Default Best places to eat in your Town

I know that a lot of the green screen members travel from time to time, if not daily. It would be pretty neat to have a list of the best places to eat in your little part of the world. I will start it off. If you are ever in Rhome, Tx stop at the Giant Burger at the corner of Hwy 114 and 287. They make a good burger. Not much else in Rhome so I will pass it on to the next guy! Thanks for playing as I will use this thread to find places to eat while I'm traveling with work or the family. 123 and Go----

Crosby Texas...

If you're after a great burger, there's a little place named "Busta's Burgers". Best dadgum burger I've ever had.

There is also a place named "Taco-Taco". You can probably guess what they serve...lol. Theyre very good, and very authentic, Mexican Tacos.

Hometown Burger in Votaw,TX.






It's also the only place in town, but the bacon cheeseburger is one of the best I've ever had. Also the homemade onion rings

I like his beef enchiladas, been eating them for 40 some odd years LOL

In El Campo for a burger other than Whataburger try Emil's Place. Old beer joint that opened in 1938 or so. Fresh ground beef and ask for their jalapeno sour dough buns. Also have a really good CFS, chili and other stuff.

Funny, my Dad used to take me there when I was a boy and his Dad too him when he was a boy.

They have got it right.

I passed right by the Giant Burger last week. Didn't really have time to stop then. Will make a mental note to try it out.

I'd suggest eating wherever the company safety guys suggest.

Always a good burger stop on a Lake Bridgeport trip.
Another good burger stop is the little store/gas station in Palo Pinto.

I stopped to grab a bite at this random cafe by chance a few months back and it seriously had the best quesadilla I've ever had. I'm not a fan of chicken fried steak but my brother is so, he ordered it. He told me I had to try it and their chicken fried steak was amazing. This little cafe called "Cafe" in Graford.

A few weeks ago, while in San Antonio, I was skimming through the channels in my hotel room and watched this food show on travel channel. I don't recall the name of the show but they made a stop by Valentina's in Austin. The food looked great so I had to try it on my way back to DFW. When I got there, the line was incredibly long but, the wait was so worth it. Their smoked brisket taco was seriously the best dish with brisket I've ever had. If you guys are ever in the area, I'd suggest you give them a try.

Y's Grocery Store in Brownsboro has great burgers. On Fridays, you can get their brown bag special which is a burger, fries, and drink for $3.99 (was $2.99 until a year or so ago). They make the burgers in a tiny corner of the store. Y's is a seriously old-timey operation that looks like it hasn't changed since WW-II. It's not much bigger than a 7-11 but they manage to be a full on grocery store with a meat market. My wife told me they are moving the food operation into what had been a pizza place next door. I hope that happens - be nice to have a sit-down option. Also, the meat market at Y's has the best T-bones, porterhouse, ribeyes in the Henderson county.
