We stopped off at Threadgill's in Austin - classic Texas chow. Fun place - decorated with lots of retro neon signs rescued from businesses that had gone out of business.
Everybody enjoyed the hearty eats - I got the Thursday special - the chicken and dumplings.
My father tried chicken fried steak for the first time - and enjoyed it. For you Yankees, chicken fried steak is breaded and deep-fried steak. Relax - it's not that bad. It's actually pretty good, especially when they serve it with a white gravy.
Fun place - worth stopping at if it's convenient.
