Best Sushi in Plano/Dallas Area

Sushi Sake on Collins!!! i had tokyo one the other day....seems that some of the sushi sits on the buffet lines to long..and i dont know about using the same tongs to pick up 2-3 different types of raw fish seems like a cross contamination hazard to me, been there once and dont plan on going back. ill just still with sushi sake..the yellow tail there is the best in dallas i say

Ozona Bar and Grill

Yes The service is a little spotty, but i always go for sunday brunch, they have an Make your own Bloody Mary Bar, and i always get the egg floretine or the turky wrap, always good eats. gotta love the outdoor seating on nice days.
i usually make it a point not to go to ozonas with a party of 4+ cause like i said the service is usually spotty

Best Chili in Dallas?

It's a chain that i went to but i find that Houstons, has one of the best chili's i've ever had. worth a shot. Only drawback is that it is only served on Saturdays.

El FUEGO!

Hello chowies! or Chowers?
i've been reading up on everyone's reviews and such about el fuego in plano, and boy this is place is pretty good, i opted to go for the 4.99 lunch buffet everyone talked about, but i guess that they have done away with that, unless i did not see correctly, but i did have the taco platter they have, i went for the pork tacos, which were pretty plain and tasteless, but my friend that joined me had the beef tacos and wow they are spectacular. they came with bean and rice for 6.99 which is a good deal and you get three tacos. i'd have to say though i had more authentic mexican food from some of the tanq. off of springvalley. All and all ill be here for more tacos......
