While in Texas during our shoot we went to dinner at a place called Andy's. While there were many choices available, we decided to choose a restaurant we thought would truly exemplify the Texas experience. Neither Cameron or I are seafood fans...so we thought a great Texas steak would really hit the spot. We walked into the restaurant and were greeted by a very nice server who told us to sit anywhere. When she came to take our drink order I asked for a Diet Coke and a Dr. Pepper for Cameron. She leaned over and with the thickest Texan accent said, "You have to pay $1.99 for each drink....." I said, "That's fine." She leaned over even more and said, "Are you sure....the iced tea has free refills....." While I appreciated her concern for my finances I found this pretty funny. I told her she was very sweet but that we would have no problem ordering refills if necessary.
We then moved on to the food order....we were prepared for a steak when the server insisted on their famous fried chicken steak. She said it was famous across the US. After some deliberation we went with her recommendation. The first picture below is just before Cameron and I dove into the steak...the last picture below is how much we finished of the steak...or didn't finish of the steak. I believe the steak is famous....but not necessarily because it tastes good...We filled up on the salad bar and decided we would have to get a bite to eat a little bit later to make up for the meal. I gladly paid the bill because of the kindness of the server and because we ordered the food....we just didn't like it. The food wasn't worth the money....but the experience sure was.
