I've never understood why anybody would watch Oprah. :crazy:
As for White Castle, true, they are not in Texas yet. But their belly bombers are in the frozen food section at H-E-B and other supermarkets. I can eat a box (6) for supper easily. Can't wait to see what they taste like at an actual White Castle.
Nothing like contributing to a 6 year old thread.
Bob's grill down here in Robinson, Texas. Locally owned and only open from 11 AM to 2 PM. Bob even puts the buns in the grease after the burger is cooked to slop up all the good stuff and will then slather the buns in mayo and serve on a paper plate. You ought to see how he cooks the fries!
We have a local chain here called Milos that serves an open face burger covered in gravy. Their sweet tea is over-the-top sweet, sold as Southern tea (even sold by the jug at the grocers), but most of us avoid it for fear of instant diabetes.
Making some burgers tonight with horseradish on onion kaiser rolls. Arugula salad dressed in olive oil and lemon as a side. Lots of flavor! I have two rows of arugula in the garden so I'm eating lots of that these days.
I've never tried McDonalds outside the U.S. However, there are regional differences within the U.S. In the South where I live, all McD's offer ham biscuits, thin salty crispy ham on a biscuit with egg (and cheese) if you want it. I asked for it at a McD's up North and they looked totally mystified, and I saw, sure enough, it wasn't on the menu. Some of the McD franchises work at doing localized decor, within McD's interior design specs. Some of it is carried off pretty well. I do like McD's for the occasional cheap breakfast, and their coffee is surprisingly good, a little better to my taste than the standard Starbucks, though you can't get the fancier coffee drinks.
