So on my recent trip home we went out to eat on like Wednesday night at the the Roadhouse restaurant where I was told they had peanuts that came in little pails that you shelled and threw on the floor, so I'm thinking it's a real casual country place. Roadhouse in my mind means honky-tonk type of bar, like the Patrick Swayze movie or something.
So we go in and I'm somewhat amused that our Roadhouse host is flaming gay. Along with our buckets of peanuts we get a wine list. A wine list at the Roadhouse. Hee. He wipes the booth seats dry with his butt because they are still damp so I'm even more amused. When he tells me the special of the day is swordfish I can't help it anymore and ask something like 'From the Gulf right? Swordfish at the Roadhouse?' Anyway I had a steak that were fine, but not great. So my grade for the Yuppie Roadhouse is a B.

In other news my poor sister passed out in the shower from dehydration and scared my poor Brother-in-law half to death. I feel more sorry for him then Amber.
I know us McClintock's are tough, like Bumbles (Abomibinal snowmen on Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer stop motion animation specials) we just bounce from falls with our massive bones and sturdy frames.

It wasn't the Texas Roadhouse, was it? Cuz they have pails of peanuts you shell and throw on the floor (the shells, that is). :D

I love Rudolf. I watch that show EVERY YEAR. Without fail. :)

It was something like "Red's" Roadhouse or some other such nonsense... err, the web is your friend. "Logan's Roadhouse". Sorta like McDougals, since it is exectly as you describe.

MY steak was overdone the first time. I considered ordered it medium-rare (I like a little reddish-pink in my steak), but figured I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. It came out definately well-done the first try, then medium well the second time. Blech. I gave up. The potato was good though.

As to the host: I felt like Richard Simmons was seating us. Heh. It just makes me laugh. Heh. See? I can't help it.

Spelling nazi. I try to include a little history for the youngsters who might not immediately get the 'Bumbles bounce.' reference and look where it gets me.
You sure I got Abomibinal right?
Let me check. Nope, it's
Abominable Snowmonster.

We have the same Roadhouse type restaurants in California. I've only been a couple times, and since I'm not a huge fan of red meat I usually feast on the bread which is served with this fabulous honey butter. Mmmm, honey butter!
