There is a reason the Lone Ranger was not set in Delaware

Not to offend any of my brothers in the great Northeast.....or is Delaware by Oregon?........I don't think anyone knows for sure. Anyhow, i'm sure it's a fine place but they do not serve "The Texas Platter" as the fine watering hole in my neighborhood does. No, there is no Delaware platter, or Maine platter or (insert charming town on eastern seaboard here) platter. It's the @#!*% Texas platter.

On said platter is:
 
2 (count em) chicken fried smoked spare ribs (points off for not being beef ribs)
6 0z of smoked, chicken fried prime ribeye
about the same amount of chicken fried chicken

I think you are seeing a pattern here- chicken fried. They just don't do that sh*t in Delaware, and I think it's wrong not to do it.

Actually it was all pretty @#!*% good and the ribeye and ribs were killer with the smoke. Think I'll try that some time soon.

Carry on and happy Friday. And I'm sorry if I offended anyone from Delaware......wherever you may be.

Hi-Ho Silver.....away!

  • No, but you offended this Texan.  Real chicken fried steak is done ONLY with round steak, beat to smithereens with a mallet, then tenderized more.  None of this "prime ribeye" crap.  X_X

    and pork ribs too. I think their heart was in the right place but execution was a little off.

    Any fried pickles at least? Pearl?

    One last question... did they call their salsa "picante sauce'? :)

    Ah, but the clambakes and crab boils in Austin aren't too much to write home about, either...   :P
