Last night we went to see Nathan's blues band, The Leghounds, play at T.C.'s Lounge, over in east Austin.
We chatted it up, sipped on our ice cold beers and got our picture taken about a hundred times by this overly enthusiastic photographer with a snapshot camera.
There is no menu at T.C.'s. They just kind of decide what they are going to serve every night, take it or leave it, so we asked our waiter if there was any food. He said that tonight there were chicken wings for $6 a plate. We were slightly disappointed because Nathan had been singing the praises of T.C.'s fried catfish for days and then ordered the wings anyways. But the wings made up for it. They were crunchy, hot, juicy and tender and served up with some fries, toast and a simple salad drenched in Ranch dressing.
Then after we polished off that plate, we heard them announce that the specials tonight were Chicken Wings and Fish. So we quickly ordered a plate of catfish too. Nathan was right, they were really good. The catfish is really fresh, fried in the same crunchy corn meal coating as the chicken wings, and just perfectly seasoned.
