Bubba’s Cooks Country: Your New Neighborhood Diner

January 20, 2015 1:16 pm

Bubba’s Cooks Country is arguably one of Dallas's favorite destinations for Southern comfort food. This casual restaurant opened in 1981 when owners Bubba and Mary Beth Vinyard converted an old Texaco gas station into the Art Deco-style diner that it is today. The neon sign outside lights the way to Bubba’s, and the inside features red leather chairs, steel tables, and a classic black and white checkered floor.

Breakfast consists of crispy bacon, eggs, and thick-cut Texas toast, as well as endless refills on fresh coffee. For lunch and dinner, Bubba’s serves Southern fare favorites like chicken fried steak and all of the fixings. Owner Mary Beth’s most famous recipes are her fluffy yeast rolls and her sweet peach cobbler for dessert, and those recipes haven’t changed a lick in more than 30 years.

Bubba’s is open 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Sushi Robata: Learn About Japanese Food Culture at This Popular Izakaya

January 13, 2015 2:49 pm

In Japan, an “izakaya” is a casual bar and restaurant found in an upscale, cosmopolitan area where businessmen and women go to unwind after a day at the office. Dallas’s Sushi Robata is modeled after these popular Japanese eateries, and its stylish decor and relaxed atmosphere make it feel incredibly authentic.

The menu’s most popular items include the sushi rolls, appetizers, and the traditional Japanese desserts. Adventurous diners start their meals with items like beef tongue skewers or chicken heart, which are both served with a helping of teriyaki sauce. Dinner entrees consist of a variety of grilled meats, fried dishes, and noodle bowls, and an entire sushi menu is available either in the dining room or at the sushi bar. Sushi Robata also prides itself on its impressive sake list, which includes a sampler for inexperienced sake drinkers.

Sushi Robata gets very crowded during peak hours, so be sure to make a reservation to avoid the crowds.
