My standard is the dbl steakburger with cheese, fries and sometimes I make it a platter and go for a cup of chili, too. It's not TX chili, but its pretty good. They have a good pattymelt, too. My wife likes the orange freezes, they are like a dreamsicle milk shake.
There's something about the fried, thin patties and the shoestring style french fries. I suppose part of it is nostalgia, I grew up eating at S & S, so its a comfort thing.
All my native Texan friends here in Austin don't really dig it the way I do. It might be something you have to grow up with to appreciate. Part of the charm up north is the waitresses tend to be middle-aged to elderly and call you Hon. The waitstaff here are usually teenage single moms with shit for brains.
