Lunch at the Big Hat

Do you remember when you spent a day or two at grandma's house? The food wasn't really like at home but was a simpler fare. That is the feeling I had recently when I ate at "Big Hat & Little Whisperer" sandwich shop just off the square in Bellville, Texas.

This eating establishment is a counter served / self serve sandwich and snack shop. I decided to order the Brisket Sandwich. A woman who looked like a grandmother asked, "Would you like your brisket sliced or chopped?" I said "Chopped please."

While my sandwich was being prepared I looked at the variety of snacks, chips and drinks available. I pick out what I wanted with my lunch. After I had made my selections I realized that "Grandma" was still "fixin" my sandwich. This is not fast food, it is grandma food. I learned that at the "Big Hats & Little Whispers" sandwich shop when you order a chopped brisket sandwich they don't just scoop up a blob of chopped beef out of a plastic tub, Grandma takes out the sliced brisket and hand chops it for you. I'll bet if you ask she would even cut the crust off your bread..

Did I mention that all the bread is homemade?
