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!

Free chips and salsa!

The delicious farm-raised catfish!
New Tex-Mex restaurant in Lakewood? Yep. I had to try it. I kinda felt like a traitor since La Calle Doce is nearly right across the street. Anyways, I’m glad I did. My dishes were so good! I got an appetizer called “smoked Bob and sausage” that had slow smoked brisket and sausage laid over a bed of queso and served with sour cream, guacamole, and tortillas. I loved it. I tried it with the warm flour tortillas but enjoyed it more on top of a chip. I piled each chip with all I could and probably embarrassed myself with how messy I got, but I just avoided looking around so I could keep pigging out without feeling embarrassed. My friend got the shrimp cocktail for his meal. I tried it. It was nice. Lightly spiced with avocado, baby shrimp, Mexican cocktail sauce, and crackers. For my meal, I had a meal. 😉 I had the farm raised catfish laid over a bed of rice and served with grilled veggies and “drunken” beans. The spices on everything were perfect. Usually I force myself to eat all my vegetables, but it was not “forcing” this time. I enjoyed my veggies.
The patio was pretty cool. They had glass paneled garage doors behind the bar that opened up so that guests can sit at the outside bar and be served by the indoor bartenders! They had four HD televisions that faced the patio from the inside so that the patio patrons could enjoy their favorite sports event. Of course, they had patio tables as well for full service.
Anyways, the food was good, and the service was fast. Sorry I didn’t try the obvious original Tex-Mex dishes, but I like to be a little different than the rest. Check it out!
Juicy pork (this one no bone), okra, cole slaw, and sweet iced tea. Delicious! Ignore the beer. I brought it.
Tried to get a picture of the pie, but kind of got drawn to the neon sign.
Just a small glimpse of the dining room.
This homestyle restaurant just opened. The TVs will be on tomorrow, the house music up soon, and they’ll have a beer and wine license in about three months. I really didn’t mind going across the street to get a six pack! 🙂 Although they’re still putting it all together, and a lot seemed to be missing, the food was great! I had sweet iced tea (and my BYOB), chicken tortilla soup, and the delicious and juicy pork loin chops. The seasoning made it great. For my sides I had broccoli salad and fried okra. I loved them both. I can’t wait for this neighborhood restaurant to bring it all together! I’ll definitely be back.
