here's what people are saying about whistle stop...
"While the food and drinks were great, I got more out of them by hearing the "behind the scenes" stories. That made it more than simply eating; it helped to create a fuller experience, if you will."
"Loved the general feel of it...I had been to 3 out of 4 of the locations, however it made the visit seem special."
"I really liked the history of either the venue or the dishes."
"Even though I had been to all of those restaurants before, I ate and drank things I would never ordinarily order."
"Mmmm, mmmm good!"
"I learned of new restaurants and of new dishes at restaurants I frequent."
