Founders and the flag
This place was another stop on the Nostalgia Tour 2019, and was in fact the reason we were even in this part of South Texas. This restaurant has been around since the 1940s, selling local seafood and other specialties. My first visit here was in the late 1970s (it’s where my mother-in-law told me I was eating shrimp the “wrong way”*). Anyway, everything was pretty much how I remembered it. I don’t specifically remember the flag in the restroom hallway, but it seemed like it’s probably been there all along.
I ate some shrimp, and no one even cared if I did it the right way or not.

*Full disclosure: eating shrimp incorrectly was not the only thing she pointed out to me. It was, eventually, quite a lengthy list that included – but was certainly not limited to – laundry detergent, family planning, child rearing, and making coffee.
