Japan House in Plano.

While out shopping, stopped by the Japan House at 300 West Plano Parkway in Plano.  It is a buffet style restaurant that offers sushi, steak, and seafood.

Entrees are cooked in small portions so the food remains fresh and hot.  Sushi and Sashimi Bar is first rate.  Add in the Seafood and Salad Bar, Udon Noodle and Shabu Shabu entrees, Hot Grill and Tempura section, and a Hibachi and Dessert Bar and you have a wide variety of dishes to select.  Bottomline: You will find something that you will like.

Expect to pay around $20.00 for Lunch; more for Dinner.  However, you should not be disappointed.

Village Burger Bar at Watters Creek

Had a light dinner at the Village Burger Bar at Watters Creek in Allen.  Been wanting to try the place for awhile, but havebeen unable to make it till today.

Ordered the Swiss Burger, Village Cobb Salad, Basket of Fries, and a side of Sweet Potato Fries.  Burger was good but really liked the Salad with its fresh tomatoes and vinagrette dressing. 

Moreover, the Sweet Potato Fries made for a reason to return.  Add the daily drink specials, and we will be back.

Cozy atmosphere, orders are placed at the counter, and  then food brought out.  Also, when you opt for a pitcher of beer, you will like the pitchers used - beer stays cold like it was fresh from the tap!

H-3 Ranch's Live Hickory Wood Grill

Had lunch at H-3 Ranch's Live Hickory Wood Grill located at the Fort Worth Stockyards.  Had the Chicken Fried Steak before and enjoyed it.  Opted for the Rack of Ribs today.

Ribs were spicy but were very good eating.  Throw in a House Salad and some real homemade Lemonade, and you good not ask for a better Lunch or Dinner!

  • Thai Box Fried Rice with Chicken
  • Peanut Chicken with Jasmine Rice
  • Red Curry with Chicken

  • Tom Yum Soup with Shrimp
  • Pad Thai with Chicken
  • Mini Egg Rolls with Sweet and Sour Sauce (especially like the Sweet and Sour Sauce).

Dodie's Place Sports Grill

Located at the Village in Allen, across the street from the Allen Event Center, is Dodie's Place Sports Grill.

Different menu compared to Dodie's Cajun Grill, formerly of McKinney.  No Sausage and Red Beans and Rice dish but the frozen Hurricanes remain the same - GOOD!  Just make sure to order them frozen, not on the rocks.

Food is standard Sports Grill fare, catering to sport fans eating and drinking before the game.  Else, nothing on the menu to breakout from other grills.

Do keep an eye on the music venue as some decent bands are featured on the weekends.
