No Special Treatment for Vegetarians at Barbecues

The only place for a vegeterian at a BBQ is on the grill.

where do the locals eat in Lahaina/Kaanapali?

Looking forward to being in Maui next week. I know there are many great places to eat, but I am always most interested in going where the locals hang out.

Hanger Steak

I do all "good" steaks exactly as you just described. Whenever I try to get fancy and deviate, I am always dissapointed. I say don't mess with perfection when you are working with a great ingredient. Save the marinade for a sirloin.

Great steak in McAllen

Try them again. They are typically very consistant. Also try the Patio On Guerra. Great place in the revitalize downtown and priced right.

Where else should I go?

Try Eddie V's Edgewater Grill. Downtown location has great jazz band in bar. If you want an amazing experience and don't mind forking out a little more, Hudson's on The Bend out on the lake is an incredible experience. If you really want great bbq and have time for a drive through the hills to Driftwood, pick up a six-pack of Shiner Bock and try the Salt Lick. Mandola Winery in driftwood is also outstanding.

New Orleans Cooking School

Is the New Orleans Cooking School legit or just a tourist trap? Any other ideas for something similar?

Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Henry Bain Sauce

"Well done" and "tenderloin" should never be used in the same sentence. If you must, roast a pot roast instead or perhaps a cole haan. The will all taste the same.

Best steakhouse?

Eddie V's is a self proclaimed seafood place, but serves Allen Bros. steaks. Truly the best in town.
