Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck – Dallas, TX

Working long hours on show site can be very exhausting, so having a good restaurant or two in your hotel, comes in very handy. Thankfully the Hyatt Regency Dallas had several dining options, so one night my co-workers and I decided to check out Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck. I’d seen lines at the hostess desk for the restaurant, so I hopped on my trusty Open Table app and made a quick reservation for three. Thirty minutes later, we walked up to the hostess desk and were greeted by the most friendly and knowledgeable host. He gave us a little history on the restaurant and the city of Dallas, then ushered us to the elevator. Five Sixty sits 560 feet atop the Reunion Tower and offers a 360-degree view of the Dallas skyline. So if you’re afraid of heights, you might want to skip this restaurant. But if you love a great view, then you will…

Ellen’s Southern Kitchen – Dallas, TX

Its been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, breakfast happens to be the most skipped meal of the day for me, except for when I’m traveling. Whenever I travel, I like to find at least one good breakfast spot to try out. While in Dallas, Ellen’s was the chosen spot. Ellen’s Southern Kitchen came highly recommended by my friend Tiara who always eats there when she’s in town for a Cowboys game. Early Saturday morning, I met my boss and teammate at Ellen’s for breakfast. Word on the street is that it’s best to get there before 9 a.m. on the weekends. Anytime after 9, you’ll end up having to wait for a table. We arrive at 8 a.m., walked right in and were promptly seated. I started with a caramel macchiato, extra caramel. It was the perfect amount of caramel and caffeine to…

Sissy’s Southern Kitchen – Dallas, TX

A couple of months ago I was doing some research for the blog and came across Sissy’s Southern Kitchen. I was so excited by the menu choices, I immediately sent it to my co-worker/friend Lisa. We both decided that Sissy’s was a must visit on our trip Dallas. Once in Dallas, we decided to check out Sissy’s Southern Kitchen, Tuesday night. Our driver told us that we had made a great choice with Sissy’s and would enjoy our food. We walk in and the hostess informed us that there would be at least 1 – 1.5-hour wait for a party of 3. I was a little disappointed in the wait time, but looked around and saw a good number of tables filled. So we grabbed seats at the bar and ordered drinks while we wait for our table. I ordered a jalapeño margarita and fried green tomatoes minus the shrimp remoulade. I wasn’t…

5 Dallas Restaurants You Shouldn’t Miss

I love food and love trying new restaurants especially when I am traveling. Prior to my business trip to Dallas, Texas, I had already researched a few restaurants in the area. Then I recruited a couple of co-workers and made a plan to hit these spots while we were in the city. And if I do say so myself, I picked a pretty good list of restaurants. The food was so amazing , that I wanted to share with you. So here is my list of the 5 Dallas You Restaurants Shouldn’t Miss. 1. RJ’s Mexican Cuisine – Historic West End The first thing you need to know about RJ’s Mexican Cuisine is that Happy Hour runs Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Yes, you read that right. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Want to start the party early? You definitely can do so at RJ’s with their $5 margaritas…

RJ Mexican Cuisine – Dallas

My first day in Dallas, my co-worker/friend decided to go off exploring, so I was on my own. Instead of asking the concierge for a suggestion, I went on Yelp to see who had the best happy hour specials. I looked at several restaurants within walking distance from my hotel and pictures (I’m all about pictures of the place and the food), I decided to take a short walk to RJ’s Mexican Cuisine. The first thing you need to know about RJ’s Mexican Cuisine is that Happy Hour runs Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Yes, you read that right. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. So if you want to start the party early, you definitely can do so at RJ’s with their $5 margaritas. And please don’t think that just because the margaritas are $5, they must be weak. NOT true at all. My first drink was…
