At Randy White's enjoy chicken and ribs, spicy beans, and rice with corn.
Lloyd and Nancy Sheets offer delicious old-fashioned custard at their colorful shop.
If you want to start with something savory, try one of the famous all-beef hot dogs, which comes split down the middle and served on a wheat bun. I also liked the Frito Pie--fresh corn chips topped with homestyle chili and cheese served in a plastic foam container. Sip on a cool fresh-squeezed limeade or an old-fashioned soda. 7511 Main Street; (972) 377-8668. Sundaes and Caliche's: $4.25-$5.85; hot dogs: $3-$3.25; quart of custard: $6.85.
Randy White's Hall of Fame BBQ
Texans love their cowboys and their barbecue. At Randy White's you get two in one. Grab a tray, and choose from the Hall of Flame Smoked Meats. The ribs and hot link sausage are perfect with a side of spicy jalapeño pinto beans. There's also brisket (sliced or chopped) and pulled pork. Most can be served on sandwiches. For the non-carnivores, they serve a mess of cornmeal battered catfish fillets (deep-fried, of course) with a side of hush puppies. For tailgating parties, pick up one of their paks, which feed a multitude of hungry fans. 8999 Main Street; (972) 377-0540 or www.randywhitesbbq.com. Barbecue: $10.54 per pound, all-you-can-eat: $15.54.
