I have been reading your boards so I don't overdo the redundancy , but I still need some up to date info: I will be staying in the northwest area near Willowbrook but I am mobile and like any good chowhound ready to drive if need be,for some good grub. Saturday night is the big family night Dinner. I was originally thinking Steakhouse, We have Flemings out here and that seems to be the level of some of the steakhouses I have looked up: Pappas, Vic and Anthony's, Perry's Steak house etc. If we do choose the steak route I want to find the one which gives Bang for your buck , don't really want to go the total high end if I can help it . the other option is Hugos Mexican for Saturday night , sounds like a must visit place.. other than that I don't know what kind of time I will have but I would love some Great casual Tex Mex ..........I am Looking at Gatlins, The brisket house or Rudys for BBQ ..., a great place for some pecan Pie. and maybe a rock solid soul food joint and just a plain old fashioned Great Cheeseburger . sheeesh a pretty touristy list I know but the rest we can get out here in LA.
