Much like its Lower Greenville forebear, Daddy Jack’s lures customers with the aroma of fresh lobster, clams, and a perfectly grilled steak. Fresh seafood that includes blackened shrimp and jumbo sea scallops and lobster tails satiates East Coast cravings at both dinner and lunch. Pasta dishes entangle mussels, lobster, and clams in housemade sauces, while completely vegetarian dishes forego the ocean's bounty in favor of mushrooms, tomatoes, and balloon animals. Wines from Chile to New Zealand add an exotic foreign accent to any dish.
Veteran chefs prepare Stir Crazy Fresh Asian Grill's Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes on sizzling woks right in the dining room. While diners-to-be ponder the menu of more than 50 traditional and innovative Asian creations, they'll witness knives quartering veggies and flames lapping at the edges of the wok as the sights, smells, and sounds of the kitchen come alive around them. Should taste buds riot at the sight of all this mouthwatering action, diners can satisfy them with an appetizer such as the ahi tuna and avocado poke, a spicy stack of fresh fish and cool veggies ($9). The entree portion of sweet-and-sour chicken features tender pieces of crispy chicken tossed with broccoli, red and green peppers, onions, carrots, and pineapple in a sweet and tangy sauce ($13). Or manage your intake with the Crazy Features menu, which offers smaller-in-portion but towering-in-flavor classics such as mongolian beef or sesame chicken, served with a crispy veggie spring roll (all $9.88).
They call it the 30-minute challenge. The test: devour a 2-pound Angus burger, a side of fries and onion rings, and a creamy milkshake, all before the half-hour mark. Customers who succeed get a shirt and the meal for free, and those who fail get to pay the bill before fully realizing they should have cheated or stuck to the normal menu. After all, with more than 20 burgers and sandwiches, Burger Shack's regular rotation of fare may just be more satisfying than the thrill of victory.
From bayou burgers topped with grilled louisiana sausage and fried onions to classic BLT sandwiches stacked atop thick-cut texas toast, the kitchen team churns out a selection of hearty handhelds fit for casual nights out or celebratory sports-team gatherings. Customers in the mood for breakfast are in luck; Burger Shack features items such as french toast, chicken and waffles, and egg burritos until noon most days and all day long on Sundays.
In 2004, Aleda and Steve Barry closed their famed Pizza Pub in favor of a fresh start in Southlake, Texas––but their reputation preceded them. Walking the neighborhood, people would recognize the duo and ask them when they planned to bring back their tasty menu. In 2010 it finally happened. The newly christened Aleda's Pizza is BYOB and resurrects the family's more than 20 specialty pizzas––such favorites as the spinach alfredo with locally grown veggies and the popular loaded baked potato with bacon and creamy ranch. These decadent pies snagged Aleda's Pizza the title of Best Pizza in the Southlake Times Reader's Choice Awards for 2011 and 2012. Amply stuffed sandwiches and calzones are also available, as well as healthy pizza alternatives such as whole-wheat crust and low-fat turkey pepperoni.

Dine-in guests are free to fill their bowls with their favorite soups and chilis, build their own salads from a plethora of crispy greens and tangy dressings, and see how much soft-serve ice cream they can pile atop a single cone. Patrons can also make a visit to the taco bar or flatbread pizza zone, and gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options are available.
