Anyone here every ventured into this little place in Garland, in the same strip of Babe's.
Its next door to a comic shop I frequent and what caught my eye were the hours of operation
"Thursday through Saturday - 4 to 9pm"
Odd I thought, then I saw that it was a Mennonite restaurant, a very small one at that - seating up 38 patrons.
Would the odd hours have something to do with the Mennonite religion or is that just up to the owners.
Anyways, upon checking out their menu online, I was rather amused at their "Whine List"
I reckon they dont serve alcohol due to religious constraints, but that lil touch of personality made me want to venture in.
Well that wasnt all that intrigued me, they serve up authentic Poutine.
Ive been searching far and wide around the metroplex to sample this Canadian delight, and here it is, right in my back yard. They had other entries in their menu which sound nom-worthy to me, like their perogies, holubschi and wareniki. The latter two I havent heard of before, so Id like to try them out as well.
Theyre located in off of Belt Line and I believe N. Garland, close to Babes.
So if anyone has any experience here, please do share.
But if not, prepare to hear something about it in the future, I plan on attending this week to get down on some poutine!

      I hear that, I hope my schedule this week allows me to go.
      I'll post up some pics when I make it out there.

      No, they do serve alcohol. You get a free glass of wine (maybe also beer?) with dinner ... I suspect it's from a box.

      I'm sure the hours don't have anything to do with religion, except the being closed on Sunday part.

      Their claim of being the best (and only) Mennonite restaurant in the area is, I suspect, correct. It was more a homecooking than a gourmet experience--as one would expect. Either go early, or prepare yourself for extremely leisurely service. Be sure your dining companions are interesting :D

        I've been there and I've had the Poutine! It's wonderful.
