  • Ringo Kid, brother you just said the right words. Pecan pie. My father used to make us go out and pick up pecans from the trees we had in the back yard. My aunt would use those fresh pecans and make the best pie. I only have the option of the frozen type up here in the Oregon wilderness, but every once in a while we will find one in a restaurant. I think you and I could do some eatin if we get the chance. Ethan, I'm not sure what treacle sponge and custard is, but I'm willing to give anything a try.

    Hi Bopoppa, i'd definately look forward to doing that! Corpus Christi has many great places to eat at here.

    A few examples:

    U&I Restaurant (which is owned by Greeks) Everything I ever had there was no less than excellent--dessert included.

    Montana Mikes another excelelnt place ane now one of my most favorite of new restaurants. M.M has been here now I think a full year.

    Cracker Barrel, my absolute favorite place in town. Not kidding, I have probably eaten there at least 1,000 times in the past 10 years. I have only been disappointed eating there once--which was on Thanksgiving about 2 years ago.

    Taste of Texas, one of many great steakhouses in town. Always a great place to go to.

    Texas Roadhouse, another great steakhouse.

    Longhorn Steak & Ale, another Greek owned restaurant, and another great place to eat. I have never been unsatisfied with a meal from them.

    Longhorn Steakhouse (not affiliated with the one named above) used to be excellent, but has gone a bit downhill--tho--still not too bad of a place to eat at. You HAVE to try their Cucumber Sauce--man that stuff is delicious & fattening.

    Another place I frequent at least 2-4 times a month is Furr's Cafeteria. The Furrs here in C.C. is excellent and cannot be compared to other Furrs Cafeterias. Also, they have an added benefit. I know three of the waitresses there very well and I get my weekly hugs from all three of them everytime I go there. And besides, all three of them are very pretty Senoritas (SP?)

    Now if you want good Hamburgers in this town, you have to go to Wal-Bangers. Since we no longer have a Bennegans, Wal-bangers is THE place in town to go to for hamburgers.

    Best Pizza place in town used to be Dentoni's but they closed. Now if you want a decently good pizza, you have to go to Papa John's.

    Floyd's used to be the best place in town for a Chickenfried Steak, then went downhill for a few years but, I heard they were making an impressive comeback.

    Bubba's Icehouse used to be a great place as well but kept changing hands. The first owner ran a great place but, sold out to some Mexican fellow who almost ruined the business. Luckily, he sold it to some lady who has (happily) turned that place around and is doing really well.

    Want a great breakfast, the best two places in town are: (believe it or not) Golden Corral and IHOP.

    Italian:

    My favorite place in town is the Olive Garden.

    Chinese:

    My favorite place in town is: Mandarin Gardens.

    I know it looks like we eat out all the time here but, it really aint the case. We just go to a different one until we run out of them and then start over.

    Oh and, the best place to buy Cake from in town is a place called: Janet's Cakery.

    The best actual Bakery in town is: Ayers (Dixie Cream) Bakery. They have the best Doughnuts one will ever eat. They are way better than Dunkin' Doughnuts is no longer in the area but I remember their s were pretty good--though the last time I ate there was in Kingsville and I was probably about 6 years odl--well-over 30 years ago., Krispy Kreme (which I cannot stand, I ate there once a few months after they first opened here) as well as Shipleys (which is alot like Krispy Kreme) as their Doughnuts to me taste like eating cake for breakfast.

  • Hey Keith, it looks delicious. The recipes sure makes for a tasty treat, and I have to say, I've never heard of steaming a dessert before. I think everyone will appreciate that link.:present: Good stuff. I will try it as soon as I get a chance. The article said it was a simple task, but usually the simple ones turn out the most wicked.
    Ringo, hey brother, do you ever eat at home?:stunned: I tell you, I like to eat at Furrs as well. Furrs and Luby's are getting harder to find and are non-existent up here. I guess if we lose touch I could always hang out at the Cracker Barrel to find ya. So many good restaurants down home. There isn't a lack of them here, just a different menu. NOW, about them senoritas!! :wink_smile: They sure make the food taste better don't they? I wish I could have a few of them hugs, but my senorita wife would take it to me. Hot blooded, mean-tempered,jealous....... Gotta love em. If I ever get to settle down, I'll throw on some steaks on the grill, sit back and enjoy some beer and ceviche.

  • I thought only roosters had those :biggrin:!

    Now . . . speaking of dessert . . . my wife makes something called "Dirt Cake" and it is served from a flower pot and looks like real potting soil on the top, but boy is it good!! Creamy and chocolatey - yum, yum!! She has been known to garnish it with gummy worms for effect.

    Chester :newyear:



    It might be hard to tell if they come from any particular animal but what ever they cook them in is yummy!!!

  • Recently my wife and I have been indulging in Dairy Queen's Chicken Strip Baskets, which she loves a lot. Since she can't get out, it's an alternative to home cooking and a change of pace. Very tasty:pizza: !

  • Carl,

    We had a conversation about steaks, last year,
    and that big, big, one you promised me!!!
    Don't start again, you make me hungry!!!



    Hi Keith, can't you see that im trying to get you to sell your house and move your family to Texas! :hyper: where the stars at night, are big and bright (clap clap clap) deep in the heart of Texas. :russia: Also, I echo what Jay said about Dairy Queen--I love that place. Man, their ice cream is so darn gooooooooooooood. Their chicken strips are great but I still favor the ones from Bennegan's much more. Their Hunger-busters ARE so good. I normally do not think of D.Q. for burgers though because we habe Wal-Bangers, Whataburger, Wendy's and (sic) McDonalds within about 5 minutes walking distance from my flat.

    Hi Bo, sometimes it does not seem so. As a matter of fact, today we ate lunch at Kentucky Fried Chicken. My nextdoor neighbor needed to run around doing some medical stuff and I was not busy so we took my car out and did the chores. I needed to do some banking and after that, it was suggested we go munch some lunch. It was a bit of a rip-off though, they were out of all my favorite soda flavors--like Dr. Pepper (sadly they don't have Rootbeer) so I had to settle for Diet Mountain Dew which makes one want to shout out in extreme pain.

    Furrs is great but here Luby's isn't a very good place. Last time I ate at one here was about 5 years ago. Cracker Barrel will never fall out of favor for me--love the place too darn much ;-))

    Those Senoritas sure do make the dishes taste much spicier--especially when I get my hugs from the two Cindy's. And when I went there last Friday (my usual day for Furrs) I got kisses from two of them after I had given them both some Chocolates for Valentines Day. I still had some lipstick on my cheek hours later from Cindy #1 when I got home. :wub: You are correct, those spicy women of American-Mexican heritage, sure do have tempers but on the good side of things, they can sure "rock" your world as well. Another thing, if one has an ego, being with these three lovely ladies can sure bring up ones morale as well.

    Did I ever tell you the one about the 7 pretty blondes and Brunettes that I took out to lunch one time? It made a group of Sailors wonder what the heck I had going for me.

  • When I first ever visited the States many years ago, I always considered
    Dairy Queen's as the best, Great burgers, and my first experience
    of Ice Cream Sodas, if that what you still call them


    Carl, It might be good idea, to move to Texas,
    can you start arranging the immigration papers..
    Mmmmm, really need one of your steaks!!!

    Best Wishes

  • Hell, Keith, you don't need papers - just do like the rest of our southern "neighbors" do and sneak across the border.


    Jim,


    I'd do that, but got a bit of problem,
    with the water in between!!
    Unlike some folks I can't walk on it!!!

    Best Wishes

  • Hi Keith, do as Stumpy suggested and just sneak across the border between South Texas and Mexico. You do not have to worry about swimming at all because more often than not, the so called river--is completely dry for miles around. In some places a bit further away from the Gulf of Mexico, you might get your shoes wet and in others, you might be in water a few feet deep. Don't try crossing at Big Bend National Park. There you will have to climb up steep cliffs, worry about Rattlers and Black and Brown Bears.

    Call me when you make it here because I will let you and the fam, stay at my flat till we can get you a place. Only bad thing about my place is that its only a 1 bedroom flat and not much privacy. ;-D

  • Well you People have gone and Done It Again !



    So I ground up a 1 lb. of the Sirloin Beef from the 1/2 Side of Beef that the Hopi Tribe gave me, that I had Frozen up and am going to have One Big Sirloin Hamberger on one of those Big Onion Buns, with Mustard, Onion and Pickles.



    Cooked up on my Brand New "George Foreman, Lean Mean Fat Grilling Machine" that my Children gave me for X-Mass, and a Big Bunch of Western Sour Dough "Fried Onion Rings."
    :pizza:



    I might even have a small bowl of "Duke's Chili" on the Side!!!
    :hyper:

  • I see you put the proper condiment on your hamburger, Bill. I just cannot understand those who prefer mayonnaise to mustard on hamburgers. I also onions, pickles and even tomatoes but can do without the lettuce.
