When I was little, we used to go see my great-grandmother every weekend. She lived in a neighboring town about 35 miles away, which was on the other side of the earth as far as my parents were concerned. Anyway, we always stopped at this little diner sometime during the trip. It isn’t there anymore but I do like to find out of the way diners like this and let other people know that sometimes the best meals can be found where you least expect it.
One example is the Redwater Diner in Redwater, Texas. Now, there isn’t much to be found in Redwater. There is a nice school, a few small stores, and a popular gymastics arena. In fact, taking my daughter to gymnastics was the reason for my very first stop at the Diner.
We decided last night to go back and see if we could get a decent meal.
There weren’t a lot of people dining in, but the drive through was busy the whole time we were there.
My daughter and husband are both chicken fried steak fanatics.
She always gets fried okra.
In an effort to be healthy, he a salad as a side.
I got the chef salad and it was more than I could eat. In fact, they both tried to finish it out.
Everyone was happy with their meal and the best part? They are the most reasonably priced place around. My chef salad was $4.50. Yes. It was. All together, with drinks and everything, our bill was $20. Anyone who knows me knows that I am all about getting the most for my money. I certainly think we did tonight.
