PF Changs (Watters Crossing, Allen)

Had dinner at PF Changs.  Been to other locations but this was the first time to visit the restaurant at Watters Crossing in Allen.  Ordered appetizers - Crab Won Ton, Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and Hot and Sour Soup.  Yum, yum, and yum in all three dishes!  Ordered dinner entrees - Mongolian Beef, Spicy Green Beans, and Combination (Chicken, Beef, and Shrimp) Fried Rice.  Tasty, tasty, and tasty in all three entrees!  Ended the dinner with a Great Wall of Chocolate Cake - six layers of chocolate cake, add the chocolate icing, chocolate chips, and rasberry syrup....  End Result:  Outstanding Dinner!  As the picture below shows, cake did not last long!

Cooper's Pit Bar-B-Que (New Braunfels)

Had lunch at a local favorite in New Braunfels.  Cooper's Pit Barbecue offers a variety of meats, just no plates.  Food is served on trays and butcher paper is used instead of a plate.

You chose your meat, they cut it up and wrap it, then pickup a container of potato salad, cole slaw, and cobbler if you like.  Pay the cashier, then head to a picnic table with jars of Jalapenos placed within easy arm reach wherever you sit.

Before you start eating though, you serve yourself a healty portion of beans, add onions and pickles and bread, and then pick up utensils.

"It's all about the meat" is what the Restaurant is famous for.... In our case, we were not disappointed.  Like the concept of unlimited portions of beans, bread, and jalapenos. 

Will keep this one in mind when we are back in the area and have a craving for barbecue.  Standout favorites this round were the Beans (very tasty) and Pecan Cobbler "a la mode"!

Bottomline:  Left the Restaurant in a food induced coma!

Crosswalk Coffeehouse and Cafe (New Braunfels)

Out and about this weekend.  Stopped at the Crosswalk Coffeehouse and Cafe in New Braunfels and had a Breakfast Taco and a cup of coffee.  Went with a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Taco; added Potatoes and Black Beans.  Throw in the Salsa,... had a filling breakfast and a tasty meal.  Will keep this in mind when we are back in the area.  Will do like Arnold, "I'll be Back!"

Adobe Verde (Gruene, Texas)

Stopped at a Tex-Mex Restaurant while out and about this weekend.  This one is located in historic Gruene, Texas and is just up the road from Gruene Hall - famous dance hall and music venue for many famous musicians.  Adobe Verde offers some good eats and live music.  Ordered Chips and Queso, a Melon Midori Margarita, and the Diablo Steak.  Queso and Steak were tasty and worth a return visit.  Margarita can use more alcohol....  Will be back!
