|The Marriott elevator|
Hotel restaurants tend to be hit and miss. They have a captive audience, so to speak, and depending on the place, you may be pleasantly surprised, or downright furious at what you get. When you stay in a hotel, and either can't or don't want to travel outside the building to eat, you're stuck with what the hotel has to offer. Fortunately, for guests at the Houston Marriott Westchase on the west side of Houston, the Republic Restaurant is a great place to eat.

I am no expert on authentic German food, but Friedhelm’s in Fredericksburg must be close to the mark. This large, pink hotel/restaurant located on the west end of Fredericksburg, is a popular dining destination for many tourists that come through this pleasant little South Texas town. Whether their food is spot on German or not, it is excellent, although expensive.

Denny’s Restaurants can be very good, very bad, or somewhere in between, depending on the location of the store. I suppose that is true with just about every chain store, but we have noticed this especially at Denny’s, as we travel frequently and have visited Denny’s in many locations.

Any restaurant that can provide outstanding food regardless of how busy they are, deserve accolades. IHOP on I-35 South (4109 South Jack Kultgen Expy) in Waco, Texas is such a place. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon in July, when the restaurant was packed. Most of us probably assume in such a situation that service will be slow, from seating, to ordering, to receiving food. Happily for us, this IHOP proved that a big crowd isn’t a problem for them.

I normally don’t like standing in line and ordering my food cafeteria style. When I go to a restaurant, I want to sit down and have someone take my order. However, if the food is good enough, then I’ll do it. Jason’s Deli is on a very short list of restaurants in which I will stand in line to order, simply because the food is consistently excellent.
