Stop taking pictures of your food at restaurants. God damn foodies.

This is different from serving beef as well as pork and chicken.

9$ hummus plates- nothing but humus and a few pieces of pita bread for 9 bucks. I understand that to some degree you're paying for atmosphere et cetera, but humus takes 10 minutes to make tops, and arranging pita bread on a plate isn't anything special , a price that high is garbage.

Well, this is wrong too. It's the exclusionary extremism I object to. Let a thousand flowers bloom, I say. The BBQ tent is big enough for all of God's tasty beasts (and poultry).

Stop using the word foodie goddamnit.



Alright, to prove Edina wrong once again (never gets old), I will search out Texas barbecue tomorrow. So someone post me a place to stop at along I-40. Preferably not very far off I-40 plz, as I don't want to take too long just to prove that shithead wrong.
Also, since Oklahoma City is MfP's old stomping grounds, if there is a good TX BBQ place there, I'd stop too.

Depends on your route, but if you're taking I-40 all the way to Ft. Smith, AR and points East Wild Horse Mountain Barbeque is just a couple of miles south of I-40 on US Hwy 59 in Sallisaw, OK. Best Barbeque in the state...or it was the last time I ate there many years ago. Short of that it's been too many years for me to know a good place. Come to Dallas and you can have the real thing.

Shit. Taking I40 til OKC and then shooting north on 44. Oh well, I'm sure somewhere around Amarillo will have a smokehouse on the side of the road. I just am really in the mood for brisket. I'll definitely make it to Dallas someday. I hope, at least. If this was a leisurely trip, I'd have gone to Vegas, Tucson, Dallas, and Houston. But I'm so goddamn sick of this car. 6 days in the car with two more to go is just insane.

There's a lot of brisket to be had along I44 in Missouri.

In truth I can't remember the last time it happened since I mostly cook for people, and not the other way around. Regardless, claiming that you're allergic seems more polite than telling them you'll start gagging if you ear their food.

This shit pisses me off so much. It is to the point that whenever I move or switch doctors I have to spend 10 minutes confirming to them that yes, I do actually have a goddamn food allergy, and yes, that means anafuckingphylaxis, and yes here is my Epi script from my last doctor, and yes, when I eat that food, it causes me to DIE.


I have only mentioned my food allergy at a restaurant once. . . they didn't list the stuff in the menu, but it was really fucking obvious when it arrived. I had a discussion with the manager about that one. Aside from the food allergy, it was a HUGE change to the character of the dish described in the menu. I simply asked that it be struck from my tab and returned to the kitchen.

I've developed food allergies in my late teens and can cosign your sentiments. It sucks getting your dinner and then finding out there is some ingredient that wasn't listed in your dish that you are allergic to, and in turn, have to send it back. Now if I'm out to dinner I let the waiter know of my food allergies and ask if theres anything that I should know about the dish before ordering. Better safe then sorry since I never carry an epi-pen with me.

not really a BBQ fanatic because I grew up with vegetarian parents and so I never had BBQ until I was like 16, so I can't be of much help I guess. As a high schooler in that area, I worked at a steak house, nothing of note really, but we had a wood-fired grill in the middle of the dining room floor, and a huge smoker out back, and brisket was really popular. Half the people came in for steaks and half came in for BBQ, and beef was definitely on the menu. Cutting the fat off those fuckers was pretty gross, but fascinatingly fun too.
It's too bad you can't swing up to Kansas City and take I70 to St. Louis on out, because I know KC has some notable BBQ that would be worth the detour, at least 3 or 4 famous spots.

Please share! I'll be passing through Missouri on 1-70 to Kansas City in a couple weeks and I could use the tips. For St Louis too if anyone has them, or anywhere along I-35 from KC to Oklahoma City. (then 40 west pretty much all the way, but I guess kwilk already covered that with his questions).

Also Kwilk - let us (me) know if you find anything especially good around Amarillo. Thanks!
