thanks I have meant to say "nice name" long before. I know about Frank X but have not ever eaten at the chilli parlor. Amon Carter who was from Fort Worth and owner of the Star Telegram would pack a lunch when he went to Dallas so as not to spend any money in Dallas. I try to carry on the tradition but sometimes it can't be helped.

I used to like to eat at the Old South Pancake House but it took too long to get out of there. I was always stuck to the seat or the table from all the maple syrup. Great for late night eating after a night drinking beer at the HOP. The HOP is now some Gen X joint. It got the name the HOP because years ago the place was a House Of Pizza. Local history for you. Did you go to school at TCU or how do you know all those palces?
