Alamo Steak House Pigeon Forge, TN

I’m just not a big fan. I’d give them probably 3.5-4 stars. Honestly, I was so upset because their prices online do not reflect the prices of their actual menu. It’s like double the cost. Only kids can order off the kids menu. Normally I don’t complain much about this, because there’s something at least comparable on the regular menu. Not here. Their steaks were all big. I couldn’t eat all of that. Cooper and I could have just shared a cheeseburger. This is the cheeseburger he got. It was ONE POUND. Why does one need a one pound cheeseburger? I didn’t get it! I got some French onion soup, because it’s my favorite soup. Anytime I’m at a restaurant and they have it, I must buy it. It was pretty good, but the richness was so much and there was nothing to cut through that richness. I couldn’t finish it, because I couldn’t tolerate that richness. I ate about half of it. If it had something to freshen up with, I think the soup would have been the bomb. I had a kids steak, because it’s what Coop ordered, and then I ended up eating it, because the cheeseburger looked better to him I guess. Anyway the steak had been brined for too long. They had horrible texture. Coop did LOVE the cheeseburger and fries though. For 3 people we paid 95.00. I almost died. It was just too much. Our waiter refused to come by our table regularly. He made me feel uncomfortable. The waiter aside, because he didn’t matter; I will not go back again. It’s just too expensive for my blood for blah food.

Hollywood Star Car Museum

We really liked this adventure. We went to the Hollywood Star Car Museum in Gatlinburg, TN. We really enjoyed our trip. The guys were able to get their pictures made in the cars. I didn’t really feel like it. It was a rough day for me. I was surprised I was able to even make it through the museum, BUT I did…and I enjoyed the moments with my family. To start…I really like the fact that the parking area is literally across the street. If you don’t know Gatlinburg, it’s a walking town. You have two sides of town full of shops and stuff and you walk the distance. The downfall of the parking garage is it’s expensive if you aren’t staying all day. That isn’t a reflection of the car museum though. I’ll say I wasn’t very happy with the one front worker guy. He was a little rude to my son. He walked up to a car and was like Dad look….and was excited. The guy was like Don’t touch that. It was his tone that bothered me. We didn’t let it stop us; we went inside anyway. It’s two floors of cars. Some are the original, some are not. at the end we realized to the side they had this small little area you could buy a few things. They had cars and tshirts, water bottles, and you could get your picture made inside a car. Coop had his done in the car from Smokey and the Bandit. Hubby had his in the Beach Boys car. The guy was a little short, as he was the same one from the beginning when we arrived. When we were leaving there was an older man at the area that you pay to enter. He was awesome. My husband and kid sat there and chatted with him for a good 10-15 minutes. We really loved it. I’m really going to sound like a crazy person here, but I’ve got to say it. Out of every place we went while there, they had the most clean bathroom I’ve ever seen. It was SPOTLESS. That really bumped my mood. I hate going to a bathroom and have to worry you’ll walk out with toilet paper or paper towel on your shoe, because no one cleaned it in forever. LOL! Go on to Gatlinburg, TN and enjoy some cars!
