Texaz Grill

6003 N 16th St., Phoenix

This place has been on my bookmark list for a while. I wanted comfort food last night and Wednesdays the dinner special is liver and onions. I can make liver and onions just fine at home but then the apartment smells like liver for a week. Got there about 6:30 and the place was packed. I had a choice of waiting at the bar or just eating there anyway. I chose to eat there and I had a good view of the basketball game on the TV so all was good. For $9.00 I got 3 good sized slices of liver, a bunch of bacon, a mound of onions, mashed potatoes and gravy and a small salad. For what I paid the food was quite good and plentiful. The service was excellent. I still don't care for skins in my potatoes but the option was wedge fries with skins on. At some point I will come back to try the chicken fried steak.

After several decades of street widening on Bethany Home and 16th st the parking lot is not big vehicle friendly. The bartender said after the bank closes to the North most folks with trucks park there, including her.

I don't think I've had liver in 20+ years...? Mostly it's because it comes in tubs containing more than I care to have on hand. Can it be individually wrapped and frozen for cooking later? If I could find 1 or 2 pieces, I'd have some.

As for potatoes, the skin is the best part. I love mashed potatoes with skins.

I have bought a tub frozen already and thawed it and refrozen the other half. Worked fine. You can also buy fresh tub and freeze the unused portion. I was actually surprised to find it in the frozen specialty foods section rather than a meat case.
