When he asked for vegetables

In this week’s letter from Texas (Guardian Weekly, “Have anything to eat as long as it’s meat,” byline John Lee, June 11, page 27), the dateline is Lockhart, that favorite destination for Austinites with a long lunch hour. The reporter visited Smitty’s (in the old Kreuz location) and Black’s, skipping Kreuz in its “new” location and checking out Chisholm Trail, with which I’m not familiar. When the reporter, his inner carnivore flagging, sought “vegetarian options” at the Chisholm Trail, he found okra, potatoes, and onion rings, all fried. I’d never expect anything more vegetarian than jalapeno slices, myself.
