Frisco Roughriders’ ballpark grub (Frisco, TX)

Since all the local teams were ditching town for my birthday weekend in 2016, we decided to head to Frisco a weekend early to see a Roughriders game. The $9 tickets made it an appealing option, as did the $5 parking.

Zaxby’s (The Colony, TX)

I scored some free tickets to the Heart of Dallas Bowl in 2016 thanks to my cousin, who works for the Dallas PD. My dad, who was in town for the holidays, went to the game between the University of Washington and Southern Mississippi and Zaxby’s promotions were everywhere (they were the bowl’s title sponsor, so sensibly so).

Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles (Southlake, TX)

I grew up on the West Coast, where there aren’t many establishments offering chicken and waffles as a meal. I heard about them for a while when I got older, but never had the opportunity to try it as a meal until I went to a Dave and Buster’s in San Jose, and they were pretty amazing; I’ve been hunting for them (on the rare occasion I seek breakfast in a restaurant) since.

Whataburger (Irving, TX)

Whataburger is the second restaurant my family and I ate at when we moved to Irving last year, yet I never took a photo of the food! We arrived at the right time in 2015 – the Sweet & Spicy burger (above) was on the menu, our cashier was super nice and helpful when we informed him that we’d just moved to Texas the day before, and everything was fresh off the grill/out of the fryer.
