For a while now, we have been driving by a billboard near Lytle for a new place in Pearsall called Hungry Hunter's Bar & Grill, opening in November. Pearsall is less than 30 minutes from our place near Natalia, so I figured it wouldn't be such an ordeal to take a drive down I-35 and check the place out.
Valero convenience store with an attached 24-hour restaurant called the Porterhouse. Sure, we could have gone across the highway and given Cowpokes another shot, but we both agreed not to make that mistake again.
We really walked in expecting it to be bad, and in fact as we stood in the entry way, I hinted that we could turn around if Eva wanted. It wasn't anything in particular that gave me a bad vibe; the place was clean and there were people eating and such, but I didn't want convienience store food. We ended up taking a booth near the window so we could watch the truck, and settled in to wait for the menus.
In the booth next to us was a young man who was eating dinner and fielding several calls on his iPhone. He asked us if we knew how to take it apart to get to the sim card. Once the friendship was established, he asked us about the next bus headed to Laredo. I was thinking he was a run-away, but as it turned out, the young man, Sam-Flo as he goes by, is a rapper for Christ, and he was on his way down to Laredo to visit a recording studio. He asked us to look for his 14 song mixed-tape coming out next year.
