Is this the same as the one in Plano, just south of 121?
We just drove past it, and wondered if it was any good.

Can't believe no one has mentioned III Forks yet. I also like Rick's Chophouse in McKinney for steaks, they've also got a cool little lounge area tucked away in back, makes for a nice place to drink.

I'm a seafood fan, so unfortunately my choices are somewhat limited around here, but I've always liked Pappadeaux's and in Plano, there is Sea Breeze Fish Market and Grill, always good.

For BBQ, there's a lot of choices, Hutchin's is always good, right now I'm a fan of 3 Stacks in Frisco. I still like Clark's after all these years, up in Tioga, but unfortunately it looks like it may be gone for good.

Fire destroys Clark

Admittedly, the food wasn't as good as it used to be in the 80's and early 90's with the original owner, but still very good BBQ. I hope they rebuild.
Definitely slim pickings in the seafood department...I love seafood also.

We get our fix usually at Pappadeaux. We have also tried Amberjax in Trinity Groves (excellent), Cafe Pacific (HP...so overpriced but excellent), and Rex's Seafood near Inwood (people rave about it but I found it just average). I often crave the simply prepared redfish at Cisco Grill (University Park).

My dad, son and I absolutely love oysters and we have tried a lot of places for that. The biggest and cleanest always seem to be at Shuck n Jive (Greenville) and Pappadeaux.

There's a few on this list I can't wait to try The 10 Best Seafood Restaurants in Dallas - TripAdvisor

Count me in with the people that do not get Babe's/Bubba's appeal. I always find the fried chicken a bit on the burnt/dry side. And fried chicken is one of my favorite dishes so I have had my share.

Coming from SF it's hard to compare seafood here, but Truluck's is quite good.

I moved up from Houston and miss great mid priced seafood places. Or maybe havent found them here yet. Houston has a plce called Babins and another called Willie G. They are better than Pappadeuxs or Pappas Seafood both which are good but not great. Babins was created by Landrys and built them next to Salt Grass in HOuston in a few locations. Once Landrys bought Salt Grass they didnt need Babins so stopped adding them.

What made both of the ones mentioned great is they had very unusual fish caught in a the deep gulf a two or three day fishing. The fish they had each day depends on what is caught. But Triggerfish and French Angel were my favorites which I have not seen here yet. The prices were about like Salt Grass and ambience same, Id call it casual. But awesome fresh fish. I have tried Lefts seafood here in Addison but only the shrimp which is great, gulf coast good.

I am not a big fish fan but miss the occassional fish meal. Shrimp is good here, Lefty's Pappadeaux and Sea Breeze in Plano Lakeside area have great shrimp. Large and firm and sweat tasting with great red sauce

TJ's (Preston & Royal) and Daddy Jack's (Lower Greenville) are great seafood restaurants. TJ's is also one of the best fish markets in town, food is more upscale/pricey. Daddy Jack's is your classic New England style fish house.

Just read about Daddy Jack's this weekend and it's next on my list. Used to live in Boston many many moons ago so I'm sure will bring back memories of NE seafood places. Will have to check out TJs menu. Thanks!

Two other babins fish are ling and golden file. Anyone know a place in Dallas with any if these on a periodic basis? I like my fish to taste like chicken so most if these are mild, white flakey fish. Thanks

I went there this December, it's one of the few seafood restaurants that was open on a Monday. It was cold and I was really craving clam chowder (which was good). It's really small, so it fills up fast, most people had reservations, we got there kind of early so we got a seat. It's good but I thought it was pricey. Their lobster special seemed to be popular, but I didn't have it. Valet was hard to spot, so self parked behind the restaurant.

I finally found a great fried fish place Whiskers Fish & Burgers on Singleton blvd, about 2 blocks down from Trinity Grove. Hands down the best fried fish in Dallas and very reasonably priced but it's not really a sit down restaurant, more so order and go, or call and pick up. I eat there at least once a week and each and every time my food is hot & fresh.
