Hi Witsend,

Is the Cyprus Creek Cafe still open in Wimberley? I remember decent food with an interesting atmosphere.

Hello to Ben and Molly. Molly might not know it but Ben bought an AS from me, a really rough one. Agree about the Machine Shed and Ted Drewes (always a line there).

What we really need here in the QC is meals on wheels, rail that is. I have fond memories of times spent in the Butterworth diner and Big Ben on the RI Lines.

We haven't gotten to hit the road yet cause we are in the process of buying our Argosy but just some spots I know from being a local and from my many trips to Mobile and St. Augustine:

Panama City, FL - Hunt's Oyster Bar (Beck Ave) or Glenn's BBQ (old Business 98 Papermill Curve)
Panama City Beach, FL - Schooners (Thomas Drive)
Mobile, AL - Wintzell's (downtown don't know the name of the street)
St. Augustine, FL - A1A (it is a little pricey but they have their own brewery and it's located on A1A)

Do you worship at the shrine of the Green and the Red?

Then Armijos in Socorro, NM is the absolute best we've found anywhere - especially the green. We'll go 50 miles outta our way for it. South end of town on the main drag.

Save some for me; we're headed that way next week!

That's funny...actually, that was one of the purchases he did tell me about. We thought we would use some parts off it but ended up selling the trailer we thought we needed parts for and then sold the one we bought from you.

The Big Ben is in the family again, and I'll have to make sure Ben reads this thread.

He never lets me stop at Lagomarcino's in Moline for the soup and candy. But he never misses a trip to Harris Pizza...I keep telling him he needs to bring home several frozen pizzas from Harris to keep on hand here in St. Louis.

Where to start? If you're going through Okarche, Ok. Eischen's is the place for fried chicken...a lot of fried chicken. OKC has Leo's BBQ (may the fat man rest in peace). Santa Fe, Bobcat Grill for burgers. Scottsdale, Az. Xtapa Joe's or the Tepee in Phoenix for the Tex-Mex that reminds me of El Chorrito back in younger days in OKC. Sedona, Az. you've got to try and get into the Garlands Lodge for a 5 course dinner. Platoro, Co. Skyline Lodge for some more burger fix...it's the only burger for miles around and it sure tasted good, but that was probably due to the fact that I was starving at high altitude. Cave Creek, Az. Harold's on the Highway. Dang, I'm gettin' hungry!

But the best pulled pork, spare ribs, beef brisket, hot links and hickory smoked meatloaf with sides of Cowbro beans, potato salad, and Texas toast can be had in the backyard of a little dive off Greenway and Tatum in Phx. Bring your guitars and your best singin' voice, 'cause, Nobody Eats 'Til You Sing The Blues.

Lynn - We did the 4-Corners/Monument Vally road trip last summer. We stopped in Mexican Hat and I got the Navajo taco at the Trading Post. It was something else! It was huge! I couldn't finish it. It was really good too.

If you're ever down this way, Hacienda Express on Rt550 (aka Hwy 44) in Bernalillo has a decent Navajo taco. They also have a Burrito Fry that is guarenteed to clog any and every artery in your body. It's a huge chicken and bean burrito with a huge order of fries slathered with green chile and cheese.

The Sycamore Drive-In is one of our favorite places and are we ever lucky because it is just 2 miles from our house! Well worth a stop from anywhere; as featured in Roadfood.com and the Food Network-

Another favorite is Bob's Barbecue, Creedmoor, NC. We haven't been there since we left the East Coast but it was the best Carolina pork barbecue that I've ever had!

Oh, every time we're down that direction, we wind up staying at my relatives' place down in Los Lunas. Alas, they seem to have somewhat different taste than we do: Every time we go to a restaurant with them, it's ok stuff, but hardly anything to get excited about. Some day we need to go to Albuquerque and not tell them that we're around.

Hey, though, if you're up in Taos country, the locals always hit either Michael's Kitchen (good breakfasts!) or Guadalajara Grill (the one on the north side).

Thumbs up Mad Greek!

If you are headed into Death Valley from the south (west of Las Vegas, NV), you can find a huge menu to choose from at the Mad Greek Cafe, a large blue building at the intersection of Hwy 127 (the route leading into DV) and Baker Blvd. The prices are very reasonable, fast service, and food choices from Mexico, Asia, the Middle East, etc. A favorite with truckers, too.

Yup - been to Michaels many times! We used to stay at the Fechin Inn on our Taos visits - now they turned it into something else! We miss it! but... after the A/S arrives in May we'll be seeing Northern NM in a different way.

Los Lunas - that's a whole 'nuther world!

Los Lunas, Taos

Yeah, Los Lunas is a strange mixture of nuevo-development and old valley culture. (As a kid in the 50s, we lived just north of there in Pajarito, just a farm community back then.)

Taos still has some nice places in spite of the development money pouring in from who-knows-where. If you REALLY want to see the locals, then you go to the Taoseno on a Friday afternoon for the dance social. (Food there is fair.)
