    We have a wide variety of restaurants in the area that are family owned. Those are my personal favorite places to eat. Who doesn't want a little love put into their meals? Most places offer multiple drink and food specials which help with the cost.
    Review Briarwood
    We have a lot of seasonal allergy issues. The winter have been long, cold and hard to deal with. The summers seem to be getting hotter.
    I live in a great area, that is surrounded by a lot of stores. I normally do not have to drive more than 15 minutes to get anywhere in the city.
