However the Oak Lawn location in Dallas is bustling along at break-neck speeds, and the mere mention of the restaurant-bar made us lose control recently and we had to pay our respects.

The chicken fried steak has always been a mainstay at Snookies, and we heard legend of the chicken wings, so that is what we ordered.   Continue reading
