2. List out your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location.

Top Five, in no particular order:

--Chuy's. The theme of the decor is more-or-less "Mexican Elvis." The food is fantastico tex-mex. I usually order the "Big as Yo Face" Burrito with ground sirloin. If you get it on a Friday, you can have it covered in "boom-boom sauce," a spicier queso. Best part of the meal, though, is the Jalepeno Sour Cream dip for the tortilla chips. Not to be missed.

--Logan's Roadhouse. Yes, it's a nationwide chain, but it's still dang good. And my baby sister loves that you can throw your peanut shells on the floor. Try the Kickin' Chicken Salad. This is the regular "family dinner" spot where I meet my folks during the week.

--Saltgrass Steakhouse. Best chicken fried steak anywhere. The combo plate with chicken and sliced sausage is pretty choice too.

--Rudy's Barbecue. Okay, it's a bit of a drive (about an hour north, in College Station). But it's the best BBQ experience I've ever had. I even prefer it to Goode Company, Houston's long-revered BBQ chain. But the fact that you buy the meat and sides family-style, instead of in individual portions, and that (at least at the CS location) you're sitting on picnic tables in an oversized barn, really lends itself to a downhome family-picnic atmosphere. Lots of fun, and good eatin'.

--Treebeard's. Best food in Downtown Houston, but it's only open for lunch on weekdays. Get the Red Beans and Rice with Sausage and onions, extra cheese. Pile on some free French bread from the basket next to the silverware. Awesome. Happy fullness will ensue shortly.

3. Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged.
