Ye Ole Butcher Shop's daily menu has boasted a lineup of delectable burgers and down-home barbecue eats since 1974. Kick off comestible expeditions with a buffalo burger, in which cheese, tomatoes, onion, and pickle form a leaning tower of flavor atop a freshly ground buffalo patty ($5.99), or gobble down a turkey burger for a heart-healthy meal or a Thanksgiving warm-up ($5.99). A plate loaded with an offering of barbecue chicken, ribs, links, or sausages and two sides of ranch beans, potato salad, coleslaw, or macaroni salad helps pacify growling belly beasts ($8.99). The weekday specials offer anything from wild hog and 12-point-buck burgers ($5.99) to rib eyes and fries ($8.99), great for carnivorous appetites and meat-powered robots.
Heaping portions of classic Italian favorites slake appetites at Paesano's. Crispy pizzas topped with a choice of toppings are served along with steamy bowls of pasta and cocoa-dusted tiramisu. Seafood, veal, and juicy cuts of steak make entree decisions difficult, and a full bar and a wine list complement dishes. The staff shares three decades of experience, which they call upon to expertly dispatch a menu of onsite or catered meals.
Instead of trays, waiters at Brazilian Cowboy Steakhouse & Grill carry swords that skewer such offerings as top sirloin, garlic picanha, grilled pineapple, and bacon-wrapped chicken, chauffeuring the slabs directly to tables where diners can indicate their preferred cuts. As the mesquite-grilled meats circulate throughout the room, customers can load the remaining space on their plates with the cheese bread, beans and rice, fried bananas, and salads that fill the restaurant’s full buffet. An easy-listening band headlines Brazilian Cowboy's stage each Friday and Saturday, and the concert’s addition of music to the meaty masquerade creates an atmosphere reminiscent of that at a butcher-school prom.
Led by pillar of the Plano community Fortino Trujillo, the quick-handed team at Tino's Too simmers and sizzles a menu of hand-rolled enchiladas, all-day weekend breakfast, and menudo and caldo every day. The Tino's Special ($10.25) leaves no cornerstone of quick Mexican cuisine unturned with a beef enchilada, deluxe taco, tamale, and a host of fixings, whereas the chimichanga's deep-fried flour tortilla bursts with beef or chicken topped with sour cream and veggies ($8.10). Tender chicken works together with onions and peppers to provide a protective layer between eager tongues and the sizzling skillet that hosts the fajitas ($12.25).
