On the road. I'll go first. It was a lobster bits and pieces dish in butter. It was in a restaurant called O'Donnell!s in downtown Washington DC. You go next.

A lightly breaded and fried calamari dish in redondo beach CA....drizzled with some sort of olive oil garlic mixture. Razor clams in oregon and fresh lobster in New Hampshire wasn't bad either. A cheese sandwich when I was about to starve while hauling hay as a younger man was pretty damned good...it is all relative.

Hard call. Overall Meal came from a Pecan Lodge Behind the Pit Dinner where they served a menu of

First Course was smoked salmon on top of a bed of cheese grits with greens, a smoked quail on a bed of white beans, then smoked beef rib and chuck with a side or horseradish and smoked peach cobbler for dessert.

2" Thick Ribeye (bone in), Baked tater and salad and a slice of homemade apple pie with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade vanilla. Cooked by the chef at Sherwin Williams private deer lease. Have not had a steak that good since. Was about 15-16 years ago. It was put on the grill frozen and then seasoned with Fiesta fajita seasoning.

First one that comes to mind is the fried soft shell crab appetizer at GW Fins in New Orleans.

We have probably a dozen times and while it's really good it doesn't touch the real thing at all they know their stuff.

The cheese enchiladas at El Gordos in Wichita Falls are what I judge all enchiladas by. However, that was the El Gordos of the 70's and 80's. It has fallen so far off in quality that I won't go there anymore.

Can't decide. Either: Filet Tampiquena at El Chapparal in Helotes or Prime Rib at Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage AK, or homemade tamales in San Angelo (local Methodist Church ladies made them for Old Fort Concho days)

At Commander's Palace in New Orleans. It was a Filet Mignon topped with artichoke hearts and bearnaise sauce. After having lived in NO for 7 years, we moved to Houston. 8 or 10 years later I went back on business and we ate at Commander's. I still remember thinking, after that first bite of steak, "my God, I forgot just how good this place is". No other meal anywhere has ever made me stop in mid-chew and contemplate the taste that was partying in my mouth.

Second memorable meal, also in NO, was at Ruth's Chris, at the original location on North Broad (I think that was the street). I was with a couple of guys, and to my surprise, one of those guys was dating the night manager. We walked in and she flew into a big hug and kiss with the guy. After that we got a special table and the best ribeye I can ever remember eating.

Man...I gotta go back to New Orleans. The food is like no place else on earth.

This is tough. I'm a big seafood eater so I will say I had some crab and lobster in Portland that was the best I have ever had. At home, the pan fried quail my grandmother used to cook was the best.

It depends on how hungry I was at the time. I once sauteed a whiting that was so fresh the gills were still gulping for air at my feet. Best meal, though? Probbly a ribeye dusted with TexJoy and a salt rubbed baked potato.

Spam, tomato, mayo on white. It was 40 degrees and misting rain. It was at a bird dog competition. I was throwing yesterday's birds.
