Earls Opens at Legacy West

Avocado Super Toast

Canadian "unchained" restaurant Earls celebrated their grand opening festivities last week at Legacy West, and the new space is absolutely stunning. Who would know that the restaurant originated as a burger and beer joint more than 30 years ago?

Earls is named after Leroy Earl (Bus) Fuller and his son Stanley Earl Fuller. I wondered why there was no apostrophe in Earls, and this explains it: it's plural, named after the two namesakes.

Each location of Earls is tailored to the city it inhabits, with decor and menu items that the population will find instantly familiar, even when dining at Earls for the first time.


Queso Fundido
You know I had to try the Queso Fundido Dip, a menu item they of course had to include on their first venture into Texas. Any regionally specific menu in Texas is obligated to include some form of queso. (I believe there's a law. I may have written it.) The dip is a three-cheese blend, topped with chorizo and salsa fresco. Dip to your delight! This queso has been Delia Jo-approved.

You'll also spot lots of sushi options on the menu at Earls. This incorporates the fresh, healthy side of their global fusion of flavors. We tried the Earls Spicy Tuna Super Press and a Dragon Roll.

The main courses at Earls run the gamut from burgers to signature steaks to ribs, and even a quirky combo Steak & Sushi, which people swear by. There are also noodles and rice bowls, cooked seafood dishes, and even tacos to be enjoyed.

Earls is also a perfect happy hour destination, with a perfect patio situation (maybe after the dog days of summer end) and a fab drink menu. Sip on one of their 5 versions of an Old Fashioned, or go full on OH CANADA! with a signature Caesar cocktail (drinks quite like a Bloody Mary, just with added Clamato). They have HH twice a day at Earls, from 3-6pm and from 9-11pm.

Head out to Earls Legacy West for a taste experience from around the world, and adore your stunning surroundings, all while being thankful Earls has become so much more than a burger joint.

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'…
