    Oh, Pappy's then? Never heard of it, but The Mason Jar brings back memories.

    Good luck on your chili. Post pictures. I just procured two pork butts at half price, and figuring I need a pork-based chili recipe for one of them....last one I just invented on the fly. I do have some frozen smoker-based, Pork au jus from the previous two, though. That will help anything.

    Good man. I have several many tiny tupperware containers in the big freezer with various leftover juices. And stock.

    I really am curious how this chili powder turns out.

    Wanna meet me in Terlingua next summer? I think I've outdone myself.

    Tiny's, last time I went, didn't seem abnormally young, but the servers seem to be from nearby high schools I guess. Bebidas, which is nearby is definitely a HS kiddo hangout. And Ouissie's is for geezers, super boring atmosphere, but underrated southern cooking.

    My coworker told me that she had a brisket fajita plate at El tiempo that was awesome. The kitchen said that the carne was not looking good so they offered her an off the menu brisket plate. Apparently this is available all of the time.

    Yeah, I was thinking he meant where HS girls want to go on a date, since I thought maybe he was talking about 80/90's era Ouissie's. Tiny's seemed like the River Oaks MILF crowd, but definitely a place for a Lamar dude to be expected to take his St. John's date.

    Serious question: is there a better fajita in Houston?

    I liked Teotehuacan on Irvington and Original Ninfas and El Tiempo on Richmond ten years ago.

    I need to know what fajitas to hit when I hit Houston.

    I don't think so. El Tiempo and Ninfa's on Nav are the two that come to mind, though I haven't been to Ninfa's since they opened an El Tiempo right next to it, if that tells you anything.

    Ninfa's is better by far IMO. Just not sure about fajitas specifically. They both serve good fajitas, personally I'm not crying over one or the other being vastly superior. It's not a very difficult or complex dish.

    Huh. Family Matters?

    The Deluxe Mixed Grill at El Tiempo was my go-to.

    A friend of mine took me there years ago to specifically introduce me to the papa nachos. They were so damn good I went back three times in about ten days. I have told hundreds of people about this place over the yrs (and the papa nachos), and everyone who's tried it has said it was one of the best things they've ever eaten.

    I used to meet my pops and his downtown banker/lawyer types at Teo's, or Spanish Flower. Strangely enough, he turned me on to the Last Concert Cafe, he went for lunch, I went after dark. Carolyn Wonderland was on Wednesdays and the Hightailers were Thursdays iirc.
