Long Lost Love
Go back 15 years or so with me.......as kids in the Sudan family whenever your birthday came around, not only did you get shotgun in the car all day but you got to pick any restaurant of your choice for lunch and dinner. Wendy's for lunch, Panchos Mexican Buffet for dinner. Those were my choices.
The other day I actually had cash in my wallet (usually we use the card) and I told Alex that I wanted to treat myself with a special lunch after I had finished working for the day (I do home inspections for vacant homes in the DFW area). I had been talking about it for awhile and had not gone since I was a kid, so around 2:00 p.m today I pulled into the Panchos Mexican Buffet parking lot in Euless, TX got out of my car and walked up to the buffet line, ordered enchiladas, flautas, and tacos, sat down at the table in front of the flag (mexican flag that you raise when you need service) and had a delicious lunch. After living in Dallas, I have become a Tex-Mex snob with the likes of Chuy's and Glorias, and to tell you the truth if felt great going back to my roots and eating at Panchos. And I am serious when I say, it really was a great meal.
So, I issue the challenge.....whenever you see a Panchos on the side of the road, stop in and raise the flag.
