There are good restaurants with local flavor and character everywhere in the United States. We have been to a few (The Derailed Diner, for example). Our visit to T-Bone Tom’s in Kemah, Texas, was no different. The variety of food served with a smile was a pleasant experience.
The decor at T-Bone Tom’s was country flare/Americana with checked tablecloths on wooden tables. A unique touch was on the well-worn chairs–they had sponsored ads or personal messages. Each one was different–from family memorials to plumbing and air conditioning ads. We visited the restaurant twice and found something new each time.
There was a variety of food on the menu so everyone in a party can find something to fit their individual palates. For us, it was boudin balls for an appetizer (yummy shrimp cocktail on our second visit), chicken fried chicken, and chicken fried steak (with brown gravy). The green beans were the BOMB. There were plenty of sides to choose and no shortage of food. In fact, we had enough for lunch the next day.
The ambiance was fun, casual, and laid-back. While the food was wonderful and the service friendly and fun, the best part was the company. Wonderful friends, family, Shiner Bock, and food–it was a melding of the stomach, heart, and soul.
Until our next adventure,
