This blog post is making me hungry.

The Fort Worth newspaper, THE STAR TELEGRAM, is having a burger battle. I think it's in round 2 phase.


Click HERE for the article (and maybe you can vote).

I mainly wanted to blog about it because of the picture of the burgers in the boxing ring. I had never seen a picture like that before, and well, I liked it.

(That makes you want a hamburger, doesn't it?)



As many of you know, one of my most favorite things to do in the world is to eat out.

This morning Sam took me to WAFFLE HOUSE for breakfast.

I always feel as if I'm walking into a bit of Americana when I walk into WAFFLE HOUSE.






While there I took this picture...
Those people are just regular folks... oh, and they have a good view of the cooks cooking. (I think WAFFLE HOUSE cooks are amazing to watch.)
That man on the left sitting in the booth with the blue shirt on had a book with him entitled "I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BE AN ATHEIST". (I may have to do a search for that book.)

Here's their menu from WH...
Clearly it's not a health food place.... but it's yummy.

Speaking of not-health-food-places, if you've been in Waco for any length of time you know about THE HEALTH CAMP...
I used to go there when I was in Baylor in the early '70's. It's still there and it still looks the same... and I don't think there is ANY health food in that health camp. Well, they may have bananas for their banana splits.


Speaking of eateries...
Last week on the way to board meeting we ate at a Mexican restaurant in Marietta, OK, called La Roca. It was delicious.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of these men....
They were having the best time, laughing, and eating... and even though they saw me and other women walk in, they kept their hats on. (That's the Oklahoma way.)

Now I have an assignment.... in a comment please tell me where you like to get a good, juicy hamburger. (It can be an anonymous comment.)

(This assignment is not required... unless you want to make me happy.)

You're killing me. I think I am going to have to get dressed and go get a hamburger now. The best ones come off my backyard grill, but it is too hot to turn it on, and besides I would have to go to the grocery store first. So I guess I will be making a run to Kincaid's. So much for trying to lose weight . . .

Ryan and I's favorite place in Denton is called The Love Shack. There is also one in Fort Worth. I like getting just the regular Love Burger, but Ryan likes the Dirty Love Burger, which has a fried quail egg on it.

I'm going to have to try that Love Burger, Laura. I, for sure, like the name.

I'm with Deanna, though, for now. Kincaid's is my favorite!!

As for the burger, I always liked them at Texas Hamburger Factory in Highland Village, but I think it closed. Around Green Bay, Zesty's makes a good burger.

And I can't believe it, but we lived in Texas for five years and NEVER ate at the Waffle House. I guess we'll just have to road trip for that one. I really miss road trips.

Yay for WH with your DH, Nancy! I don't think I've had a burger better than Kinkaid's. I went to the Love shack a few weeks ago and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. I wasn't surprised at how hot it was and we were sitting outdoors. I don't recall indoor seating.

Just wondering if you have eaten at one of the Original Pancake Houses in the Dallas area? When my daughter and SIL lived in Addison, we would go to one nearby. Soooooo good. Never had a Dutch Baby, but always wanted to! As for burgers, hard to beat The Roadhouse (not the chain) in Bastrop and JD's Cove Harbor between Rockport and Aransas Pass. Both yummy and HUGE.

Bobbie, I HAVE eaten at the Original Pancake House in Dallas ... and now they've built on near us in Grapevine... and we are major fans!!!
I keep thinking I'll try their Dutch Baby, too.!!

Carisa, I'll have to try the Texas Hamburger Factory in Highland Village.
And I'm sorry y'all don't have WAFFLE HOUSES in Wisconsin!!

Maria, I like your custom of WH with your DH!!! :)

I love to eat at Mooya on 377

Nancy said...

Thanks, Kaylin.
I'll have to try that out.

(Oh, I also like FIVE GUYS' hamburgers.)

One of our favorite places in Dallas is HOLE IN THE WALL on Harry Hines, a block south LBJ. I think its still there, we haven't been in awhile.

I love the picture of all those good ole boys in OK restaurant. You've captured a moment that looks like it belongs in a movie. True Grit perhaps!
