As mentioned in a previous post, I'm coming to Texas (San Antonio/Austin/Fredericksburg) next week. For some reason, I've got it in my head to eat rattlesnake. I've done a lot of searching, and can only come up with two options. 1. Hudson's on the Bend...rattlesnake cakes. While the menu sounds really good, I'm just not interested in paying those prices. The only other option I can find is a lunch truck in Austin called Wurst Tex. They offer a sausage called the Predator/Prey; rattlesnake and rabbit. While this doesn't sound bad, I'd really like to find a place that does 'snake very simply...maybe grilled, or even deep-fried; something where I can get an idea of what rattlesnake actually tastes like, not with a handful of spices and/or breadcrumbs added. I'll get the sausage if I can't find any other options, but I'm afraid that, at best, all I'll be able to say is that I've eaten 'snake, not that I know what it tastes like. Does anyone have any suggestions?
