La Calle Doce at Skillman and Oram!

I went to La Calle Doce Mexican Seafood for their lunch specials.  Go figure!  My first lunch special post!  It’s probably because I’m not a big fan of daywalking.  So, I decided to take one for the team and do this for “you people.”  By “you people,” I mean normal.  Also, I took another one for the team and did this for the “not lactose intolerant.”  The food coma afterwards was worth it!  I got the sour cream chicken enchilada that came with beans and rice all for $7.95!  Delicious.  My buddy ordered the first special off the board for $5.95.  I think they were crispy chicken flautas with beans and rice.  He gave me a taste.  Really good stuff.  It’s funny that the cheaper special comes with a cup of chicken tortilla soup!  It’s okay, I incorporated the complimentary chips and salsa into my meal again.  My pictures aren’t too exciting, but the entrees look awesome on their website.  Lunch was good and cheap, but I MUST come back for dinner.

Oh!  Apparently, this place burned down recently (probably just the inside), and it took them eight months to rebuild.  It looks completely different.  They moved the bar closer to the front door.  Great idea!  Also, they have a private dining area, dining upstairs, and two patios!  Anyways, check out their link below.  Good stuff.

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.
