Chuy's Restaurant

Chuy's located in Plano just off of 75 North between the Parker and Spring Creek exits.  Place seems always busy, so we decided to give it a go for lunch.

With a variety of salsa to choose from, you should find one to your liking.  Also, tacos, burritos, and enchiladas tailored to your tastes make for ease of ordering.

Trying to be different, went with the Elvis Green Chile Fried Chicken, tender chicken breast cooked with a Lays Potato Chip breading. Came with green chile rice and refried beans.

Not a bad deal!

BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse

Located in Allen in the Village Shopping Center is BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, a microbrewery and restaurant with a sports bar feel.

Food is tasty with a lot to offer on the menu.  Beer lovers get a chance to try something different.  And, you are surrounded by televisions providing the latest scores and highlights!

Non-beer lovers tread lightly when selecting a beer.  Be advised the taste can overpower those not used to stout ales.  That said, do offer the Berry Cider for those who do not like beer; try it and enjoy a White Zinfandel with bubbles.

For dinner, we opted to go with the Best Beginnings™ Appetizer Combo to kick off the meal.  Then, we went with the Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken, and Cuban Burger.
BEST BEGINNINGS APPETIZER COMBO. This sharable platter is designed to delight all tastes. It features a generous assortment of four of BJ’s most popular appetizers: Spinach & Artichoke Dip, Mozzarella Sticks, Avocado Egg Rolls and Santa Fe Spring Rolls.
PARMESAN CRUSTED CHICKEN. Our marinated chicken breasts coated with Parmesan cheese and crunchy Panko bread crumbs, lightly pounded and pan fried to a golden brown. Served with white cheddar mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli and topped with a lemon Chardonnay butter sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
CAESAR SALAD.  Crisp, chilled romaine lettuce tossed with our oven-baked seasoned croutons, fresh Parmesan cheese and our own rich, garlicky Caesar dressing. Available with grilled chicken or Cajun shrimp, flame-broiled or blackened salmon.
CUBAN BURGER.  Our half-pound burger served sandwich-style topped with oven-roasted ham, Swiss cheese, crispy dill pickles, dijonnaise and mustard.
Check it out when you get a chance!

Shogun Hibachi and Sushi Japanese Steak House in McKinney

Shogun Hibachi and Sushi is one we recommend for "Benihana-Style" food but better.  Located at 1230 N Central Expressway  (Hwy 75) in Mckinney, we strongly suggest trying them out in lieu of Benihana's.

Why?  The food tastes better!

With that understanding, try any of their combo dinners on the menu.  If unsure, go with the Chicken and Shrimp combo or the Steak, Shrimp and Chicken combo!  You won't be disappointed.

Consider the prices moderate to expensive but well below the "chain prices" you get at other Japanese steak houses.

Check it out when you get a craving for "cook the food in front of you" cooking!
