And what's the deal with "sweet tea"? (Best said with Georgian women's accent. )
Growing up in TX we never had sweet tea. It was icetea or coldbeer. Both pronounced as single words. As you would not find either in some other form.
As in "it's quitten time I'm damn sure ready for a coldbeer."

Or from your waitress, "more icetea sugar?" (or "Hun"..as acceptable substitute probably depending on age differential).

Years ago I had occasion to visit a customer of the company I worked for to ascertain what the problem was they were having with the steel we supplied them. Anywho this place was just outside of Houston (Willbanks) and during the visit I had a couple of meals at a diner down the road and the menu I remember from then (30 + years ago) was that it ain't nowheres near what the OP has shown as the menu from Port Townsend Texas place. May have to drop in the place and check it out when we get off the Coho next summer. I find a lot of claimms by restraunts here on the left coast is based more in California Yuppie than actual authentic food styles.

I love Cajun, Texan and Eyetrallian but it has to be hot and spicey and served the same way. I may show up some day at a Texas campout and cook Eyetrallian for all y'all and thensome.

Sweet tea can only be prepared by first placing a case knife in the tea picture (keeps the glass tea pitcher from breaking), pour boiling hot water over loose tea leaves that are in a strainer and adding sugar to the picture before the tea cools. FYI...Tea bags can be substituted if you don't have a tea strainer or one of those little aluminum balls with a chain that you put tea leaves in.

Please help me some here, how can someone grow up in Texas and develops a "Georgian women's accent"?

Landbarge, I remember that it was always icetea, but that tea was sweet. And in my exile I used to make fun of the unenlightened folks outside of Texas that didn't know that tea was supposed to be sweet. Then I took my bride back to Texas for her first visit and found that heathen had taken over almost every eating place and you could not buy icetea with sugar already in it anymore.

Speaking of beverages:

Should bottled Coke with bags of peanuts be available or is that an elsewhere-in-the-South thing?

Can be found anywhere including Texas but most certainly in Hot 'Lanta.

We pronounced it more like "coalbeer" - the "d" is silent (like the "p" in swimming)

Sorry only in Dr Pepper with real sugar. And as kids we'd grab an (in Jerry Clower accent) ARE-SEE cola because it came in a bigger bottle in and metal tub chest filled with real ice. Bonus points for the different oz sizes of bottles.
For bonus points tales about church keys....

Case knife yep still have mine, black steel blade not that sissy stainless. We didn't need 42 things in a pocket knife, a two blade case knife did everything. Including electrical work. No longer recommend.

No Georgia accent here, must have heard when visiting there.
We had those round sugar jars on each table a little bigger than a coldbeer can with that little flapper lid on the chrome cover to pour in your icetea for those women folk that required it. Must have been too hot and humid where I lived to need that much sugar.

Extra points for why there was rice in the salt shaker...

It is Are-cee cola and peanuts. Other wise you drink Dr. Pepper for sodas. The other thing that goes with Are-cee cola is Moon Pies, but some folks like Pepsi-cola.

Gee is it hard to educate some of y'all.

Sorry too universal...

Points for the difference between Dinner and Supper.

Triple points for "Bar" in Bar-ditch.. (Pronounced Barr) It wasn't until later in life did I finally get this one after hearing it all my life.
As in "Go start up the tractor, Jimmy's run the truck off in the barr-ditch."

I know this one!

To absorb moisture and keep the salt from caking. Same reason for saltine crackers in the sugar shaker....you know, the one the boys used to loosen the lid on so the next innocent user would dump sugar all over the table.

I hasten to add that I'm sure no Texan boy ever did so, though...
