RE: Santa Fe to Denton TX..good food rec's
My brother and I stopped over in Amarillo for the night last year when I helped him move out to Ruidoso, NM, and we chanced upon this place just west of downtown called Desperado's, which was the sort of texas barbecue place you either consider old-fashioned or cliched--though for this barbecue-deprived Chicagoan, I was in hog heaven. It was a Tuesday and all-you-can-eat rib night, which while sounding like Old Country Buffet, was really just awesome: these were huge, meaty ribs, bright pink with the fat still left in them--just amazing eats. Sides were great, cobbler was fresh and beer was cold...most amazing part? It was seven bucks for the ribs.
Hope this helps.
