Bastrop - VERY good burger on hwy 71!!

Jax Hut is on Jackson if you go through town, and right off the highway if you're passing through. Roadhouse used to be my favorite, but Jax Hut took the throne. Fresh, delicious $10 burger. Other menu items I've tasted are appetizers. Burgers so good that I won't order anything else!

Kids' menus at restaurants. Really? [From General Topics]

I teach and work 30 min in the school cafeteria. From 5 years old and up, you should see some of the lunchbox contents I see. A packet of cookies, peanut butter crackers, chips, gummy worms, and a fruit roll up = five days a week. But the kids who eat the tray lunches are no better. Kids with money in their account can buy 2 ice-creams a day and we are NOT allowed to ask them to eat their meal first. Teachers have been complaining for years. I wrote a letter asking the Austin Statesman to investigate. Your tax dollars buy free lunches (my school is 95% free lunch). They don't get eaten. Magically the child has $2 day to buy chips and ice-cream, which is what they eat for lunch. With chocolate milk. I counted milk one day. 11 white milks in the entire cafeteria.

When I was young, it was a big deal to get to have a McDonalds birthday party! I'm 45.

Hi, are you still a secret shopper for restaurants? I saw your Chowhound post from Feb 2010. Shauna85@gmail.com

Grand Central Oyster Bar-reservation for bar seating?

I have only ordered oysters and chowder, so I can't recommend other dishes either.

Hi, I don't know if I'm allowed to post about a new place in Bastrop? This community lost 1600 homes (about a fifth of our population) to a fire in September so I'm doing everything I can to support a new restaurant. The Olde World Bakery is in The Crossing which are those old buildings next to the river (behind Main St). All bread is handmade. The vegetarian bread is TO DYE FOR and only $4 piece. Pizza delicious and the BLT has chili rellenos on it. They do not have good coffee (just normal coffee). The owner is donating desserts to the MEN WHO COOK event on Dec 30 in Bastrop. If you need a great inexpensive culinary event to attend.... :)

Hi, I always pop in when I'm in New York. I sit at the bar and have never had a reservation. I love that place!
