@clonetek I have a meh hat I can send you. It was a custom thing that we only got one of, so I will send it to you on the condition that you post a picture of you wearing it in public. Don’t wanna lose it without people ever even getting to see it, after all. Deal?
And the longer you wait, the longer we have to use our imaginations. I see you in a bright pink (or mehbe a neon purple) Pussy Hat with “MEHyeoooow!” emblazoned on the front, which you are wearing proudly to a monster truck rally.
@clonetek I’m going to have to time a trip through Longview to coincide with a meal there, then (I’m from Shreveport so it’s not far). Anyplace that proclaims “Famous for Ribeyes” is talking directly to me.
Until you make it to Longview, try this - it’s quite for real and you don’t have to worry that the waitstaff will sniff at you for not being up to their standards. Wear your t-shirt and sandals if you want.

M&M Steak House–1971
Twenty years earlier in 1951, M&M Steak House originally opened as Papa Joe’s, serving the same rib-eye steaks and calf fries the obscurely located restaurant is known for today. When the original owner passed, the name was changed, according to a longtime cook who’s been grilling steaks in the location for 44 years. Today the dark and dusty dive is owned by Keith Kidwell, who also owns Margie’s Original Italian Kitchen. With walls covered in taxidermy, neon-lit beer signs and a jukebox of old Country and Western hits, M&M is destination dining strictly for patrons in the know.
They mostly have normal steaks, but they stray a little toward the “Amarillo” type menus:
One review, for one of the more well-known menu items:
Ordered the 32 oz sirloin and if you are looking for a “real” steak with fat gristle and all it is fantastic. The garlic sauce is a little strong but I enjoyed it. My wife on the other hand was not a big fan of trying to pull out the fat and gristle. Very old school classic dive that clearly has never changed in years and years.
@f00l I’ve been there - many years ago when rancher relations from ID came to town for the Fat Stock Show. We were told it’s the best ‘meaty steak’ in town.
We heard a rumor that it was closed, but don’t often get up to the Northside to confirm. We do occasionally visit the Star Cafe in the Stockyards
. Have a fine (long) tale to tell of my first weeks living in FW, staying at Miss Molly’s…
