El Nopalito's, New Braunfels

Before getting back on the road this past weekend, decided on a hearty breakfast from El Nopalito's Restaurant in New Braunfels, Texas.  This one is store number three located on FM 306.  Better parking than the one we normally go to when in the area.  Went with the Carne Guisada Breakfast Plate and a Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Taco on the side.  Throw in lots of salsa and chips, end result... left "stuffed"!

Grist Mill, Gruene, Texas

Made a stop last night in Gruene to enjoy a dinner at a local favorite... the Grist Mill.  We like this restaurant, even when it is busy, because it is right next to Gruene Hall so we can enjoy some good tunes while we wait for our table.  Ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and left with a satisfied appetite!  Like the proportion of servings; like the Chicken Fried Steak; gravy has a hint of sweetness that we are okay with.  Also, ordered a Caesar Salad that is mixed with Pico De Gallo; liked it as well!

Oma's Haus, New Braunfels, Texas

Stopped at Oma's Haus for dinner the other night.  Located in New Braunsfels just off Highway 35.  Had been here several times in the past.  What we recall are the entrees tend to on the large serving size.  Ordered a Sampler Appetizer of fried mushroom, green beans, cheese, and other things that tasted good.  Then, went with the Bratwurst Dinner and the Jaeger Schnitzel.  All tasted good!

Ruggeri's Ristorante - McKinney, Texas

Tried a new place for Italian Food. This one is located in downtown McKinney.  It is Ruggeri's Ristorante.  Outstanding food, outstanding service,... pricey but tasty meals were enjoyed!  Went with a Seafood Linguine and Minestrone Soup;  others went with Chicken Marsala!  Also, had Bruscheta for appetizers.  Will be back to enjoy the food and service.

Churchill's Pub - McKinney, Texas

Was in the mood for some wine and spirits.  Decided on a local pub in our area.  Churchill's Pub located in downtown McKinney.  Liked the upstairs atmosphere with lots to drink and even went with a round of darts!  For food, how about Chips and Queso and Fish and Chips!

Choctaw Casino's Butterfield Buffet

More fun at the slots at Choctaw Casino.  Too bad we did not win big.  Too bad we did not break even.  At least we did win out on the Butterfield Buffet.  Tasty food selection at a low price with your Players Club Card.  This time, chose the Zesty Jerked Chicken, Fried Rice, Chinese Vegetables, Crab Wonton, Egg Roll, and the Egg Drop Soup.  Tasty meal, even better that it is all you can eat!  So, went back for seconds!
