VooDoo BBQ & Grill: Their HooDoo’s Pretty Good, Actually

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Sadly, this restaurant has closed.

Sometime we here in Texas kid about that foreign country to our East, Louisiana. However, when it comes to food, there’s very little joking goes on, either place! Both regions can lay claim to distinctive styles and flavors, even within the realm of […]

Branch BBQ in Wells Branch: A Local Secret?

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

“Honey, can we stop for some food?”

I growled. They insisted:

In this edition of Follies Extra we see that while some salespeople have too great a sense of humor, some restaurateurs have none at all; otherwise this story might have turned out differently…

Here’s to a Safe Labor Day (and Fewer Fires)

From all the Elves here at the Chile Underground, we wish you a safe and enjoyable Labor Day holiday. We know that not everybody’s getting to enjoy their day, or even be safe, thanks to all the fires here in central Texas. (A good friend lost a house to the Bastrop fire. We’re thinking of […]
