        seems weird to pay $9 for something i could make at home with little to no effort..

          really? You must not eat out ever then...shame.

            not very often anyway. prefer reasonably priced and healthy. can't really get that at many restaurants.

    2. Just go to the Legacy/Tollway Center and you've got several very good options - Jaspers mentioned above, Bob's - steak, Nicola's - Italian, Naan - Sushi, Mi Cocina & Taco Diner - TX Mex.

      1. Bavarian Grill is fun but more of a family type place. There's a little hole in the wall cajun place called The Big Easy that has good crawfish etouffee. Covino's is popular.

        1. Don't say "ouch." There are plenty of good eats in Plano.

          For really excellent Thai (IMO the best in the Dallas area), there's Jasmine Thai at the southeast corner of Custer & Spring Creek. There was a thread discussing this place a little while ago on this board:

          For excellent chicken fried steak and BBQ chicken, try Kelly's Eastside in downtown Plano (K & 15th, I believe). Also a great place to watch a game, has that neighborhood eatery feel.

          Good Greek can be found at Zorba's at the northwest corner of W. Plano Pkwy & Preston, it's also BYOB with a wine store in the same shopping center.

          The Shops at Legacy (Legacy at Dallas North Tollway) provide some semi-upscale selections such as Nicola's & Naan mentioned above.

          Oh and if you are craving authentic Chinese, Plano is home to one of the First Chinese BBQ locations at Coit & Parker.

          And for upscale Vietnamese (much more than pho & banh mi), there's Zander's House off of Central Expy near Parker. Kirk reviewed this place a while ago and here's the thread:

          Plano is something like 25% Asian by population, hence some of the recs above. So don't fret, Plano has a bit more food choices than your typical suburb.

          1. Thanks all. Glad to hear my concerns for good food are unnecessary.
