La Finca Chaquita.... for Pollo Asado!

Decided to have dinner at our favorite local restaurant in Allen.  Had a hankering for their Pollo Asado entree.  Grilled Chicken with sauteed Onions, Spanish Rice, Beans, and Tortillas!  Filling meal that includes Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, and Sour Cream.  Will be back again!

Babe's Chicken House in Burleson

Have tried Babe's Chicken House in Richardson, Carrollton, and now Burleson.  All with the same results... large portions that leave you stuffed.  Four of us stopped by the Burleson restaurant for lunch while passing through the area.

Ordered Chicken Fried Steaks and proceeded to satisfy our appetites.  Only complaint... the food coma that followed!

Do stop by when you get a chance.  Just be sure to be ready to eat!

Village Burger (Revisited)

Had the Bleu Burger, Shoe String Fries, and a Margarita.  All is good!  Still recommend Village Burger for a great burger and margarita!

Can't Miss With This Combo!

Shogun in McKinney (Revisited)

Had dinner at the Shogun Hibachi and Sushi Japanese Steakhouse in McKinney.  Great meal, great taste, like it much better than other more "known" Japanese Steakhouses!  Will be back again....

Twisted Root Burger Company (Fairview)

Checked out the Twisted Root Burger Company in Fairview for lunch today.  Ordered a Bleu Cheese and Jalapeno Burger, a Peppercorn Ranch Burger, Straight Fries, and Drinks.

Filling meal... burgers are made using a 1/2 pound of beef!  Like the light buns.... just be prepared for the price.  Lunch meal price tag was just over $25.  More than we really like spending for a burger lunch meal.

That said, the restaurant offers a Pickle Bar that includes a "Chuck Norris Recipe" called the Atomic.  Also, there is a Chipotle-Ancho Ketchup, a Barbecue Sauce, and a Honey Dijon Mustard that provide a new twist to the normal condiments.  And, their Root Beer has caffeine!

The decor is based on 50's drive-in movie theme -  a "Snack Bar" for the kitchen and lawn chairs and picnic tables, vintage movie posters, and a large movie screen playing - guess what - movies on the wall.

Burgers are filling, beer is served, and other burgers like Elk and Buffalo are offered.  Comparing with other burger joints in the area, consider the following:
  • Mooyahs for price, quantity, and taste (of a traditional burger).
  • Village Burger for their drink specials and sweet potato fries.
  • Twisted Root Burger Company for a taste of something different than a traditional burger.
