  • Katie

    I think they buried the lead with all that re-vamped truck talk.

  • babyarm

    The question is will Casey pack her knife she used to stab Carla in the back with!

    What happened to the “I’m done with Top Chef” Casey Thompson?

  • liz

    bring my husband back a Runza ;>

  • Darren

    I am curious as to where they are going to park that truck in West Village.

  • DALLASChef

    Bring ME back a runza as well!!!!!

  • Dallas pasties

    Let’s make it a special day and invite the Romulan to hawk Casey’s t-shirts along with her aprons. I’d buy tickets to see those two vie for the spotlight. Poor, poor Tre.

  • Runza…the meal in a bunza. When I used to work for “the man”, our CFO muled 2 coolers full of Runzas back from Omaha!

  • Drew

    I thought Casey was “so done with Top Chef” after the Carla incident

  • Regan

    Drew, money talks bull**** walks. She’s so getting paid.

  • James T

    Sorry Drew and Regan. Apparently it ain’t over til its over in this sorry case.

    It’s obvious Casey has learned the Lisa Garza art of hocking herself shamelessly. Just check Lisa out on

    What’s next Casey, taking youngsters on $100.00 tours of restaurants while teaching them “manners” like Lisa?

    So unpack your cheap aprons girls and at least give us here in Dallas a good show while your 15 seconds lasts.

  • Marci

    mmMmm Runza….haha i miss that place. Thankfully I go back to Omaha a couple times a I can get my fix. 🙂
