Romano’s Macaroni Grill Review

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Review

Hubby and I went to Romano’s Macaroni Grill the other night. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. While it is not terrible, it just is not as consistently good as it used to be. I do like that they have been changing up the menu with each season – it is nice to have some variety and they do keep a few of the … Continue Reading →
