Why settle for fast food onion rings? Better to save up your fried batter calories for the good stuff. Here begins a series on great onion rings around town.
Del Frisco’s (5061 Westheimer in the Galleria, 713-235-2600) offers a mountain of rings that feature a double dip batter. They’re served crisp and hot with a liberal sprinkling of salt and black pepper and ketchup on the side.
They cost nine bucks plus tax and tip at lunch and a dollar more in the evenings.
More rings to come – it is almost time for the Olympics, after all – and if you know of any great places or have any recipes to share, drop us a line in the comments. – Jay Francis
