Chamberlain’s Dinner at Oktoberfest in Addison... #oktoberfestaddison

Went to the Oktoberfest in Addison for the first time last year. Had a great time, so decided to come back again this year. This time we went with Chamberlain’s Dinner event. We liked it because the $55 ticket provided:
  • Gate Entry
  • Dinner (3 courses - appetizer, dinner, and dessert)
  • Beer (Pualaner Beer in three different brews)
  • Table Seating in the air-conditioned beer tent!
  • $25 Gift Card for dinner at Chamberlain's
The appetizer was a ham soup that was tasty, dinner was a german sausage and pork chops with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut (saute'd instead of pickled), and dessert was a strudel covered with a sweet syrup.

Beer gave us a buzz, the food filled out tummies, and the music kept us entertained... glad we decided to come back this year and go with the Chamberlain's Dinner event!

PS: If you decide to go, opt for the second seating at 8:30 PM so you have a guaranteed table in the air conditioned beer tent!

Freebirds for Burrito Bowls...! #freebirds

Stopped by Freebirds at the Village in Allen. Opted for Burrito Bowls... went with lime rice, black beans, steak, lettuce with lots of shredded cheese and sour cream and then topped it off with the jalapeno green sauce. Tasty meal that was filling with the right amount of "heat" thrown in... yum, yum!

PS: Did notice they use the rectangle bowl instead of the round one now.

Another Guiso Mexicano entree from La Finca Chaquita! #texmexfood

Dinner at La Finca Chaquita last night. Guess what... Guiso Mexicano anyone? Always tasty but do get there early; small restaurant with limited seating... the Dinner rush may delay things slightly. Still willing to wait though!

Lion and Crown Pub (Watters Crossing) #wattterscrossingallen

Had a bite and a beer at the Lion and Crown Pub in Watters Crossing (Allen, TX). Went with the British Nachos and Fish N' Chips and pints of Guinness and Dos Equis. Tasty meal with some great live music by the Aaron Hendra Project. PS: The Bread Pudding was a great ending to cap of the meal!

La Finca for Tacos and Enchiladas

Dinner earlier this week at La Fincas for their "Choose Three" Dinner. Went with two crunchy beef tacos and one beef enchilada and a side of rice and charro beans. Always a tasty meal; this visit did not disappoint... will be back again for more!
