BEST MASHED POTATOES
What's the world coming to anyway? Restaurants these days haven't the slightest qualm about serving instant mashed potatoes that taste exactly like what they come in-cardboard. Lucky for us potato purists, there's Lone Star, owned and operated by two fellows whose mamas brought them up right. They start with real Idahos, whip them (skins and all) into sturdy drifts and serve them with wells of cream gravy. These spuds are just loaded with integrity (not to mention calories), and we wouldn't have them any other way.
