I didn't order a burger at Burger girl...

Burger Girl has been on the infamous Wish List for a long time now. Any girl who is proud enough of her burgers to market them as a restaurant title is a role model of mine. Wasn't sure what to expect, but it definitely wasn't the hooters type feel. Felt like all heads stared when I appeared, a girl there to eat all by her lonesome. 
Lots of business men surrounded me, but the ladies who worked there were friendly and helpful. I was in a bit of a hurry and had no problem getting food, eating, and being gone in about 25 minutes.
The Cadillac Grilled Cheese & Bacon sandwich was absolutely killer. At 7.99, you definitely get a man-sized portion of sourdough bread stuffed with massive amounts of provolone, Vermont white cheddar, american cheese and spicy and crisp peppered bacon.  I was, however, disappointed, because the aforementioned sandwich was s'posed to be served with tomato soup, but it wasn't there, and I didn't have time to wait for some. But the sandwich stood solidly on its own feet, er, bread.  Not to mention I paid the extra buck to sample the loaded cheese fries, and got a massive heap of potato-ey cheese-y goodness.

I know, I didn't even try a burger yet, but I was far too excited about that darned grilled cheese. Next time I promise to try a burger, friends.  And if that one ever opens in McKinney, I'll be much more likely to frequent it.

Peace, Love, and Queso my friends.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story!

The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank.

Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu. 
The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauces. Douse wit…

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this. 
I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts. 
The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell.

El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to expand, and…

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future.

Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's.



National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I couldn'…
