Re: “Beat the Heat: Nom Noms in Hot Springs

I finally got to eat there a while back. The food ordering system was less-than-stellar, and the server didn't know much about the food, but I ordered fish tacos and cheese dip, and they were excellent! The ingredients were all very fresh and the fish was well seasoned(!) and came with a tasty chipotle-mayo.

I had to try a pop after lunch, so without dwelling on the endless varieties, I found Heath/Nutella and snatched it up. Cold, messy, and worth the sticky fingers that resulted from the consumption.

While most burrito assembly line places can be mediocre, I was very impressed by Nom Nom's and look forward to the next time I'm down thata way.

Rice Bowl? Chicken Bowl? Lignite Bowl? Frack Bowl? Tar Sands Bowl? Hog Manure Bowl?

Re: “Huckabee: churches should reject tax exempt status

The missing part of this equasion is that tax-exempt status allows people to give money to these churches and deduct that charitable giving on their own taxes. If a church loses this status, then nobody can claim the deduction. Just a wild hunch, but I bet the coffers would be slightly smaller.

And the whole 'no campaining' ruse is mostly smoke and mirrors since many churches pass out sheets with the people God wants you to vote for.

Re: “A swing and a miss from Loca Luna

I ate there several times in their first few years. The meals started off great then started sliding. The last couple of times I ate there, I swore never to return. The kitchen was often without key ingredients and made poor substitutions in its place without bothering to inform us. Switching button mushrooms for shitakes is not something that should be done without first clearing it with the customer. There is a huge difference in flavor, texture and price between the two. A salad of spring greens that are wilted and black should never make it out of a kitchen. I understand that this stuff goes south quickly, but seriously? The last time either the waiter of kitchen screwed up the order so badly and then argued with us about the mistake.

I'm pretty easy to please and we did our best to get the order fixed with patience and grace. Y'all go ahead and eat up their stuff. You won't have to wait for me to leave before you get your table.

Re: “Food nostalgia and La Casa Real

This place, and their relatives are my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. I usually order a shrimp dish. I love the fresh pico and the hot green salsas. The warm, oniony salsa is too sweet for me. And yes, the beans are the best , hands down. Even the rice, with little lima beans and other veggies is so much better than the other Mexican places around town.

Re: “The gordita of variable price

The original Life commercial statement was "Let Mikey try it, he hates everything". Followed by "He likes it! He likes it!" If Mikey liked everything, then liking the cereal wouldn't be a big deal, would it?

Re: “Senate passes Missy Irvin’s attack on adults making choices she doesn't like

Could this bill be a backdoor method of outlawing contraceptive devices which are implanted under the skin?
