My family loves good food! Eating out was like a sport in our house. My mother is also a great cook. Celebrations up until I was 10 were at a place called the PX in Flint, MI. Awesome ribs, family style. Every time we went there was always a bunch of people my parents knew. It had a sense of community for a restaurant. After age 10 we moved to Orange County, and the special restaurant we celebrated at was Yen Ching, Chinese restaurant in Orange. Fantastic place.
