Stubb's Bar-B-Q, May 27, 2009

The last restaurant we visited on our Red River District tour was Stubb's Bar-B-Q. Stubb's is both a restaurant and a concert venue. They have an indoor stage and an outdoor stage. I've seen The Refreshments and Dog's Eye View on the indoor stage. I've seen 30 Odd Foot of Grunts (Russell Crowe's band) and Polyphonic Spree on the outdoor stage. Brian couldn't remember if he'd ever seen a band play there. Here's a look at the indoor stage:

Here's a guy with with his head on a buffalo's snout:

Neither of us had eaten in the restaurant, and on the way over there, Brian said he thought they had Chicken Fried Chicken which I always think is funny because the name comes from Chicken Fried Steak which means steak fried like chicken. But Chicken Fried Chicken is chicken fried like chicken fried steak, so I think they should call it Chicken Fried Steak Chicken. All that was moot, though, because they didn't have it on the menu.

The special of the day was Pulled Pork Tacos. I paid extra to get Onion Rings as the side dish. The cashier assured me they were worth the extra $1. When Brian ordered the same as me, I thought we weren't managing our risk very well. If we ordered different things, and one of us didn't like what we got, we could always steal food off the other person's plate. But if we both didn't like the Pulled Pork Tacos and Onion Rings, we were out of luck.

I thought the tacos were okay, but not outstanding. Neither of us was impressed with the onion rings.

I saw on the board that yesterday's special of the day was Apple and Chorizo Stuffed Pork Loin. I asked Brian what Chorizo was, and he said sausage. Mmmm... pork stuffed pork.

The music overhead was "Don't Rock the Jukebox." Brian said that if Hell was a bar, it would be a country bar that plays this song over and over.
