Just Liking Logan’s Roadhouse

In: 3 stars, Rockwall, Steakhouse

The Experience Logan’s Roadhouse opened a new location in Rockwall earlier this month. We had been to the location in Sherman with my inlaws and had a nice time, so we were eager to try the Rockwall location. We first went for lunch on Sunday, but the busy church crowd made us shy away. So, [...]

The experience I got home and Ogre apparently had decided on dinner already with the help of his iPhone.  We would be going to Houston’s.  Fine by me, I love Houston’s!  It is a little pricey though, but whatever, I’d been wanting to go there for childsplate anyway.  We drove out to the one near Addison [...]

The experience We decided to go to Fogo de Chao for Father’s Day with Ogre and his dad.  (We went out to lunch with my dad).  We arrived to find Oma and Grandpoo already waiting on us as we were about 10 minutes late to arrive.  We were seated right away after that.  We discussed [...]

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 After running a few errands and ending up in Fairview, we decided we’d eat in Allen for dinner.  We’ve always wonder about the bright pink restaurant that is set a little ways back in the Village shopping center and decided we’d try Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse.  The kids mentioned that they were “starving,” [...]

The experience Today, the Ogre wanted meat for dinner.  Not just any old meat, steak.  Thanks, my wonderful husband who knows that I gag at the thought of steak.  HOWEVER, I can’t let our lives stop because of my crazy nausea and reflux. So, I became the martyr for the evening and agreed to steak tonight.  We [...]

After the wedding, we all had dinner at the Garden Grill.  We had the whole place to ourselves, which was nice.  It was fixed menu.  Ceasar Salad with Chicken – this was the most mild Caesar dressing I’ve ever had and was fine to eat, not great, but edible.  I did not enjoy the chicken [...]

The experience Friday night.  Team Phipps likes the casual dinner on Fridays.  We decided on pizza.  We decided to head north as there were a couple of pizza joints we recalled right off 75.  So we drove to Joe’s first.  We looked over and there wasn’t even a sign anymore.  Closed.  No prob, I said, [...]

The experience As I was lying in bed nauseated, better than previous, but still nauseated, I decided it would be fun for us to eat at Truluck’s.  After all, it is St. Patrick’s Day!  When I told Ogre my great suggestion, his first comment was, “Did you make reservations?”  Hmm, why would I need reservations?  [...]

Family Dining at The Keg

In: 4 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Plano, Steakhouse

The experience My mission for the day was to get some badly needed make up.  I’ve been out all week and everyone has been commenting on how tired I look.  No, I’m just unable to camoflauge the huge dark circles under my eyes, but thanks for caring.  Because I tend to be difficult, I have [...]

About Child's Plate 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!
