Winner Winner, Chicken Taco Dinner

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

The house my parents bought back in 1954 was (and still is) within one mile of a taco stand.

That taco stand is now Emmas Taco House, and it’s our restaurant of choice for most (if not all) of our family gatherings.

The Mexican food is authentic and hot, and the margaritas have way too much tequila in them. Do I really need to say more?



That’s One AWFUL Burger

Meat Meet the Awful Awful burger.

This bad boy is made with 1/4 pound of beef, fresh lettuce/onions/tomatoes, freshly baked buns, cooked on a flat-top, and served on a bed of no less than one pound of hand-cut fries. All for the amazingly low price of $6.25.

To enjoy one yourself, you’ll need to drive to the Nugget Diner in Reno, Nevada (hidden in the back of the “Nugget Casino,” on Virgina Street). Where they also serve two ten-inch pancakes and an egg (the “Pancake Sandwich) for $1.99.

Clearly, these people know how to feed the hungry and broke.

Which is why you shouldn’t be surprised to find yourself sitting next to college kids and homeless people when you visit.
