A cut above the rest
In keeping with the horror-movie theme of this funky little place, Ray's Franks n More (1302 Nance, 713-224-6441), the onion rings are called Scissor Stix ($3), after the 1990 movie Edward Scissorhands. The onions aren't rings but sticks, as their name implies, and each order also has some jalapeño sticks, heating things up a little. Both the onion and jalapeño sticks are puffy, like they've been bathed in a batter, although the chef says it's only flour and baking soda. Truth or fiction? It's a mystery.
