i know betty! but since i'm living downtown now,it's convienent and just a block away,i lived for 6 years in laredo texas and we crossed the border 2 or 3 times a week to eat in nuevo laredo,i think our night time nachos at the cafe are much better than luncheria's but i already eat there 6 days a week,lol and well i can't afford to eat at places like my night job and i've never liked any of the waterfront places,but i recently discovered ivy's downtown and their armstrongs banana ice cream,lol i guess i'd love to see a burger king in town,it sucks that we have to fly over to PR when the craving hits,i dunno so many of the restaurants all have the same dead animals done the same way on their menu's,most of the places here are boring,and the really good ones are out of my league,i guess my fave downtown place is dashi
HHMMMmmmm, just thinking about a border town makes me hungry. Although I don't even recognize them when I go home now. I feel your pain, I get stuck in my ruts too. I hate to spend money on lunch just because I'm too lazy to pack a lunch. So I end up hungry and posting too much on this thread. 😉 Pleasants hamburger is pretty good and is enough for two meals.
trw, I had Burger King on my recent trip to Oregon. Something about that char-broiled...just better than the other place. I didn't make it to Taco Bell. I was a little disappointed, but my daughter lives in an area where there are a lot of Mexicans, ergo, a lot of taco stands, and she just rolls her eyes at me when I mention Taco Bell! She's a good daughter, and did offer to take me, but I opted for the good stuff.
All this restaurant talk. . .
If you're on StX you may notice that most restaurants are closed down due to the slow month of September.
Just wanted to remind you that Salud Bistro is still open everyday but Sunday for dinner.
And, our wine list just won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, so it's beyond a good house wine.
If you pop in, ask for me and I'll come say hello (if I'm not buried in tickets) (tu)
Just an update of restaurant reviews.
We just had breakfast at Shenanigans. My husband wanted to go to Paradise, but I told him Shenanigans had gotten really good reviews on the "forum", so let's try it. (Sorry, TRW). Really sorry! I had the eggs benedict, and it was the worst I have ever had. The hollandaise was simply a white sauce, with no flavor. It was probably the same gravy they use for sausage gravy. The service was really good (I think it was the owner, but I don't know.) The French Toast that had been recommended was not available today. My husband had an omelet. It was "ok", but he wouldn't order it again.
For good Benedict, I personally like Breezee's. (not sure of spelling)
i for one think we have enough burger joints serving bar food,after awhile they are all the same,we also have enough fine dining places,we have greek,we could use an arab place,we have thai/vietnamese coming,we have plenty of pizza,skip the restaurant thing and bring us a jiffy lube or one of the franchised auto places with fast in and out service with some gaurantees
Had dinner last night at Ono's in F'Sted, located over Turtles in the old Cafe du Soleil spot.
He has a wonderful variety of fish on the menu as well as steak.
Sunset was beautiful; food was delicious; service great and very friendly. Salud is our #1 favorite but Ono's was a nice change--we'll go again.
Had dinner at Cheeseburger's with mom and listened to Llewellen. This was my second time for the Sat. nite Prime Rib Nite and once again the food was GREAT! Our server Joan was fantastic...and I found out that we (The Case Place) almost got her awhile back but had just hired someone else...our loss! It was also good to see the place crowded with both snow-birds AND locals as well as regulars. Business is tight these days and even a place like us (Case Place) have experienced a bit of a slowdown (still recommend a reservation for lunch to guarantee a table though*-)).
