BEST VALUE For a delicious meal with enough carbs and calories for an entire day, the country fried steak with eggs, biscuits, grits, and gravy at Omar's Hi-Way Chef in Tucson cannot be beat. Read my full review of Omar's Hi-Way Chef.
BEST BURGER The Brian Burger at Emma Jean's Holland Burger in Victorville, California is more than just a hamburger; it's also partly a grilled cheese sandwich. It's cooked to order and served on slices of thick cheese toast. Read my full review of Emma Jean's Holland Burger.
BIGGEST SURPRISE Without a doubt, the vegan sandwich at Cornbread Cafe in Eugene, Oregon threw me the biggest surprise of anything I ate in 2014. I guess I was going in with low expectations, but the Eugenewich is a great sandwich by any standard. Delicious, satisfying, and like nothing I had ever eaten before.
