A Small Amount of Tastiness

You may have noticed that this blog’s tag line is “searching for all things tasty and delicious.” You may have also noticed we really haven’t mentioned food yet. We are obviously interpreting this tag line many ways, since we haven’t even mentioned food yet. I’m working on an “Eating and Drinking through Austin” post, but other than that, there hasn’t been much to write home about. The past six days on the road have been riddled with fast food and highway chain restaurants, the highlight being Hooters. But there were a few exceptions along the way.

Crawfish Town USA
Located off of I-10 in Henderson, LA, this place is close to Brett’s heart. If we’re in the area, it’s where we stop for Louisiana goodness, specifically live boiled crawfish. Unfortunately, crawfish season has passed, but I had some delicious local blue point crabs and Brett had a yummy fried shrimp poboy. Wish we had taken some photos of the actual food.

Country Fixins Barbeque Restaurant (Pretty sure there’s no web site)
If you ever find yourself in Sumter, SC (which you probably won’t unless, like us, you’re visiting friends stationed at Shaw Air Force Base) celebrate southern cooking at Country Fixins Barbeque Restaurant. For roughly $8 per person, you can help yourself to endless fried chicken, pulled pork, grits, mac & cheese, hush puppies, braised greens, corn on the cob and numerous other stick-to-your-rib dishes. It wasn’t the best food I’ve ever had, but it was perfect for the location. And the fried chicken was awesome. The best part was the 1980s limo in front and the “French” decor lining the walls. Once again, I wish I took I took more pics.
