When I go to York I always make a trip to Texas Roadhouse and get their Filet Mignon.  I don't know how many times I've been there but I've never had a bad one.  You can pick your own in 6, 8, or 12 ounces.  Biggest baked potatoes I've ever eaten.  Just take route 30 ( I don't know if it's east or west, lol) to Mt. Zion road exit.  Take ramp and make a left turn at bottom of ramp.  Go thru the first light and make left at next light.  Reasonable price for Coffee, 8 ounce steak, potato, and salad only  $22.00

 

Enjoy,

Thanks Joe LOL,
I had a 6 way bypass. I'll pass on the Italian sausage with onions and peppers.
I don't need to do the bypass thing again LOL It really wasn't any fun the first time around.

Thanks so much guys.We're at the Sheraton which is right near the Round the Clock and the Texas Roadhouse sounds nice Rick . Like I said I didn't know York had gotten that big.

While I'm not sure it's actually good for a heart condition, there is a cart at the fairgrounds that sells crab cake sandwiches that lot's of folks like.  (it's probably better for you than the cholesterol in the sausages, however!)

 

I make sure to try to stop there each day for lunch.

Thanks Dave we'll be sure to look for it. Being a Maryland kid I'm a big fan of crab cakes and it's not to bad if you go light with whats on top.

Basically to eat heart healthy the rule is simple . If it tastes good ......You can't have it.
No Chile dogs ,Mickie D's ,Burger King or trips to places like Harold's . No seafood dipped in butter, no greasy sausages. No sausage gravy & biscuits or donuts
Boy this gittin old sucks and my wife will be with me so if I did eat any of that stuff ,she'd have me walking to Roanoke and back (20 Mi.) when we get home LOL.

|This last month I lost ten pounds that was my ata boy but you guys know how that goes. I can have a bunch of ata boys and one aw poo poo like a chile dog and with her it's like I never did anything healthy at all.

  Gotta love her she takes good care of me.

There's also an Outback Steakhouse in east York.

Now your talking. Outback sounds really good. Here you have to wait an hour just to get in the door and I hate that. I don't mind a little wait you know 15 or 20 minutes but an hour is a PITA but it seems like the economy has killed a lot of the good places to eat in the Roanoke Valley.

We'll also check out that restaurant in the Sheraton Brian
Thanks so much

No kidding? Besides my "Baltimore" wife's cooking, I've never found a great crab cake outside of Maryland.

Ha ha,
Then you've never tried my moms! Coarse I was born in Bathesda and grew up in Gaithersburg. My uncle ran a fishing boat on the Eastern shore(Choptank river) .My mother now splits her time between Virginia and Florida
Doesn't matter where she cooks them they're always good.
all you need for a good crab cake is:
Crab pot
Chicken neck
Old Bay
her special blend of herb and spices
Cast Iron skillet
Big appetite

She also has a special recipe for fried oysters which I could eat till they came out of my ears.

At the risk of being (even more) unpopular, my opinion of Coombs for dinner is that  the steaks are mediocre, the seating is cramped and even with a reservation the wait is generally at least a half hour.

 

The Outback on East Market Street (my personal favorite) or the Roadhouse on 74 (?) are by far an all-around better deal for a steak dinner.

For quite a few years, we've always arranged to have at least one dinner at Sam and Tony's on Market Street.  Some of the best Italian that we have ever had!  It's located about 3 blocks West of George Street, it's not too expensive and the food is not only excellent but also abundant.  Nice, accommodating people, too, we've had groups of from two to twenty people.  After all these years, when I walk in, the bartender, who remembers me, will always have a Brandy Manhattan ready for me!

NO WONDER...you're the only person he's ever had that ordered a brandy manhattan

Funny,
He could serve me a Bugtussle Manhatten and I wouldn't know the difference.
With mixed drinks all I can taste is the alcohol and it all tastes like cough sirup.
Doesn't matter what kind of drink or what you put in it, all I taste is cough sirup.

In all the years my wife and I have been married she's never learned. She'll get a drink and turn to me and say"taste this it's wonderful." I'll take a sip squint my eyes and say Yuk she just looks at me and shakes her head LOL.
Yep  give me a diet coke and I'll be just as happy.

Coombs is a very popular, noisy, crowded place. I never had the steak but I did have the crab cakes and thought they  were great. Alexander's which is just outside of the fairgrounds has the worst food and service on the planet. I've been going to York for the  past twenty two years and have yet to find any  place that I would recommend.  I'm sure there are some great places to eat. I  just haven't found one yet. Somebody mentioned Sam and Tony's Italian restaurant. I have heard that it actually is very good and I will be trying it out this year. After reading this thread, I'm hoping to find a few other good  places to eat.

Dave,

Do they serve Kangaroo or Emu meat at the Outback Restaurant? If they do, go for the Beef Steak.

That's funny!

 

The name of the popular chain is the Outback Steakhouse and they don't serve Kangaroo, Emu, or Wallaby.

 

However, I once had dinner at an Outback Restaurant in one of the Disney hotels that did have a Kangaroo appetizer, which I ate. Underneath all the sauce that they put on it, it tasted like chicken.

You have to seer it on both sides and take it off high heat, best finished in an oven for a while to get it cooked to your preference. Overcooking on a BBQ results in a tough piece of meat. I'd rather just have a nice beef filet, T-bone or Rump, simpler.

The restaurant next to Fridays is good too.

Naw they got a guy on the TV commercials that talks like you do but they aint got no Roo on the menu Emu either . The animal rights people would burn the place down if they did. They do have good beef steak but about the only thing Australian is the name.
It's American world cuisine you know like French Fries and Pizza.

Paul, You are NOT going to believe this, but I asked my wife if she had ever heard of a brandy manhattan. She said heard of people from Wisconsin ordering them as well as brandy sours. I said you were from Ohio, and she said, "Maybe he moved".

In any event, thank you for your good-natured reply to my "ribbing". I'm quick to laugh at myself, but some people can't.
