    Big Boys Barbecue: Texas BBQ at its best in Sweetwater, TX

    by Phildy Written Sep 17, 2014

    This little hole-in-the-wall tin shed BBQ joint is situated in Sweetwater, TX. We came across it by doing a search on our cell phone for nearest BBQ. Upon arriving at 11:30am there was only one car in the parking lot. After opening the door to the most delightful BBQ smoke smell, I asked if the place was open for business and got told that we should order soon as the lunch crowd were coming in soon. Luckily we did. I got the three meats platter and my wife had the pork ribs. From the first taste fo the brisket I knew this was Texas BBQ heaven!

    Favorite Dish: BBQ brisket - it was crusty on the outside and moist and lovely on the inside, it melted in my mouth!

    Great ambience for dates. I went for Valentine's Day and it was great. My date liked that there was gluten free products and they actually tasted good. The baked mac n cheese tasted great. Even better was the deep dish chocolate chip cookie with ice cream, so doughy and warm and big enough to share. Good prices too and in addition I had a GroupOn. The waiter was so attentive and funny that I left a big tip.

    Favorite Dish: The deep dish chocolate chip cookie with ice cream.

    Big Texan Steak Ranch, Amarillo: You can do it!!!

    by razorbacker Updated Apr 16, 2013

    Well, this place is famous. I've been past here quite a few times, even eaten here once before. Those who've seen this place and its challenge featured on "Man vs. Food" on the Travel Channel know the lowdown here.
    If you can eat a 72-ounce steak and all the trimmings in one hour, it's free. If not it's 72 bucks to ya, payable up front. You have to eat the steak (but not the fat or gristle,) a house salad, a vegetable side, a baked potato (but not the skin,) three jumbo shrimp (but not the tails,) and a dinner roll.
    I thought about taking the challenge when we were here in 2006, but didn't have the time or wherewithal. This time I pretty well resolved to give it a shot before we even left home.
    I have to say it was about the best steak I've had. And it's quite an unforgettable experience. I had my wife and son to cheer me on, and in fact as Hoss Cartwright would say "...the whole dadburned place!"
    Sad to say I came up short by 10.3 ounces of steak and a dinner roll, but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Oh, the date on the camera's wrong. This was actually August 15, 2010.

    Favorite Dish: The steak was GREAT: thick and juicy, medium rare. Didn't need any steak sauce with it (though if I had I would've asked for Heinz 57.) I liked all the food, including the dinner salad with Roquefort dressing.
    And I had a Diet Coke that didn't get much action.
    By the way, during this challenge, you're up on a dais with room for 6 challengers at a time. I talked a couple of Norwegian kids that were with a large, rowdy Norwegian tour group into giving it a shot. They fared a good deal worse than me, but they'll have something to tell their kids and grandkids!
    There's also a couple of real-time webcams focused on challengers and they're broadcast on the website continuously.
    Oh, and at $72 for a 72-ounce steak that would make a 20-ounce steak only $20...eminently reasonable.
    And, people, in case you're wondering - in the words of the Terminator - "I'll be back!!!"

    Anticipation!!! Gettin' primed!!! That's some SERIOUS food!!! Workin' on it. Time's up!

    Schlotzsky's: Favorite Sandwich

    by msbrandysue Written Dec 31, 2012

    Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it. Schlotzsky's has sandwich shops across the country but was formed and has the majority of their shops in Texas.

    In most location you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they call your number. It's very casual and I'm sure you'll love the food! Some locations offer a drive-through option.

    Hours of operation
    Monday-Sunday: 10am-10pm in some locations, but not all

    Various locations include a Cinnabon or Carvel (ice cream) inside.

    Favorite Dish: The highlight is the sandwiches. They make it with thick sourdough bread and very thinly sliced meat. Then they sprinkle cheese (the best is a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella) on one piece of bread and run it through an oven conveyor belt. Therefore the sandwich is warm and very tasty. The Original is their signature sandwich and comes with: “Home of The Original® Sandwich. Lean smoked ham, Genoa and cotto salamis, and melted cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses layered with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and our signature dressing on toasted Sourdough bread.” (From the website.)

    Their sandwiches are quite large. I’ve never ordered a large, the mediums are quite enough when you’re at your hungriest.

    Their original chips are delicious! Their pizzas are as well. The cheese and pizza is definitely worth trying, also cooked on a sourdough. The bbq chicken looks just as good but it’s hard not to get my favorite sandwich, the turkey and cheese.

    Baytown Seafood: Great Seafood in Victoria

    by Basaic Written Apr 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love good seafood and the seafood here is exceptional. The decor is nautical and frankly only average and the service was about average too; but the food was well prepared and well presented. And great food is the main reason to go to a restaurant anyway isn't it? Would be a 5 with better service.

    Favorite Dish: I had Blackened Catfish smothered in Crawfish Etoufee, some of the best I have ever eaten.

    Blue Mountain Bistro: Fine Dining in Fort Davis

    by Basaic Written Apr 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want fancy cooking and will pay fancy prices, this is probably one of the best places to go in West Texas outside El Paso. Menu has things like "Seared Sea Scallops and Linguine", "Pepper Crusted Pork Tenderloin" and "Eggplant Parmesan". Desserts include "Brie and Berries" and "Isle Flottant". I just had some French Onion Soup which was quite good. Hours are 5 PM to 9 PM Tuesday through Saturday and 11 AM to 3 PM on Sunday. They have a bar too.

    Peach Cafe: Great Food in Boerne

    by Basaic Written Apr 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Peach Cafe is located in an historic building in the historic district of Boerne. The inside reminded me of Grandma's House. The menu tends toward trendy, health food like Greek Salad, Quiche, sandwiches and similar items. This is NOT my normal choice to eat but they also had a Cajun Shrimp Gumbo with Rice. The service was very good and the staff was friendly. Hours are 11 AM to 2 PM daily. I highly recommend this place!

    Favorite Dish: The Cajun Shrimp Gumbo with Rice was very good but isn't it supposed to have okra in it?

    The Dog and Bee: A Touch of Britain in Beeville

    by Basaic Written Apr 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Dog and Bee is patterned after a British Style Pub and has a menu to match. The decor is dark wood and original items imported from the UK and old parts of the empire. Add to that young ladies (mostly Hispanic this is Texas) in kilts (short skirts) and how can you go wrong? They have TVs showing sports, a decent list of domestic and imported beers and wines, and two outdoor seating areas one of which was built to resemble the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park in London. Don't Miss It!

    Favorite Dish: I had a bowl of chili which was very well spiced and had a slight kick, along with a large soda.

    Mamacita's: Good Mexican Food in Clint (El Paso)

    by Basaic Updated Apr 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a bar and grill with a more extensive menu than you might expect. I did not so much want Mexican, steak or burgers, so I ordered a Ham and Cheese Omelet with Jalapenos. It was pretty good. I also enjoyed the big screen TVs set to sports channels. They have an outdoor seating area too.
