Texas Roadhouse Restaurant in Middletown NY - Wed, 02/16/11 11:07 AM
0
Hello all ,
We have had success here in the Hudson Valley with our Hot Dog meets and thought  another should be put together . This time the thought is a new  Texas Roadhouse has opened up in Middletown NY . Only a  few miles right off of Rt 17 and 84 .
How about a meet  here . ?
Coney Island Lou will be reporting back as  he will be scouting it out today and I will stop in there tommorrow and check menus , possible seating locations , etc.
Any thoughts ?
Benzee

Texas Roadhouse is a chain....is this perhaps a local joint using the same name?

Hello all ,
Apparently this is a chain and  advised by  other roadfooders that its not a true roadfood joint .  Oh well , I'm gonna visit anyway , if roadfooders think to join me feel free , otherwise I will be still on the lookout for true roadfood establishments

I look forward to LeeTheBard hosting a roadfood meetup at Bubba Gump's in NYC.
 
Or if they aren't open that day, Applebees as the backup plan.

I wasn't going to speak up, honestly because I really don't care, and I have other issues in my life to deal with, but regarding the other thread about where all the forum traffic has gone- I think this response sums it up in a nut shell..
 
By the way regarding the true definition of the word "roadfooder" if you were to take all the Active forum members aka "Roadfooders" I think the real "Roadfooders" would account for less than 1%  percent.

Would never eat at Applebees(or tons of others) nor do I know the place talked about in this thread...but all I'm saying is if someone likes a place, give them some slack...and the Bubba Gump quote is getting a little thin...(I remember recommending it FOR ITS VIEW OF TIMES SQUARE)..Good food is good food where ever you find it....I have loved good food, especially roadfood before the era of chains...I remember the great restaurants in  NYC in the 50's...Mama Leone's...Hawaii Kai.....so many others...all gone replaced by chains all over Manhattan......most I wouldn't go to......Those who know me know I wouldn't be caught in most fast food joints...A pizza lover, I can't stomach the thought of Pizza Hut...but if someone enjoys it, oh well.......Is an Outback steak so much worse than a few mom & pop steak joint's out there..could all roadfooders always tell the difference????? who cares, as long as when you pay the check.you're satisfied........ROADFOOD IS NOT SNOB FOOD.....live and let live...even if it's Bubba Gump's in Manhattan...oh come on "real roadfooder" indeed...are they the people struck by lightning if they walk into TGI Friday's....sorry I rant and rave...sorry I'm NOT a purist about everything...and where I am, I've learned to live and let live...many "roadfood places serve food far worse than some food sold in chains..if a chain serves a good meal....oh well I rant again.....I'm a roadfooder and at a Chain food Annonymous meeting I'll stand up and say,"I'm Leethebard, and I ate at Bubba Gump's"Save meI'm not a real roadfooder!! Forgive me for I have strayed"

I  guess that there is nothing   wrong with this  but  I consider a  Roadfood Meet  as something to be held at a Roadfood  restaurant.

I'd have no problem with that either...I object only to the digs and put downs about "real roadfooders"..you enjoy good roadfood, as I have for well over 60 years,you're a roadfooder....and you're allowed to step foot inside a chain with your kids,and it isn't a roadfood sin!!!! I'm sorry but I just may enjoy that view at Manhattan's Bubba Gump's again some time...My kids loved it!!!

Exactly. 
 
I had thought it too obvious to specifically point this out, but it appears it was not obvious enough for some.

Not for nuttin, but I would break bread with Benzee, CI Lou, Lee and many other Roadfooders, at any time and in any venue.  The food will never be more important that the people.

Is an Outback steak so much worse than a few mom & pop steak joint's out there..could all roadfooders always tell the difference????? who cares, as long as when you pay the check.you're satisfied
I think most members presence here speaks to the issue of 'who cares'.  We (well, most of us, it appears) are here because we *do* care.    Your statement above doesn't sound like a very road-food oriented philosophy to me.  Maybe eatanywherewhocares.com is more suited to your tastes?  I think the domainname is available.

ROADFOOD IS NOT SNOB FOOD

Depends on your point of view. 
 
I just recently moved to a better home in a better school district for my kids.  One point of view would be that I am a "neighborood snob" or a "school snob" since I rejected the one in favor of the other.  My point of view is I simply chose something I preferred - in this case, a better neighborhood and school for my children.
 
Roadfooders are supposed to be choosy.  They are supposed to generally reject one kind of food in favor of another.  Go read the mantra of the website if this is a new concept to you.  One point of view could indeed conclude that Roadfooders are snobs, since we generally reject the Applebees of the world in favor of....well.....Roadfood.  Your use of the term 'snob' here is overextended.
 
leethebard
Forgive me for I have strayed
You are forgiven.   I would bet that nearly every one of us (yes, yes, exceptions noted, no need for anyone to rave about how they NEVER eat at chains) has eaten at least one chain in the past year, probably many more times for the majority, myself included.  But I don't think the focus of our writings on this website should be about these experiences, and I certainly/absolutely would no more recommend a roadfood gathering be held at a chain restaurant than I would a group of devout vegans at a jersey "beefsteak" event

An admirable position.
 
That said, your response basically misses the whole point
 
Taking it as assumed said gathering (you did mentioned breaking bread?) would take place over the course of a meal (or at least include a meal), I assume that you'd find it more appropriate to gather at a roadfood joint (as opposed to a chain) for such a meetup?  If not, why not?

Breaking bread with roadfooders is more important to me than the food is at this point in my life .
I have met many great roadfooders over the yrs .
Very entertaining stuff , feel free to argue over the threads expense (:

About the typing...I am well aware of porper writing technique. I have written a novel, many short stories, a musical and a play(thank God for editors). I understand and have taught grammar, and creative writing. I take this to be E-mail...and a proper-writing-free-zone...but thanks for the advice!!!

TJ, I think it's the little purple pills you are looking for.
 
Listen, I know you enjoy being my very own "person internet stalker", and I do get a kick out of you ramblings, but at this point, you need to relieve some pressure or something.  You keep talking about being belittled?  I assure you, you can get no littler.
 
Now, I am sure you are warming up your typing fingers, but just PM me and stop leading threads down the garden path.  Or let's join another forum where this kind of stuff is celebrated, and we can have at it to your little hearts content.

I regard to your main message...You choose to better your family position...that is NOT being a snob, nor is it a fair analagy. For example, in thje off topic forum, many post about the book they are reading at the moment in a popular thread. Some is pulp fiction, some worse. I never would put down a read, if someone is actually reading and enjoying it. It might not be considered by Lit. majors as "real" litereature..but if they enjoy it,I never would say it's anything . I love classic lit. AND pulp fiction...chains and roadfood...it might be a bit off to have a roadfood meet-up at a chain, but if the conversation is ABOUT great food and great company,so what.

Ah and then you lost it.  The 'so what' is the members here have a common interest - in Roadfood.   So it *is* important, within the context of a gathering of folks from this website.

Huh????
Well, let's try a hypothetical
 
You (leethebard) are placed in charge of organizing a roadfood meetup in Lockhart Texas.  People say they want to eat BBQ, which makes a lot of sense given the location.  You check the yellow pages and find out that a brand new huge-sized Famous Dave's has opened (How did the city council allow this? who knows! its hypothetical!) in Lockhart. 
 
The good people and good conversation -- these the most important things, right? -- are going to be present no matter where you choose to hold this event.   So do you choose Famous Daves or do you choose one of the several legendarily good roadfood establishments (BBQ joints) for this gathering of roadfood-oriented folks?  Just for the sake of argument, let's also say Lockhart also has an Applebee's with a big banquet room there, and you have been assured by the Applebee's managers that their all-you-can-eat riblets will be available on the day of the gathering.

I am saddened by the posts on this thread. Benzee has organized zillions of eat and greets at great roadfood places. He wants to try out Texas Roadhouse and invites his roadfood friends. I, for one, find this absolutely appropriate. I would invite my friends to meet me at any restaurant just to see them again. I am lucky enough to see the Mayor and Janet (and the puppies) when they come thru Wisconsin to visit family. If time is a factor, I would meet them at a freaking McDonalds along the highway if thats what it took to see them again. Yes, we try to visit great roadfood restaurants when time allows, but if not, sharing a Big Mac would do.

Annie   Your comment is very appropriate. Many folks on this site get into cat-fights over terminology, or regional Roadfood 'nonsense', and the usual comment made to give guidance to them about how to deal with a topic they think is posted incorrectly  ete, is to say "If you don't like Fur-balls in your Tuna Sandwich" (or whatever) Then why not skip over any references to that condiment and go on with life.
 
  I am not big on Weinies or most Pizza. I eat them now and then, but I don't think I would ever go to PINK's in Los Angeles---UNLESS I was meeting some of the SoCal RF folks.
Texas Roadhouse ranks about 3/4 down my list of the chain places mentioned in most of the debate raging above...But I wouldn't put up a fuss if that was the place selected for a meeting !
The whole argument is a real waste of time...If John Doe doesn't want to meet with the others because he doesn't like the restaurant, I'd rather he stayed home than spoil the party by bitching about the lack of dryness of the BBQ or How many units there are in the expanding franchise of the particular business!
LIGHTEN UP FOLKS.

Last time I met Benzee and family, it was at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  We had a great get together at Rustic Kitchen(Chain).  Sure we could have gotten in our cars and left the reservation in search of roadfood, but it wasn't about the food, it was about a group of friends enjoying each others company.
 
At this point, I don't remember squat about the food.  But, I can tell you it was a pleasure to meet up with such a great bunch of people.
 
So getting back to the topic of this thread.  Hey Benzee, thank you for the invite.  Once Lou gets back from his recon mission, and you set a date, I will let you know if I could make it.  You never know when I'll be in the area.(Sidebar - I spent the whole summer of 2010 working about 1 mile from Benzee's house, installing windows in his Alma-Mater.  I thought he lived about 40 miles away in Middletown, so I never contacted him)
 
Lee - If you can find Ramapo, it would be a pleasure meeting you.
 
Ann, After all my years on this site, I figure I owe The Mayor a meal.  My choice to pay my dept would be McDonald's

People, don't fight over this. It's about getting together. About 5 or 6 years ago, one of the great East coast meet-ups happened at the G&M Restaurant in Maryland where almost 50 of us, including the Great Mayor Al, broke bread and enjoyed wonderful crabcakes. I wouldn't classify G&M Restaurant as a Roadfood place by definition. 
 
It truly was about meeting others.

Amen, Scottie !!
 
and Joe, A couple of the McGriddle w/sausage and a Coke (no Ice) is a perfect Mickey Dee's Breakfast for me. Even Better if you're buying!

Sorry, I gotta disagree with you there. I thought G & M was about as "Roadfoody" as you can get.

I have to agree with  Dale.  You can eat one of the best regional dishes here  (crabcakes) at a most reasonable price and  the  crabcakes are wonderful.

Yeah, I guess you're correct. It's not a hole-in-the-wall place but it is a non-franchise restaurant serving a regional dish enjoyed by locals. I stand corrected. I still will stick to my thought about it being about getting together. 
Personally, I'm with Dale (and he knows this) that get togethers with their roots here on this site should be at Roadfood places. And Roadfood is defined on the bottom of the homepage on this site. But, I wouldn't chastise anyone for wanting to meet at any old place.

Thats sorta in line with my point
 
If you're going to get together with fellow roadfooders, why choose a non-roadfood place for said meetup?

I just dont understand why, if you're gonna eat anyway (using the Texas Roadhouse and McDonald's examples) why not eat Roadfood when you are specifically meeting fellow Roadfooders?

Well, some of my friendships that started on this site have become just that-friendships. That was my point. But, we shall agree to disagree.

Winter is not my favorite season. I much prefer Autumn. But, there is nothing more wonderous to me than the first snowfall of winter. It's one of the few things that I consider truly magical. Honestly, I could spend hours just enjoying and appreciating the beauty of the first snowfall. I love the crispness and freshness of the air. I love the way the snow covers the bare trees. Some of my absolute favorite photographs are of snow and ice on tree branches. I love the cleanness and the purity of the fresh, white snow. But, more than anything I love the feeling of complete stillness and quiet that comes with the first snow. My favorite thing is to walk in the early a.m. hours down a path in the new snow. To me, it's like the whole world becomes silent and serene. There is an inner peace that just fills me and a joy that resonates within. Later, I like to be out in the snow with others but I often most fully appreciate the first snow when I am alone. It's a spiritual experience of sorts. Just in writing this, I realized for the first time that if I close my eyes, I can evoke very vivid images of being out in the first snow and even that brings peace.

Fridays are reserved for fish at Gadaletto's here in New Paltz, otherwise just about any day is OK - Gail has her clubs and committees so it all depends on her calendar...
