Coal Fire

I went to a new place called the Coal Fire. It's a pizza place in Hunt Valley, and since I really like pizza, my dad drove us there.

When we got there, we had to wait for a table. While I was waiting, I noticed that there was outside seating and a bar as well as a place were you can see the chefs make the pizza, which is heated up in a coal oven, like the name suggests. Though we didn't have to wait long, and soon we were at our seats.

On the menu there were pizzas like Margherita, which is basically cheese pizza with basil and tomato sauce, Bianco Speciale, which is white pizza with Parmesan cheese and tomatoes, and Ring of Fire, which is a pizza with banana peppers, Italian sausage, and mozzarella cheese. There were also salads on the menu, like Greek, House, and Field Greens. There was pasta like Pesto, Coalby's , which is like a sub sandwich, like Ribeye, and Coal Fire Wings, which were just chicken wings baked in the coal oven. Finally, there was a kids menu, but the only item I can remember that was on it was Macaroni & Cheese. My family split a white pizza and some wings, except for my sister, who had the Macaroni & Cheese.

While we waited, we did the activities on the kids menu. After that, my dad decided to get a beer called Monty Python's Holy Grail, and since my dad owns the movie, he decided to try it.

Finally, our food came. The pizza was delicious! It wasn't greasy at all and the crust was thin. You could really taste the white sauce. The wings were tender and juicy, but the skin was kind of tough. Finally, I want to comment on the Macaroni & Cheese because my sister didn't like it, and the reason why I think is that the cheese taste was too rich for a kids menu food item.

I give **** stars for food and ****1/2 stars for kid friendliness. The reason why I only gave 4 1/2 stars for kid friendliness was because they needed more entertainment like more activities.

I would suggest making the skin on the Chicken Wings less tough and the Macaroni & Cheese taste less rich

I would love to come here again, especially so I can try the Ribeye Coalby. Well, that's all. Bye!

Bird-in-Hand Bakery and Creamery

I went to another place during my vacation in Pennsylvania called Bird-in-Hand Bakery and Creamery. I went here for dessert instead of getting milkshakes at Jake's Wayback Burgers, since my mom wanted to try Shoo Fly Pie.

From the road, it looked almost like one of the other houses, except for it's sign out front. The Store was closed, but it's ice cream window was open. There were only 2 places to sit outside, though there was no one eating there.

On the menu, there were items like hand dipped ice cream and soft serve. They also had some items from their store, like snicker doodle cookies and slices of pie, that you could order.

I had a twist soft serve sundae with marshmallow topping, while my brother had a twist soft serve sundae with caramel topping. My mom had Shoo Fly Pie and my dad and sister shared Snicker doodle cookies to go.

My ice cream was delicious! It was creamy and the marshmallow topping was a great addition to it. I also tried some of my mom's Shoo Fly Pie. It was delicious! It was moist and almost tasted like there was apple in it. And the best part was it was homemade from scratch!

I give ***** stars for food. The reason why I didn't give a rating for kid friendliness was because it only sold dessert there, and anyplace that sells dessert is a 5 star rating for kid friendliness to me!

I would like to come back here for some more ice cream and baked goods. Well, that's all. Bye!

Jake's Wayback Burgers

I went to a place called Jake's Wayback Burgers during my vacation in Pennsylvania. My dad said that it was a great place to get burgers, and he suggested we go there. I said yes, since I love burgers(especially if they have bacon and BBQ sauce on them).

The restaurant was a fast food chain in a diner theme. I saw lots of old photographs on the walls and a television.

On the menu, there were items like the the Cheesy Burger, a Turkey Burger Club, Chicken Caesar Salad, a Chili Cheese Dog, and their special Triple Triple Burger. There was also a kids menu, which had items like Chicken Tenders, Grilled Cheese, and a Junior Cheeseburger. Finally, they had milkshakes like Black and White, Orange Cream, and Chocolate Banana.

I had a Junior Cheeseburger with BBQ Sauce, but without bacon, since my dad said no when I asked him, while my brother got a Cheeseburger with Ketchup and Mustard, and my dad had a Jake's Cheesy Burger. I also wanted a milkshake, but we decided to go somewhere else for dessert (you will have to read my next review).

It didn't take long for the food to come out and my burger was delicious! The patty was moist, tender, and juicy, and the BBQ sauce tasted great with the beef burger.

I give ***** stars for food and **** stars for kid friendliness. The reason why I only gave **** stars for kid friendliness is because even though there was a kids menu, a television, and fast service, there really wasn't anything else there. I would recommend adding something else for kids to do, like a coloring page or a type of toy with the kids menu.

I would really like to go back there, especially to try their milkshakes. Well, that's all. Bye!

Bogey Macaws

I went to a place called Bogey Macaws with my family. The reason why we came here was because my Aunt Lisa thought this would be a good place for me to review.

The restaurant is located on a golf course. We went on a Sunday night and there was almost no one there. It was separated into different sections and you could even sit outside on the deck. We were seated in room that looked like it was reserved for parties. The restaurant also had TVs and a game room with an arcade and Ballocity play area.

The menu had lots of items like Hand Tossed Pizzas, lots of different kinds of fries and Hot Dogs like Cheese Steak Fries and Bogey dog, a Waffle Club Sandwich, Burgers, Chicken Wings, a Broiled Crab Cake, and Buffalo Chicken Salad. There was also an all-new kids menu, which had Grilled Cheese, Chicken Tenders, Macaroni and Cheese Spaghetti & Meatballs, Grilled Chicken, Grilled Hot Dog and French Bread Pizza. With any kids meal, you could get the Super Kids Menu for an additional price including 20 tokens and Ballocity play.

My brother, sister, and me all got the Super Kids Menu. Owen and Olivia got French Bread Pizzas, while I got Spaghetti & Meatballs.

While we waited for our food, we played in the arcade and Ballocity. The arcade had games like Big Bass, Connect Four, Skeeball, and Toy Soldier. Ballocity wasn't a ball pit, like my dad suspected, but a challenging game where you use balls to shoot targets and each other. There's also a slide, punching bags, a zip line, and a maze of fun obstacles.

Our food took awhile to come but we didn't mind because we were having so much fun! Finally, it came, and I thought my Spaghetti & Meatballs were delicious! The meatballs were juicy and tender, and the sauce tasted like it was homemade!

I give ***** stars for food and ***** stars for kid friendliness.

I would really like to come back here, whether it is when I'm still a kid, or with my kids when I grow up(if I have kids, that is). Well, that's all. Bye!
