Liberty Chicken To Open Near Alamo Draft House in Richardson

Tony Street owns YO Ranch, and also claims the chef title. There he is cranking out hundreds of covers each night, many who are tourists in search of more Texas-style cuisine with true atmosphere. The building is loaded with memorabilia from the YO Ranch in the Texas Hill Country, including photos of the family to an actual windmill snagged from the sprawling ranch. Most would be content to own and operate a successful operation like YO, but Tony is from the Street family where gravy courses through each of the members veins. Enter Liberty Chicken, the latest on the drawing board from the Street family. This new concept will be operated by Tony, his uncle and restaurant veteran Gene Street, and Mariel Street who operates Liberty Burger.    Continue reading

Press release of the day tells us about Bon Chon Chicken which just penned a 4,500-square-foot lease at the northeast corner of Greenville Avenue and Lovers Lane in Dallas.

It later spread to California, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Virginia.

When a fast food chain opens up we generally do not give notice, or care for that matter. But there is a new Pollo Regio in Dallas, with plenty more on their way, and they deserve at the very least a golf clap. The restaurant is quick, tasty and for many – nearby.

Regio started its restaurant out of something similar to a food truck in Austin, selling a delicious pollo asado that is marinated then grilled for a pretty exquisite flavor. The basics of charro beans, rice and grilled onions gives this Regio a simplistic menu that is hard to beat. The chicken is served with a pack of corn tortillas which makes each meal a feast.   Continue reading

El Pollito Loco Makes Damned Good Yard Bird

By Steven Doyle

El Pollito Loco opened their doors this week at their 3068 Forest Lane location which is located across the street from Cinemark 13 Theater. At first glance the new restaurant had the appearance of the national chain El Pollo Loco which sells charred pollo asada family-style and has several locations in the Dallas area. There is a slight difference however.        Continue reading

Happy Hour At Sissy’s Is Southern Fried Fun

by Steven Doyle

Happy hour yesterday was all about Sissy’s Southern Kitchen and Bar as the staff there rolled out their new cocktail menu. Big hits for the night included the Tea Thyme  which is made up of Belvedere Lemon Tea Vodka, Thyme, Lemon Tea Vodka, Lemon and Honey, and the Colonel Sanders which is a healthy dose of Maker’s 46, Benedictine and Orange Bitters.

Tea Thyme is a sweeter concoction, but still a heady cocktail that creeps up on the unsuspecting soul. The Colonel Sanders is plucking good and stops you in your tracks with a smooth finish. The colonel himself would order at least three.           Continue reading
