A funny thing happened on the way to J.R.'s in Natalia the other night. Our nephew, Diego, was staying with us this week and Eva had been getting him all psyched to go enjoy a good burger at J.R.'s, and perhaps, in defiance of the no profanity policy, utter a few choice words under his breath. No such luck though, since J.R.'s isn't open for dinner on Wednesdays.
Our next option was to take a short drive down to Devine where surely we could grab one of the really sloppy burgers on Texas toast since we had never shown him that fine hole in the wall.
Joey's Surf & Turf where we have enjoyed a burger or two in the past. But when we walked in, it was clear that Joey's had remodeled.
The new place is called Southern Kitchen and they serve up steaks, chicken fried chicken, fish and some other southern favorites. Sorry, I didn't get a picture of it, but the salad bar was fully stocked and suddenly, we think we may have found a substitute for the one that went away with the demise of Eatza Pizza.
But we were on a mission for burgers, so burgers it would be. Southern Kitchen offers a hand made 1/4 pound burger standard with lettuce tomato and pickles. From there, you can add on all the other fixin's you want, though there is additional cost and it adds up if you are a pig like me.
