This is the best Barnes in Nobles in Dallas by far. The staff at this bookstore is very, very friendly. The selection is great. The reading area could be a lot bigger but if you get there at the right time, you will not find it hard to find a place to read. Their coffee shop is terrific as well.
I have placed many book on hold and I have never had any problems what so ever.
PROS: Great location
I took classes this past semester at this university and I was very pleased with my instructors. They were both very good at the subject they were teaching and for the most part, very professional. I like the fact that it is not too far from Dallas and is just a couple of miles off of 75.
PROS: Easy access
CONS: None that I can think of
This pharmacy is very friendly and will work with you. My doctor called in a prescription for me and although I was not a in their system, they had my prescription ready withing minutes.
It is very clean and the staff is supe frienldy.
I love the Lakewood library because it is small and cozy. If you can't find what you are looking for the staff is more than willing to help you get it for you from other libraries. The staff is very friendly and courteous. Parking is great and the location is wonderful.
PROS: small and easy accessible
CONS: might not find all of what you are looking for
Are you interested in authentic spicy Mexican food that will leave you wanting lots of water? Well look no further than Mis Casuelaz on Main street. There are two Mis Casuelaz on Main street just a few blocks from each other but if you are feeling like a dare devil you might want to go the the original. This is a tiny place with a counter top for people to eat right in front of the grill where the women at hard at work cooking your food. There are a couple of tables inside and a few benches outside. This location does not take credit cards so try the other bigger location. All the food that I have tried at this restaurant is super spicy and hot. You might want to ask the waitress about how spicy the food is before you order it. The tortillas are hand made and the salsa is home made as well but very, very hot. The staff at the bigger restaurant is a lot friendlier than the staff at the original location.
PROS: Wonderful tasty and super hot food
CONS: Food is not super cheap and staff can be unfriendly
I have been attending mass at Saint Thomas Aquinas for most of this year and I really like this church because it is very well orginazed. I had been a member of the Cathedral of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas for 20 years but having to deal with the parking problem and never been able to find a seat, I finally decided to give another church a try.
Saint Thomas is a medium size church and parking is easily available. There are at least five masses on Sunday and the church is easily located off of Abrams near Mockingbird. The congregation is a mixed of many cultures and the staff has been very friendly and has answered any questions I've had through email. Saint Thomas also offer private Catholic school.
If you are looking for a new Catholic church or if you are interested in attending mass go to Saint Thomas and give it a try.
PROS: In Lakewood area, great staff, beautiful church and plenty of parking
CONS: Mass is only offered in English.
Gloria's in Oak Cliff is by far my favorite place to go for happy hour. Not only are the margaritas and mojitos $2 dollars during happy hour but the ambiance and service is always great. This location is smaller than the one on Greenville but it is also a lot more family oriented and parking is free.
You can?t go wrong with the pupusas, nachos, quesadillas, or the Bistec Encebollado (grilled stake with onions), delicious! To top everything else, you get chips served with delicious salsa and black beans. You might also want to try the Mexican drink Orchata, it is made out of rice and it is very sweet. You could almost substitute dessert with this drink.
PROS: $2 margaritas, mojitos and pupusas. Chips with salsa and black beans
CONS: There is nothing I can say that is negative about this Gloria's
I have been coming to Barbecs for more than 15 years and I still love them biscuits! Who would not love them when they are the most tasty "beer biscuits" in town. Service is good for the most part but if you go during rush hour, expect to wait in line.
Barbecs was just recently renovated but it still has the good old mom and pop feel to it. Coffee is really tasty and so are their migas. If you are looking for a good deal, then come to Barbecs during the weekdays for the early bird special. This special will get you lots of food for less than $4.
PROS: Beer bicuits, great coffee, early bird special, by White Rock Lake
CONS: long lines during rush hour
You will find El Jordan Cafe right in the middle of the Bishop Art's District in Oak Cliff. It is so worth the drive if you like authentic and tasty Mexican food.
This restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast is cheap and really tasty. I have tried the usual breakfast special (eggs, bacon, beans and tortillas) and have also had the typical Mexican dishes like Caldo de Rez (beef stew). You should try this, specially when is really chilly outside or if you have a hangover. The Mexican tacos and tortas are very tasty as well. If you want to try different salsas, you have to ask the waitress who also happens to be the owner, who is also the cashier for other flavor salsas. Because the owner is the cashier/waitress and busboy, service can be slow. Sometimes you might get chips with salsa and sometimes you might not but don't be afraid to ask for them, the staff is very friendly.
PROS: Tasty and cheap food, friendly staff
CONS: Slow service at times, might not get chips and salsa all the time.
Gold Rush is a tiny Cafe in Lakewood. There are less than 20 tables available so expect a wait during rush hour. The food is really cheap but lacks some taste and service at times is very slow. You could have yourself a good size breakfast with really taste coffee for less than $4 and to me that's a deal!
What I find very cool about Gold Rush Cafe is the menu itself. It is shaped like an old vinyl record and the cover has the owner's face who from what I understand, was in a band at some point and is very well known among the local artist. You will see a lot of musicians hanging out having breakfast. You might also enjoy the funky art hanging on the walls.
PROS: Cheap food, laid back atmosphere and great location
CONS: Slow service, some items in the menu lack taste.
