I was just looking at the lovely food photos and it looked to me like there were a few leaves of fresh spinach (gasp!) on the salad. Was there?

Greymo,
I didn't notice that until I processed the photo for the report, but you are correct.Fresh Spinach abounds in that pile of greens.


Debbie was still alert and (very) healthy looking after dinner. I will assume the restaurant obtains it's salad makings from a safe source.

One Iron, can you confirm that your bride is still among the living after her daring experience?

Debbie, wake up, Debbie.....Debbie? Phew, she had me there for a minute. Yeah, she's still kicking, and no worse for the experience. We probably suffered more after the wonderful corn muffins than any spinach.

BBG potatoes are HUGE

I am a big eater but I could not even finish mine, they were fully loaded with pulled pork, sour cream sauce cheese and whatever else they could find in the back to throw on there.

Welcome back to the land of yankees Mr & Mrs Mayor, glad your trip was safe.

The trip report as always top notch, and the photos.... i tried to cut and paste the picture but my printer only turned out paper, and it wasn't too tasty

Hey, Larry, I know a place where we can get a brisket salad. Does that count?

That'll do, but I'll end up eating the brisket.....which isn't too bad. As Bushie once said, we'll just have Debbie go out in the yard for some greens.

Most excellent posts & pics, as usual, AL. If your trip had been post phoned until a week from this coming Monday, I would have joined 'yall in Atlanta.

Thanks for all the kind words, Folks! We try to show a bit of the countryside where we go as well as the foodie-stops. I think (IMHO) Trip Reports are the backbone of this web-site. I enjoy and use the restaurant comments from folks, but it seems to come alive when people add photos and travel commentary to their posts. Lots of members seem to be doing that now and I enjoy all of them.

Now it will be just 'local' stuff til the Texas trip in February. That will be about two weeks on the road with the Finale winding up in the Austin area for The Great Bushie BBQ Scavanger Hunt and Glee Club Concert!
We haven't ventured south of San Antonio/ I-10 before, so a ride down to the Confederate Air Force Headquarters and Museum is (tentativly) on the agenda for that tour. A circuit ride of the Czech Villages in the Schlunberg area is also on the list for that trip (before we get to Bushie's)!

Will San Antonio be the base of opperations for the '07 Glee Club extravaganza??? Budget minded Soprano/Tenors want to know!

WOW! What a cool roadtrip! I've covered a lot of those roads and places myself. And plan to again real soon!

I have to say, that it's a shame that Cherokee doesn't have some better places to chow. You'd think there would be several mom & pop country cookin' joints, of some fame. Best meal I had there, was the buffet at the Casino. I suggest staying at "Cool Waters" motel, in downtown Cherokee. It has a delightful little stream right behind it, and is wonderfully relaxing to hear at night.

Glad to see The Dillard House was it's usual excellent self. I usually like to get there, just before sundown, and I ask to wait till a table next to the window is open. Watching the sun set over the valley is really special, as you devour all those goodies, many of which were harvested that morning. As a sidenote, back in the city of Clayton, just a few miles from The Dillard House, is a restaurant that's name escapes me, but it's downtown, and is co-owned, by the banjo playing boy, from the famous movie "Deliverance." " /> How's that for trivia...


Helen is a nice afternoon, as well. I know of the BBQ place mentioned. Pretty good! My fave place is The Troll, at the far end of town. It sits right on the river, and is a lot of fun at night. The grilled chicken sandwich I have had several times was huge and tasty!

Being in Atlanta, there's too many faves to mention here. I do suggest Green's on Green Street, when in Roswell, Ga., for as close to the Dillard House atmosphere, as one can find in metro Atlanta. Incredible pies!

Sounds like a winning trip for you guys!!!

All-The-Mayor,Texas Highways magazine had an article about the painted churches in the Schulenberg and surrounding area one time.
You might be able to google painted churches of Texas to find some info.Don't know what wildflowers are out in February.I understand that they turned the old Gonzales County jail into a muesum.
Hope you enjoy the trip.I've been to Pleasenton,Jordanton,Christine,Charlotte,Poteet,Floresville,etc.manytimes.Mainly ate in various DairyQueens along the way.We never tried any mom and pop places,though we have around the San Antonio - New Braunfels area.

The Promised Land Dairy in Floresville has tours and a restarant or did.Never have eaten there though.Will have to look for the thread,but HankNBugsy mentions some places around the la Vernia area
around Loop1604 and USHighway 87 will have to look for the thread.
There are buget minded places around San Antonio PCDiva to eat.
A place on W.W.White Road,also called Loop 13,is Mr.And Mrs.G's Kitchen.It's a cafeteria style,but with southern cooking.They have pork chops,greens,etc.and has been reviewed several times in the local San Antonio paper.There's Rolando's Super Tacos.They have these really big tacos and such of various kinds.Promised Land Dairy has a website,not sure about Rolando's.Also there's The Malt House
which I think is on Southwest Military and Zazamora.They may have a website.Been there many years and they have old fashioned milk shakes and burgers.Ate at El Ranchito in Seguin that was good.
There is also a place in Seguin where USHwy90 and USHWY 90A((0 Alternate split) It's a mexican food place,but I can't think of the name.

Any specific date on the Austin Glee club event?

Since it is a hike from Knoxville, I just wanted to plan ahead.

How many folks will be staying at bushie's house???? Just kidding. I got enough points to stay at Marriott for a month. I have been paying out the rearend here in Houston for a month.

Looking forward to a lot of BBQ and chicken fried steak in Austin.

Anybody have an idea what the agenda will be??

Doesn't really matter to me as I will enjoy anything around the Austin area.

All tentative and open for modification... The 'tour' will be like the First Glee Club get-together... A circuit ride of several Texas BBQ Stands...Bushie will make up the list...two or three on Saturday and a couple on Sunday. We will not try to do 5 in a day as we did some years back. Saturday night could be a music night-out perhaps.
The stuff I was talking about in So Texas and the Czech Villages was earlier in the week "on our Way" to Austin.

Except for locking in the President's Day Weekend, everything is still in the 'organizational' stage.

Works for me. I am glad we are not going to do 5 BBQ places in one day!!!!!

Whatever else works really good.

raining cats and dogs in Houston. I have not been able to enjoy any good roadfood while here. It has been hospital food and Krogers next door. Booring.

color me embarrassed! I meant Austin and wrote San Antonio for some unknown reason. Kind of like when I mean foot, am pointing to my foot, and still say elbow... I'll blame it on the moon phase, yeah that's it.

I still plan to be there! I may just need someone to find me at the airport and tell me exactly where "there" is.

Lots of options depending on your individual schedules. I think I am safe in saying there will be a dinner meeting somewhere in that general area on Saturday afternoon/evening, and a Breakfast, again in the general area Sunday Morning.

The days before and after will be a chance for those with the travel time available to add places to the list that will be laid out in the near future. Start thinking of your timing and schedules soon, as advance planning is a real good thing when the winter sets in!

At this time, my schedule is open. I think I will drive down and make a few stops on the way. perhaps visit with rickF, stop in lafayette and then on to Austin.

Great thoughts on a BBQ get together..

If Bushie is leading the way, do we need to bring firearms or knives? Some of the places he talked about if you don't have a gun when you go in...they give you one.

probably better go with the ones supplied at the door, easier than trying to get weapons on an airplane (or toothpaste for that matter...) But I'm planning to rely on my Southern Belle charm and only have to resort to a DIVA moment in extreme cases!

A couple of remarks..
Was that beans on potato salad?
If so, that is one of my favorite combinations.
And secondly..
When I saw that giant spud..
I said:
"HOLY S$$$$"..
That is one gigantic tater!
As usual, Al.. a great write up and awesome pics..
Now I must go raid the fridge, as I am hungry!

Roossy, we have got to encourage an eye exam for you!!!

The Photo in your Beans/Potato Salad Question shows my Beloved holding MY Ice Cream in a Waffle Cone...While HER Turtle Sundae sits in the bowl on the table... Those are Chopped Pecans and Hot Caremel over the Ice Cream!!!

Judge for yourselves, Folks !!
