Golden Corral and Denny's don't do it for you? You cultural heathen!

Have you ever set foot in a Denny's?

I'd probably like Conroe if it was somewhere that it snowed! I have to have my winters. I've never been to Golden Corral and wasn't real pleased with Denny's last time I was there several years ago. I couldn't get my wife to consider either one anyway. That's one thing I miss from the City is good food. That's about the only thing though!

Lake Conroe is truly gorgeous and Fajita Jacks as well! Some superb bars on Lake Conroe.

You can say this about us Brits...we know how to party, lolololol.

i must say we have some excellent fine dining restaurants here in houston, fine prices but then you get quality food and not so much of the quantity thank goodness, so much waste in the diners and fast food places.
