We strongly urge “You People” to check out the pizza pub that calls Deep Ellum home, Stonedeck Pizza Pub. We thoroughly enjoyed the laid back, casual, yet hip atmosphere and vibe that oozes from the pub’s interior. We know what you’re thinking, “Yeah, that’s cool and all, but how’s the pizza?!” We’re so Glad you Asked! The pizza is delicious and the ingredients look, smell, and taste super fresh. These pies are definitely hand made and delivered to patrons straight from the oven. Not only is the pizza exceptional the drinks are impressive as well. Stonedeck specializes in craft distilled moonshine and American Craft Beer. The pub stocks over 125 exclusively American craft beers from across the country. The beer selection is pretty cool because it is focused on local breweries from various states around the country, which provides for a uniquely refreshing collection. We loved the pizza and enjoyed the large local selection of craft beers, but we’ll definitely be back to check out more of Stonedeck’s wide variety of moonshine. The moonshine is potent but very tasty. There are not many spots where you can hang out, eat pizza, and sip moonshine, if any. The waiters and waitresses are great. They are very welcoming, accommodating, and helpful. The pub has a good amount of seating, hip decor, a buzzing patio, great drinks, and oh yea, they DELIVER!
We plan to visit Stonedeck regularly in the future because of it’s many layers of enjoyment and it’s just plain ol’ good! “You People” take a trip to Stonedeck and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Dick’s located in Cedar Hill is your classic down home diner with a modern feel. Dick’s Uptown Cafe is a local favorite. Just about all of your classic breakfast/brunch dishes can be found on the menu here, from pancakes to hash-browns, eggs, and bacon with a few unique surprises mixed in as well. If you don’t make it for brunch the lunch menu is solid as well. Dick’s does not re-invent the wheel, but it does classic diner-type selections well. You really can’t go wrong at Dick’s. However, as you will notice, Brendan was not available for this episode of our Live Review so we would like to introduce to ‘You People’ our special guest, who did not share our same, shall we say, “Enthusiasm”. Check out out the Live Review Below.
For starters, we at YPR are rather serious when it comes to our Tex-Mex. We cant help it, we’re from Texas! So lets get to it, walking into La Acapulquena it felt very homey as if we were invited over to a friend’s house to watch Sunday Football. As we were seated we were brought out warm homemade chips along with two delicious authentic cups of salsa. Each salsa had its own unique taste and was accompanied with a cup of the house queso which was also pretty tasty. If we don’t know anything else, we know a good enchilada and we also know that the beans and the rice are the enchiladas support system. With that being said on a scale of 1-10 we would give the chicken enchiladas a solid 7 ½. We were also able to sample the beef taco and it wasn’t bad, but we could have probably done without it.The rice and beans were good, but nothing special. We did not have drinks during this visit, we know right, how is that possible. But we’ve heard that the Margaritas are on point. We would probably go again if we were in the area, especially to try the margaritas. The bottom line is LAMR is good, but nothing to write home to mother about.”You People” let us know what you think about La Acapulquena Mexican Restaurant in our comments section once you get a chance to check it out.
