What we ate: We started with the complimentary loaf of bread, served hot from the oven.  It was soft and warm inside with a beautiful golden brown crust.

I also grabbed a Frozen Margarita at the Bar during Happy Hour (happy hour specials are good only at the bar).  This was a pretty big drink, served in a tall, frosted glass.  Very tart and strong, took me awhile to drink it all.

We ordered the Fried Jalapenos appetizer, which were thick slices of jalapenos battered and fried then topped with bacon pieces and melted cheddar cheese. These reminded me a lot of potato skins but with jalapeno instead of potato.  These were tasty and crispy and only slightly spicy, especially when dipped in the ranch that is served with them.  Excellent choice!

There was no doubt that I would get my usual steak, the Ribeye.  I ordered the smaller 12 oz, medium.  Very good steak!  It was char-grilled, tender and juicy.  I never eat the fat on a steak but love the flavor it gives it.  I also eat horseradish with my steak because I love the spicy sinus-clearing sensation that it gives me and think it really goes well with beef.  I had my choice of potato and got the loaded baked.  Oh, I love steak and potatoes!

I also got this little cup of chili that didn’t excite me very much.

Two of my companions ordered the Smoked Sirloin wrapped with Bacon ,one with Baked Potato and one with Sweet Potato.  I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I had never seen a baked sweet potato until this moment.  It was slit open and loaded with butter and brown sugar.  One bite had me wishing I had ordered it too, I loved the sweetness of it.

Overall Impression: We had really good service and our steaks were also very good and  reasonably priced.  I don’t think you could go wrong at Texas Land and Cattle (Unless you;re a vegetarian!)
