Youngblood’s Fried Chicken, in Waco Texas, was just about the best fried chicken in the world. Can’t say the same for the coffee!

The first place I ate in San Antonio, Texas. My dad had been transferred to Randolph AFB and we got into town and had breakfest here.
Jet soft drink – beverage of choice, when I was 10.
ABOVE : The only place that made fried chicken to rival or surpass Youngblood’s. Alas, no longer there!
ABOVE: Famous for its donuts without a hole! Still going strong.
ABOVE: The Elite Cafe on “The Circle” in Waco, Texas. This was where we first stopped upon our arrival in Waco when we moved here in January 1955. We were staying at the motel across the way (The Tam O’Shanter) and used to come here for breakfast. My mother also bought my peanut butter sandwiches here for my school lunch. I hated them!
