Branch BBQ in Wells Branch: A Local Secret?

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Recently I met the spouse for a quick lunch, and we were planning to eat pho at one of our local favorites. However, Mai Lien was closed for the day (not permanently, thank goodness!), so we were at a bit of a loose end. Just down the […]

Salt Lick BBQ in Round Rock: More Than Finger-Licking Good

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Way back on Fat Tuesday, the bride and I headed out to get, well, fat. I mean, there’s no way you gain any weight during Lent, right? Besides, it’s a tradition. And who are we to buck tradition?

We had a problem, though; what to eat? We’d normally […]

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Round Rock: Great Meat; As For the Rest…

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I was out and about the other day, for the first time in a while, and it happened to be at about time for an early dinner. I was starving, having had an apple and some crackers for lunch. As I drove along the front of a […]

Elgin’s Southside Market: Great Smoked Meats

We were tired and hungry. Cruising down U.S. 290 towards home. All I wanted was a bed, after 3½ hours driving, then 8 hours in the park, then another 3+ hours heading home. The crew had another idea, though:

“Honey, can we stop for some food?”

I growled. They insisted:

“But we’re almost to Elgin, and they’ve […]

Lazy Sunday in Seguin

Not a lot happening today. There’s a bazaar and auction in town at the Catholic church, so I’m sure we’ll be going in there for a while. Hopefully wifeyperson doesn’t get her spend gland going too strongly. (Don’t tell her I said that.) It’ll be well over 100° F today; when will the heat […]

BBQ Joint Gets “Carcass Removal” Listing, Heads to Court

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…

Although the exact details aren’t clear yet (and will be sorted out in court), it appears that Bar 3 BBQ in Montana […]

Follies: Barbeque That Goes Where You Go, All Day Long

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

In a world full of phony commodities, including fake car passengers (beat the HOV lane), impostor jeans (eat anything, they’ll fit), sham camisoles (cleavage control, dontcha know), and even fictionalized basketball player names (Whirled Peas??), it’s nice to know that Real Products for Real Men […]

Smoky Heaven in Round Rock: Johnny T’s BBQ

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I recently found a real gem of a joint in Round Rock. I’d been by it maybe 30 times this year already, and I’ve known it was there for some time. I’ve eaten at the Sonic next door, had my car washed down the block, and […]
