Wow! It’s been a great couple of weeks in my barbecue journey. It started in February with judging the KCBS Shotgun Fred’s BBQ Cook Off in Huntsville. Sixty-one teams participated, and wouldn’t you know it, the ice storm in Dallas had us short judges. This means we had to “suffer” through additional meats in each category, plus we judged “chef’s choice” and dessert. I had the pleasure of eating the single best piece of chicken I have ever tasted.

Bistek Relleno

The building to the left of Texas Inn on Eastex Freeway has been home to several restaurants over the past decade – Willy Ray’s BBQ, Lone Star Steak House, and more recently J.A.C.K.K’s Diner – and while these barbeque places were smoked out, a new eatery might have what it takes to stay awhile.

Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp
Boudain Quesadillas

Have you stopped by the bright blue restaurant on Calder lately? The spot that has been home to many different types of restaurants is now known for a cuisine that brings a unique blend of Cajun and Tex-Mex to this area.

Chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and northern beans

On the corner of Port Neches Avenue and FM 366 is a quaint café known for an elaborate menu and a down-home atmosphere.


When most people think of Carrabba’s Italian Grill, date nights, special occasions or Sunday dinner usually come to mind. And while the restaurant offers a great atmosphere for those “fancier” occasions, it also has a wonderful lunch menu to choose from all week long.
