For one day only, Chop House Burgers will serve on a Sunday.
But only in the parking lot of chef Kenny Mills’ new steakhouse in Pantego, and only to raise money for charities in West.
“Burgers 4 West” features Chop House burgers in the steakhouse parking lot on West Park Row Drive 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. The party includes two bands.
Neighbors Saljo’s Pizza and JR’s Grill will donate a portion of Sunday sales to West charities, and Grease Monkey, Mixed Up Burgers, the Arlington Kincaid’s and Louisiana Fried Catfish & BBQ are donating, too.
“Everybody’s pitching in to do all we can,” Mills said.
It’s the latest in a whirlwind of events and openings for Mills and his Chop House restaurants, which grew from one to three almost overnight.
His new Chop House Steaks & Seafood, billed as a “throwback” Texas steakhouse, is open for dinner.
One notable special: Mills is offering a two-for-$49 steak special Mondays through Wednesdays.
The four-course dinner includes a choice of appetizer, side and dessert, plus the salad bar and a 6-ounce filet mignon or grilled chicken.
Chop House Steaks is also serving prime rib Saturdays ($25). It’s open Mondays through Saturdays for dinner only; 2230 W. Park Row Drive, chsteak.com.
Want to help West?
Go and dine there.
West’s restaurants and bakeries have lost not only customers who had to move, but also five days’ business to utility outages.
These West restaurants are worth a stop, maybe a trip:
Picha’s Czech-American Restaurant serves everything from margaritas to pierogis, and from sausage rolls to fried chicken.
Don’t miss Jenene Picha’s meringue pies; open Monday and Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner (Tuesday lunch only), 220 N. Main St., 254-826-3008.
Nors Sausage and Burger House became a quick media favorite for its hand-packed burgers, sliced patty sausage and Czech-style fried potatoes.
It’s open weekdays and Saturdays for lunch and dinner, Sundays for lunch; 128 N. Main St., 254-826-4427.
Gerik’s Ole Czech Bakery is the in-the-know stop a block off the freeway for larger kolaches, cinnamon rolls and lunches.
