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 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.

I am normally rather picky about my cook books. I love to cook and I own a rather big collection of cook books.

I like to cook recipes with easy to find ingredients and recipes that are some what simple.

This book was a pleasant surprise but it delivered!

I just made the Chili's Que-so Clone Recipe last night and it made a very big batch of chili cheese dip and indeed it tasted just like the Chili's appetizer that I order so frequently at the restaurant! Just from making that one recipe this book has already payed for itself!

I liked it so much I went ahead and ordered his Top Secret Recipes 3 and the Top Secret Recipes Unlocked because there are a few recipes in those books that I order frequently at the restaurant such as the "great balls of fire" from Joe's Crab Shack and the Little Ceaser's Crazy Bread!

Defiantly try out this book! It is worth it!!!

I would recommend going to his website before you purchase any of the books because it lets you look at the table of contents inside of the book to see what restaurant recipes are included!

I went to a party last night and brought the (Top Secret Recipes version of)Chevy's Chili Con Queso, wondering if it would be substantially better (and worth the effort)than simply adding the standard can of Rotel to melted Velveeta. Everyone at the party raved about the queso (so worth it!) and I also made the (TSR version of)Chevy's Sweet Corn Tomalito. OK, even MEN came up to me and told me how much they loved that one! All the recipes are easy to make, and just as easy to triple the recipe(s)which was my case. When it comes to book reviews, it kind of makes me angry when I read less-than-great reviews by people that haven't even tried the recipes yet, are simply disappointed because they "didn't get to read the recipe index beforehand" (visit a bookstore then) or the recipes "don't sound good" (see previous suggestion).COME ON! For the small price you'll pay for this book, there are over 150 recipes, most of which you'll definitely want to try. Would't it be worth it to hear, "This is the best queso I've ever had!" You bet it was. Bravo, Todd. You made me look GREAT. I'm off to make the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits for my son...

I love this book. There are several recipes that I am so glad to have. One of may favorites is the Chicken Scampi from Olive Garden. My daughter has prepared this recipe for me 2 times now and because I liked it so much, I purchased the book.

My fiance loves to go to restaurants, but he also loves to experiment with cooking new and exciting recipes. This was the perfect gift! We work on the cooking together and produce darn-near close to what we have tasted in restaurants before but with added fun and a lot less money. We can't wait to unveil some new stuff when everyone comes over for game night! Great purchase and totally fun.
