    About this time every morning I get to thinking about lunch...

    What are you having for lunch?  Or if you read later, what did you have for lunch?

    Either boudin or a poboy from the pub across the street.. haven't decided yet.  Great place - bartender already has a glass of whiskey poured for me when I sit down.

    Something that will change your life forever. If you have not had it, you are missing out. You can't just get it anywhere though. It has to be from a place that knows what they are doing.

    Heh, regional I think. It's a cookie cutter BBQ place in the middle of a business park. So neat, sit down, stuff.

    I'd rather go to Hard Eight

    But Dickies is free.

    I ate at a pretty shady looking BBQ place yesterday and it was pretty darn legit. Dang good BBQ. Had the sampler so I got Links, Ribs, and Brisket. Seating was interesting went to describe and then saw picture. Open since 1910 in that location. . Either way it was dang good. http://www.sonnybryans.com/our-story.html

    Which location? I might head up to the Lover's one to give it a shot. BBQ is hard to beat. Have you ever tried Soulman's?

    BBQ seems to be popular among our ranks.

    Everyone else must be on that water and hope diet.  

    Feed me!!!

    (I just ate some homemade banana pie)

    I was at the Original-Inwood location. Mainly because it was close to work and home. Good to know they have other locations in the Dallas location. Also I have never tried Soulmans, I will have to give them a try sometime.

    I take that back, I have been to a Soulman's I forgot that the place I went to in Van was that place. This was a good 4 years ago though so haven't been recently. Since I am new to Dallas, always looking for good places. I had a dang good burger at Maple and Motor. Another shady looking place.  http://www.yelp.com/biz/maple-and-motor-dallas

    Just as an update, lunch was delectable.  A glass of whiskey, fried onions, and two of these:
