Barbecue Inn in Houston, Texas
Despite the name of this place, barbecue was the last thing on my mind. Instead, I came here because I was after another Texan specialty: chicken fried steak. And this place was supposed to do a pretty good one, so I made sure to stop here for dinner after getting off that flight from Austin (BTW, TSA Pre✓ is awesome!).
It turned out to be a very old place, which was encouraging, as I figured that they had to be doing something right. Unfortunately, that probably got my expectations a bit too high, as I was kinda let down by this thing when it finally came out. Sure, I kinda liked that crispy batter, but at the end of the day, it was just deep fried beef.
Apparently these guys do a good job of fried chicken though, so maybe I should have gotten that instead. Or maybe some of that catfish that I saw on the menu. Well, at least I liked the fries that came with this thing; they were so fresh that I finished it all off.
