Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina

Stopped for lunch at Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina just off the 121 Tollway heading to Allen. Never been here before. Went with the Queso and Chips and a Lunch Special - Tacos and Enchiladas. Tasty meal and a reasonable price. Still prefer La Finca Chaquita but will be back to try other entrees - likes the Carne Asada. Saw someone order it, and it looked tasty.

Also, will be back for Margaratas... ordered a flight of Margaritas and a Margarita with Sangria Swirl. Great time "tasting" each one with an added bonus - they made them strong!

Too early for Happy Hour prices but still a good deal. Will have to come back and try them during Happy Hour!

Luvie's Fil-Asian Restaurant in Plano

Was out and about in Plano; saw a restaurant that caught our eye tucked away in one of the strip malls along Legacy. Luvie's Fil-Asian Restaurant offering a Filipino food. Always on the lookout for new places; ordered three combos that included Pork Adobo, Menudo, Mung Beans, Pancit Bijon, and Barbecue Chicken. Throw in a side of Siopao and heaping servings of rice... we left full and satisfied!

PS: They have a secret hot sauce that is spicy; reminds us of Mcilhenny's Tobasco Sauce but different.

Branch Convenience Store for Breakfast Tacos

Rain delay in getting out to the Lake. Stopped at the Branch Convenience Store for Breakfast Tacos and then headed to the casa to wait out the "cloud" that is passing.

Breakfast Tacos were okay. No red sauce but they did have the green sauce. This one does not compare to the Sac-N-Pac's in New Braunfels. Will have to pass on this one for future taste test.

La Finca Chaquita for a Chimichanga

Changed it up this time at La Finca Chaquita. Ordered the Beef Fajita Chimichanga. Tasty meal but could not finish it; filled up quickly on it. Love it!

TGIF at Arlington

Stopped for a burger at TGIF in Arlington, TX. Ordered a burger with Buffalo Wings skewered on top. Tasty burger... had pimento cheese in it! Very tasty, so were the fries and the "cotton candy" hand poured drink! Appetizers were tasty too... Fried Cheese and Fried Green Beans with "wasabi" sauce that was spicy but not too spicy!
