JC's Burger house...as far as i know they have a location in McKinney and one in Plano. Great burgers made from fresh, raw ground meat that they form into a patty right in front of you....NOT FROZEN and excellent taste!!

Here is the address for Cappy's Cafe in Bonham:

109 W Sam Rayburn Dr
Bonham, TX 75418

I couldn't find any information on cafe's or restaraunts in Bells. I will ask my co-worker (lives in Bonham).

Sounds like your luck ran out with your food quest! Sorry about that. There is only one thing worse than going to a funeral...and that's going to a funeral hungry and leaving hungrier

Poor Richards in Plano (mostly a breakfast Place but they do serve lunch.)

I also hear a place in Plano called Tony's (Springcreek and Alma) is pretty good. Haven't tried it.

That place is good. Very greasy burgers but so good. Its somewhat scary for soem people though. Its in a bad naighborhood and you will get asked for money by the homeless people at the front door.

My vote for best burger is Twisted Root Burgers in Deep Ellum

I'm not sure how Goodluck's food taste now but I do know they were bought out around 5 years ago. There link baskets were incredible and the hamburgers were very good. I think they are owned by a Korean family now but I am not sure if they changed the food or not.

Yeah some asian people run the store. One of my favorite things about the place is a home made sign they put up on the window. It says "No dirty trick". I guess they have a lot of problems with the people trying to scam them for free food with old receipts. My first time goign there was probably 2 years ago. I work on Lamar so I am pretty close to them.

I hit Indian Palace off of Preston for Indian food. (not so much a hole in the wall..rather nice inside)

Sonny Bryan's on Inwood for BBQ of course. I thought Peggy Sue's was overrated.

Where would I get the best hamburgers? Fried seafood? Soul food? Are there any other Dallas "institutions" out there that I've missed?

Being from Ft Worth I don't get over too much.
This is not in Dallas, but in your own backyard. Try Massey's in Fort Worth for the best chicken fried steak.

For some of the best tacos in the area, try Fuel City in Dallas off Industrial Blvd. Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum, YUM!!!

Raymond's Barbecue on Garland Road near Jupiter is a long-time favorite of mine. Raymond sold out to a Chinese family a couple of years ago, but to their credit they have kept the menu and recipes exactly the same. They have just about the best beans you'll ever eat. Great selection of sides but I'll admit that their meat has never been as good as it should be. This evolved from the old Underwood's Barbecue from the '60s. Same location for almost 50 years.

Greasy Spoon - Jay's Breakfast & Burgers - Addison, TX

Breakfast - Any of the original Pancake House restaurants ... NOTHING like IHOP. Plano location off 75 is my fav.

Hometown Charm - Ballard Street Cafe & Grill - Wylie (Downtown Wide Awake Wylie), TX

Thai - Banana Leaf - Plano - Good chance your house manager would be a Heavy Cajun Accented Thai Gentlemen. Quite a trip to hear that Accent if for anything else.

Ali Baba Cafe - Central Parkway location - For the price, you can't beat the buffet of middle Eastern style food.
