Dave Is Still Writing But. . . .

13 01 2009

I haven’t been frequenting many good cheap eats lately so you won’t see many new posts.

I’m going to leave this site up and will still update it as I find out about changes in the restaurants.

If you want to see what I am writing about, check out David Smith Travels.

Where is Dave?

7 04 2008

Ok, why haven’t I posted lately?

3 big reasons:

  1. Lack of Time: I’m a full time pastor, Dad, Husband, homeowner, and soccer coach. Needless to say, that doesn’t leave me much free time!
  2. Lack of finding good cheap eats: I live in the burbs now. It’s the land of chains and second class class cheap food.
  3. Lack of Traveling: I’m working full time now which means I don’t get 2 weeks off every 10 weeks and a summer off. I do have a restaurant in Nashville and Asheville to write about and a trip planned to California in June so there is some hope!

In the meantime, enjoy restaurants from the past!

And the weekly winners are. . .

This week there were two search terms that you used to find Dave’s Cheap Eats far and away more than any other. But before we get to that, here is a sampling of some of the odder search terms that lead folks to Dave’s Cheap Eats:

“Who is adriana’s date on the hills?”

“Playground size wooden trains in NC”

“How to eat high class” (there is something seriously wrong with the search algorithim that brought up Dave’s Cheap Eats!)

And my personal favorite. . . . (no, I am not making this up) . . . .

“Stingy Little Dork”

Now, on to the two big search terms:

“New York City Cheap Eats” slipped to number two this week. Do you know why? Because all the stage hands are back at work now so they don’t need cheap eats anymore!

And our top search term? Shooting up from #3 last week, is “Parkers Barbeque.” Here’s to pulled pork and hush puppies!

What are you looking for?

This is a new weekly (maybe) post where I highlight what you’ve been searching for, based on the top searches and page hits, over the last week. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

How To Eat

15 11 2007

This site almost exclusively discusses the best in Cheap Eats, however, that posses some problems. For the uninitiated that are used to full service and high class restaurants its like a guy from New Jersey trying to pump his own gas for the first time-scary, difficult, and messy. However, hope is not lost. ACommonLoon from the Thorntree Message board at LonelyPlanet.com has posted a useful guide for eating at a New York City Diner. Thanks ACommonLoon!

Update Coming Soon!!!

14 06 2007

Ok, so it’s been a while since I posted any updates. Honestly, I hadn’t been to any good cheap restaurants lately. Well, I just got back from a trip to Virginia and North Carolina and I’ve got some great updates including a breakfast place on the Outer Banks and some great Mexican road food near the Virginia/West Virginia border.

Even better, I will be moving to the Nashville area soon. Sorry to all my St. Louis afficonados but I will be leaving the Gateway City for the Music City. This means lots of new restaurants coming soon!

Where is Dave?

That’s an excellent question. I’m glad you asked. It’s been a combination of several-school, trip planning, and kid raising. Each one of these trumps blog writing. So where am I?

 I’m here!

I’m back now and have a little catching up to do. Stay tunned for new posts!
