Crow’s Burger Shop in Temple

Crow's Burger Shop in Temple photo 1

I’ve been neglecting this little side project of mine for a while now, but not for lack of material. I’ve actually built up quite a collection of photos and savory weigh-in on some local eateries. My apologies for the lag, but here’s to starting the new year with some serious deliciousness!

The first of which involves a random hankering for something more substantial than the deli meat and cheese in the fridge, something terrible for your waistline but awesome for life at the same time: Crow’s Hamburger Shop in TempleCrow's Burgers

The boyfriend and I each got a cheeseburger, order of fries and a coke. It was a pretty tasty burger. And the price didn’t make me instant-regret my lunchtime decision.

Someone once described a breakfast taco to me as over-lauded and anti-climatic. Obviously, that person doesn’t know the comfort that can come from bacon, egg and potato blanketed in a warm tortilla. And while I love making them at them home and eating them at every major fast-food chain, I especially love finding local places that help me get my b-taco fix. 

This morning while walking my dog, Barley, I whipped out the old Blackberry and set about trying to find out where I might some of these delicious day-starters. (Yeah, yeah, I am obviously still a noob. Feel free to help a girl out with suggestions below!) Yelp!ers were raving about this little joint on 31rst in Temple called El Taco JaliscoContinue reading
