Good eats

Houston is full of 'em. And, after dining at a wide selection since being here, so am I. And I couldn't be happier.

If you happen to be in the area, you've got to check out some favorites below:

Red Fish Seafood Grill: Tight location, but full of flavor. The entrees look impressive, but if I were you, I'd stick with the sushi. One roll feeds five. Or one really hungry lady. (Me.)

Churrascos: Yes, Sarah, that was chimichurri sauce on top. The steaks here are numbered in the top ten best American steaks. They bring a unique South American flair to the table and earn a special place on my palate.

Dario's American Bistro: The kind of place where servers put the napkin in your lap and never let your water glass near empty. The tuna steaks (rare) are Ryan's favorite. Not that he's ever ordered anything else there, but when you find something you like, why stray?

Chipotle: They're all around the US, but mmmm. We'll miss having one down the street.

Buffalo Wild Wings: Another national player, this place has yet to appear in Utah. A guy in Ryan's mission ate 75 of these bad boys in one sitting. Now those are some good wings.

Shipleys Donuts: Forget Krispy Kremes. These are the best glazed donuts I've ever had. They make 'em fresh, no cookie cutters needed. Oh, and don't miss the kolaches, especially if you've never heard of one.

Houston may have held the Fattest City title for a few consecutive years, but at least we got that way in style. Jo etvagyat!

You can always come to Vegas! We have Chipotle and Buffalo Wild Wings. They are always only six hours away...

I second Alexis... Chipotle and BWW are two favorites of mine as well, and I've got a room in Vegas with the Tingey's name on it if they want to come visit! (And both of these wonderful establishments are less than 10 minutes from my house!) Good reminder, I should go there more!

Thanks for the plug on Shipley's Donuts. It isn't often now that we go there (we only aspire to being the 2nd Fattest City), but when we get Donuts & Kolaches, there is no other place.
