Had our final meal in Scottsdale tonight. Too hot (103)to negotiate a trip to one of the many places on our list of "to eats." Going into Phoenix was simply not an option for us. So, we stayed close to our hotel.

Incidently, a really reasonable and good hotel, perfectly located in Scottsdale...the Holiday Inn and Suites Hotel at 3131 Nr. Scottsdale Rd.

Anyway, being fans of Houston's, we decided to try this other concept of their's. Pretty much the same decor and same terrific service.

I had their BBQ Beef ribs and my wife had the salmon. both came with their "famous" mashed potatoes. I had a great slaw with peanuts and my wife's side was a cucumber/jalapeno/avacodo cold salad. Very interesting. The food was good, but I much prefer pork ribs. We shared a pretty good version of banana cream pie, but not as good as the BuckHead diner's version in Atlanta.

We left happy.
