That's the way to live, eh? Y'all go run...we'll go eat country cooking!
Anyway, we'd heard good things about a new joint, the Cowtown Diner. It was convenient to our hotel...but even if it wasn't, we're all about trying new and interesting places.
Even if the food wasn't good, the decor was definitively cool. Modern country meet old-time diner vibe. Note the sleek wood, stainless steel, exposed brick and individual table lamps with cowhide lampshades. Awesome.
We also loved these semi-opaque panels separating the kitchen from the main dining area.
We skipped fare like That Boy Can Pack Some Groceries and Hold Ya Til Supper and went more traditional breakfast combos.
Biscuits and Sausage Gravy came with two biscuits (unfortunately, slightly dense and heavy), aforementioned gravy, eggs, bacon and new potatoes.
Breakfast tacos (with sausage) were delightfully grilled crisp but not greasy. A side of jalapenos and salsa rounded the plate. I thought the salsa could use some work...perhaps some lime juice and a heavier dose of fresh cilantro.
I also ordered a side of cheese grits because...well, just because. The grits were smooth and creamy, with a sprinkling of finely grated cheddar on top. After mixing the cheese in, I added in my jalapeno slices. Delish!
