I love onion rings. I love them big and tall. I love them greasy and small. Recently I ordered onion rings at a restaurant in Dallas and I was shocked—these are the best rings I’ve had in Dallas in a long time. Since Restaurant Week basically kills the food news biz, let’s play another game today: Can you guess where these onion rings were cooked? Go. Somebody will win something.



Bailey’s in Cedar Hill ?

Yes! Congrats, GJ. Send me an email.

  1. chef luscher – you’re gonna be cursed with her coming into the grape tonight wanting your meat between two buns….

  2. There was a farmer who had a dog and BINGO was his NAME-O.GJ WINS. Bailey’s it is-was! If you guys want to keep commenting as the 67th comment is from now on always a winner

  3. Sorry about that comment. I am in the grocery store and typing and walking. What I think I meant was if you are commenter #67 in any post you will become a member of a very exclusive club and have very special opportunities. Fresh corn looks good; gotta go.

  4. Luscher, out of the game. To the showers. Disqualified. Call Pat Sharpe and have her take you to Wingfield’s. Best Burger? Make onion rings like these and we’ll talk.

  5. I’d go a long way for great onion rings, so I’m salivating for the answer. In the meantime, I’ll head over to La Duni Northpark (which technically *is* in Dallas), and have their onion rings. It’s offered only as a sidedish, but oh, what a sidedish!

  6. Just tried the onion rings (strings?) at Lakewood 1st and 10. Meh. But I’m in love with the waitress there (pixie blond). I don’t know how to tell her, but I’ve told my wife at least 10 times, so you’d think it’d be simple. sigh.

  7. Brad,
    sorry your rings weren’t great. I guess they’re not really “rings” but “strings”, so i’ll DQ them from this discussion.

  8. Mine. Large thick onion ring slices soaked overnight in buttermilk with some egg whipped in. Rolled into HIGHLY seasoned (salt, pepper) cheap white flour. Dropped into an iron skillet of peanut or canola. Alternative: Slices into same seasoned flour, THEN into whole milk with an egg whipped in, and then BACK into the seasoned flour and dropped into a deep fry bath of peanut or canola since they can be VERY hot and not smoke. A heaping platter of rings for maybe less money than you’d use to buy an iced tea at a diner. They also freeze well and can be re-born on a cookie sheet in a 375 degree oven.

    I know. I know. Who wants to cook. On the other hand, the other night at mu haunt of 25 years, Calle Doce, I had two REGULAR margaritas that used to be $5.95 but now cost $7.95 (not ‘top shelf) and a seafood cocktail (used to be $7.95 now $12.95) and with tax and tip it cost me $36. If an appetizer and two margaritas are going to flirt with $40, my Bible will again become my almost-got-dusty folder of favorite recipes. Salud.

  10. @Anne, are we starting at 0 or 1? See, you’re counting NN as 1. I’m counting Escapist as 1.
