IN SEARCH OF...


As many of you will recall, IN SEARCH OF... was a nationally syndicated television show narrated by Leonard Nimoy. The program was quite successful, running from April 1977 - March 1982. At this point in time the Needtovent empire does not include a broadcast division, although we are very close friends with the top writer of THE LOVE BOAT and once met Aaron Spelling during an ill-fated pitch session with the suits from the William Morris Agency.

But I digress (as Jerry L. Nelson would say)...

Loyal readers of Needtovent know that our very own J. Wellington Wimpy (the aforementioned Mr. Nelson) was recently on a seemingly unrewarding quest for a decent hamburger in the KB Home/D. R. Horton subdivision once known as the Texas Hill Country. Despite one disappointment after another, this intrepid restaurant reviewer and bovine devotee refused to throw in the napkin. His relentless journey was finally rewarded when he discovered a new establishment -- My Place Bar and Grill -- and since then all is well with Jerry's personal universe once again. (For those of you who may have missed it, the review for My Place was posted on March 16)

Thanks to a properly cooked hamburger such simple-minded, unadulterated happiness has not been seen since the Special Olympics in 2007.

Which brings us full circle to IN SEARCH OF...

Needtovent hereby reaches out to its burgeoning readership requesting restaurant suggestions for Comal County and surrounding area. Let's try to limit these to within a fifty mile radius of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge in New Braunfels, a reportedly hallowed structure that serves as the center of the cosmos for many local residents.

So the question is: Who turns out the best chicken fried steak, the tastiest pizza, the most delicious nachos or the most succulent porterhouse in this geographical area? It is up to you to let us know. And as the suggestions come pouring in we will dispatch Jerry L. Nelson as quickly as possible to provide us his very own unfettered opinion which Needtovent will post for the benefit of all.

It's up to you. Please click on the "Comments" link below and tell us where to go.

Literally...

Okay is that tantamount to looking for the redeeming qualities of the current crop of presidential contenders or maybe possible or pro athletes today, hmmmmm or maybe you are just looking for Mr. Good Burger?

Mr. Nelson:

People tell me Myron's is the best steak place in the area (outside of SA). Do you have a favorite?

What do you think of Cattle Catcher?

i've dined at myron's many times while never having done an official review of it....i rate it equal to anything in SA...perhaps not in variety but certainly in steaks....i recently compiled a list of my top restaurants for various reasons and myron's was my first pick for SERVICE....in fact in my review of Specht's general store and restaurant, i mentally classified myron's in that group of "high dollar steak houses" in "the big city"....my one experience at the cattle catcher (or is it cow catcher?....i'm confused) in bulverde was such that i've never been back....steak was, at best, average....service was charmingly inefficient and i don't believe they could make a proper beverage if they had a guide book....admitidly my visit was before i started doing reviews...so much for their good luck....but if someone suggests it, i'll be brave and take another run at it....i'm willing to forgive and forget....ONCE....how about some suggestions from you....it sounds as if you know the dining area....jln
