Nice restaurant for Duncanville. Friendly host and hostess. However, not all the wait staff are the best. Look for those who really care about the customer's orders and really try to get it right the first time and get it to the table hot and presented nicely. Some of the best are Angie, Bobbie, Christina, Gloria, Heather, and Kelly. I have had bad experience with some of the others. I ordered a steak cooked medium well. The steak was still red and I sent it back. Some ten minutes later the steak was returned cold and only just a little less red. Send it back again - this time is was returned hot but cooked to a piece of leather - almost black. I could hear the waitress talking to the cook saying "He is one of those you just can't please." By that time I had given up on getting a refill on my iced tea. We had guests and took them there for breakfast on Saturday morning. Bobbie was our waitress. I ordered pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon. When she brought the food I pointed out that the pancakes were so cold they would not melt butter and the bacon was hard, cold and burned. She immediately took them away and I could hear her telling the cook to "get it right". Few minutes later she brought out a perfect plate of food - just as I had ordered it. I recommend the place - just get a waitress who is really interested in serving what you ordered.
The NEW Ernie's of Dallas ROCKS!!! While there are MANY places for the ""youngins"" to party... Ernie's is one of the VERY few places for the 35+ cr…
I love Matts!! We 1st ate at Matt's when they opened up on Ferguson road, in a little building. We were gonna eat then go out to the lake, so we had an ice chest with beer and snacks in our car. Matt came out to introduce his self. Told us to bring in our ice chest. They didn't serve beer yet but we could bring our own. As we finished our meal, Matt came and sat down, on the ice chest. We had a great time!! After that we ate at Matt's couple times a month. My daughters always ordered the burritos. They were so huge and yummy! Over the years I've tried everything on the menus, but my all time favorite is Cheese & Onion enchiladas with rice and beans! And used to come with a few chips with queso on the plate, soo good!! What ever brand of cheese they use and how ever they cook it, I've never had anything better! When Matt's moved to Lakewood, I would see women come in with fur coats, and diamonds that would blind you, and sit next to a family with jeans and tee shirts. Everyone had a good time and was treated as an old friend. I am soo glad Matt's is opening up in Allen, it's closer to my home!!!
My wife and I went out to Mi Piaci for a date night and have a really nice experience. As I was choosing a wine from the list, the waiter actually recommended a less expensive Pino Noir than what I was going to select because he felt it had better flavor for less price, and he didn't disappoint. The calamari was great, and the lobster bisque was the best I've had in quite some time. Our entrees, which the waiter helped us choose, were delicious, and we split the chocolate cake to finish things off. The ambiance of the restaurant was somewhat "Dallas" but still very comfy with a beautiful dining room, great lighting, and a pretty view of a pond with a fountain. Overall, a nice place for a mid to upscale dinner.
