Uh Rusty, I'm feeling a Goodson's or Mels run this weekend for a good chicken fried and some black-eyed peas and smashed 'taters.

Being a real Texan, that menu really sucks. Might be "yuppy" Texan but not the real stuff. Like said, no chicken fried steak, no mention of gravy, french rolls, all add up to fake food.

BTW, in Port Townsend, try Dos Okies for BBQ. There used to be another Q joint there but not sure if it is still there.

Not Texan. I'm a 5th generation Texan and Forced to only small visits as I married outside my Country (TEXAS). Most of what I saw was Yankee food or cajin. sorry, Try Babe's they have great chicken fried steak with white creamy goodness over the top; I've found that I have to be in Texas or my Mom has to visit me in order to get Texas food.

We had a "Texas Style" resturant by the house a few years ago that had a menu similar to that, claiming his family was from "east of Houston". Read: Louisiana!

Having spent lots o' time all over Texas on business (in San Antoin' this week) and have nothing to do at night but sample BBQ .. I challenged him on the menu, and he finally admitted grandmma was a Cajun convert. Texas is slow smoke, dry rub, and sause on the side. Don't think the meat matters, but Brisket seems to be the one.

Thanks for all the "feed"back, folks...

Question:

One of the things on the P.T restaurant's menu is fried chicken served ON waffles with maple syrup. Is that a for-real Texas thing?

That ain't Texas Cookin, Kidney beans in Chili, Hush puppeis covered in maple syrup, no Chicken fried steak. Smoked gouda cheese on Macaroni,Prawns, hell,I don't think you can even find prawns down here. 'sides it don't even sound all that good.Just come on down here, find a County seat, any county seat. There will be a cafe on the courthouse square, go in and order a chicken fried steak, if it doesn't melt in your mouth,hang over the side of the plate, come covered in cream gravy with big flakes of black pepper, go out to your rig, & recheck your map,cause you ain't in Texas!

Don't forget Pecan Pie, Coconut Cream Pie & Blue Bell ice cream. Our Blue Bell is made here in OK. Don't tell the Texans that.

How could I have forgotten Pecan pie & Blue Bell, I live just off Pecan Bayou. No self respectin' cafe would be without them. I don't mind Blue Bell having a plant north of the Red River, part of Texas is north of the Red too.

Where did you see a claim of "Texas style food" at Addie Mae's Southern Kitchen?
All I see called "Texas" on the menu are Wings and Toast.
I'm from Wisconsin and IMO, most of the offerings at Addie Mae's are most certainly "southern". lol

You guys are killing me. I'm reading this post while sipping broth and prepping for a colonoscophy tomorrow morning.

We had lunch at Mels a few weeks ago and watched as three customers attempted to eat the Mel Burger. They all failed but I did make one observation-each one was a skinny as a rail little guy.

The first item I noticed on the "it ain't really Texan food menu" was hush puppies served with "cajun maple syrup". Thats wrong, just plain wrong. You might have some butter on a hush puppy but not "cajun maple syrup". Besides, what the the heck is "cajun maple syrup"? There isn't a sugar maple tree within 500 miles of Louisiana.

Ken, you get a Goodsons run together and we'll be there.

On a Jalapeno Burger the jalapenos are not sauteed. They are usually fresh. Agree with all the other comments. This is not Texas cooking.

The story as circulating locally and retold by the waitress at the restaurant is that the chef/owner's Texas Grandma is the "Addie Mae" of the restaurant name and he learned the recipes at her knee...

From some of the reactions from Texans here it sounds like he should have paid a little more attention!

I think the "vegetarian red beans and rice" bothers me the most- I'm almost afraid to ask if they're using the small red beans or the same kidney beans they (wrongly, right?) are putting in the chili...
