Located in downtown Sanger, Babe's Chicken Dinner House
is agreat place to eat. Babe's main course menu offers only
two choices: Fried Chicken & Chicken fried steak. If you are the best
at what you do you don't need alot of items on the menu. Generous
portions and all-you-can eat sides will satisfy even the
biggest home cooked appetites. The sides are biscuits, salad
and the vegetable changes.Their corn is wonderful nothing like
it anywhere else. Closes thing to home cooking you can find
in my opionion. Generous portions and all-you-can eat sides
will satisfy even the biggest home cooked appetites. Babe's offers an atmosphere
akin to a family reunion picnic. If you arrive right at supper time,
be prepared to wait.
PROS: GREAT HOME COOKING
The County Feed and Pet Supply isn't just a regular feed store that has horse and cattle feed. They have an extensive line of domestic animal food. They carry all the top brands fo cat and dog food. They also carry a lot of treats for both cats and dogs. You can get all your cattle and horse feed there too and I have seen a lot of people in there picking it up but I go for the dog and cat food. The prices are good and they carry more brands than anywhere around. The staff is very nice and helpful- especially when you need something carried out for you!
PROS: Great selection of dog food
CONS: kinda hard to get to
Victorian Treasures Antiques and gifts is a cute store that has a lot of gift items (cards, figurines, etc). They also carry antiques and they actually have quite a few in the store. The antiques are priced a little high but the gifts are very reasonable and they have some very cute and unique things that make great presents. Even if you aren't in to buying anything - it is a great place to go wonder and look at all the antiques and gift ideas. The staff is warm and friendly and will help you with any question- especially on the antiques.
PROS: Nice unique gifts
CONS: Antiques could be better prices
Crickettes Flowers is the best place in Denton to get your flowers. They make wonderful arrangements and are so quick about getting them delivered. I have been so impressed as to how long the flowers live after they are delievered. I have gotten so many thank you and compliments on the flowers I have sent from Crickettes. They are also a Telaflorist so they carry all the Telaflorist bouquets. I know they have a web site but I have never used it- I am sure it is a great as the store and the over the phone service!
PROS: Great flowers
CONS: Some arrangements can be expensive
Family Resale is a good store to go to when looking for used clothes and some household items. They also have some purses and shoes in the accessories area. They don't have a huge selection of clothes that aren't really used. It is a good place to go look for Halloween costume items or for a play when you need certain older items. I have found a couple of things in there that were in good shape. The prices are very good for a resale shop and the store was clean.
PROS: Clean store and good prices
CONS: Not a huge selection
Cookie Bouquet in Denton is a great place to go if you are looking for a unique present to send to someone for a birthday, anniversary or "just because". They make cookies on sticks that they put into arrangement to look like flowers. They have many themes and different arrangements. They even have one for the University of North Texas that includes an eagle. I was impressed with the selection and it helped me out when I need a gift for a very hard to by for person. They even deliver.
PROS: Unique gift to give
North Texas Book & Supply is a great college bookstore that has more than just text books. They carry a wide array of regular reading books, magazines, etc. They also carry a huge amount of t-shirts, sweatshirts and college apparel for North Texas. The prices on text books are high (as they are everywhere) but they also sell them used and that is a better deal. The apparel and regular books are prices very reasonably. It is a great store to wonder around and look at all the UNT stuff they carry.
PROS: Best place to get UNT stuff!
CONS: Text books are very very expensive
If you are looking for a place to get old movies and records- this is the place. Movies N Records has such a wide selection of vinyl records and CDs. I found one that I have been looking for (even on e-bay) forever at Movies N Records. The prices are a little higher but they aren't a chain store and don't have the buying power that the big stores have. It is worth going to if you like a unique store with wide selection. The staff is very friendly and helpful when you need to find something.
PROS: Great selection
CONS: prices a little higher than at chain stores
The Prairie house is a great place to dine. They have old west decor starting with the big stuffed bear as you come into the lobby. They have a great menu chicken fried ribeye to prime rib dinners. My daughters favorite is something with a baked potatoe. When you get a baked potatoe they bring out bowls of bacon, cheese and sour cream. The employess are always friendly. Their prices have seemed to go up from when they were down the road in the smaller restaurant. Even the prices have gone up this place is worth the price, wait or drive. So try it out!
PROS: Potatoe toppings
Mrs Bairds Bakery on Mckinney St in Denton has its ups and downs. They seem to be a smaller store then most others I have shopped at. They also do not seem to carry as many items as they do at the others. They don't really seem to have a regular schedule of when items come in. Lots of times you go in and they have a sign saying they have not change for twenty dollar bills. This can be inconvient at times. I will go by occasionally to look but for the most part anymore I go else where.
CONS: Not well stocked
