We had the need for a celebratory lunch on Tuesday, what with it being our anniversary and the day our daughter and son-in-law closed on their first home. So, with me playing hookey from work, we all met up at Texas Land & Cattle over on I-10 at Wurzbach. Eva reminded me that we had been to this place before, but I didn't really believe her until I recognized the glass enclosed bar. I suspect they smoke in there. You can read about our last visit, here.
Anyway, I'll spare you the detailed description of the place, suffice it to say there is the horns end of a cow mounted on the wall, a few cool cow paintings and a bunch of flat screen TV's throughout the place showing ESPN.
We had fantastic service. Our waiter was a pro and he had just the right amount of personality combined with, the important ability to leave us alone while keeping an eye on the table in case we started to look like we needed him. I wish more waitstaff could learn that little skill. I offer all of these accolades only to say that either he got my order wrong or I told him I wanted the wrong thing.
The problem is too many choices. Looking at the menu, I asked for the sirloin and shrimp combo. The real name for that is Smoked Sirloin and Shrimp Combo. What he wrote down and served was Garlic Steak and Shrimp. When I got the food, I was pretty sure it wasn't what I was expecting, but you know my rule of never sending anything back to the kitchen, the spitting and all that.
The baked potato was a total loss in my book. It looks loaded, but it was missing butter, there was only a hint of sour cream, and I think it may have been undercooked. One of the things I enjoy about Texas Roadhouse is the way they do up their baked potatoes, you know, with the salted outer skin and all that. The other saving grace, besides the shrimp and the service, was the salad I didn't take a picture of. It was excellent.
