The experience Can you believe it??!  Tonight is our last night of the Phipps Feeding Fiasco!  Our 365th restaurant in 365 days.  We’ve been looking forward to this date for quite some time.  We decided a few weeks ago that we would have this dinner at Stephan Pyles.  We know they have excellent food, excellent [...]

The experience We’re getting down to the nitty gritty, just a few short days and we’ll have eaten at 365 different restaurants over the last 365 days.  There are a couple of places that we’ve had recommended to us that we want to squeeze in, one of them being a Chinese Joint in Dallas.  We’ve [...]

The experience Today is extremely busy for us.  Started early with hula class followed by a birthday part y for Mina’s friend and then we needed to get home to nap before the circus tonight!  So this meant we needed to eat somewhere quick, close and easy!  Ogre’s suggestion: Taco Delite.  He has been trying [...]

Dinner at Sal’s

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Pizza, Plano

The experience Friday night.  I like to get pizza on Friday nights.  Don’t ask me why.  Even when we weren’t doing this everyday, I like to go out for pizza once a week.  Before we had Benji, we’d go to what was then Double Dave’s (now Chez Joey’s…but was Doughy Joey’s when Ogre reviewed it [...]

The experience Ogre wanted to try Carolina’s, the restaurant that has taken the place of Mario’s Chiquita on 75 over by Chuy’s.  Sounded like a great plan to me.  We all loaded up and headed over.  The kids were excited about it as we drove up to the restaurant until they realized we were NOT [...]

The experience The first day back from vacation is always so hectic!  Ogre and I had a meeting downtown mid afternoon, I had a patient to admit at the hospital, the kids needed to be picked up and Mina had Hula lessons -not to mention the unpacking, laundry and “pre cleaning” for the maid that [...]

The experience This afternoon and evening were busy (as usual).  My car needed new tires, so we dropped off my car in the afternnon, then I had to take Mina to hula class, which is all the way across town while Benji napped.  Our original plan was to meet somewhere like we usually do, but [...]

Great Patio at Obzeet

In: 4 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Patio, sandwiches

The experience It cooled off this weekend, and I wanted to find a nice patio where we could eat lunch.  As always, we had a laundry list of errands to run include going to Central Market, so I tried to think of a place near Central Market that would have a patio that was not one [...]

The experience Ogre and Dusty had a business meeting over in Addison, so we decided it would be easiest if we met out there for dinner when they were finished with their meeting.  Ogre told me he’d call before 6:30 to let me know what the deal was, and not surprisingly, he called at about [...]

The experience Today when Ogre asked me about dinner, I remembered that on Tuesday it’s Kids Eat Free.  It was Tuesday, so we set out to find the nearest Applebee’s.  After getting a little lost, we finally happened upon it.  We were seated right away and noticed a lot of tables with kids.

About Child's Plate

Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
