After striking out on the Blue River in Oklahoma fly fishing for Rainbow Trout, decided to stop at Scotty's Blue River One Stop for a Cheeseburger and French Fries. Been wanting to try their burger for some time now, but always had to pass it up due to running late for the road trip back to the Texas.
This round, no time constraints to force us on the road home. So, had dinner at Scotty's. Tasty Cheeseburger... will make an effort to have more in the future. Good way to close a long day fishing on the river!
Been some time since we dined at Choctaw Casino's Butterfield Buffet. Change in the Member Discount made it cost more that we wanted. But, this past week while trying our luck at the slot machines, learned yours truly had a free buffet on his Membership Card!
Winner, winner, buffet dinner! Had several helpings of some old favorites like their Crab Rangoon and gave the Prime Rib a taste as well. Always good when you start gambling with a freebie like this!
Back to Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina... this time for Nachos and Margaritas. Others opted for dinner entrees but yours truly had a big lunch, so an appetizer half-portion and a Margarita or two was good for dinner.

Stopped for breakfast at Norma's Cafe in Plano. Noticed lots of pies and cakes to be had but did well and stuck with ordering breakfast. Was going to order the Chicken Fried Steak breakfast but decided on French Toast. Very tasty! Did see the sign for a Chicken Fried Steak event happening in October!
Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina for drinks last week. Flight of Margaritas is always a winner. Also, tried the Carne Asada. Tasty meal with lots of onions. Liked it but would try another dish next round. It's hard to beat Carne Asadas from Gloria's and Christina's restaurants. That said, the margaritas are a deal as well as the Monterey Chicken. Trouble with the camera - no pic of the Chicken and a blurry pic of the Carne Asada but did get a clear shot of the Margaritas!
Just down the road from the Rustic is Manny's Restaurant. Pleasant surprise finding this one. Tasty Tex-Mex... ordered Enchiladas, Brisk...
