Pappa's in Houston

I was the same way - expected some jacked up Red Lobster, but they ROCK IT HARD and the food was super fresh and wonderfully served. Would go back in a minute when I am back in HTown...

Chinese New Year this THURSDAY! (7Feb)

My drycleaner gave me the "blah, blah, blah fat choy" this morning and told me it is Chinese New Year this Thursday. If you have any Chinese peeps you deal with, give them a red envelope with one of those annoying gold dollar coins in it this Thursday and they will dig you big time - maybe even invite you over for a wild-ass dinner - yes, it happens! Anyway, I have had him give me the low-down on some killer Pho shopes in Big D - All w/in like 5 mins of each other too - but I cannot think of any killer Chinese places? Anyone on here who is Chinese and can swear on a good one? And I don't mean round eye chinese, but the real deal, snails and black bean sauce, Mah-po do-fu (yes, I know it is tofu...I am just trying to impress folks, I do live in Dallas...), Jao Tze (pot stickers), etc... My boy Randall Lee at GoLo's in DC Chinatown ust'a rock it hard, but sold out when the MCI Center when in and vanished. Where in Big D for the Crazy Chinese stuff? Please advise...and yes, I will drive!

Review of Steve Fields in Plano

Ahhh! YOU RULE! I love it. Finally someone to just let it rip. These people take GOOD MONEY and the deliver so-so service! You should stopped short at Rafain if you want some killer cow, pig and chicken - make 'em bang you out some chickne hearts for the "home boy hattrick!" Also try Tx land and Cattle on Monday for their Smoked Sirloin special - awesome!

Where can I find good pizza in Dallas?

Campisi's? Who are you kidding? Talk about a gimmick that has run its course... HORRIBLE so-called pizza. I will walk across the steet to Taco Bell and get one of those flat Taco Pizza thingee's first - better toppings! Campisis = Italian for Yeech!

Where can I find good pizza in Dallas?

Right on both counts - Als and Sals are BOTH populated with surly greaseballs in wifebeaters who, were it not for their excellent pie, would be lynched. "Pizza good enough to stave off a lynchin'!" Now that's a tagline!

Carmines is starting to give them a run for the above features...

Where can I find good pizza in Dallas?

DUDE! I am SOOO on this place! I cannot believe this place exists in NoTex! I am there tomorrow! Thanks for the good call!
A REAL pizza lover!

Paczki in Dallas?

Dunno for SURE but try the killer Polish deli on 75 @ Forrest - SW corner (Euro Deli II or somesuch?). If they don't have it - and I bet they do - they will for sure know where you can find some!
Vegas

Simply Fondue (DFW)

Both are a GYP! Avoid them unless you want to impress someone with overpaying for affected service and mediocre grub. Yeech!
