Was out and about in Deep Ellum looking for a place to have a tasty lunch. After wandering the area and taking in the sights, opted for Bucky Moonshine's Southern Eats and Bar. Good thing... found the best tasting Gator appetizer. It's been hit or miss with this appetizer... too tough, no taste, funny taste, etc. But this time, tender and tasty with a dipping sauce that reminded us of a Honey Mustard Dijon but sweeter.
For the main entrees, went with the St Charles Pasta, Blackened Catfish Atchafalaya, and Fried Catfish Ponchatrain. All were tasty. Will be back just for the Gator appetizer alone but do plan to try other entrees as well!

Opted for fish and chips and spinach dip to go with our flight of local brews at Henry's Tavern. Also, did a little strolling around at the Shops at Legacy. Did notice there seemed to be more places to eat then places to shop.

Tried a new place... Mesa's Mexican Grill in Allen. Tasty dishes with some nice looking drinks. Went with a Margarita to go with dinner - Carne Asada and Chicken Fajitas smothered in onions. All were tasty. Drinks felt mild... but did sneak up on your's truly, stronger than they taste!
Back to Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina for more food and drinks. This time had fajita tacos and a chicken entree... all were good. And, oh by the way, like the Charro Beans! Of course, the Margaritas are strong and tasty, too!
