Does anyone actually even understand Daylight Savings?
It had been rainy the beginning of this week (and *ahem* right now, what the heck Houston.), so I attributed
the dark mornings to that. But surely I'd see my 6:00 am sun soon!
(I think you all know how this story goes.)
But I swear I'm not the only one confused! Man, woman, and all of God's creatures big and small seem to be completely bewildered. My dog Newton and the yapping birds outside my window seem confused. And I'll bet those fellas pictured above at Canyon Creek Bar & Grill are confused too.
Lowbrow, Onion Creek, and Cedar Creek.
Much like Onion Creek and Dry Creek, the atmosphere is that of a fun, welcoming, neighborhood bar, where one would expect typical standard bar fare. And much like the others, first-time patrons are pleasantly surprised with creative, high quality, top-notch food.
Without much persuasion from me, she also ordered the fried pickles.
Fried pickles have a tendency to be a little soggy, but these were super crunchy, with a delightful, slightly spicy seasoning. The pickles themselves were bursting with wonderful sour flavor. And dipped in the ranch dressing, they were perfect. Y'all, I'm going to say it:
Best fried pickles I've ever had.
For my meal I ordered the luckenburger with a soy boca patty and no bacon to make it vegetarian.
So put one on a veggie burger, and I'm happy as a clam in high tide! The patty itself wasn't anything exceptional (though I do go nuts over the hummus wrap with soy boca patty at Onion Creek, which admittedly is probably the same patty). But the egg, smooth white cheddar, crisp vegetables, and fluffy buttery bun gave the patty a significant extra nudge, which made the dish enjoyable. So while it wasn't my favorite veggie burger I have ever encountered, or even in the top five, it was still a respectable contender.
Ugh, and those fries. Just like the fries served at Onion Creek, they had a zippy seasoning, and were delightfully crunchy. Dip 'em in the broken yolk, and I swear you'll see stars.
I am beyond happy to report that I have fallen in love with yet another Creek Group joint. Canyon Creek is a lively, fun spot, serving inventive, delicious, beyond-standard bar food. It's definitely gained a secure spot in my Houston restaurant rotation, and I definitely recommend adding it to yours!
