Now I know what you're thinking... You think I've gone mad. How could I be saying that a gas station's food is incredible. Well this isn't any normal gas station food, this is Shell's chicken strips. They are cheap, and they are good!

This Shell station is a quick walk from the our station, and someone in the building told me about the chicken. Long story short I fell in love!

You may not believe me and that's fine, but this chicken is the perfect mix of not too hard and not too soft. Also look how much you get! All that for just about $5! You're not finding that anywhere.


I walk down to this spot about once a week for lunch, and the people working there are always so nice.


While Brady street gets a bad wrap I do think there are a lot of hidden treasures on it if you look hard enough, and for some reason one of those treasures is the chicken at this Shell station. (Maybe the others as well, I haven't tried theirs yet.)


While their food isn't the absolute best I've ever had, it is the best I've ever had for that price! When I asked how they made it a nice employee said,

"Oh um we fry it."

And they do a great job with that!

I'm sure many of you will refuse to believe me, but next time you're in the area just give it a try, you may just fall in love.

Hotel Davenport Demolition

The Hotel Davenport is located at 5202 Brady St. and was reportedly built in the early 1970s. Earlier this year it was decided that this hotel was no longer set to have guests.

According to the Quad Cities times, the Davenport hotel has faced a number of fires, along with safety and health code violations. This has led to the call for its demolition. I've driven past it many times and have seen that the building had clearly began to deteriorate.

It was scheduled for demolition earlier this year, and said demolition began in April. Many involved in this project are excited to see what the future holds for this lot in Davenport.

I drive past this spot every day for work, and over the last month have snagged some pictures of the demolition.

Million Dollar Quad Cities Home vs Million Dollar Los Angeles Home

We all know the joke about how much houses cost in LA. I decided that it would be fun to look at a million dollar home in LA and compare that to a million dollar home right here in the Quad Cities.
Here are the two spot we are comparing:
12513 Walsh Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90066
Cost: $1,195,000
984 sqft | 3 Bed | 2 Bath


901 46th Street Dr, Moline, IL 61265
Cost: $995,000
15,291 sqft | 6 Bed | 11 Bath

Clearly one is a bit bigger than the other.
