Usually when running errands there is really no time to stop and eat. But after spotting a new Jack in the Box in the Oklahoma City area of May and NW 50th area (opposite Target) we could not resist jumping in for a quick bite.
My most favorite place to hang out in Dallas is this great Pizza place called Sfuzzi, located in Uptown Dallas, TX.
We happened to bump into this historic restaurant one Memorial weekend and have never forgotten how cozy it was, how welcomed we felt and how we were treated like royalty. The open wrap around and covered patio with numerous cooling misters drew us in. We were hot from the walk down McKinney Avenue and needed to cool down.
If ever you are in Guthrie, OK and are feeling a like lunch or dinner, you need to check out the Stables Cafe. This is where we eat every time we go Antique Shopping, and we have done it at least three times.
The food here is great. I cherish the Bar-B-Que pulled pork that comes with a portion of coleslaw, so large, you don’t need to have another side.
Oh how we love Texas Road House! (TRH). This is one of our special places to go for special events like birthdays, anniversaries and any big celebrations. We love the way the place makes you feel; like you have gone back into time. The warmth from the wood panels and the never ending buckets of peanuts are very welcoming. If you are a party of two ask if you can seat at the bar area. If you are lucky, you get to seat down right away and avoid the long waits.
The place: Louie’s grill and bar
Our reason for going to Louie’s: Every meal on the Louie’s Restaurant menu is under $10?
The appetizer was on the house. A lovely bowl of fresh chips and dip. Nice!
The drinks: I like a place that serves juices, because to tell you the truth, I don’t really fancy soda, bottled or fountain. I got my favorite; Orange juice. Delicious!
What we got and what you could get:
Blue cheese burger
The reason Hubbie gets this one is the crumbled blue cheese. He says it creates a sensation in his mouth that is indescribable.
Southwest chicken platter
Because I grew up eating real food (aka non – fast food – kind of food), I always prefer not to eat food that is burger related or burger appearing. So, I went for the platter section and selected the blackened chicken breast topped with chipotle honey mustard, grilled onions, jalapenos, applewood smoked bacon and melted mixed cheese. What a treat of flavors. I selected a side of fried green beans and a side of broccoli salad.
The Broccoli salad was a special treat. I had never eaten anything green or veggie like that was so crisp, so crunchy, and so nutritious looking. It tasted absolutely delicious with the chicken.
Louie’s has several locations in the metro area. My favorite is the Lake Hefner location. The ambiance at this Louie’s is heightened by the romance of the lake water, the cool breeze and the fact that even while sitting inside you can see the lake and sail boats cruising by. This is just perfect for a nice romantic dinner with your other half. Go early so that you can catch a glimpse of sunset over the lake. Enjoy!
Of course you can select more fabulous items any time on the Louie’s Menu . The menu may vary in your location as they strive to use the freshest ingredients in each location.
