We ate at Sams's one nite and the buffet was pretty good, with lots of choices better than most. NP you are thinking about Giberto's, just north of Sam's I think.
Next nite we ate where the counter girl at the hotel suggested...El Toro. Food was good to better than average on some items, but a little spendy...which I thought was strange as the service left me waiting several times...to take an order - food delivered fresh & hot...but took forever to get the check so we could go "home" and argue about what we'd seen from the Realtor lady in Fairfield.
FWIW If El Toro's was as professional as Rose in Fairfiled is, IMO they'd do lots more bidnizz...and Willie in Palestine is a hoot to work with and could become a good friend in the future.
Wrote a Contract on a house the next morning with Willie & worked with a mortgage originator till noon...and ate the best meal of the whole week at Eilenbergers downtown for lunch. A little "Antique Tea Room " looking but the food is killer good and will become The place to take out of town guests for lunch.
The Anderson County Seller accepted our offer this morning, so we are headed to AC in late March or early April, after we close the deal with our Texoma buyer the last week of March too.
A old retired home builder buddy came down from Athens to walk the new place, and suggested we make Bradocks?? on Hwy 19 a regular 1/2 way each way lunch spot. Noticed the parking lot was full a little before 2'ish on the way back to Texoma.... gotta find a better way to get back to I-45 faster than 2 hours to North Park though.
Ya'll look for me at Archies Range in Oakwood later this spring after I find all my stuff again, or on RC or Palestine in a white 22' Key West CC Deep V Bayboat with a turquiose stripe...we'll be the only old folks yelling at each other about who caught the most/biggest fish I'm sure...and just mebbe can reach 50 years together in Dec '17.
