Cowboys Red River
I have been going to Red River in Dallas for a little over a year now. Great place to dance and meet up with friends. The dancers are of all skill levels and they do provide dance lessons on Thursday and Friday nights. My friends and I have generally had a great time on Thursday and Saturday nights.However, for the last two weekends we have encountered a couple of really annoying things. While they do have a great house band, the volume was set so high that it leaves you unable to even have a conversation without yelling. Ears were ringing for the next day! Really...do you think we can't hear it? It was so loud that you had to hold your glass on the table or it shimmied off on to the floor. NO KIDDING! As well, there has been a progression of people bringing drinks on the dance floor and they spill causing potential danger for those that are trying to dance. Let's not forget those who are just standing on the dance floor talking. Seriously, that is what the bar and table area are for. The dance floor is for DANCING!!! It's typically the younger crowd (those under 25) and they do allow minors. However, let's get some help from the bouncers here. When three of my friends/co-dancers told the bouncers, they shrugged it off and said, 'just let us do our jobs' but then did nothing. As there are not many country bars in the Dallas area, you would think they would try harder to make it a more pleasant experience for those who really want to dance.

Draft Picks
Went for all-u-can-eat crawfish.In a nut shell:a) Dishonest management that support false advertising and absolutely will not stand behind their assurances.b) Sloooooow service (took about an hour to get our 1st batch of crawfish).c) Hate to admit it after the horrible service and management, but the crawfish itself was actually pretty good - large, spicy and garlicky.Regarding a), the situation was that I called and was absolutely 100% assured they were running a $12.99 special this Fri, sat and sun but the hostess that answered the phone. I even asked her to double check and she supposedly "went to ask" and came back and said yes, definitely.Yet upon arrival, the management refused to honor it.I even played them the recorded phone conversation from my call (I have a call recorder app on my phone), and they just said sorry, they acknowledge what we were told but NO.While the normal $17.99 price is actually a fair price for the all-u-can-eat, it's a matter of principle and a business standing behind what they promise, and clearly, this place does not have such ethics at all.I only give it a 2 instead of 1 because, again, the crawfish itself, after the aggravation and super slowness, was admittedly good, and I would be lying to say otherwise.Still, be very cautioned about the unscrupulous management. Watch you bill for erroneous add-ons and expect a built in 18% gratuity (perhaps part of the reason for slow service).

Maggiano's Little Italy
We were in the Dallas area to celebrate our son's arrival home from university and our nephew's graduation from SMU. My husband and I have dined at Maggianos in Las Vegas many times with each time being better than the last. Maggianos at North Park offered exactly the right balance of a special celebratory dinner with a relaxing, "dress casual" experience we had in mind. The restaurant decor is comfortable, the host welcoming, and our waiter made us feel we were the only diners in the restaurant. Portions are generous! The boys ordered Eggplant Parmesan(outstanding), my husband ordered his favorite appetizer, Onion Strings(fabulous)and I ordered the Beef Medallions with Balsamic Cream Sauce(excellent). The restaurant location is easy to find, the parking is ample, and the noise level in the dining room is no distraction. A chain restaurant with a notable, enjoyable and affordable experience each time is the take away.

Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse - West End
We ate at Sonny Bryans in the West End while visiting the King Tut exhibit at the DMA, this location is a convenient quick train ride from the Museum. Located in quaint area of restaurants in Dallas, the West End, Sonny Bryans has the best pork ribs I ever had. Try the big rib man plate, around 12 ribs for 18USD, but way more than enough food for 2, so you can share. It comes with 2 hearty sides, a salad, fresh rolls, and a hearty portion of pickles, sliced onions jalapenos. Sit by the window, you get to look down at all the street traffic and passersby, also has outdoor seating but it was too windy that day. Excellent onion rings, a must have and try the turkey and brisket. The smoked sausage was mediocre. Service was excellent. The lavatory is located in the basement, accessible thru a lift. Sonny's has multiple locations, and when we asked around for the best bbq, Sonny's was recommended again and again.

Dee Lincoln's Bubble Bar & Private Events
Dee Lincoln mentioned her cajun background, which may explain why the Crispy Oysters were the star of my dining experience along with the Bananas Foster Crumble. I’m impressed with the breading and comfort feeling after taking a bite of the oysters, and the sweetness of the bananas foster transported me to a New Orleans cafe. These items left me wanting more. I think the real lesson here is that if you eat here, the Cajun items are the way to go.Also, the Sushi Pizza intrigued me. The creamy sauce spiked with Sriracha and lots and lots of wasabi tobiko (flying fish roe flavored with Japanese horseradish) onto ahi tuna and tempura rice crust to pull it together. It’s a great starter or snack to enjoy while you dine here.

Delta Charlie's Bar & Grill
Delta Charlie’sI do not normally write reviews, but I had such a great experience at Delta Charlie’s Restaurant that I am letting others know about this gem. The experience started with a Groupon for the combined airplane ride and meal, always a great way to start!!!. I was a little concerned about the flight as my wife does not like to fly, but she was very comfortable with the plane and we both enjoyed the flight around Dallas. After the flight we settled down to a surprisingly good meal. The service was excellent and friendly. Although it was our first trip to Delta Charlie’s the young lady who served us made us feel like we were part of the family.Overall, an experience I would highly recommend to othersDon S

Williams Fried Chicken
Excellent fried chicken which is far superior to the big-name places. They also have tons of things which aren't on the online menu like sandwiches, catfish, fried livers & *corn fritters* which are 2die4 good! BIG portions of side orders like spicy rice (yummy!), fries & mashed potatoes. The only downside is they're often busy and it's not uncommon to wait, but their food is well worth any minimal delay. Actually, I was stunned to see they'd received two such low ratings here, so 4 stars from me is probably more realistic. Still, we've eaten at Williams 10-15 times and barring the occasional wait, I cannot recall EVER being disappointed with the food.

Soulman's Bar-B-Que
I when to soulmans yesterday and brought two sandwiches round beef slice and sauage. got the sandwiches to go, on our way back home I open up and my beef sandwiches was full of fat, yes fat, I waste my time and money for that sandwiches never again will I eat at this soulmans I don't like giving money away, I want good food and not fat. if that is what you serve then I I want be back and nor will anyone I tell how sorry the food was. what a waste, customers are your business if you don't car about them you will not be in business much longer, maybe that is why there was no one there buying the food they too have received the say.

Liu's Kitchen
First of all Liu's is a Chinese Restaurant, they do not specialize in 'BBQ ribs and Chicken where chicken 'grizzle' would be present.My significant other and I decided to try them today and WHAT A Treat! We liked the food so much we decided to find a "Review Website" and rate them.Maybe just be mindful that english is not their first language. The lady was friendly and diligent so she made it easy to order. The food was well made, Very tasty and better than some of the more expensive Chinese Restaurants we frequent. And, for us, it was take out. It was our first and NOT our last time ordering with Liu's Restaurant!

Just a moment...
