Sooooooo,...are you gonna share the "name" of the marinade????

It's funny but I didn't really pay much attention. Marinades are like ________ everybodies got one. It had a yellow and blue cartoon pig on the label (I think). I will look for it next time I am in HEB. She told me it is hard to find and it probably is.

If you need to buy a marinade from a store for a brisket, you don't know how to cook a real brisket. Gotta create your own rub and know how to work the smoker!

I like the Soup in the winter and the salads in the summer. They fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness, ease my trouble-thats what they do!

But...they have potato salad...

I just noticed Chicken Fried Steak on the menu today. It comes with mashed potatoes and green beens. Has anyone tried it?

Yes, and it's yummy! The downside is that it takes 10+ minutes to prepare, so the rest of your party will be finished before you.

Bill Miller's keeps expanding their menu. Back when I worked there over 25 years ago, breakfast was not served nor fish during Lent.This is not the healthiest place to eat, but they offer a broad selection, good sized portions, and a fair price. I don't agree with how they treat their employees as discussed in another thread or their business practices such as paying different starting wages at different sides of town. But with 70 locations, it is hard to argue their success.

I'm a Dan of Bill Miller's at lunch. I don't usually go for dinner but then again I hardly eat fast food for dinner when I have time to make it myself or go to a sit down place.

Actually, I eat at Bill Millers because it's HEALTHIER than most places. As a matter of fact, I'd go so far as to say that it is probably some of the healthiest you can eat in terms of lowering your chance of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.....as long as you don't eat too many carbs and don't drink the sweet tea.

Load up on the fatty foods. It's what our ancestors ate:

"Experiments over the last decade have demonstrated that people who eat as much as they want of fatty-foods, even foods rich in saturated fat like butter and lard and eggs, lose weight and improve their heart disease risk factors."
