The Dickey’s Barbecue Pit sign may be ubiquitous today as a spot for good ole’ Texas barbecue, but when Travis Dickey first opened his Dallas shop in 1941, the sign had to share space with advertisements to help pay rent. In the 70 years since then, the Dickeys have done well for themselves, with their initial store spawning a slew of franchises throughout the country. Though the barbecue at each outpost is no longer under the hand of one of Dickey’s descendants, each shop still smokes their own meats in-house to create the signature Texan flavor that infuses their briskets, pulled pork, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Meals can come in any size, from the a la carte sandwiches to platters that incorporate a chosen number of meats with a buttery roll, a pickle, two homestyle sides, and free ice cream. Whether serving up their dishes in the dining room or packing them up for take-away or catering, the staff ensures that each client gets a taste of Texas home cooking without the hassle rubbing every dish on a campfire crock-pot.
Some of the instructors at Lookaway Farm have worked with morgan horses for several decades. The equines, with their chocolate-hued necks arched proudly and their hooves beating quick drumrolls, respond to this extensive experience during lessons, trail rides, and competitions. All instruction is conducted in a one-on-one format and customized in accordance to the rider’s goals of achieving proper technique or making a novel about rollerblading cowpokes more realistic. With regular practice in the saddle, students of all ages can tap into the sport’s myriad benefits, including development of muscles, confidence, and coordination.
The grill-masters at Legends sling up signature hot dogs, burgers, and traditional American fare to athletics aficionados in a casual sports-bar atmosphere. The menu showcases variations on a ballpark standard, such as the lucky dog, a half-pound of black Angus beef ($6.99), and the all-beef kosher t-o big dawg ($2.49), which fetches french fries on command. Pile puppies high with additional toppings of sauerkraut, chili, cheese, or jalapenos (75 cents each), or forego cylindrical meats in favor of the rodeo burger, a juicy patty anointed with a sizzling crown of bacon, cheddar, and onion straws ($7.99). Baskets of wings arrive swirled in chipotle lime, spicy barbecue, or one of 13 other sauces zestier than a quick-tempered umpire ($7 for 10 wings).
Neatly nestled on the edge of Chippewa Lake, The Oaks Lakeside crafts casual dinner fare with its menu of seafood, pasta, desserts, and more, all within the confines of a charming cottage. Soak up picturesque sunsets between sups of shrimp bisque, which mingles sautéed jumbo shrimp in the gregarious waters of a creamed sherry shrimp stock ($13), or sink main-course molars into the chicken cordon bleu ($19) or the almond-crusted awnings of the baked tilapia ($18). Meat-seeking maws can find solace in the egg-battered arms of the veal piccatta ($19), and restless sweet teeth can stretch out nighttime noshing with a selection from the dessert menu. Dinner bells ring at 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 1 p.m. on Sundays. Reservations are recommended.
