I saw a thread similar to this one on the San Antonio forum, and thought it was a neat idea!

Post the last restaurant you ate at. You can put a few comments about the place if you want.

Yesterday, we ate at Cracker Barrel along the access road between Weber and Everhart, off of SPID.

Good food. Decent prices. Pretty fast service (4 meals delivered to our table within 20 minutes!). We ate there in the evening, and they serve breakfast all day, along with their evening foods. I ate the Grandpa Breakfast (2 eggs, grits, hashbrown casserole, country fried steak, biscuits/gravy). It actually wasn't too busy, although the cashier was having problems when we were trying to pay out (the waitstaff doesn't take the money like other restaurants).

It has a neat little store on the side (typical with all Cracker Barrel restaurants). My kids loved looking at all the toys and overpriced trinkets when we were leaving.

Charlotte Plummer Seafare Restaurant Dining on the water at Charlotte Plummers in Fulton, Texas.

They have a great salad bar, tortilla soup and fresh shrimp. Dining rooms have a view over the shrimp boats in Fulton Harbor.

My mother & I just got back from Panjos Pizza, a place that we used to enjoy back in the old days (and I mean "old" days) when . The wait was long, but enjoyable and the pizza was very good.

I have only visited CC, and am hoping to move there. The last thing I ate there was a pizza from Panjo's and although I liked the atmosphere, and the staff was friendly, I found the pizza to be just average.

Yesterday evening, I ate at Bill Millers BBQ in the 5 Points area (off of I-69/Hwy 77 in the Calallen area). I have eaten there several times in the past. Love trying to get their "specials" as they are about to close the restaurant... you can usually get a pretty good deal!!!

The Tango Tea Room on Water Street. It's a vegan place and it's uh, very vegan in there, though there are dishes with real meat.

I took a chance on the chicken salad sandwich, and it was the best damn chicken salad sandwich I ever had. It's like they knew how I liked it better than I did. We also had some kind of mango coconut tea (I forget the name) and it was excellent.

Their food is best for those looking for a nice light lunch. I would also recommend it to any tea fan!

Katz 21, my favorite restaurant in Corpus! Pricey, but I like the classy, low key vibe and the steaks are wonderful, well seasoned and cooked right. Their desserts are delicious as well. The cheesecake slice is massive and the best I've ever had.

Russo's at Staples and Saratoga. Not very impressive--high prices for very average Italian food. Give me Luciano's at 6 Points any time.
