One Maudie – Run Away! I’ve been living  in a hotel in Fayetteville, North Carolina, since Jan 13th. NO ONE in this town can cook meat properly, including the steakhouses. I’ve never seen anything like it. Usually, if anything, restaurants overcook meat. Not here. It reminds me of France in the late 1970s, where you […]

4-Maudies – Recommended This restaurant is in a small strip mall with two other outstanding restaurants, Bombay Central and Sakura (see my review of Sakura). Some of the best German food I’ve had outside of Germany. This is a small place and also a bakery. The bakery had a relatively small selection of items, but […]

5-Maudies – Highly Recommended Another great local find in Fayetteville. I am pretty new to Korean food, but what I’ve had I have loved. I went with a colleague who is married to a Korean and has lived there, so I had a good guide for this experience. The staff and owners are very friendly […]

5-Maudies – Highly Recommended Yelp.com says this restaurant is closed. First – this restaurant IS NOT CLOSED. I went there today for lunch. Second, there is a 5-star filtered review that should not have been filtered. I don’t rate many places 5-stars, but this one deserves it. This is a small local restaurant run by […]

Three Maudies – good This is good standard US Mexican restaurant fare. The margaritas are really good. The staff is very friendly. This restaurant is near my training location and the class has gone here a few times. Prices are very reasonable and food is good, if predictable. There are a few Mi Casita’s in […]

Two Maudies – don’t bother This O’Charley’s is bizarre. The only reason I gave it two stars is the staff is friendly and really tries, even if they get everything wrong in my experience. Not sure if there is more than one of these franchise restaurants in town, but this one is at: 1498 Skibo […]

Three-Maudies – good For the food wasteland that I’ve seen in Fayetteville (can you say franchise restaurants?) this should get 4-stars. We went to Matsui, highly rated on Yelp, but it is closed and for sale, hmmm, not sure what to make of that. But, I digress. It was a small place in a strip […]

Five-Maudies: Highly recommended Going to this restaurant was by accident. I’m training in Fayetteville getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan and most of the class goes out to lunch together. None of us have a clue about restaurants here. The lead car was looking for a pizza place and his GPS found it, but was […]
