La Burreria in Odessa

If you have a taste for delicious burritos as breakfast or lunch, La Burreria may be your place. Located in East Odessa on Billy Hext just off 191, the menu is pretty simple: The have burritos, some of which can also be served as a somewhat smaller tacos. In addition to that, they have drinks and…. a place to sit. Here’s the thing, though: Mexican food restaurants pretty much follow the same rule as good barbecue. If they have spend too much money making it look good with a lot of fancy extras, then you are eating in the wrong place. Continue reading “La Burreria in Odessa”

Verizon coverage on a Western Caribbean cruise

Looking forward on the Lberty of the Seas.

I wrote earlier that I was frustrated by the fine print in Verizon contracts concerning how much data you get. Happily, shortly after that Verizon went to their unlimited plans and we quickly switched. In June we took a cruise with Royal Caribbean that went to Roatan (Honduras), Costa Maya (Mexico), and Cozumel (Mexico). Verizon’s international service is actually pretty good, particularly for the short term traveler, and I wanted to relay my experience here.

Updated Breakfast Menu At Rosa’s Cafe

The new breakfast menu at Rosa’s Cafe.

Earlier this year I wrote about the new breakfast menu being served at Rosa’s Cafe (a chain in Texas, principally in Western Texas), and yesterday I wrote that they appears to be offering dine-in breakfast service. I got the chance to try the new breakfast menu today, and I think I found a new favorite breakfast spot. It isn’t the same as my favorite greasy spoon breakfasts (regardless of cuisine), but it is a great choice for a leisurely weekend breakfast with the family.

Rosa’s Cafe breakfast menu now available for dine-in?

Breakfast taco platter at Rosa’s Cafe in Texas. You can also get individual tacos.

I wrote earlier that Rosa’s Cafe (a Texas institution, particularly in the West of the state) had started a new breakfast menu. At that time, I noted that breakfast was only available via the drive-through. My family and I ate dinner tonight at the location on 191 and Faudree in Odessa, and they had several posters up about breakfast. None of those said anything about the drive through, so I asked. Eventually, somebody found a manager who understood that I was not trying to order breakfast tacos at 8 p.m. and she confirmed that breakfast is now available for dine-in. There seemed to be some confusion on my question, and I cannot personally confirm it. However, a lot of site to this traffic is generated from that previous post. I wanted to let everybody know, and I will confirm one way or the other as soon as I can.

UPDATE- Please see my post from September 22 for the new breakfast menu and details on their dine-in breakfast.
