2017 Taste of the Cowboys

Cane Rosso will be a featured restaurant at Taste of the Cowboys, and will open a location at The Star later this year

The North Texas Food Bank and the Dallas Cowboys will host the 2017 Taste of the Cowboys, presented by Caliber Collision, on Sunday, May 7 at The Ford Center at The Star in Frisco. The event will benefit the North Texas Food Bank, and will be the largest charity event held at The Star since its opening last year.

This year's Taste of the Cowboys will feature past and present Cowboys players – including Travis Frederick, Chad Hennings, and Preston Pearson, plus live entertainment from Reckless Kelly.

Event-goers will have the opportunity to partake in tailgate food stations featuring 30 different restaurants and chefs, including Lockhart Smokehouse, Cane Rosso, Perry's Steakhouse, and Tupelo Honey. (Here is a full list of participating restaurants.)

The evening will also include both a live and a silent auction.

Event proceeds will benefit NTFB's Child Programs, which assist in providing food access to the one in four North Texas Children who could use food assistance. Last year's event provided access to 1.28 million meals for kids in need.

Update: As of today, tickets are sold out, but you can still bid on auction items (for a good cause) online.

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
