I've never tried Sbarro, so won't be missing anything. Food joints come and go at the speed of sound at malls.

Rodizio is a Brazilian style restaurant. The salad area is buffet style but the meats and roasted veggies are brought to you. Fedor Tyiutin ( blue jackets and Russian team) can put away some brisket and strip steak. After hockey he can go into competitive eating.

If I have to go to a store in a mall, I park right in front of that store and leave by the same door...no mall walking....

Never been there...won't miss it.
Seems to be the consensus.

The only fast-food I will eat is Chick-fil-A.
No buffets. Ever.

Rodizio's is not a buffet. Jist selve.serve salads. Better quality meat than Texas de Brazil.

I go to Tuttle Crossing mall quite often, but the only thing I hit there is Starbucks. Gloria Jean's was a killer coffe shop. I was quite pissed when they left.

They had one of these pizza shops in Westland mall(back when it was decent). However, I thought the pizza was bland and only fit to take your appetite away.

They still have some on the Ohio turnpike. I don't know what the food is like now, but in the early 90's they were pretty good.

Agreed. I used to always look forward to having a slice at the mall. Stupid to close them - they should have sold them to franchisees.

My favorite was the fettuccine alfredo. They gave a very good portion that filled me up for pretty cheap. I spent quite a bit of time on that turnpike from 1991 to1996.

I usually got me a 'Hot Sam pretzel'. They had a good strawberry sauce which oddly went great together.

That was another one, though Aunt Annie's are far better.

I think that's the one who had hot-dogs inside them(Tuttle mall). Yeah, they were a lot better. Softer, why I think so.
