I am torn. In a perfect world, I resent having to choose between good food and good service when I go to a restaurant. When compelled to choose, I prefer the good food. The biggest part of why I go to a restaurant is to eat something delicious that I cannot easily prepare at home. That said, I also eat out because I can do things I can’t at home– for example, I can sit on my bum, wait for people to bring me stuff, and then have them clean it up and take it away.

See this short video if you want a walk through of the available facilities. Continue reading “Midland Odessa International Airport MAF”
There are several excellent places to get a burger in the Petroplex, but if what you are looking at is the quality of the food (while ignoring the price tag), Grub Burger in Midland is hard to beat. The burgers are always fantastic, not least because they make their own buns. As a bonus, there are great choices for anybody in your group who doesn’t want beef. The kids and I went today for lunch and it was, as always, fantastic. Continue reading “Grub Burger Midland TX”
