Gordon Biersch

Gordon Biersch for a dinner with the boss in Plano last night!  Decided on the Black and Bleu Burger with Garlic Fries.  Excellent meal that went well with the 16oz dark ale!

Oceans Seafood Restaurant, NOLA

Oceans Seafood Restaurant on Bourbon Street in the fun town of New Orleans for a last meal before getting back on to the road.  Had a great time and was glad to have closed out the activities with a Taste of New Orleans meal at the restaurant.

Was surprised how large the restaurant was, given the small entry ("hole in the wall" appeal!).  Even more surprised with the great tasting food.  Others in our party opted for Blacked Redfish, a Seafood Sampler with lots of Shrimp, Crawdads, and Fish!

This diner went to the Taste of New Orleans meal that gives you Red Beans and Rice, Seafood Gumbo, and a Shrimp Etouffe! Tasty, tasty, tasty....

Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, NOLA

What better way to have lunch while strolling along the French Quarter, then at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company!  Ordered the Fish and Chips with Red Beans and Rice on the side!  Not sure what is happening but I need to loosen my belt loop a little!

Deja Vu, Dauphine Street, NOLA

Deja Vu on Dauphine Street, NOLA is a 24/7 Diner that was perfect for that late night bite after a long day of parades and partying!  Ordered the Seafood Gumbo; partner ordered Red Beans and Rice with Andouille Sausage.  Both were really tasty and hit the spot before calling it a night!

Felix's Oyster House, French Quarter, NOLA

Tried something different... Felix's Oyster House, French Quarter, NOLA for oysters, Gumbo, and a Po Boy!  Tasty Gumbo and Po Boy... but may need to tone down the oysters for this diner.  Tried them cooked for different ways and decided none really were appealing.  Did not try some Gator Tail fried; taste like chicken!

Natchez Steamboat River Cruise for Lunch!

Had lunch on the Natchez Steamboat River Cruise!  Got to taste a variety of foods, see the sights along the river, and even see a fully working steamboat engine!  Great time to be had with tasty food and unlimited Bloody Mary's Mimosas, and Hurricanes!  For the food, everything was good but the big standout was the Bread Pudding Cake!  Did not get a picture but it's damn good!

Embers Steakhouse, Bourbon Street, NOLA

Having fun in the Big Easy, first night was a blast.  Had a craving for Shrimp Etouffe.  Gave the Embers Steakhouse a try and was pleased!

Gloria's Restaurant in Garland

We love eating at Gloria's Restaurant.  Have been to their locations in Dallas, Fairview, and Garland.  In all cases, we have not been disappointed.  This round, it's steak and eggs for Brunch!

La Finca Chaquita

La Finca Chaquita for lunch... went with the Carne Guisado.  Tried it before, tasted great, going to order it again in the future!

Cavalli Pizzeria and Wine Bar

Ran up to McKinney this weekend for some wood fired oven pizza!  Went with a glass of wine and our favorite pizzas... the Dallas and the Supreme Margharita (sp?).  Tasty, tasty, tasty....

Stayed Home This Time...

Cold weather inbound. Did not feel like going out for dinner.  Decided to stay home and cook something.  Never did it before but here is a go of Thai Chicken Satay, homemade Peanut Sauce, and Spicy Red Curry Chicken... Tasty!
