Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Wilbur, who's made a small cookbook empire deconstructing chain restaurant favorites, here introduces 150 new recipes from such well-loved eateries as The Cheesecake Factory, Chili's, Outback Steakhouse and Waffle House. Adopting a wily, covert-agent tone when discussing his research ("A couple plane rides, a bit of driving, some walking and a stumble or two later, I had a cooler full of Houston's goodies procured safely back at the underground lab"), and brings infectious enthusiasm for each dish to his insider-y recipe intros. The results are, for the most part, winning: Houston's Honey-Lime Vinaigrette is a refreshing blend of honey, citrus, and mustard; IHOP Harvest Grain 'n Nut Pancakes are crunchy and wholesome; and Red Lobster's tasty Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Shrimp comes with an addictive cilantro-ranch dipping sauce. But perhaps the most useful aspect of this cookbook is that it allows home cooks to lighten up their favorite artery-clogging dine-out dishes. Have a hankering for P.F. Chang's Spare Ribs but don't feel like consuming a cup of light corn syrup or four cups of vegetable oil? A quick study of the recipe reveals myriad ways to make the dish more simple, healthful and enjoyable right at home.

I own this book. Well actually, I found out that I owned this book after I bought it. This book is exactly the same as the "Top Secret Recipes Super Secret Restaurant Collection" that is sold by QVC. Yeah there are a couple more recipes, like 8 in a book of hundreds, but there was nothing on his web page or anything to tell me that. I felt kinda screwed. Luckily I bought it at Borders and could take it back when I found out I had been hosed. He hyped this book up on his website, and didn't even tell he loyal fans what he was doing. He has great recipes and stuff, and I literally own all his books, but I just wanted to let anyone else who might have the QVC book know that this one is just a reprint so they dont get hosed....

This recipe book is simply fantastic and I highly recommend it! Making your favorite restaurant dishes at home is a great way to save money! "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2" is one of many in a series and a reprint of TSR's "Super Secret Restaurant Collection" which was previously sold on QVC as noted on the title page of the book. But since I didn't have that edition I bought this one and absolutely love it!!! And by the way, the Top Secret Recipes Version of Chili's Southwestern Eggrolls is absolutely wonderful, we made them for my husband for Father's Day and they were a huge hit! Thank you for this wonderful recipe book! - Michelle Jones, Founder and Editor of BetterBudgeting.com

I bought this book b/c I love all of his other books. This one just seemed like a bunch of recipes that I already have. I subscribe to the weekly recipes from the website, and get better recipes that way. I've already given this book to someone who didn't have any of this books yet. Not that impressed....

Took my sister to Applebee's and she tried their Fiesta Lime Chicken....loved it.....Fiesta Lime Chicken has been copyrighted by Applebee's and the name can't be used by others.....but if you like that dish.....and buy this book....you won't be disappoined. Bought a book for each of us.......other favorite recipes in here too.....easy and fun to make.

Sure there are a few of these on the website, but get it for the ones that are not! My wife and I have been digging into these jewels just after the holidays when we have people over and we have them lickin' the plates. And pretty easy to cook from to boot. Relish!

The book is great and the recipes are not only fun to make but taste amazing. For the price of the book and the amount of recipes, it's a steal. I have never written a review but after reading the one from Melissa, I had to write. You could get the recipes from their website, if you want to pay an individual price. As for finding "clones" good luck, those are a hit and miss, mostly miss.

I received a cookbook similar to this one about a year ago. My friends and family RAVED about the recipes -- it's as good as going to the restaurant! They raved so much, that I had to BUY this cookbook for friends, just to keep them from constantly borrowing MY book!

Some recipes are more complex than others, but generally, the ingredients are readily available and the instructions are easy to follow. So far, our favorites are The Cheesecake Factory's Avocado Egg Rolls, Chilis Chicken Tortilla Soup, and PF Chang's Lettuce Wraps. So far, we haven't made a recipe yet that doesn't please.
