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!

123Now,  if ever you go to Texas and in particular Fort Worth, TX,  make sure to check out any Riscky’s Restaurant. We had been to the downtown Fort Worth location and this time we decided to visit the Stockyard location, Riscky’s Steakhouse. When we got there, we could not believe our eyes. It was about 12:00 noon and there were tons and tons of people;hanging out on the terrace, eating, laughing and having a good ol’ time.
We went in and were told that it was a 25 minute wait for a table. “Did that mean that the place was THAT good?,” I wondered. Anyway, as we were passing time checking out the menu we discovered that we needed to cross over the railway tracks to get the famed Buffalo Burger. This was but a few steps across the way to Trail Boss Burgers, another  one of the Riscky’s restaurants. We agreed to sit outside and were seated immediately. I ordered the four piece catfish (they have never ending catfish) and hush puppies while my hubby had the buffalo burger, fries with a side of coleslaw. Just in case you don’t believe me , look at this delicious food. All for under $25.00! What a deal!

This was like the best catfish I have ever eaten. Fresh and soft, spicy and delectable. Mmhhh mmhhh. I ate real slowly, enjoyedevery morsel and just loved it. What a way to end an afternoon, with a great bite to eat and simply the most scrumplicous find. You need to check it out!
