It was a lazy Saturday morning when Steph said she wanted to hit Black Sheep Lodge. We finally got around to getting ready and headed south. The traffic wasn't bad aside from one woman on her phone cutting in and out of traffic like she had some place to go and she was too important to drive along with the rest of us. She even gave me the bird as I drove along side her. I guess wanted me to let her pass? We ended up at the same stop light a few minutes later so it didn't matter anyway. She didn't seem to get that same bit of truth. On to Black Sheep Lodge we journeyed just north of Oltorf on Lamar.
It was a little crowded since the UT game was on but we found a table and had a seat. The waitress came by a little later with menus and to get our drinks. They really hustle there so service is great even when they are busy. We split several appetizers and a burger instead of getting only one thing. Cheese curds, corn dog bites and a Black Sheep Burger with American cheese, medium rare. All the veg on the side. I actually at the veg like a salad. It was mixed greens and tomatoes. In fact, I've had worse salads. The veg was nice and fresh. The cheese curds were those bite sized pieces of mild cheddar cheese that is battered and fried. They were nice and salty with that just right tooth to the them. The corn dog bites were pretty good too, especially with the curry ketchup. If you like corn dogs then you'll probably like these. In the end I yearned for a proper corn dog but these certainly are good too.
The burger came out a little later. It was cooked perfectly and the patty was nice and juicy. They didn't try to over season or over work the meat, it let the natural flavor of a high quality patty do the talking. Steph really loved it too. I suppose I could go on and on about it but if you've read enough of my blogs then you already know what to expect. This burger is well worth the trouble to get out and the price they charge.
UT scored several touchdowns while we were there and the place was high with excitement. I suppose I should mention they have a large list of beers to choose from and I noticed a few that I'd like to try sometime but not at noon on a Saturday, we had stuff to do.

Go on out to Black Sheep and have some fun. Why not?
