Coke Zero

Posted by LOTGK on May 10, 2008

coke zero has nothing

Coke Zero Point Of Purchase At It’s Best

(Pay no attention to the sexy blond model wearing nothing but the Coca-Cola Zero logo in body paint)

Coca-cola has introduced yet another diet soda product to their long list of soft drinks. Coke Zero, being a diet soda, has zero calories, (Hence the name) zero total fat, zero total carbs, zero protein, zero sugar, and 40 mg of sodium which is 2% daily intake. I will hazard a guess and say that most diet soda’s claim the same low calorie intake. But Coke Zero separates itself from all the others for one reason.


I have tried many diet pops in my time and all of them left me not wanting for more. The only diet pop that is tolerable is Diet Dr. Pepper. (I ordered a Dr. Diet Pepper at a restaurant once and my son and wife almost fell over laughing at my mistake) All the other ones have such a bitter taste and a nasty after taste. I think these diet pops can be used as diesel fuel in a pinch.

Coke Zero however, as the commercials tout, it does taste a hell of a lot like Cokes flag ship brand cola, Coca-Cola Classic. Now hold on a minute! I didn’t say it tasted exactly like Classic, but very close.

I was truly skeptical and I had to find out for myself if the Coke commercials were lying or not. I went to the local gas station, fueled up and went inside and purchased a 20 ounce size plastic bottle of Coke Zero. The cost was 99 cents, right in line with Classic, same price. (I mention this for a few years back, Coca-Cola introduced Coke C2, half the calorie soda but 50% more in cost. A 20 ounce bottle was $1.49 compared to 99 cents.)

coke zero diet pop

I took the bottle of Coke Zero home and placed it in the fridge to get it ice cold. (Nothing better than an ice cold pop) A couple hours later, it was time to test the new Coke Zero.

I twisted the cap off and it fizzled just like Coke Classic which was a good sign. Then I went for it and took a big guzzle. Zero had that full bodied taste that did not disappoint. If I didn’t already know, I would swear it wasn’t a diet soda. After taste? Forgetaboutit! Absolutely none. The first sip left me wanting more. I savored the rest of the bottle and each sip was as good as the last.

Coke Zero is the best diet soda on the market today and the Grassy Knoll Institute awards 5 out of 5 shots and highly recommends Coca-Cola Zero for a refreshing thirst quencher.

Peddler Steakhouse

Posted by LOTGK on January 22, 2008

peddler salad bar
The Peddler Steak House

The best steak house in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is the Peddler hands down.

Yes, I know the Peddler has already been critiqued, but the steak was so good, I had to do it again. I began with the salad, one you make yourself from the salad bar down stairs. Notice the huge chunks of ham and hard boiled egg halves plus real bacon, not those cheap baco bits.

peddler steak house filet mignon

The Peddler is famous for steak, so of course I ordered the filet mignon. And of course it was prepared perfectly and tasted great. One of the best steaks I have ever had.

The only setback for the Peddler is that it is so popular that it is always crowded. Always. A two hour wait time is the average to get a seat. Unless you know the system. And that is to go and sit at the bar lounge to wait for your table. There are tables in the lounge and it is not common knowledge but, you can eat dinner right there. And there is no waiting.

The cost is around $45.00 without tip but you get a fabulous salad, great steak, big ass baked potato, hot fresh rolls with butter, and the soft drink, (Coke) of your choice.

Yes, the Grassy Knoll Institute awards 4.25 out of 5 shots to the Peddler and recommends the steak house for dinner.

Smoky Mountain Brewery And Restaurant

Posted by LOTGK on December 27, 2007

Gatlinburg, Tennessee has literally dozens of fabulous restaurants to choose from and the Smoky Mountain Brewery and Restaurant is an excellent choice.

The Brewery is of course a micro brewery that has hundreds of brands of beer and spirits but I was there for the food. And the Brewery did not disappoint.

Another nice feature were the many TV sets tuned to all the NFL games and the angles were perfect. Any game we wanted to watch were in eye shot.

After getting seated, the place was packed, but we only waited about 20 minutes, I ordered the Chicken Parmigiana with a side of spaghetti. Toasted garlic bread was also part of the meal.The chicken was excellent, hot, juicy, spicy, and a hearty portion. The spaghetti, supposedly a side order, was huge and delicious. The garlic bread was hot and sealed the deal. The entire meal was almost perfect, including the service, which was fast, courteous, and correct.

The price was very reasonable, around 18 dollars without tip. The Grassy Knoll Institute awards 4.5 shots out of 5 and recommends Smoky Mountain Brewery for dinner.

PS: This is also the restaurant where I stapled up my dollar bill with my LOTGK logo enblazoned on it.

Michael’s Gourmet Restaurant, Las Vegas

Posted by LOTGK on December 11, 2007

I had the good fortune to dine at Michael’s restaurant housed in the Barbary Coast hotel and casino, Las vegas, Nevada before it closed. News is that Michael’s will be opening soon in a new location. I hope they maintain the same excellence in service, ambiance, and cuisine.

Michael’s was a small intimate restaurant that oozed old style Las Vegas decorated with plush decor and high back wrap around chairs and a stained glass ceiling, and chandeliers hanging over every table. I don’t think there were 50 seats, not tables, seats in the entire restaurant.As we waited for our order to be taken, an appetizer tray was placed on our table full of enticing vegetables. I must have had at least a dozen green olives. And they were huge. And delicious.

Although Michael’s was well known for it’s imported Dover Sole, I chose of course the Filet Mignon. An atomic sized baked potato and stuffed tomato accompanied the filet. It was a very wise decision. The filet was huge, juicy, tender, and delicious. It was cooked exactly as ordered.

After dinner, a dessert tray was presented with many delectable treats. I opted for just one enormous multi chocolate flavored strawberry.

A fruit tray followed of which I sampled the several varieties of grapes.The cost, well, let’s put it at very expensive. Let’s just say around $100 per person. The service was excellent, and the filet was delicious. The Grassy Knoll Institute awards 4.75 shots out of 5 with a quarter point deducted for cost and recommends Michael’s restaurant when they reopen in the near future at a new location.

Eddie’s Grill Geneva

Posted by LOTGK on December 10, 2007

Eddie’s Grill at Geneva on the Lake is a favorite summer spot famous for it’s burgers, hot dogs, and fries all served in a old fashioned sock hop diner atmosphere. Eddie’s also serves a great pizza just like the one above.

We placed our order and received a call number and was told it would be about 10 minutes. The timing was just about perfect and we took the pizza and found ourselves a booth inside Eddie’s.

The large plain cheese pizza cost $10.00 and was very well cooked. The crust was crunchy, the cheese melted but not burned, and the sauce zesty. Each slice was cut all the way through for easy separation of each slice. And it tasted great.

The Grassy Knoll Institute awards 4.5 shots out of 5 and recommends Eddie’s Grill pizza for lunch or dinner.
