten dollars. This is all without tax.

Everything was fine. This is a very home style American-Italian, family run restaurant. Don’t expect trendy flavors, just expect some pretty good family style food that you could probably make at home if you wanted.

Score: 6.3/10


Restaurant Review: Red Lobster

Details: Located at 211-217 Old Country Rd., Carle Place, NY 11514, among other locations. Official site is

Not too long ago I went to a Red Lobster and found that every single thing I ordered was some of the worst food I’d ever had. Truly, Red Lobster is one of the worst places to eat in America. I can see the appeal if you live inland and have no access to seafood. However, if you don’t, there is almost no reason to ever visit this den of bad food.
