    One thing I love is going to a new hole in the wall resturant when I travel. Problem is they are hard to find. So I want to start this thread for everyone to post their favorite little fajita place or the best burger joint in their city.

    To keep it simple try posting in this format:

    Resturaunt Name:
    Kind of Food:
    Location: (it can be directions or an address)
    What you like about it: (the service or a certain dish, give us a good discription of why it's the place to go)

    Bryan:

    Square One
    Italian
    Downtown Bryan, they have Christmas lights up year round.
    GREAT Italian food (traditional Italian food, fresh, etc). Best place for valentine's day. Great wine as well. Only 10 tables in the entire place.

    College Station:

    Chicken Oil. J. Cody's BBQ. Lane's. Harvey Washbanger's. Dixie Chicken. Fitzwilly's.

    Welborn:

    Hullabaloo Diner
    Home cookin'
    It's wellborn. Go to wellborn and if you miss the diner on the side of the road (there are only like 3 roads and it's the main one), you don't deserve to go.

    Snook:

    Sodalek's
    Steak. That's it.
    Same as Hullabaloo. Go to Snook from College Station, can't miss it.

    Why you should eat there?

    Brenham:

    The Southern Flyer Diner (in the Brenham airport)
    50's cafe. Waitresses dress up like they did in a soda shop from the 50s. 50s jukebox included.

    Resturaunt Name: DeMarias Bar-B-Q
    Kind of Food: Bar-B-Q
    Location: (it can be directions or an address) 1000 Elm Street, Waco, TX. Exit I-35 at MLK Parkway. Go North on MLK Parkway over the overpass and turn right at the 2nd light on Elm. It'll be about 10 blocks down on your left.
    What you like about it: (the service or a certain dish, give us a good discription of why it's the place to go) It's all good, but they only serve lunch. It was ranked by Texas Monthly as one of Texas' top bar-b-q spots, and serves it on butcher paper. Don't forget to get your gravy too.

    Simply the best crawfish and shrimp. If you don't get there early, you may have to wait a while. Bring your own beer and they provide coolers.

    Restaurant Name: Blue Moon BBQ
    Kind of Food:
    BBQ
    Location:
    B-5, Tx On the corner of OSR and FM 1940 in Robertson County between Normangee and Wheelock
    What you like about it:
    They have the best BBQ I've ever had. I have travelled alot and and had BBQ from I35 all the way to Lousianna. Blue Moon tops them all. They cook on a REAL Pit, not a comercial smoker thingy. There are four small tables set up in a little Morgan building where you can dine in. Most folks just take it to go. They are only open Friday - Sunday from 11:00 till they run out (BBQ) and Thursday nights for Prime Rib. But please be WARNED, when you eeat here you will want to slap a loved one.

    Makes me want some now.

    Meers Store: Located at Meers, OK just outside of the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. It was rated as one of the top 5 burgers in the country by Bon Apetit Magazine. www.meersstore.com They serve a few different burgers all made with longhorn beef and have added BBQ to the menu which is also good. A great place for some history of the area. It is also a seismic station still in use by USGS.
