Greek Isles Grille and Taverna: Greek Food! Greek Isles Grille and Taverna Review

Actually, this restaurant is in Plano...not far from Dallas. It's a small place at the back of strip mall. It's clean and service was good and the food is decent. I haven't had too much Greek food...mainly gyros...this time I had the moussaka...it wasn't too much different than lasagna. The stuffed grape leaves were excellent. I would go back for them...or just learn how to make them myself.

Favorite Dish: stuffed grape leaves...a.k.a. dolmas

Address: 3309 North Central Expressway - Suite 370

Comparison: about average

Directions: in Plano near Central Expressway and Parker Rd.

Phone: 972-423-7778

Price: US$11-20

mardi gras food - Dallas
Big Easy French Quarter Cafe: mardi gras food

Really good cajun food; this cafe/deli wouldn't be out of place in New Orleans. They serve Zaps chips and Dixie beer too...Dixie Blackened Voodoo is a great beer. The muffelettas are huge but you can get halves or quarters. Gumbo...jambalaya...desserts...it's all there Cajun-style.

Favorite Dish: Muffeletta sandwiches

Address: 4021 Preston and Spring Creek (2nd location)

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: It's not in Dallas but in Plano which is a suburb north of Dallas.

Taco Bueno: Taco Bueno

I don't eat much fast-food, but I like to feed on the burritos at this place. It's not as well-known as Taco Bell, but I prefer Bueno. It's cheap and quick and good for tourists looking to spend more time seeing the sights than sitting in restaurants.

Favorite Dish: Bean Burritos!

Directions: They are here and there - just keep watch for one.

barbershop quartet singing at Spaghetti Warehouse - Dallas

barbershop quartet singing at Spaghetti Warehouse

Spaghetti Warehouse: that's a spicy meatball!!

The Spaghetti Warehouse restaurant chain originated in Dallas in the West End. It's a fun place to eat, and the food is pretty good too. It's in an old warehouse building and is decorated with memoriablia from the early 1900s. There's even a trolley car in the restaurant where you might be lucky enough to get a table. It's usually pretty busy on the weekends.

Favorite Dish: spaghetti and meatballs

Comparison: about average

Directions: West End and other locations

Fletcher's at the Fair - Dallas

Fletcher's at the Fair

Fletcher's: corny dawgs!

Corny dogs are hot dogs on sticks...then they're dipped in batter and fried. It might be OK to eat a corny dog once a year, but too many of these things are dangerous. Supposedly, the corny dog was invented by Fletcher's in the 1940s. They've been a staple at the State Fair ever since. Fletcher's also sell frozen hot dogs for cooking at home...in a frozen food section near you!

Favorite Dish: Corny Dogs.

Address: Fair Park and other places around Dallas.

Comparison: least expensive

Price: less than US$10

Cafe Brazil: Cafe Brazil et al... Cafe Brazil Review

Cafe Brazil has many locations around Dallas. It used to be an after hours hang-out; after a night of partying, people would head for the Cafe Brazil off of Central in University Park for coffee and omelettes...not sure if it's still like that though. Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner...with a Brazilian touch.
Dallas is a big restaurant city. The Dallas Dinesout website listed below will help find any other kinds of restaurants.

Favorite Dish: omelettes

Directions: several locations

Comparison: about average

Directions: just north of downtown Dallas - the trolley cars pass right in front of the restaurant.
