Making Dallas Even Better

  • Erin Ahlfinger

    I went to see ICE at the Gaylord Texan last weekend. While we were there we stopped for dinner at The Riverwalk Cantina. Worst Tex-Mex I’ve ever had. Taco Cabana does better. In fact, that might have been the worst meal I’ve had out, and I’ve had a few of those.

    The chips and salsa were tolerable, though not fresh. I asked the waitress for a recommendation and she literally refused to answer. After being pressed, she went with the (ballpark style heap-of-chips with cheese sauce) nachos. That should have been my first clue.

    I went with the pork carnitas. The pork itself was tender and would have been ok if it hadn’t been soaked in a verde sauce that was too salty to be safely consumed by the hypertensive and buried under a sponge-like nugget of rubberized cheese substitute. It would literally have bounced if I’d dropped it. Someone other than our waitress delivered our food, and we didn’t see a soul again until check time.

    The “sangria” was some sort of boxed red wine with club soda in it.

    I expected better from the resort by the airport bearing the name of the state that invented Tex-Mex. How many people leave thinking this is the standard?

    Good food at reasonable prices is not hard to accomplish. But one does have to actually care to do it. Shame on them that they can’t even do that. Now go out and find and awesome Tex Mex place and tell us all about it!

    Dinner Thursday night at LUCK in Trinity Grove development. WOW oh WOW so glad we crossed the bridge for this dinner. Not crowded at all, and our waitress (wish I remembered her name) was spot on in her recommendations regarding beer and wine selections. I think anything you order here will be good, so just order what sounds good to you at that moment. The sandwiches were big enough to share for us. No dessert as we were stuffed – but happy. Can’t wait to go back to Trinity Groves to try another venue – although it may be tough to skip this one.
