This is your typical mom and pop donut shop, complete with glazed, cake and the standard donut offerings.
Their hidden gem is the sausage rolls, with croissants instead of the usual biscuit-type covering. The croissants are buttery rich, and the sausage moist and flavorful.
They're under a buck and well worth a special trip!
PROS: Sausage rolls
CONS: otherwise average pastry offerings
This is a branch of the mom and pop bakery/cafe that started in Dallas years ago.
This cafe features light lunches, including chicken salad, a club sandwich, made from scrach soups, and quiches. Prices are upscale, with most lunches costing about $10 or so.
Their bakery features homemade masterpieces such as mile-high cakes, including carrot cake and an amazing 'pretty in pink' strawberry cake.
They also have pies, brownies, cupcakes and the like, all with a designer flair.
They're famous for their iced cookes, and I tried one and it was good, but not quite worth the $2-$3 price tag.
They also have prepared meals to go, ranging from Beef Burgandy to Green Chicken Enchiladas (about ($12 for the small, $29 for the large) which would be great for company.
Catering and boxed lunches are available, and I would presume the quality would be an exceptional as the fresh offerings found at their restaurant.
PROS: Amazing baked goods, nice light lunch offerings
Burgers bigger than average, awesome home-made potato chips, a huge selection of salads, appetizers and a host of other goodies greet you as you open the cartoon menu!
This is a family-friendly joint, with a big bar area for grownups who don't want to sit next to an entire soccer team! They have happy hour daily, trivia in the bar (the smoking section) and the service is typically attentive.
Prices are average, and the food is well worth the price paid. Make sure you save room for the fried pies - they offer about 10 different choices and the chocolate and cherry sell out quickly, so have a second choice in mind if you get there late!
Open till 11pm weeknights, until 12am on Friday and Saturday. If you join their email club, you'll receive something free/on sale almost every month - quite a deal!
PROS: Burgers, Chips, hours of operation
The burgers here feature the basics, wrapped in paper, and are juicy like I remember from being a kid!
Sides include fries, tater tots and delish onion rings, and the prices are very reasonable.
Service is minimal, with your order being taken at the counter and the food delivered on a cafeteria style tray! Decor is minimal, and drink refills are free (and self-serve).
PROS: Tasty burgers
This eatery features a wide variety of pizza, pasta and baked dishes, with a spinach calzone that is sure to please!
Loads of cheese, spinach and herbs ooze from the homemade crust, making it a favorite of mine!
The service is reliable, friendly, and the owner is typically behind the counter, making the food as you order. If you visit more than once, they will remember you and treat you like family!
Good prices and the minimalistic dining room isn't overwhelmed with noise or clutter!
PROS: Calzones, Pizza and the owners!
The specialty here is the 'by the slice' pizza, which I think tastes alot better than if they make you a whole pizza fresh!
Try the meat-lover's stuffed pizza - a massive two-crust creation, served with a side of sauce, for dunking!
The antipasta salad is fresh and tasty, and the house dressing is light and perfectly compliments the ingredients in the salad!
Prices are right, with dinner for two easily under $20!
PROS: Variety of pizza choices, quick service, fresh salads
CONS: Sometimes overrun with high school kids!
This is a typical burger joint, offering burgers, chicken sandwiches, the usual fries, tater tots, etc. They also serve breakfast, usually for under $4.00 for the works!
The secret find here is their chocolate shakes - beware of the large...$4.00 for a 32-oz massive creation of awesome flavor. They advertise Blue Bell ice cream and the shakes are thick, rich and the large is really too big!
Service is slow most times, with the order taker not being able to collect your payment, so there's often a lag while they track down the 'money man'. Food is cooked to order, so it takes a while, so be sure you're not in too much of a hurry!
PROS: Shakes, breakfast
CONS: Speed of service
A family-friendly place, complete with a game room for the kids and gourmet coffee for the adults.
They have the most awesome sundaes, including a blueberry muffin one that is outstanding!
They use Dryer's ice cream (not my fave) and the shakes come complete with whipped cream - even if you get them to go! They're open early for the coffee/pastry crowd and stay open until 10p weekdays, 11pm weekends!
Prices are similar to the major ice-cream shops around town, but the variety is incredible and beats the chains..hands down!
PROS: Variety of sundae choices, open till 10pm week nights!
Start with chips/salsa - not warm bagged chips, complete with a bowl of Pace-tasting picante sauce...for $4.39. Plenty of chips/salsa, but we left a bunch because it was so blah!
Buffalo Chicken strips are small, and 'hot' isn't really hot at all. A little more kick to the 'hot' than hooters, but the overall quality lacked the flair of Hooters!
Ambiance is the same as Hooters - girls clad in skimpy tank tops, itty bitty shorts, pantyhose (??) and tennis shoes...running around saying 'howdy' to everyone! They use the same plates, the same paper towels on the table concept, and their ranch/blue cheese is a little tub of packaged glop!
We had 1 order buffalo chicken strips ($6.99), chips/salsa ($4.39), one iced-tea ($1.99), two draft beers ($2.15 each), ranch and blue cheese dressing ($0.59 each) and an order of six celery sticks ($0.39) for a total, with tax of $20.39...WAY too much money since we left hungry, but nothing else appealed to us!
Do yourself a favor and stick to Hooters if you want good wings! If you're just going for the eye candy, they're about even!
PROS: Service (attentive, as I am guessing they're overstaffed right now)
CONS: Pricey, quality of food, too much like a knock-off Hooters!
I've been here a few times and the prices for drinks (and snacky-foods) are sky-high...a $4.00 diet coke, are they kidding? The comedy talent is good; however, they pack so many people in that it's not even a comfortable venue...more like a cattle call when they open the doors!
Not recommended at ALL!
PROS: Good comedy
CONS: Expensive food/drinks, way too many tables, too squishy!
