Marie Callender's off of Walzem. As usual, it was excellent. We could only eat half our meals and also took some pie home. The server also gave us wonderful service and got over a 40% tip. Sure wish we could have found that coupon but we just had to go with or without it.

I heard a funny story about Marie Callender's. When Paul Mcartney (The Beatle) was visiting the USA, he would always hide his true identity. He loved Marie Callenders. He didn't know it was a chain!

This has been a dead thread for a bit, so:

Frederick's Bistro on Huebner and Military:

1. Expensive.
2. Food was good, had veal - the issue being that was their high priced veal significantly better than less expensive entrees at some local Italian restaurants. Depends.
3. Service - a touch slow but was very crowded. Polite and acceptable.
4. Clientele - interesting mix. Definitely, lots of old folks. Up scale who give you the haughty evil eye as you enter. But they are wussies and can be intimidated with a Sorry, your Majesty. One old football guy who got roaring drunk and relived his jockiness with loud profanity. Might be a TABC issue if he drove.

So it was fun - was it worth the big bucks - 50/50.

Fredericks is always soild food. Interesting French/Asian fusion and I've heard his place on NW Military Hwy is also quite good... I haven't had the gumption to drive into the burbs and deal with traffic in awhile.

Had another amazing cheapo and quickie lunch at Pho Cong Ly the other day. Can't go wrong with P19, extra noodle and extra tendon. Love their summer rolls. The waitstaff rocks my socks off.

Pho Cong Ly seems kind of "burby" to me(we live in Monticello Park) but I do get up there sometimes and will try it. Heard other good things about it.

We had lunch at House of Pho (Medical Center) Very good Pho and Bun bowls.

Pho Cong Ly is very good.

Fredericks- I went once and was underwhelmed by the food and utterly displeased with the wine selection. How can one have Asian fusion and not a single riesling or gewurtz on the list? Granted I have not been back in 2 years, but their list really needed to step-up from low-end supermarket wines to meet the level of food they were aiming for. It was clearly an afterthought.

Question: Is Old San Fran Steak House still open? The sign and restaurant are still lit. I thought it was closed.

Ate at the Koffee Kup in Hico, TX on 281 today. Ordered the jalapeno & cream cheese burger. Took two years off my life, but it just made my list of "must eats" anytime we travel up that way.
