Plano one is better, could just be the drive to it building up the appetite though
Yes, and there's a great Walmart in Plano too.
Instruct her to visit the Torchy's nearby (2 near Galleria) and order the Scallywag & Missionary style pork. Then enjoy the ridiculous 'thank you' sex you receive when she gets home.
I hear the cheesecake factory in Jort Worth has 2 more pages on their menu than the Dallas locations.
Average at best.
Jort Worth is a humorous nickname
It is Gators Nation's #1 travel destination
Nick & Sam's Steak was great
It's actually a real thing.
No desire to see Dallas ever.
You could rent a car and do a whole Texas trip, assuming Kip can get time off.
And all of the metroplex rejoices.
Got a nonna reservation this weekend
Slow bone BBQ
Kennys wood fire grill- about 8 minute drive up the tollway.
Rissoto stuffed wood fired quail
I need this in my life
Got kinda drunk in dfw terminal c this afternoon in celebration of being alive after taking off from a sandstorm that would make darude jealous in El Paso. Jesus Christ the southwest needs to get their nature together.
I did this for work 2 weeks ago. Not sure I would recommend it.
My hotel in San Diego last night lost power because of a little rain.
Kip makes his own hours breh.
Hello dallas friends
dallasdawg dump a.tramp GoodForAnother even though you don't live there no mo THF BayouMafia
Heading down this weekend for a combine in Duncanville and was looking for recs to stay and eat in South Dallas or Duncanville area if that's not a shithole. I usually stay downtown or on the north side and am not familiar with going down in your fine town.
Smoke for brunch. Meddlesome Moth for dinner and beer, Casa Rubia for tapas. Those are my suggestions.
stay: anywhere not in the south dallas or duncanville area
eat: anywhere not in the south dallas or duncanville area
How much for an a.tramp take home platter with a happy ending?
srs though Smoke is good, but Pecan Lodge is goat bbq in Dallas. it's in Deep Ellum so it's close to the south side. there's a really good rib joint down there but I don't remember what it's called. Chicken Scratch would be pretty easy to get to
I'd stay somewhere downtown or the Nylo on the south side. don't know much else about down there
Yeah this was my worry. Have always heard it was a shitty area
You missed it by a week, smoker was just fired up Saturday. Happy ending is still on the table though.
Quite the wave of emotions reading this post
Places to eat
-your wife's pussy
Shit I am still here, I land late Friday and will be around all weekend. If you want barbecue, hit up Pecan Lodge in Deep Elum but be prepared to wait. I love the Deep Elum area for food and drinking options. Adairs is a great hamburger and beer joint and usually has live music. Brunch at the Green Door is fantastic.
If you want Mexican food, check out Meso Maya is unbeatable. If you want a place to get drinks downtown, try Happiest Hour as their upstairs patio has an amazing view.
If you are looking for places to stay, I would check out Grand Prairie as they should have spots which normally serve the Cowboys stadium and I don't think there is anything going on right now.
Stay the fuck away from Oak Cliff. Bishop Arts District is a new area which is taking off. We did a bar crawl down there a few months ago which was a great time.
The best part of Dallas is Ft. Worth and not having to go to Dallas
This thread is absurdly quite.. is there another Dallas thread I'm not seeing?
In any case, I'm moving to Dallas from NYC within the next 6 weeks and figured I'd ask about some housing advice. My parameters are pretty flexible:
Looking for a 1 bedroom (would consider a suite, but enclosed bedroom is preferred)
Any neighborhood including from West Lemmon over to Knox-Henderson, down through Uptown and even Downtown
Ideally less than $1500 per month, with this time of year being the best with all the specials (look & lease, signing deductions of $500-$1000, etc) I think I can find a really good deal in the $1100 to $1300 / month spot
I've been told that Smart City Apartment search is the move, and am currently vetting places with them. Some of the apartments I've looked at and considered are the following (let me know if any of you Dallas brethren have thoughts/reservations/experiences with these):
Aura on McKinney (right between uptown and KH)
Gables Uptown Trail (right on Katy Trail, next to Ice House)
Case Building (Deep Ellum)
Looking forward to the move, and thanks for any insight.
My best advice would be to not move to dallas
Dallas is for lovers? More like dallas is for LOSERS lmao
How old are you? Are you single?
I'd probably do Gables if single and under 32, but I'd be surprised if you can find a non-studio for under $1,500
Aura would be my second choice.
I love Deep Ellum, but I wouldn't want to live there.
I'm sorry man
Younger than 30. Not single. I like Gables, I also like Aura. Currently looking at both with deals for a 1 bedroom for around $1350. Thanks for the insight - are parts of Deep Ellum similar to the yet-to-be gentrified areas of Knox-Henderson?
BTW, I've lived in Dallas for 6 1/2 years. Here is my assessment.
Lot of great restaurants. Tex-mex food here is second to none.
Great bar scene
Lot of hot single ladies
Good drug scene (if you're young and into that)
Perpetually booming economy.
Relatively affordable housing. You can afford to buy a home here, which is not always the case for a large city
DFW Airport can get you just about anywhere, and the tickets are generally very cheap.
City has absolutely no culture outside of Deep Ellum
It's too hot to go outside 4 months/year
Horrible school system unless you live in Highland Park
Horrible music scene. No good bands come through Dallas
Very pretentious and a constant "keeping up with the Jones's" vibe.
You feel landlocked. It takes forever to get out of DFW, and the city is surrounded by the ugliest, most depressing suburbs I've ever seen.
Uncomfortably close to Oklahoma
Lot of Aggie fans
No beach worth a shit within 6 hours; closest mountains are 5 hours (Ozarks) -- although the Hill Country (4 hours) is fucking awesome
I moved to dallas last summer. Used an apt finder and with the special I’m paying about 1200/mo for a 750 sq ft 1 bedroom in the cityplace area.
I looked at aura but it was a little expensive for what I wanted to spend on a place (good location though, I’m close to it). I haven’t driven through the yet to be gentrified areas of Deep ellum, but if it’s anything like the knox-Henderson counterpart, it’s not scary or dangerous.
Pretty solid list, although I don’t think there’s too many Aggies here. I meet mostly Tech, Oklahoma and Ok st alumni.
I consider Uptown/Katy Trail area the ideal spot for someone in their 20s. It's rowdy, and there are tons of hot girls. Lot of douches make their pilgrimages down there on weekends, though. I'm 34 and can't remember the last time I went to Uptown (probably b/c I'm married).
Knox Henderson is more for people in their 30s IMO. The Knox side of 75 is basically where Highland Park converges with Uptown. The Henderson side is a bit more rowdy, but as you mentioned, an area that has been gentrified over recent years. One of my most-frequented bars, Capitol Pub, is down in that area.
Deep Ellum is the former red-light district of Dallas. There's a pretty a great song that has been covered by a lot of acts over the years (Grateful Dead included) that basically sums of Deep Ellum:
If you go down to deep ellum, put your money in your shoes
The women in deep ellum, they give you the deep ellum blues
Oh, sweet mama, your daddy's got them deep ellum blues
Once I had a girlfriend, she meant the world to me
She went down to deep ellum, now, she ain't what she used to be
Once I knew a preacher, preached the bible through and through
He went sown to deep ellum, now, his preaching days are through
When you go down to deep ellum to have a little fun
Have your ten dollars ready when the police man comes
When yo go down to deep ellum put your money in your pants
'Cause the women in deep ellum, they don't give a man a chance
Oh, sweet mama, your daddy's got them deep ellum blues
It started gentrifying before I got to Dallas, and now it's very diverse party scene. From clubs, to dive bars, to music venues, it's a lot of fun. Definitely a place you want to check out. I go down there a good bit, especially when I lived in Lakewood (nearby). Again, I personally wouldn't want to live there, though.
I would add to my cons list traffic/transportation. The city is incredibly sprawled out, the roads are horrible, and there is essentially no usable light-rail/subway (DART is garbage). Traffic is becoming horrific. I started working off the Tollway just north of LBJ back in 2014, right after buying a house in Lakewood. The commute was about 25-30 minutes. After a couple of years, it was at least 45 minutes in the morning and 50 min - 1:10 in the afternoon. That's an 11 mile commute eating up 10 hours/week. I sold my house in Lakewood back in September and moved up to the Preston/Forest area. I'm the youngest person in the neighborhood, and I'm nowhere near my friends/the fun party scenes, but my commute is only 10 minutes now. With a wife and kid on the way, I'll take the trade off.
Just depends on where you work. I work in uptown, and I find the city super compact (coming from Houston). I never need to leave the city, the furthest north I go is to Costco. Traffic does suck ass though, and I don’t think they’ll be able to expand 75 in the city the way it’s set up.
Oh hey, everyone look at devine.
Awfully early to be this mad lol
Yeah, it's not even in the same stratosphere as Houston. That place is a traffic nightmare.
I lived in Uptown when I first moved here, and I don't believe I ever ventured north of Mockingbird, other than to go to work at the Campbell Center (75/Northwest Hwy). If you told me back then that I would one day be living at Preston/Forest, I would have put a gun in my mouth right then and there.
Lol Houston. Who would even live there?
