Best Onion rings in Texas!

Let me be the first to say that the Ranch House Cafe in Rice on I-45 has the best hand made onion rings in Texas! In my opinion, portion, price and flavor can't be beat! are there any contenders out there?
The best around DFW is probably at the Big Easy in Plano. They are "Cajun" style with some cayenne sprinkled on after frying. They are just the right size, crispness etc. It's an unlikely place to have such a good ring.
I live throughout the year in different parts of our country and for some reason I am drawn to all that is fried... especially the onion. Hands down the best fried onion ring is at El Dorado Jacks right on Lake Conroe in Montgomery, TX. Hand-cut rings, battered in a "made from scratch" batter that is perfectly seasoned with milled pepper and (from what chef tells me) a proprietary blend of seasonings. I've tried to recreate in my own fryer with no success. They have 50# bags of onions stacked up... They have re-opened since Hurricane IKE and were busy last night.
