Brooklyn Pie Co.

the pizza joint next to the parmer little woodrow's used to be another name, and was owned by or a partnership with the LW people. perhaps they realized bar without kitchen + next door pizza joint was a lucrative venture, and bought out or franchised the brooklyn pie co. pretty sure BPC was separate and un-related when they first opened elsewhere, IIRC.

i was really excited when i saw the sign ages ago because there's not a ton of stuff in this area, and it seemed like it was going to be an interesting place. although tino's isn't my favorite, they are catty corner, and have more value.

really? we had a good time and good eats when we went, although the veggies on the charcoal grill were really bland. we did have some kind of a deal thingie, though, so also were not paying full price.

round rock definitely needs more dining options so hopefully the ramen and izakaya dishes are done well.

slowcooked, i intend to, but it's out of the way for me so will require a special trip.

this was one of those situations where i was out running errands in the neighborhood so swung by on the way back to work.

yeah, i'm eating low glycemic for health reasons, so all that rice was a waste. and i hate raw onions, so there goes more than half the plate. the chicken and grilled tomatoes were decent enough. i wish it came with a small side salad or more veg.

i liked shandeez when i went a few times, but we brought some friends and they still bitch about how they hated it. more for me!

went today, and was bummed. this is what you get for the $10 chicken kebab. it took almost 40 minutes. the disarray is from it shifting on the car ride home :-)

considering this is a pretty to-go place, and 3 other people were served while i was waiting, this doesn't bode well.

i had plenty of time to peruse the small market. they had some interesting looking labne and feta, plus a ton of halal stuff (including "breakfast beef", a.k.a. as non-pork bacon).

dojo izakaya over at 183/burnet closed, but per eater, the chefs are taking the izakaya & ramen dishes over to tokyo steakhouse in RR. SCORE!

dojo was pretty good, i was just never down that way.

oh bummer, it filled a niche. enjoyed that place when it first opened, but haven't been back because it's out of the way for me most of the time.

Fork and Taco

the queso fundido sirloin is totally boring. all the fundidos are not my favorite. i think they really excel at the different breakfast tacos, the mole, the mojo, and specials like the deli belly and scallops.

interesting. haven't been over there in a few weeks, but wondered if perhaps weekend and/or dinner was keeping that place afloat.

the service is always horrendous when i went (which was usually late lunch), and they never clean/bus anything. but, it was pretty decent pho and in the neighborhood so... yeah.

bummer, it was there for ages, and a lot of my coworkers liked to go there.
and yes, this shopping center's restaurants are dwindling.

Curly's Carolina Brick and Mortar in Round Rock

just came in to post the same thing. sounds financial. too bad. i really liked their meat, and it was so nice to have a place like this in downtown RR. they did a LOT of work to that space, too, to open it up with more seats next door and out back.

this thread caused me to eat lunch at taco deli today. the deli belly special is really tasty. and the mojo is a fish taco i can actually eat, because it's not battered. plus it's not tilapia, which i think is gross.

Favorite meats at classic BBQ places?

turkey does always seem kinda boring to me in comparison with the other bbq offerings, especially if the skin is good and tasty on the chicken.
