Stop by after catching a show at Auditorium Shores (this year: Cheap Trick, She & Him, and Ozomatli). Don't like meat? Well, heed their slogan: "Horrifying Vegetarians Since 1988."
Guy visits this barbecue joint that uses only green mesquite wood or young wood for cooking. The owner swears by it for giving the meat the best and most consistent flavor.
Sliced beef chili and cheese fries are a great starter to share. Ask for side or ranch Ribs are better than brisket.
Go to Green Mesquite and eat BBQ with friends!
Order the baked potato with chopped beef and feel like a fatty.
Great fried Okra
Update: baby cobbler now made with actual children. A delicacy!
Chopped beef sandwich here always hits the spot.
Baby cobbler is not actually made with real babies.
2 Meat Plate, cold Shiner Bock & the Peach Cobler!
