Lunch Category

The experience We did not leave Dallas til about 4:30PM and the kids (Benji) had not napped all day.  We had not even left Plano when Benji was out  and Mina was soon to follow.  I did not want to risk waking either of them up with any sort of stop, so we drove until [...]

The experience Ogre was finishing up lawn work (we have an acre) and as he was finishing up, I found out that I had an admission to see at the hospital.  We decided it would be the best plan to eat in Rowlett so I could head over to the hospital right after dinner and [...]

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 [...]

Good Stuff at The Fish Shack

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Plano, Seafood

The experience We decided to stay in Plano for dinner tonight and after some discussion, we remembered that we’d been wanting to try.  This spot has been home to many restaurants over the years, but was originally a Long John Silver’s.  It seems as though it’s back to it’s roots, as it is now the [...]

The experience Ogre told me that he was in the mood for soup tonight.  I suggested Mr. Shabu Shabu and he thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.  Mina was not with us as she was with Oma and Grandpoo.  So, it was just us and the Benj.  We’ve never been here before and [...]

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.

The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class.  Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]

Dim Sum at Maxim’s

In: 3 stars, Chinese, Dim Sum, Dinner, Lunch, Richardson

The experience We decided it would be fun to do Dim Sum today.  We were getting a somewhat late start, so we were worried about the crowds.  We decided on Maxim’s, which seems to be the other place to get Dim Sum around here (Kirin Court being the other, but I’ll admit that I like [...]

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!
