Went to Broiler House for a birthday dinner. Everything was great and the gluten free option (on almost everything) was a plus.

Never heard of Broiler House, I'll have to check it out.

I recently went to Smokey Mo's here in Stone Oak and picked up a variety of barbecue sandwiches for the family (brisket, turkey, chopped (which is brisket, turkey, and pork)). The sandwiches were very good. The barbecue sauce was a bit spicy which was fine by me but my youngest son noticed it after he ate some of the chopped barbecue by itself without the bread. He liked the sandwich though.

Restaurant week
Boiler House lunch- the oysters/grits were awesome. Only quibble is I recall that on previous visits servers were offering "taste" pours at the bar to help you decide on a BTG wine selection..
Tribecca dinner- Perfection!!! Zarzuela (sorta like a Spanish Cioppino) and tenderloin were amazing, great starter selection, panna cotta delicious also. Really excited to see how this place evolves with Brian West as exec chef!!

Bite restaurant on S. presa tonight.

Our table had three apps: lamb cigar, eggplant waffle, and some kind of lobster ceviche style dish. For entree, I ordered the beef medallion gauche dish. Although I am not a desert person, we ordered the chocolate blob cake to share. Can't complain about the food as it was good.

The service was somewhat lacking. Tea took way too long to be brought out. I asked for coffee at the end and the hipster waiter totally forgot because he was too busy chatting with his hipster buddies at the bar. Not a huge deal. Your drinks will be quickly brought out if you order alcohol though. I was the only one not drinking alcohol. Water was never refilled.

They seem to be trying too hard to be unique like having black colored toilet paper in the bathroom. My co worker's dish was brought out with the mussels in a bag labeled "dirty undies". Very odd.

Would I return? Doubt it.

I finally went to in and out today after a bike ride. It was pretty yummy. We got there like right at 11 so it wasn't crowded at the time but within about 15 minutes there was nowhere to sit and the drive thru line as we were leaving was extra long. I'd go back if it was early and I didn't have to wait in the extra long line.

My party thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Texas de Brazil Brazilian Steakhouse located at 313 E. Houston this evening. EVERYTHING was over the top. Each portion of meat was plentiful, tender, and very flavorful. The sides, salad and bread were fresh and also enjoyed by all. After spying another server demo the desert tray to a neighboring group, I made a mental note to leave a *little* room for dessert. I ended up doing a round robin with two others at the table as we sampled each other's desert. To sum up the visit in one word: Perfection. On second thought, is "meatgasm" a word?? The service was prompt and attentive and had no problems accommodating our party of 10--even though there were several other parties our size. By the time we left every table was occupied.
As a frequent connoisseur of steak, the bar has been raised and Texas de Brazil finds itself near the top of the list.

Steak & Shake in Alamo Ranch. Had the portabella swiss burger. It was fabulous. If I hadn't been so full after I ate it I would have ordered another it was so good.
