Have you ever gone back and revisited any of the restaurants you used to go to as a child…the places you liked as a kid? If not, seize the moment and do it!  Now that I’m working in my hometown again, it’s great fun to go back to some of those old-time favorites. The big surprise isn’t how the places have changed but the unexpected emotions that flood your psyche when you walk in the door!

One of my childhood favs, the Barbecue Inn, just got some national recognition for its fried chicken, so I had to go back…this time with cameras rolling!  Oh the nostalgia! Not much has changed on the menu, and why should it? Just last year, this comfort food hangout snagged a spot on Yahoo’s Top 10 Fried Chicken places in America! Need I say more?

My wife and I visited the Barbeque Inn last night (located on Crosstimbers in Houston) after reading your article in the Here Houston section. We were not disappointed! The food and service were fantastic, just as you had written. Thanks Tanji, and keep up the good work!!

You fail to mention that MAX’s Wine Dive is also on that list – they mention the Austin location, but the Houston fried chicken is the same. Just today, “Daily Meal” named MAX’s as one of the best fried chicken dishes in the country, and last month, MAX’s in San Antonio was named the best fried chicken in the city. They must be doing something right…

Your pictures of the different dishes were great! You left me hungry. Reminds me of Tip Top here in town! I definitely have to stop there next time I’m in Houston, although I’m going to have a hard time picking a dish!
