Tbug was game for anything on this trip to Ft. Worth, except she had one request… She wanted to eat at Risky’s Steakhouse. A few years ago when we came down to pick up Squirty at the horse breeder, we drove in to the Stockyards so that Tbug could see the Ft. Worth Stockyards. That day we ate lunch at Risky’s Steakhouse. They had Calf fries on the menu as an appetizer. On a later venture to Risky’s Steakhouse we learned that you could also get Calf fries as a meal. Tbug loves Calf fries so when she heard you could get them as a meal, she was sold. So she specifically asked for Risky’s Steakhouse on this trip.
When we got there, mom ordered an appetizer of Shrimp stuffed Jalapeño poppers. They were Gulf sized shrimp stuffed with cream cheese and red peppers then deep-fried to perfection. The problem was there were 5 of us and only 4 poppers. Hubby shared one with me. I mean I guess I’m not huge on shrimp anyway so….. but I did try a bite and they weren’t bad.
Abug was enjoying the rolls, plus some of my Chicken Fried Steak. Her favorite was the potatoes.
So dad and I went with the Chicken Fried Steak. I had Garlic Mashed potatoes and dad went with fries. Holy cow were those potatoes awesome. The chicken fried steak was good too but those mashed potatoes! OMG.
Tbug and hubby went with the Calf Fries Dinner. Hubby had the Garlic Mashed potatoes and Tbug had a loaded baked potato. Tbug was satisfied. Abug tried a calf fry and liked it.
Not pictured, mom got half a rack of ribs and a loaded baked potato.
And that was lunch. Tbug was so excited she got to eat Calf Fries for her meal she could hardly say 2 words while she was eating.
