Misc. ramblings...
 
The beef rib photo is only missing a broken bench seat on a picnic table...that would complete the picture!
 
I wish Apple Pan serviced their neon...such a beautiful sign, hate seeing half dark.
 
In-N-Out - remember spending time with the Sultan at In-N-Out, one of his favorites!
 
Did you Get It at Porky's?
 
To Live and Pie...our shared epitaph! 
 
Snookies...that was some wild ****...nothing more to say!!!

We found it at a local seafood restaurant, but why they put a pig sign in the window is beyond me.

Hey! The cool neon pics have all disappeared! They were there earlier, but now they're showing up as busted links and don't show. Same with all the burger and barbecue pics.

Cliff,
 
2017 was a stellar year for your RoadFooding. No wonder you don't have time for trip reports anymore (you may consider outsourcing those duties to the very efficient ChiBears15).
 
You are making me jealous.
 
Jim

I have seen you eat some interesting things (was that beef hearts?), but you draw the line on that one, eh?

Cliff, you get out at night a lot!  I'm in before the neon gets lit!
 
Please tell me about the machaca at Lucy's in El Paso.
 
I've had two types of machaca. Both are shredded dry beef with onions and peppers and sometimes tomatoes...  one with eggs and the other without. 
 
Yours looks like a cheese sauce which I've never had.
 
TIA!
