So, let's get to the tasty portion of this blog post!
Road food highlights include:
This SERIOUSLY cool Coke Freestyle machine.
HERE to find a machine in your area....it is really so cool! We also enjoyed some Jack in the Box tacos and egg rolls. Of course I had to eat a Breakfast Jack for my Dad....those were his FAVORITE! We were also able to hit Steak and Shake for kids-eat-free weekends as well.
No trip through Charlotte, Atlanta, Houston, and Austin would be complete without some Ikea Meatballs!
On Sunday night, we went to dinner at the Spaghetti Warehouse
Monday for lunch, we stumbled upon a uber-cool place called FREEB!RDS World Burrito.
Last night, we went to dine at the beautiful La Hacienda. This was the same place that was on Throwdown with Bobby Flay when he took on the ever-famous San Antonio Puffy Taco as well being featured on Food Nation, Good Morning America, and Emril Lagasse.
It is truly a magical place. FULL of outdoor seating with live music and TONS of twinkle lights hung on the trunks of these amazing trees. We sat down at our table and ordered. I of course ordered the famous Puffy Taco filled with chicken. It was not like anything I had ever had before. It wasn't a fried flour based dough like a Navajo Taco...it was a corn base, but thick and puffy with a crispy outside. It was a textural delight!

Louis had us try this amazing green sauce that he described as an Argentine Pesto (I think).
Well, thanks for indulging me in this on-line travel diary of sorts. I don't want to forget any morsel that made me smile on this trip :)
