Good news in restaurant findings....
Here's a new one I found last night for the Pages and added in.

If you want to eat out, here is a good one:

Consolidated Restaurant Operating are blue. Gene Street has been in the industry in Dallas for many years. When I did searches on him and the 3 other main members of the group, they all gave to Dems except for one guy, who I could find no donations for.

So here are their restaurants:
El Chico, III Forks, Cantina Laredo, Good Eats, Cool River Cafe, Spaghetti Warehouse, Chevy's Fresh Mex, Casa Rosa, Lucky's, Fuzio Universal Pasta, Silver Fox

Happy guilt-free dining.

1. Chevy's!
As a rule I go to indie type restaurants but it will be nice to go to Chevy's guilt-free cuz there is one by the IKEA here in Burbank CA -- man I ASSUME IKEA is OK, it's a Swedish company...right? Sigh...I better look!

Anyhow the gimmick that Chevy's has is they have ths giant tortilla making machine in front....my local Mex cafe Don Cuco's has a lady sitting there making them all day by hand * pat pat pat* but I always feel kinda sorry for her, what a boring job! The mechanized ones are just as good, but in any case, once you start eating really fresh, just-made corn tortillas those packaged ones in the store become as tempting as eating cardboard.

Thanks for the info!

3. Ive heard about Chevy's
since I listen to KFOG from SF over the internet (before they quit airing local commericals a few years ago). Always sounded pretty yummy.

But I agree. Freshly made tortillas (corn OR flour) are delish!

2. Spaghetti Warehouse!
I used to go there as a child, but haven't been to one in ages. I guess I'll be visiting one again soon!

4. Me too.
We had a work lunch at one a few years ago, but I have bad memories. Half our department had just been laid off, and I had water to drink. Plano water is disgusting, and they had no bottled or filtered, so the lunch itself sucked.

I don't remember the food being much better, but it might just have been my attitude at the time.

5. I've never heard of any of these!
:-(

That's okay. I try to stick to locally owned restaurants anyway.

6. Mostly Texas and California.
Sorry Lydia!

But buying local is always better anyway. Down here, it's hard to avoid chains, so you have to pick and choose.
