What's your guilty pleasure?

Ok, I'll start this one. I actually have a lot of guilty pleasures, but here's the one that just popped into my head:

Newks Cue sandwich with Sriracha sauce and cheetos (Crunchy) inside. One million calories of yum. If anyone had doubts about the quality of my palate/food judgement, there's probably no doubt left now.....

205 University Blvd E, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401

    Just had one of them..... Jim N. Nicks' o-rings dipped in 50-50 ketchup and their habanero BBQ sauce.

      Fried chicken and any of the homemade cakes at Terra House in Colquit, Georgia. Same meal at Minnie's in Columbus. Pulled Pork at Brick Pit in Mobile.

          Going to Gordo's and ordering tacos with gnarly fillings AND buying the big ol bag of pork skins to munch on in the car. That's one reason my doctor is so mad at me.

            Well, to keep this Central South related, Littleman, I've had exactly what you're talking about at Doe's and *gracious* that's good. It's my husband's favorite steak in the whole world.

            My guilty pleasure, though, is going to Rabideaux's II in Iowa, Louisiana. Boudin, boudin balls, pistolettes, meat pie, cracklins...there's not much of a place to eat it there, save a couple of picnic tables outside so we leave, snacking on it all in the car. Mmmmmhhhhh....

            We bring a cooler and bring home a turducken or two.

            Oh my stars, hungry just thinking about that place.

                    Doe's as franchises also. The ony two family owned are in Greenville and Paducah. You could get to Starkville in 3 hours but would keep going for the original.

                      IMO Doe's is defiantly not "destination dining" ..Have a back up plan.

                        Couldn't disagree more. Now, if you're talking about one of the franchises, I've never been to any but the original in Greenville.

                        For me and an army of my friends, that *is* destination dining.

                        Uncle Bob, what's your guilty pleasure?

                          Destination is stay at The Alluvian Hotel and dine at Doe's, Giardinia's and Lusco's over 3 nights. That's a destination plan. Have lunch at Crystal Grill a time or two.
