The Spot in Galveston, Texas



 To begin our summer, we headed to the beach at Galveston. My mom had to go there for work so we all tagged along. My step-dad could have his own show on Food Network, so you have to know we ate out quite a bit. One thing I really like about him is his fearless attitude toward trying things that are new and different. 

We set off walking from our hotel and ended up at this multi-level eatery with a party atmosphere. The whole place made me think of the old movie Weekend at Bernie's. It was packed to the gills. I actually found the whole thing a bit confusing. You have to wait in line to order and then you can sit in about 25 different locations. The fish tacos and coconut shrimp were well worth it though. There is one thing that could woo me back in to the madness. Fried pickles. They were the best I have ever had. That says alot because Plucker's can make some seriously good fried pickles. These were better. Good, savory, thin sliced, extra-crispy goodness. Go see for yourself. The Spot.
