Everything is bigger in Texas; hair, bbq, the state fair, and quite literally, the state its self! I’m pleased to share that bloody marys are no exception to the rule!

As I mentioned in my previous post (Smoke), I was staying with my best friend and her family in Texas for a week as they prepared to move and her husband to deploy. Heidi lived in Keller, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth, so I was ecstatic when I realized one of the craziest and best bloodys in the United States (according to Thrillist.com) was only about 1.6 miles from her house, in Watuga, Texas. What are the chances? Chef Point Cafe, a gas station turned fine dining establishment, which has been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, is not your average fill-up station.

When I arrived, a hostess escorted me out back to the covered patio and I caught a glimpse of what I was there for! The “Bloody Best” bloody mary! I looked at the drooling dog next to me (patio is dog friendly) and I could totally understand the feeling. Without hesitation, I order the bloody best! Quite honestly, I didn’t order anything else because it is a meal in its self, x2.

In the Midwest, the serve bloodys with a chaser, typically a pony or a shooter. Not Chef Point, they give you an entire 16oz draft (your choice from any of their domestic drafts, not limited to Miller or Coors, like other places). I went with the Deep Ellum, Dallas Blonde. The reasoning for the beer is you need something to hold you over while your best bloody is concocted! Twenty minutes later the bloody was delivered to my table and I was blown away. Finally, the bloody I have seen in numerous posts and shared on Pinterest thousands of times, was mine all mine!
