They have great prices on my cigarettes. Mine are one of the most expensive on the market. They are 50 cheaper per pack. The clerks know me and ask how many when me or my husband walk in the door. Everyone there is very polite to all. I'll spend my money where they remember me and make me fe…

The Goat is an odd place. I've heard some of the best live blues & jazz around in this bar and I've been around. It's 'out of the way' location alone marks it as 'easy to miss'. It's a dive bar, unpretentious for the better part and now sees a cross-over to the 20 to 30's crowd (karaoke 'Punk to Bob Wills'... lol) on Wednesdays and Sundays. Although the gems are the Monday night Blues Jams with Tony DeCicco, Perry Jones & James Perkins and every Thursday night, Pete Barbeck with Tim Neilley & Fred Gleber host the currently longest running Blues and Rock & Roll Jam in town! They started playing there when it was called the 'Office Lounge' just over 10 years ago. Like any other bar or music venue, they have their slow nights and then pack 'em the next. The list of artists who have at one time or another hit their stage, is impressive indeed. Including (outside the above mentioned main-stays), - random order - Lucky Peterson, 'Jr Boy' Jones, Joe Jonas, Pops Carter, Johnnie Woods, Bill Eden, Texas Slim, Hash Brown, Lance Lopez, James Hinkle, Andrea Dawson, JR & Sister Rose (for years on Tuesdays), The Kenny Barker Band (with David Jo Frame & Don Landry - special guest 'Bruce Bowland', also a long loyal mainstay on Tues., Fri. or Sat.), TopCats, Silvertones, Rob Hunt, Aaron Burton (recently), Jackie Don Loe with Jay Dronge & Peter Kaplan, every 3rd Fri of the month... I can go on forever...(don't be mad cause I didn't mention yer name...) You wanna hear someone blow? I take my chances with The Goat on Mondays and Thursdays anytime! For Fridays and Saturdays, check their calendar on myspace.
Went for all-u-can-eat crawfish. In a nut shell: a) Dishonest management that support false advertising and absolutely will not stand behind their assurances. b) Sloooooow service (took about an hour to get our 1st batch of crawfish). c) Hate to admit it after the horrible service and management, but the crawfish itself was actually pretty good - large, spicy and garlicky. Regarding a), the situation was that I called and was absolutely 100% assured they were running a $12.99 special this Fri, sat and sun but the hostess that answered the phone. I even asked her to double check and she supposedly "went to ask" and came back and said yes, definitely. Yet upon arrival, the management refused to honor it. I even played them the recorded phone conversation from my call (I have a call recorder app on my phone), and they just said sorry, they acknowledge what we were told but NO. While the normal $17.99 price is actually a fair price for the all-u-can-eat, it's a matter of principle and a business standing behind what they promise, and clearly, this place does not have such ethics at all. I only give it a 2 instead of 1 because, again, the crawfish itself, after the aggravation and super slowness, was admittedly good, and I would be lying to say otherwise. Still, be very cautioned about the unscrupulous management. Watch you bill for erroneous add-ons and expect a built in 18% gratuity (perhaps part of the reason for slow service).
I have been going to Red River in Dallas for a little over a year now. Great place to dance and meet up with friends. The dancers are of all skill levels and they do provide dance lessons on Thursday and Friday nights. My friends and I have generally had a great time on Thursday and Saturday nights. However, for the last two weekends we have encountered a couple of really annoying things. While they do have a great house band, the volume was set so high that it leaves you unable to even have a conversation without yelling. Ears were ringing for the next day! Really...do you think we can't hear it? It was so loud that you had to hold your glass on the table or it shimmied off on to the floor. NO KIDDING! As well, there has been a progression of people bringing drinks on the dance floor and they spill causing potential danger for those that are trying to dance. Let's not forget those who are just standing on the dance floor talking. Seriously, that is what the bar and table area are for. The dance floor is for DANCING!!! It's typically the younger crowd (those under 25) and they do allow minors. However, let's get some help from the bouncers here. When three of my friends/co-dancers told the bouncers, they shrugged it off and said, 'just let us do our jobs' but then did nothing. As there are not many country bars in the Dallas area, you would think they would try harder to make it a more pleasant experience for those who really want to dance.
This place is AMAZING, they have a great set up, beautifully decorated,top of the line. The waiters are very friendly and helpful, they are very knowledgeable about all the food and drink selections. We had a party of 20 so we were in a private room with two superior waiters, anything we asked for we received in no more then 1 minute later. The food is outstanding, we had the crab dip, the rock shrimp and the crusted green beans as a appitizer, the rock shrimp wasnt my fav but it was still pretty good, the crab dip and crusted green beans are a must. I had the Turf & Surf as my entree it was outstanding, the steak was cooked perfect with great flavor and the shrimp were HUGE it was served on top of a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and we also had their skillet mac & cheese =D it was all VERYYY good. We finished off dinner with the chocolate cake....OH MY GOODNESS, it is heaven, its pretty rich but its served with a rasberry drizzle its a must also. If you are a martini person the dirty martinis are good to! I have nothing bad to say about this place at all, the valet was very good itself and it was complimentery. (Tips only). When in Dallas Hibiscus is a must, be prepared to spend a good chunck of money but it is allll WELL worth it!

This company...or at least this location treats their employees like dirt. They play favortism, do not think it is a problem when health codes are broken, and do not pay employees for work performed. There is a person that works in the bar that refuses to wear any type of hair restraint. Supposedly she had brain surgery YEARS ago. Any type of excuse for this has long expired. She also wears very long fake fingernails and seems to shower in perfume. All of these things are against health code regulations but the management QUOTE "We don't see a problem" UNQUOTE. There was also a person that worked at this location that performed MANY catering deliveries. The company is supposed to pay the person that performs the delivery a delivery, but this person NEVER received any such pay. It was approximately $452. This is a substantial amount to rip someone off for. The company also placed 2 room mates and best friends as General Manager, and Associate General Manager at the same store. WHAT KIND OF PLACE IS THIS? They also let certain employees get away with poor work performance while they punish others for better performance than that of the people that perform poorly.
As a foodie who loves eating out, York Street is hard for me to rate. The service is great, the food is great and the atmosphere is great, but relative to the the expense it is hard to judge. It is a very expensive restaurant and they only serve around 10 tables in a cute and cozy house. I try to judge my restaurants on some sort of scale to value because I don't want to end up giving good reviews to all nice expensive restaurants and bad reviews to less expensive restaurants because of course for the expense they can afford better food, service, etc. York Street is a tough one for me. It is a great restaurant and they do basically everything well. Their menu is creative and their food is very good. Their service is very attentive, etc. etc. I think I take it down to a very good 4 stars, because I do feel it is just a little overpriced for even as well as they do do everything. And I also feel that there is at times there is a little ego that bleeds through in their service that comes from patrons consistently telling them how great they are and how cute and cozy and wonderful their restaurant is.
My friend and I wanted to go somewhere new and to a place that was different. All Good Cafe has a very different atmosphere that is eclectic and welcoming. It was avert busy Sunday brunch time but we were seated within 15 minutes. One thing I noticed while waiting to be seated was that many tables were open but there were not enough employees to seat people or clean up tables after a customer left. I order chips/salsa and the migas for my meal. The migas were delivered first, not the chips/salsa which I would expect. The waitress told me she forgot to put in the chips/salsa and apologized. A minute or so later someone else brought me the chips/salsa and he told me I would not have to pay for them and apologized for the mistake. My actual meal was DELICIOUS...the migas were cooked right and the potatoes were amazing. I think they were short staffed on this day, otherwise they would have had better service. I would definitely go back again.
Beautiful and Cozy... This is not a place that will rush to make incredible food... You can tell that everything is scratch made... Yes, everything... If you are looking for quality service, incredible food and an intimate time with friends and family, then I highly recommend this place. My wife is still talking about how great my entree was... Southern Style Shrimp En Croute (shrimp in Herb butter wrapped in scratch made pastry). If I was in Death Row, this would be one if the items on my platter. Yes, I'm a Foodie! I saw the previous review and I wanted to say that on the menus it stats... That if you leave the tip section open on the credit card receipt, it will add 20%... Why write a bad review, because you didn't see it posted and/or didn't want to tip someone... Own it... Write in $0, if that's what you want or tell them what they did wrong...
Elaine's has relocated to a brand new building a few blocks from the original location. The food is just as good as it was at the last location. The King Fish is my favorite. The fish is very fresh, you have a choice of how mild or hot you would like your fish served. I prefer the hot, because in intensifies all those wonderful exotic spices that Elaine's is known for.The Ox-tails are a treat in themselves, wonderfully tender and delicious. the side dishes of beans,rice and cabbage stand alone by themselves. The wait staff are very attentive and cordial. They make you know that they appreciate your business. Dining at Elaine's will make you think that you are on a island.
