Cinco Taco Bar Opens in Preston Hollow Village

Cinco Taco Bar, sister restaurant to Cinco Tacos and Tequila in Addison, opened last week in Dallas' Preston Hollow Village. A fast casual concept with nearly 30 handcrafted taco variations, fresh margaritas, and a salsa bar, Cinco Taco Bar is the creation of CEO Mario Letayf and Executive Chef/Operations Director Antonio Marquez. The team wanted to create a fun, laid-back space for taco enthusiasts to nosh on quality tacos and sip on ice cold beer.

The outside patio has a great view of Preston Hollow Village, and is a great spot to snack on chips with queso and guacamole, while kicking back with a fresh margarita.

Moving on to the main event, the tacos: Cinco has 9 different types of breakfast tacos, served until 11am (and 2pm on weekends). The rest of the day you can have hard time deciding between the 20 other tacos on the lunch/dinner menu, including a rotating taco of the week.  My favorite so far was the Pastor Pork Taco ($3.75) which  comes with grilled marinated pork, grilled pineapple, TOASTED CHEESE, pickled red onion, and fresh cilantro. All of the tacos come served on handmade corn tortillas unless otherwise noted, but you can always sub for flour if that's your preference.

If you only eat tacos on Tuesdays, fear not, there are also enchiladas on the menu, and a little something else called "Piratas", which appear to be a cross between a quesadilla and a burrito. A 9" flour tortilla stuffed with cheese, onions, peppers, bacon, and your choice of Fajita Steak, Chicken, or Shrimp, just add avocado to your Pirata and enjoy!

Complete your meal with your choice of sides like street corn (highly recommend), potatoes, rice, or beans.

Cinco's interior has a rock and roll flair that reflects owner Mario Letayf's rocker days and his passion for music. Lyrics line the large wall downstairs and the upstairs loft. Play "name that tune" while sipping your rocks margarita and awaiting your tacos arrival. 

Cinco Taco Bar is open Sunday through Thursday, 11 AM–9 PM; Friday and Saturday, 11 AM–10 PM.

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 sauce

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 cou

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
