Dr. Gourmet's Food Reviews

While it's best and healthiest to make your own foods, at Dr. Gourmet we realize that sometimes you just can't make it into the kitchen to cook. Dr. Gourmet has reviewed some common convenience foods, ingredients, and restaurant selections so that you know what's worth eating - and what's not.

A brand's appearance here should not be construed as an endorsement of that brand or company.

Latest review: Introducing Main Street Kitchen

This week we have another altogether new (to us) company: Main Street Kitchen. At first this company was a bit of a mystery: we bought two varieties for $1.25 each at our local Winn-Dixie, brought them to Dr. Gourmet Headquarters, and as usual did an internet search on the company to find out more about them.


This company does not have a website, although we found at least three brick-and-mortar restaurants named "Main Street Kitchen" - none of which are affiliated with a frozen food brand. The products themselves can be found online through Instacart at Albertson's and Safeway grocery stores, so presumably they're available at those grocery stores, if you have them near you. Fettuccine Alfredo with Broccoli and Creamy Chicken Rigatoni »
