Used to be brown bag or lunchbox.

Not so simple anymore.

Lots of questions now.

Paper or plastic?

Sweet or unsweetened?

Medium or rare?

Hot tea or iced tea?

Spicy or mild?

Red or green sauce?

With or without cheese?

Mayonnaise or mustard?

Chips or fries?

Regular bun or Texas toast?

Small, medium, or large?

Is that for here or to go?

Smoking or non-smoking?

How many in your party?


Can’t live without it.

Nor without all the questions.

Food servers ask them all day long.

How do you want your eggs?

What would you like to drink?

How do you want that cooked?

Fries or baked potato?

Butter and sour cream?

More water?

Did everybody save room for dessert?

Is this together or separate?

Cash or credit card?

You’d be hard-pressed to go hungry in this town.

Cooper’s BBQ.

Santos Taqueria.

Topaz Bakery.

Willow Creek Café.

Square Plate.

Northside Café.

Short Stop.


Nacho’s Cafe.

Mi Pueblo.


Texas Deadwood BBQ.

Dairy Queen.

Tres Caminos.

Old Peanut Mill.

So the question is:

Where shall we eat?

That’s Mason.
