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 [...]

The experience You may have noticed on my two previous posts, that I’ve been suggesting Steak ‘n Shake for days now.  I’ve been craving a Root Beer Float (pregnancy perk!) and every time I do, Ogre responds, “yeah, well….” and then we go somewhere else.  I recommended it again today and lo and behold, we [...]

The experience Yesterday, we asked Mina where she wanted to eat before her Kindergarten graduation.  This is where I made a parenting error.  I did not give her choices, I left it open-ended.  Her reply?  “Silver Fox Steakhouse.”  Wha??  Ogre and I tried to redirect to cheaper other restaurants.  No go.  Silver Fox Steakhouse.  Well, [...]

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 Today we went to Parent-Teacher Conference at Mina’s school and found that Mina did very well excelling in all of her subjects.  We though we would treat her to pizza, which we know is a favorite of hers.  I called my dad’s house to see if Benji was awake and I assumed that [...]

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 Last night’s storm made for a later morning for me this morning and, thus, later getting home from rounding.  I suggested we get a quick bite for lunch somewhere and Ogre did not want to waste a meal out so he turned it into our childsplate adventure for the day.  We decided on [...]

The experience Today we were against wrought with the decision of what to eat for dinner tonight.  Nothing interesting came to mind and Ogre heard a Macaroni Grill commercial on the radio TWICE in arow and he must’ve taken it as a sign that we should here tonight.  I wondered if we had already eaten [...]

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 [...]

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!
