Slim Chicken Franchise Spreading Across Texas

The Dallas area is in for a special treat as one of the best chicken sandwich food chains is opening up more locations. Many citizens of Dallas have been complaining that there is only one Slim Chickens open. That location is in Fort Worth.

The Arkansas-based food chain has been well known for its fresh chicken products. People of all ages love them. Some travel from out-of-state to try the chicken.

This year, the food chain is making up for all the time without more Slim Chickens open by rolling out nearly a dozen more locations in Texas in the near future. There will be at least six open this year and two more early next year. Now customers won’t have to drive nearly as far to get some of that good chicken.

The planned growth is about to pass many other regions around the United States. Slim Chickens is famous for its chicken tenders, chicken sandwich, salads, and the very popular chicken and waffles. Chicken and waffles has seemed to grab lots of attention around the United States. Many states have several chains that serve the famous chicken and waffles dish. Americans love the combination.

The environment that the Slim Chickens are running on is a southern feeling, soothing blues feel, and fresh chicken and sauce to keep the customers happy and wanting more. It is hard to find fresh chicken like the ones Slim Chicken provides.

All ingredients are fresh and made to order. Customers can choose from healthier salads, fried chicken, or grilled chicken. The lettuce used on the sandwich is fresh and of great quality. The buns are new and not moldy or hard. Chewy, warm bread makes the best combination with warm chicken.

The franchise should continue to grow year after year opening up more locations in Texas and possibly more around other parts of the United States. The southern states would love this establishment. As of right now cities such as Plano, Frisco, Irving, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Hurst are all places that are guaranteed to host a Slim Chicken. Other surrounding cities should see an establishment open up soon.

Annual DFW Restaurant Week hits August 15-21 for Good Eats

If you live in the Dallas-Ft.Worth area, it would be wise to start your diet now because DWF Restaurant Week is right around the corner. From August 15-21, the 19th Annual Restaurant Week offers discounts to 125 different restaurants in the area as a North Texas Charity Event.

How this event works is that the selected eateries prepare a three-course prix fixe menu for a set price of either $35 or $45 for dinner and many of the venues will also include two courses for lunch. Then 20 percent of the cost of the meal is donated to benefit families and children with the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope, which is an organization that provides counseling and education for children under 18.

A new event starting this year is a two-day, kick-off with the DFW Restaurant Week Food and Wine Festival. There is only one location, which is in Downtown Dallas at the Main Street Gardens from 5-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. During these two days, top restaurants will display their culinary expertise, which includes domestic and international wines and new creative cocktails in the menu to set your dinner off the chart.

Here are a few tips so that you enjoy Restaurant Week to the fullest.

1. Make a reservation to ensure your table. These 125 restaurants will also be serving other customers, so remember to ask for the Restaurant Week pre fixe meal.
2. Be sure of the dates. Many of the restaurants will begin a few days earlier and then remain with the specials until September 4. The list of restaurants will identify the pre and post dates.
3. Get a little extra by shopping Central Market stores and receiving a voucher for a fourth course!

DFW is going to be another fabulous week of delicious wining and dining and it’s all for a great cause. Get hungry, and come out several times to your favorite eateries while the cost is reasonable.

Dinner and Baseball

We’ve all heard the term “starving artist” before, whether referring to a struggling musician, actor, or actual artist. What about those striving for a career in sports? A trip for lunch or dinner at Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant may open your eyes to the financial plight of young athletes.

The restaurant in Fort Worth currently has three waiters on staff that are also players on independent baseball teams. Players in the minor leagues don’t earn nearly what the top guys in Major League Baseball make. So, in the off season when there is no practice and no games, these baseball players are busy taking orders and serving orders to keep up with their bills.

Owner Joe T. Lancarte says that all three work really hard and that he and his family do what they can to help them.

Wes Aslup has played for minor league affiliates of the Atlanta Braves and the Seattle Mariners. Injuries sidelined him for a bit, and then he spent some time with the Fort Worth Cats. He has moved on to another minor league team now located in Pennsylvania.

Brandon Tierney has played on the Frotneir Greays for the last three years. Originally from Fort Worth, he will be playing for the Kansas City T-Bones this year.

Roman Gomez has both pitched and played infield for Fort Worth and Brownsville, bt he is getting set to head to play in California this season.

All three dream of making it in the big leagues, and continue to work hard to make ends meet. So next time you stop in Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant, you may just be getting your dinner from a future MLB star.
