PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

No one loves a baked potato more than the lovely Dee Price. This lady wants to get you "loaded" on her loaded baked potatoes.

She fills them with jerk chicken, pulled pork, brisket, turkey, buffalo chicken. You name it, she does it at The Loaded Baked Potato at 16th Street and Southern Avenue.

Price was raised in the kitchen,cooking with her grandmother as a little girl. She would grow up to have a catering company and then go into real estate. When the economy crashed, she started looking around for what was next and that's when she went back to her original love -- cooking.

She loves good hearty comfort food and she fills her restaurant with laughter and love. Expect a hug when you meet "Miss Dee." I have a feeling she doesn't meet a stranger.  

We tried her turkey stuffed potato (think Thanksgiving dinner), the brisket potato and the buffalo chicken. Delish! But be sure to save room for dessert! She has a sweet potato cheesecake and sweet potato bowls that you have to try!  

As Dee would tell you, "It's a great day to get loaded at The Loaded Potato!"

The Loaded Potato is celebrating its anniversary this Saturday, Nov. 21. Dee will be giving out samples and freebies. Tell her I sent you!
