Tried Smash Burger again - sad to say - the burger was grease soaked and very, very salty. Also, overpriced for what you get as compared to Culvers, for example.

Not many people there at lunch, so maybe that's a sign.

excellent post jules --

last restaurant we went to was Auden's Kitchen and enjoyed the food very much. Fried chicken was delicious.

However...we walked in during lunch hour -- with a 2 year old -- and got looks like you wouldn't believe. Felt like I was boarding a plane with a baby. As usual, my kiddo was well-behaved (it's the other one that was the nightmare at this age) and we too received a compliment about her behavior from the party next to us.

1604 and Bandera. The bottom of the roll almost fell apart in the grease. Too bad because I love a good burger.

I had a not-so-good experience at that one, too. First visit was great. Follow-up, pretty bad. Haven't been back.

Mr. Cod, first visit. The lady took my order then walked away from the register. I was still standing at the register when she came back and asked "Can I help you ???" Whoa doggy...I said "yes, you can complete my order". She just looked at me. She forgot about me in 90 seconds while giving someone else their to go order. So much for that place. The fish needed another minute in the grease, the crab cakes were very good and so were the fries. Now some meds for the ADD and everything will be good to go.

Give me a well behaved child over an obnoxious adult ANYDAY!!


Manners. It's what's for dinner!
Thanks Jules for support. In no way do I condone screaming children in a restaurant of any sort. Let's make that clear. Parents are responsible to teach them how to behave. But banning children because they're children - well that's not right or appropriate. I'm sure many restaurants are quite pleased when my family walks in and pays for adult and sometimes child portions for children - especially in this economy.
Now for BN, if it was so easy to control an adult in which you have no authority - aka 'simple as turning off the ringer' - that would be great. But unfortunately in this day, some people seem to be honored to be accessible 24/7, ringer on, no matter where they are. It's rude. If it was plausible to get up and turn it off for them, then you have a point. Unfortunately we have no authority over the obnoxiously loud drunk adult sitting next to us. And quite frankly, I've been in as many restaurants with an obnoxious adult as with an out-of-control child.
And as Norma Rae stated, "k'vetch, k'vetc,k'vetch".[/quote]

DC - there are plenty of restaurants around the country and a few SA that boast somewhere on the menu or posted in the dining room "Cell phones are prohibited in the dining area / Please silence your cell phones / etc." Many of these places do not offer a children's menu - the policies go hand in hand. And I have been in situations where a conceirge or host has asked a guest to turn off their phone or to end a phone call - not OUR guests.

I however would never 'feed' my ""future"" child anything off of a 'children's menu', chicken strips and spagetti and meatballs - no thanks. I would rather teach a child to cope in an adult situation and be able to taste new foods - if and when it would be appropriate.

...I know that what McD's is for....but I'll never take them there.

Anyway, I met with friends a Nosh tonight. The Green Chile Mac and Cheese had a nice bite. The Grilled Mushrooms were amazing, we all loved the garlic, tomatoes, onions...truly great and served super hot.

We were there during HH, $6 wines - awesome.

Too bad the place was not busier.

Just went to Lily's (Filipino food) for lunch today and it was very good. I've driven by it a billion times, but never noticed it. The prices were very reasonable ($5-6) and the employees were very friendly. Also got to watch a Filipino American Idol wannabe show as an added bonus
