Shuck N Jive at Lovers and Greenville

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.

Mecca Restaurant in Dallas, TX, at Skillman and Live Oak! (CLOSED!)

UPDATE:  This location reopened as Buzz Brews!

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.
