I could spend an entire day in this Ross Dress for Less with my 8-year old granddaughter just on clothes, shoes and accessories for her alone - and that's before I start on lingerie, decorative items and household things for myself. Wonderful prices on name brand merchandise. Tuesdays are 10% off for "seniors" over 50.
PROS: Great name brand merchandise at terrific prices.
Moving within the past few months to a new location just down the street, this Marshall's went from dark and crowded to bright and spacious. The usual Marshall's great prices on clothing and shoes for women, men and children, housewares, decorative items, linens - mostly recognizable name brands. New stock coming in daily.
PROS: Great assortment of merchandise. I could spend the day.
Seafood Shack subscribes to a few coupon outfits, so watch for a 50% or buy/one free for your first visit. Fried catfish is good, and undeniably fresh. But I find the portions too small, and would gladly pay more for an "all you can eat." Dinky little hole-in-the-wall, which I find inviting for variety.
PROS: Good catfish.
CONS: Small portions of catfish.
Frankie's has persevered where others have failed. This wonderful little spot tucked in Casa Linda Plaza has continued serving great food for well over 30 years. The Hungarian dishes are outstanding, and you'll enjoy the neighborhood ambiance.
PROS: Great food, lasting power!
There's a reason the Library Bar in the historical, Oak Lawn Melrose Hotel has been successful so many years and enjoyed by thousands of patrons. Elegantly appointed, comfortable and sophisticated, with live piano music, create the ambiance you want to take friends to again and again.

There's a reason The Mansion remains the finest hotel in Dallas. And if you're planning a wedding and reception and can afford the best, this is where you will have it. Amazing food, gorgeous facilities and a professional, helpful staff make The Mansion hard to beat.
PROS: Wonderful food, gorgeous facilities, perfect for a wedding reception.
This internationally esteemed dance company has been beautifully dancing across Dallas for 30 years. This year it's dancing like none other! Watch for up and coming Dance Africa program, the annual Black History Cultural Awareness programs in February, a Spring Celebration in May, Majestic Theatre matinees and so much more.
PROS: Highly trained, dedicated performers.
Rates are pretty much the same from one rental company to the next. These guys were helpful and accommodating. I ended up keeping my rental for a few extra days that I needed it, and everything was handled smoothly.
PROS: Accommodating and helpful service.
Another restaurant that has stood the test of time. A small hole-in-the-wall, but clean and very inexpensive. The usual Chinese menu of egg rolls, broccoli beef, garlic chicken, egg drop soup and so on.
PROS: Neighborhood has counted on it for years.
Another restaurant that has stood the test of time. Unexpected, unusual menu along with the basic dishes. Beautiful location, excellent service. Try the lettuce wraps.
