Houston-specific one, but El Tiempo sucks. I'd rather eat at Taco Bell.


Every time I come to Houston I go. Love the micheladas. Starting strong

Nirvana is the most overrated band of our generation.  Cobain couldn't sing and he could barely play the guitar.

Nirvana did manage to put out a handful of catchy, though very simple, songs.

But Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice In Chains were all more talented and it's not even close.

Anchorman sucked.  It was a slapstick lowbrow comedy with good actors/comedians.

Give me dumb and dumber all day over the piece of shit that is anchorman.

I like it just fine, but don't get the hype and think it's overpriced. I don't get good responses when I say that to my coworkers.

El Tiempo is “good” but not great; overrated and expensive.  Talk of rather eating at Taco Bell is BS but I understand your point.

That sums up most Will Ferrell movies.

All the Star Wars after the first 3 should never have been created. Fucked up a great Trilogy.

Along the same lines, all of the sequels to Rocky should have never been made. The first movie was a great story about a nobody just surviving. The rest of them turns him into a superhero and detracts from the first story. Rocky I is worse because of Rocky IV.

while I feel for people who have lived in a place for a long time and can't keep up with their property taxes, I also love seeing shithead neighbors replaced with thirty something dog walking lesbians sprinkling gentrification dust wherever they go

The importance of breakfast is blown way out of proportion. Sure, it's nice to have a big breakfast on weekends or holidays, but if you skip it on a regular daily basis, there's no real harm.

Neg Rep for shitty Justified/Olyphant take + Pos Rep for accurate Big Lebowski opinion = 0

Agreed. In fact, Foo Fighters are a much better band, showing who the true talent in Nirvana actually was.

Fuck that. Foo Fighters are on the same level of Nickelback. Spare, generic band that cranks out simplistic songs for the radio.

Catchy songs beat technical prowess every single time.

Eric Clapton agrees. Eric Johnson, not so much. In context of grunge, though, I gotta agree 1000%. Nirvana wasn't great because of talent, but they were great.

Food-specific and El Paso, Texas-specific.

I never warmed up to Chico's Tacos.

The people I knew there couldn't wait for me to try it when I was out there. Wow, they were terrible. That was an unpopular opinion.

Jerry Maguire was horrible.

Chick flick all of the way.

While I didn't especially like JM, the idea that chick flicks automatically suck is way off. The quality of a chick flick is in direct proportion to how likely you are to get laid after watching it, minus an adjustment for how much dialogue there is in the movie. Points deducted for Olympia Dukakis, but points added for nekkididity of acceptable quality and duration.

Yeah. I’m from El Paso. Not a fan. Give me Lucy’s on the West side. Their Chile relleno is awesome.

 Yoga pants retailers should do us all a favor and NOT make any size above a large.

i don't mind Austin's growth. traffic is still nothing compared to Houston, geographically it's still not very far to anywhere. so many better restaurants than there used to be. interesting people, i hear at least 5 different languages at HEB. and the insane housing market is going to allow me to retire (early) next year when we sell our central Austin home.

I won't say it is disgusting but like Whataburger, I don't get the obsession at all. I do enjoy the speedy service they give you and the friendly service of their employees. Their waffle fries are better than their chicken sandwiches.

Guero’s does suck, and you sound stupid overpronouncing it’s name like it’s not a fucking Tex Mex place. Looking at you, KUT.

Yep, the chubby chaser is right. Slight hyperbole, but pretty much.

Agree on your take on Nirvana. Eric Clapton is so fucking boring and overrated though. He should have put the guitar down in 1971.

Yes, this is an unpopular and just wrong opinion.

Those waffle fries suck ass.....pick up your food at the counter and before you can sit down and eat one they are luke warm at best.

If you think Foo Fighters is good music, then you you like shit ass pop rock. Which is fine. But to say someone has shit taste in music based on the fucking Foo Fighters is comical.
