Brisket Enchiladas at Kenny’s Smokehouse

It’s not a stretch to say that Kenny’s Concepts seems a little bit incapable of screwing up their grub. At least that’s my consensus. Every Tuesday Kenny’s Smokehouse, located in the Shops at Legacy in Plano is now rolling up something extra special: Brisket Enchiladas. If you’re a little skeptical,  ignore it and prepare your palate for unexpected Texas greatness.  Served three to a plate with a side salad, these things are like three smoky, meaty, saucy wrapped tender brisket blankets. They’ve got a tiny bit of heat and  a tiny bit of sweetness from the barbecue sauce. Finally,  they round out with the tender salty smokiness of the brisket.…

The Greek Food Festival of Dallas is a Hit Rain or Shine

Come rain or shine, people are going to get their gyros. The 62nd Greek Food Festival of Dallas was hit with a little bit of the wet stuff, but, the annual 3 day festival carried on. With their biggest turnout on Sunday, guests lined up for mouthwatering gyros, surrendered to the honeyed sweetness of loukoumades and gleefully chomped down on scrumptious souvlaki. And, don’t even talk about the spanakopita, dolmades or fried feta bites. Those are just the classics. New to this year’s festival was Galaktoboureko, a creamy custard held inside a flaky crispy phyllo pastry shell. It was a weekend of gracious grub, traditional Greek dancing and an all…

    It’s nearly time for one of the most delightfully delicious food and drinking events of the year, Chefs for Farmers.

Getting Fried at #getfried Fry Cafe

  #getfried Fry Cafe Part of the joy in being alive comes from knowing that fries exist. And there are so many versions of their fried potato existence.

It exists. #getfried fry cafe recently opened in Deep Ellum and they are serving everything from the basic French fry, to waffle, to gravy and cheese curd doused Poutine.

Shell Shack Makes Henderson Home

Shell Shack – 4 Stars Seasoning soaked fingers are getting easier to come by. Shell Shack Uptown closed their doors recently and reopened a bigger, shellier space on Henderson Ave. This is just one of several latest Shell Shack locations to open. With the Henderson spot, Shell Shack is giving customers more patio space, more drinks and plenty of seafood. If you’ve never been, I always recommend going for a bag, preferably the Kitchen Sink with Dungeness crab, tators, sausage and broccoli. Crab connoisseurs should try the bairdi snow crabs here. It’s a little sweeter but less dense than your standard snow. According to Chief Executive Officer of Shell Shack,…

Whiskey Cake Comes to Irving

    There’s whiskey and there’s cake. The name of this restaurant alone brings joy to my taste buds. Now, Whiskey Cake is spreading that whiskey soaked joy to Irving. The eatery recently opened their sixth location, finally providing the folks of Las Colinas with a little taste. With their latest location, you can still expect to be whisked away by their ever growing whiskey selection. For the grubbers that know, their deviled eggs are still a staple, with the ingredients changing often. One day their filled with smoked salmon, another topped off with fried chicken skin. It’s rather remarkable to know that a deviled egg can be so damn…
