Say hello to my new favorite restaurant in Dallas. This is quite fitting, seeing how I was a HUGE fan of THE Lisa Garza when she was on Food Network Star. Prepare yourself for a picture overload, because I could not get enough of Sissy’s.
Where to even begin? Lisa Garza in a presh bicycle dress, waiters in bow ties, the gorgeous décor… I even took pictures of the bathroom, y’all.
We ate on the screen porch. I love me some porch sitting, so this was fantastic. Look at those yellow doors! And those precious menus! I should go ahead and apologize now for the excessive use of exclamation marks in this post.
Lisa herself came out and set those flowers out – we about died.
My choices: spicy crawfish salad & squash casserole. Both very good! Also, look at that cute little cast iron dish! It goes without saying that I loved her Spode dishes.
Mom’s choices: layered salad & cheese grits. The grits were delicious. I cannot speak to that salad because I do not eat it. Mayo = yuck. But, Mom and MK both said it was really good.
MK: fried chicken & mashed potatoes. We knew one of us was for sure getting the chicken. It was so so so good. When I make Austin take me here for a date night, I’m definitely getting the chicken.
And we finished with peach pie to share. This peach pie was not like anything I have ever tasted. I expected it to basically taste like peach cobbler, but it had really bright flavor thanks to what I think was lemon juice. We also agreed that there was nutmeg in it, which was different but delicious. Also, another cute dish!
We also started with some un-pictured squash puppies. They were un-pictured because we inhaled them so quickly!
And finally, the bathroom. We were the only ones in there, and I couldn’t help myself! I just loved the décor so much.
The framed botanicals might be my favorite.
This meal was the perfect end to a long Saturday of shopping. I cannot wait to go back with Austin… or anyone and everyone else I can convince to go with me.
