  • I actually used for the first time two weeks ago. I guess I never paid much attention to that banner that's been on the front page for a while now.  Probably was because if I see anything with the word "promotion" near it and I tend to stay away. My bad.

    I think it is a great service and look forward to the addition of more restaurants.

    One question: Is there a way we can select restaurants by city? Maybe the option is there and I just don't see it, like a drop down where you can select Victoria, Cuero, Yoakum, etc.

    I don't use the phone book much either. If I need to look up a number I'll usually use the Internet on my phone or look it up online at home.

  • Mr. Cobler - I guess I am a throwback, but I DO still use the phone book, both yellow and white pages, as much or even more than I used to. I guess some habits are just hard to break away from. I know I haven't been out to eat in so long, I don't even know what is out there. I have heard a lot of favorable talk about Fat Albert's in Yoakum, a new BBQ place, and they have live music, usually on weekends. I have only had a chopped beef sandwich from there and can tell you the meat was very tender and flavorful, like it had been smoked and babied for a couple of days on the pit. Some coworkers said the other meats are very good, and the side dishes, like corn casserole, are to die for. When I get the chance, I intend to check them out more thoroughly myself. They are also open on Sundays, a rarity in Yoakum. I know Yoakum could definitely use a good eating establishment. I really cannot tell you when there has ever been one worth a flip in this town....maybe now there is. If Fat Albert's is all that, I hope they stick around.
