Ritter's Substandard Frito Pie

How in the world can you mess up a Frito Pie? All you have to do is dump a ladle of chili in a bag of Fritos and maybe garnish it with some chopped onions. Somehow Ritter's Frozen Custard stand on Fry Road in Katy managed to turn this simple idea into a wad of white cheese and pickled jalapeño slices with not enough corn chips and hardly any chili. I'll never make that mistake again.

Nor will I be eating anymore of Ritter's hot dogs. Maybe they do start out with Nathan's Coney Island frankfurters, but who can tell what the hell the hot dog tastes like with all of this pickle relish on it. Ritter's has excellent frozen custard. But be advised -- stick with the ice cream and don't press your luck on the lunch items.
