Little Taste of Texas
19 Oakland Rd, South Windsor, CT 06074
My boyfriend and I love this resturant! It's authentic texan food right here in ct. Many favor Little Marks but Little Taste Of Texas blows them away. They use just the right amount of spices and the meat is never dry. If you can stomach the huge portions and leave room for dessert you are in for a treat because the deep fried twinkie sundae is AWESOME!

Having moved to town a short time ago, we were eventually lured into this place by the amazing aroma as we drove past. We've returned again and again, about once a week, for the best authentic barbecue around. The decor, staff and menu are all in the spirit of the Old West. It's a fun, laid-back kind of place that's great for family or friends, with great food (especially the ribs).

I can't believe this restaurant is still open for business. I questioned my choice of restaurants as we were walking in from the dark and poorly maintained parking area as we passed the open side door to the kitchen. The kitchen staff was hanging out on the steps smoking cigarettes.
We were first served a basket of overspiced tortilla crumbs. They were the bottom of the batch we were told as there were few if any actual chips in the basket.
The menu looked as if it were created so that any 16 year old chef would be able master the kitchen. (Including a deep fried burger and deep fried Twinkies)
We started with the Nachos, more overspiced tortilla chips covered with cheese, jalape?os and olives. It took a while before we got our order, but upon arrival, we knew why. They were overcooked. The salsa was also served warm, as if left un-refrigerated for hours.
Our menu choices included a chicken wrap and the fish and chip special as listed on the menu board.
The wrap was a large tortilla filled with buffalo chicken, bacon, lettuce tomatoes and ranch dressing all thrown together and served with... a side of overspiced tortilla chips. My wife, who rarely ever complains and eats almost anything, found this dish to be inedible.
As for the fish and chip Special? two square fish filets taken right out of the box from the freezer and then deep fried until the breading was a dark brown (overcooked) along with a few fries and two clam fritters. The fritters were undercooked - in fact, they were raw, wet and gooey.
The dining area, brightly lit with florescent lights like a school cafeteria, allows you to see the dirty floors, sticky walls and in particular, the tray of condiments at each table. The tops of the bottles have not been cleaned since first opened as most are ?crusty?.
I must admit, the Corona?s and glasses of water were spectacular.
All this?.for just under $50 including tip.

After living in texas, and enjoying BBQ beef and great Steaks, finding ALToT... was such a pleasure... they take care of their customers... We have ordered 10 and 15 lbs of BBQ beef for church picnics and fairs it has been a real hit and we look forward to seeing them again real soon... We also eat in house at least twice a week and we and our grand children enjoy the wonderful food which they serve and it gets me salivating just thinking about those steaks and BBQ beef...
