Celebrating the Boston Texas

After signing up for the 2010 Boston Marathon, I knew right away where I wanted to celebrate. Being a Travel Channel and Food TV fan, there was no place else to go but Texas and reconnect with the carnivore in me. I decided to retrace some of the Man v. Food locales. Namely...

Salt Lick - best bbq I've had to date
Lulu's - chicken fried steak and cinnamon roll as big as my head
Chunky's - home of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" burger
Big Lou's - barbecue brisket pizza. Ended up skipping.

Some photos of the trip...
Before diving in to the meat, we had to experience at least one fine dining experience on the riverwalk. I got an unexpected treat. From Biga's on the Riverwalk, quite possibly the best dessert I have ever experienced - sticky toffee pudding on english cream.

After spending the following day at Schlitterbahn and meeting up with our friends, we went to Salt Lick in Driftwood.

If you're ever in Austin or San Antonio, you CAN NOT skip this place. I enjoyed it so much that I ate enough to keep me burping the flavor for 36 hours.

With the ribs still in my stomach, we went to Lulu's the following day to try supposedly the best chicken fried steak in San Antonio and a giant cinnamon roll.

Nope, I did not finish it.
It didn't help that I finished off most of the cheese fries at the top left of the plate.

And finally, the giant cinnamon roll.
