Your favorite restaurants off the beaten path...

Do you have any restaurants that are somewhat local but out of the way? They have great food and reasonable in price?

Here there is one called The Dutch Village. They have killer breakfasts!

I used to take the redline into cambrige (a good half hour and changing subways twice) at least twice a month to go to Casa Mexico which had very cheap, very authentic food. It was very greasy, very spicy, very un american. Even the beans tasted like home.

Unfortunatly it was too Un american (not enough guacamole and salsa) so they had to close down.

Now I'll still go into cambrige from time to time to visit Ana's Taqueria which is very cheap, very authentic and they at least sell burritos so that's enough to draw the usual crowd.

Also there's Farsika which is a great and kinda cheap ethiopian place but it's not exactly out of the way... I can walk to it in less than 10 minutes.

Casa Baeza has the best Mexican food and makes killer margaritas. 40 mile drive

Morning Thunder Cafe - homemade soups, sandwiches, salads, and orange spice tea, which I always order when I go there. 50 mile drive

Sierra Valley Lodge - prime rib and twice baked potatoes. 20 mile drive

Rickshaw's - Thai spring rolls, honey lemon chicken, Thai spicy basil chicken, tempura platter. 50 plus miles

Here in Houston it sometimes seems like everything is out of the way because the city is so spread out so I have a few restaurants I will drive 30+ minutes each way to go eat at, most noteably:
Thai Racha for Kee Mau
Wing-n-More for buffalo wings
Napoli's for Pizza for lasagna
Pho 21 for Pho
Pho House for Bahn Mi

I live in a small town in Lancashire England, we have a great pub/restaurant called the Fisherman's Retreat. There is a sign by the side of the road, and we thought it was just off the road. But we walked and there was another sign, and we walked and there was another, we walked up and up and up, we went past llamas, by which time I was saying to dh "oh my goodness, we've walked too far, we're in Peru!"

But in the middle of farming and woodland areas was this place, built of reclaimed stone. It has a fish pond with carp and trout, and occasionally they let you catch your dinner. The food is fresh, locally produced, and the service friendly.

They also have an amazing Guy Fawkes fireworks night in November with traditional English food. I love the place!

Kyles, I'm going to have to take a trip to Englad soon! All of the wonderful things you tell us about are making me really want to see the country--especially your neck of the woods!

Corky's in Memphis for barbecue - for me, about 900-something miles.

But they will FedEx an order.
