Lunch at The Original

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Fort Worth, Lunch, Mexican

The experience I had the afternoon off today and we’ve been wanting to take the kids to Fort Worth.  One of our favorite places to go is the Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Arboretum.  We were actually up and going early enough to head out there.  Of course, a trip to Fort Worth typically [...]

The experience Grandpoo and Oma invited us to the Mesquite Rodeo tonight complete with dinner before at Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse…in the arena!  Grandpoo likes to get to places EARLY, which means that for the 6:30 dinner, we had to leave at 5:15, not too bad of an idea considering we would be driving at rush [...]

The experience  Benji awoke and seemed to be in very good spirits after his evening of fever and vomiting.  We decided we’d trek out for lunch and after some initial indecision, Ogre made the command decision to try Boston Market (which Mina used to think was Steak and Shake because they both have the black [...]

The experience When I called Ogre at 4:30 to tell him I picked up Mina and was headed to my mom’s, he informed me that he had a 7 o’clock meeting in Irving.  Nice heads up.  I asked him if he wanted to eat dinner before and he was a little suspect with his answer.  [...]

The experience Today I had a day off with no commitments, appointments or anything else that I had to do, so I thought we should go out to breakfast.  Unfortunately, pickings are getting VERY slim for breakfast choices that we haven’t eaten at already this year!  The only restaurant that I could think of that [...]

The experience Ogre and I decided to go out to lunch with Benji today.  My parents were unavailable to babysit him today and I returned from rounding in time to grab lunch with the boys. I can’t go too far, and the pickings are getting slim in the Plano area, but we recalled that we [...]

The experience I’m writing this over a week after actually going there, so my recollection of the experience is not going to go so well.  I know that Ogre and Mina love this place and in the past, I’ve been a little bit “iffy” about reviewing it for childsplate.  Afterall, it’s Hooters.  That just doesn’t [...]

The experience Today we headed out for lunch and I gave Ogre three options, he headed to Jason’s Deli, which was actually the last restaurant of choice, but would still do.  We walked in and, once again, were lucky to beat the rush and ordered straight away.  Benji was happy to stand with us as [...]

The experience Today was Benji’s birthday and I had to take Mina shopping so she could buy him a gift.  I also had to catch up on a good bit of work so it was already early afternoon and I still had to squeeze in lunch for the blog.  I went to grab Mina from [...]

The experience Well, Mina was accepted to the private school we applied for so we thought we’d reward her endurance of the testing and interviewing (sheesh!) with a special day.  We’d be going to a movie and then eating at the restaurant of her choice.  Of course she’s not going to choose a restaurant we [...]

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!
