More than four decades of family-style recipes guide the chefs at Freddie's Steak House as they light up taste buds with steaks and traditional Lebanese fare. Diners delve into the meal's first act with an order of signature stuffed mushrooms, filled with cream-cheese garlic stuffing and topped with cheese. Patrons can use steak knives to carve treasure maps into hand-cut portions of rib-eye steaks, served with a relish tray of hummus, salad, or tabouli, as well as a choice of two sides. Each table nestles up to a scenic view of Keystone Lake, providing visual fodder for midmeal contemplation. Boaters can dock their vessels nearby and come inside to dine or to recruit grizzled seadogs for an expedition into a bandit's lair.
Wood paneling and old school mementos line the walls of Bogey’s Hamburgers as guests dig into their classic combination of hamburgers and fries. The burger masters at Bogey’s lovingly top each single, double, or triple-patty burger with slices of cheese and couple the American staple with baskets of curly fries. For those trying to cut down on round foods, the patty melt fills out the menu with melted swiss cheese and grilled onions, and the taco salad transforms the small handheld Mexican treat into a fork-worthy meal.
Compadres Mexican Grill serves handmade authentic Mexican food and drinks in a warm and friendly environment. Once seated at your table, you'll be welcomed by handmade chips and escorted by three different varieties of salsa. The eatery's extensive dinner menu features fresh takes on Mexican favorites. The herculean eight-inch burrito especial comes stuffed with your choice of beans, beef or chicken along with all the fixings ($9.75) for an edible experience as grand and tubular as a rocket launch past the tasty outer stratosphere and straight into the void of deliciousness. The borracho tacos (steak, chicken, or shrimp) ($9.75) and fajitas de la casa (chicken or steak) ($10.79) are freshly grilled to order.
When owner Jim Loggin opened Chicory and Chives as a country comfort-food diner, he began with just a few Cajun items. Over time, the aromas of buttery country goodness and Cajun spices soaked into the clothes of passersby, igniting cravings for the two-headed fare each time they donned their favorite passing-by sweaters. Comfort items such as fresh-ground, handmade burgers ($4.99–$8.59) and fried or blackened catfish ($8.49–$8.79) are popular palate pleasers, but the Cajun dishes are the diner's objet d'art. Today's Groupon will fill both of your stomachs and keep your wallet full with Cajun specialties like the shrimp or crawfish etouffee ($8.49), a rich medley of fresh seafood swathed in a buttery Cajun gravy served over rice with cheesy bread, a side salad, and seasonal vegetable. Chicory and Chives also offers hearty gumbo, soups, salads, po' boys, and wraps.
Carrying on a 28-year tradition of simultaneous rubber burning and community serving, Chuy's Hot to Trot 5K strives to contribute $25,000 to Special Olympics Texas's training camps and competitions. All race participants will receive a free T-shirt, scores of high-fives, a raffle ticket for myriad certificate prizes, and the fuzzy warmth of providing needed assistance. The top three finishers in each age and calf-muscle-definition group will receive a trophy version of Chuy's ubiquitous fish, and first-place finishers earn themselves gift certificates for Chuy's, Dick's Sporting Goods, or RunTex. Parental pavement-punchers can drop off tots too small for the Kid K at the complimentary daycare from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Rex’s Chicken is known for its bite-sized, always-crispy, and ever-boneless fried-chicken chunks. A basket of the bitable bits ($6.99) comes served with a side (such as corn on the cob, fried okra, or coleslaw) and with the eatery's other notable nosh: frybread, a flat, deep-fried slab of delicious dough that's accompanied by honey. Or, let your chicken nap on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ($6.99), slip between a bun ($7.29), or jump into a hoagie drizzled with Rex's own sauce ($7.69). The menu has ample poultry possibilities. If you're a minimalist, just request 2 pounds of chicken ($21.99) in a bucket or in a pouch made from your T-shirt. Ask for the chicken jalapeño'd for a bit of an extra bang.
