Bio
I rate a restaurant according to its peer group restaurants, so when a burger place gets a 4-star rating from me, don't think I'm saying it's nearly as good as a 4-star fine dining establishment. I am a somewhat picky diner when it comes to service and the availability of a decent wine list. These restaurants are there to serve the customer, and if they don't do well in that respect, they are not doing their job.

III Forks Dallas, TX
We had reservations for a party of 6 for 7:30 on a Friday night. We were seated promptly, were pleased with the wine list (although they could do better), and our waiter was courteous and attentive the entire time. The filet that I had was cooked t ... more
Simply Fondue Dallas, TX
My second visit here was even better than the first. Very romantic, GREAT atmosphere for conversation...wish they would tone down the music a bit, however. There was a 20-person teenaged birthday party when we were there, which was a little distrac ... more
Kobe Steak Restaurant & Lounge Dallas, TX
Always expect a wait on weekends! Luckily, we met up with our dining companions after they had waited for 1.5 hours...we had an earlier commitment that evening and so we didn't have to endure that long, crowded wait in their lobby as the others had. ... more
Hoffbrau Steaks Addison Dallas, TX
This is one of the few family-friendly steakhouses on Beltline. Prompt weekend seating in comparison to other restaurants on Beltline. Although it's not a high-end steakhouse, it certainly has some decent selections on the menu. I typically prefer ... more
Ghengis Grill Dallas, TX
This is actually a review for their restaurant on Beltline...we were seated promptly for a weekend evening, about a 5 minute wait. The high seating is a bit uncomfortable. Good selection of meats and veggies to put in your bowl...make sure you over ... more
Center Restaurant Muenster, TX
The Center has been around forever, and it's a place I return to about once a year. The German food is great, particularly their sausage and their German potato salad (almost vinegary). Local people regularly go here for pizza, although I must admi ... more
Houston's Restaurant Dallas, TX
Decent food, good service, very small wine selection, very crowded. A very nice bar area lessens the blow on the typical long wait. I would highly recommend their spinach dip. My dinner companion had their entree special, Crab Cakes, and was very ... more
Wok-A-Mole Chinese Mexican Corpus Christi, TX
On my annual summer trip to Corpus Christi, I was persuaded by a local buddy of mine to go to this establishment. He said he absolutely loves this place and eats there all the time....yipes! This is the last time I ever dine with him, because the fo ... more
Slogar Bar & Restaurant Crested Butte, CO
Our yearly Christmas (and sometimes Spring Break) trip to CB would not be complete without a trip to the Slogar. Home-cooked meals are great after a long day of skiing when you're just too exhausted to do it yourself. Service is good, atmosphere go ... more
Wooden Nickel Crested Butte, CO
A great after-ski hangout and very popular place for the 20-30 crowd, the hunting lodge atmosphere makes this a great place. Great stew, and a great burger...a Bison Burger...you must have these when you are trying to warm back up after a day on the ... more
