I'm always checking out new bars and restaurants, and my friends are always telling me to start a blog since I love to eat and drink! I decided to start the blog to highlight a few of my favorite places in Dallas as well as places I have never been. I'd like to show my support for my service industry friends and showcase what they do. I'm just a waiter who likes good food, good beers, good cocktails, and good specials! I'll try to keep all my posts short and sweet so you can move on to the next one. I feel like saying too much can ruin it. Let me know what you think!
I usually come here for the snow crab legs. They’re always very good! Of course, it comes with drawn butter, roasted potatoes, and corn on the cob. It’s a pretty large portion for only $18.99. So large that if I don’t crack and eat fast enough, it gets a bit cold in the end, so crack fast, y’all! Cajun seasoning gives it a nice kick. Yes, I went cajun again. Sorry. I gotta stick with a good thing.
Anyways, this time I decided to try things I’ve never had. The menu said that the crab stuffed shrimp was an employee favorite, so I HAD to get it. It was fantastic! The texture, sauce, batter, and seasoning made me so happy! (Check out the pictures). Also, the blackened chicken pasta is “the most popular item on the menu”, so my friend got it. It was actually suggested by a past employee that now works at Sundown (I’m currently the mayor there on Foursquare. It’s a big deal. Not really.) Well, he loved it, and I loved every bite I stole from him. The food was so good that I didn’t even notice that karaoke was going on until I left. They really didn’t have a ton of beer selections, but the food made up for it. Check it out.
We doused it with hot sauce. Yeah, it doesn’t normally come like this. It tasted better than it looks. Damn neon lights!
I love playing games after stuffing my face and drinking beer!
The patio at Barcadia. Giant Jenga!!!
I had the wings, shiner barbecue and original spicy, and the Barcadia burger with pepper jack cheese, green onions and fruit as my side. My friend had the chicken fried steak and gravy with veggies and cheddar mashed potatoes. Of course, everything was very good. We both got rather full and enjoyed $3 Texas beers (Tuesdays). Video games are free on Tuesday, but only learned this after shelling out about $5 in quarters! I thought it was half priced food, but that’s on Mondays. Still, our tab was under $60 even with all that food and about 5 or six beers. I didn’t look at the check. I just paid it. One habit I should probably change. We had fun (cuz I won most of the arcade challenges), and we left satisfied. Thanks for being there, Barcadia. It’s nice to escape to the past every once and a while.
