We tried the Furr's Fresh on 151 and we will not be going back. The food was bland even for buffet food. Tables were not wiped down well and we had to beg for our drinks. I have no idea why this place is so packed all the time. I felt like I was surrounded by the people of Walmart, ugh.

Then again, there's a growing list of places(Midi, Tangere) in this town that closed before I ever got around to checking out.
On Bliss, excellent, as long as you're not vegetarian. Portions are small, which is to be expected and generally fine. Presentation is incredible. Ambiance superb. non-veg options mostly excellent. there is some hit and miss, but mostly worth it.

for veg - there's just very limited on offer, and what is is kind of pathetic, honestly. Definitely worth a visit. That it is a hop, skip, and jump for me to visit - literally - helps

Went to Drews for lunch. Very pricey but a great Reuben. It's a destination lunch as compared to a work lunch. Service was quite competent. I will try again when in the mode for a fancy lunch.

The Furr's on southside (zarzamora st and 410) has the best salad buffet bar of any place I have been to, but I hate most of their hot food items.

The chicken & waffles currently being touted by Jim's restaurants should be avoided. Not only was it served with maple syrup you get two smallish pieces of fried chicken fillets and four small pieces of waffle. The kicker... $7.99. (Maple syrup ??? Get a rope.) Chicken gravy all the way !!! Gag !!

Nope, maple syrup is the authentic, soul food way to serve chicken and waffles. I've seen a couple of shows on the Food Network that featured restaurants where it has been served for years that serve it this way. Wikipedia agrees that butter and syrup is the norm and adds: "A version of this dish mostly known within areas that have Pennsylvania Dutch influences consists of a plain waffle with pulled, stewed chicken on top, covered in gravy." So it sounds like you need to go to Pennsylvania for this.

I did chicken and waffles, with butter and syrup once at IHOP. Once was enough. It was interesting, but not something I would ever crave.

Just FYI if you ever wanted to try RoMo's: they have a sweet groupon that's available through today. I love, love, love RoMo's!

SA is lacking in both Udon and Ramen shops. Yummi used to make a very solid version of each, but discontinued the Ramen. If they still have the udon it was good, but only 1 option. The other choice in town is Little Nikki's Tokyo Inn. Their noodles are okay, but not NYC, LA, or even Houston.

I have eaten chicken & waffles coast to coast (Sylvia's and Roscoe's) and have never heard of gravy being used. That doesn't even make sense for the dish.
