Grand Lux Café

If you are from Dallas you know that Grand Lux Café is a nice place to eat at. It is not the most upscale place but it is pretty decent it is connected to one of our best and known malls named the Galleria.

(before we start let me remind you I have been a waitress for 3 years and currently working on my minor degree in hospitality management so I do have an idea how the restaurant business works)

ok so BOOM!…..

Lets start with the waitress I can not call her by her name cause I do not know it and I’m guessing she did not feel the need to share it!  MISTAKE #1

She was not personable at all and hardly said anything HELL I don’t even think she said, “are you guys ready to order”. I believe we had to tell her what we wanted to order. We can make that apart of mistake #1 just to cut her some slack.

I ordered the Shrimp Scampi Linguine ….


Doesn’t it look so good? Don’t be fooled like I was cause it wasn’t! Not only was it not good my food came out 5-10 min after the rest of the table. As a server or chef you know that it is most important for food to come out at the same time. While waiting for my food I did not receive a notice or an apology about the wait! MISTAKE #2

At this point I was over it all and informed the waitress that I did not like the food and she can inform the manager that it took too long for it not to be good. She did not ask me if I would like something else nor did the manager come to the table for a follow up. MISTAKE #3

Finally..

I ask another waitress to bring the manager over when he came I informed him about the service and he simply apologize in the simplest manner as he could which slightly irritated me. He also informed me that the pasta will be taking off, as if  I was going to pay for it anyways.

if you have not guess by now… I WILL NOT BE ATTENDING GRAND LUX AGAIN !!

Now this place will make you get up at 6 in the morning and make you “Rise & Shine” frfr!

  • I  had biscuits and gravy
  • sister had pancakes
  • brother had CHICKEN & Waffles

When I say EVERYTHING was good! Literally EVERYTHING was good!

The chicken had the perfect crunch, the pancakes taste just like fall & christimas, and the biscuit taste just like big mama made them ! I AINT LYING !

Biscuit & Gravy

This place is located in Las Vegas off Flamingo

Straighten w/NO HEAT!

This is my hair before I straighten it . As you can tell  it is a little worn out and slightly damage.

So this is synthetic hair, I can not put a lot of heat on the hair because it will damage it completely. The simple trick to straightening synthetic hair is “HOT WATER”!!! Who would’ve thought ! I literally took a pot of boiling hot water, put it on my wig hair, & let it dry.

imageThe finished product still had waves in it but for the most part it got straight due to the fact I did not use a flat iron.

Checkers

I usually see Checkers on the movies or how people rave about it on Facebook. So I was more than excited when I came across it while visiting Florida! I heard they were known for thier fries, I wasn’t starving so that’s what I decided to get. The menu was full of cheap deals but I just stuck with fries . The fries were good in my opinion they taste exactly like Popayes fries! To experience  Checlers you should go on your next trip to Florida !!!

 

Sugar Factory

If you don’t know the Sugar Factory is known to be a celebrity “hot spot”  & also known for their  fish bowl drinks that smoke up the glass when the  liquor  is poured in ! 

Let me start by saying we waited 40 minutes to be seated !! May I add my party & I had reservations ! 

Oh! The drink was 30$!! So we waited another 40 minutes for a $30 drink!

image

(The prices were not on the menu! So I was unaware of the price & no I didn’t think to ask because $30 was not what I was expecting )

Café Du Monde

Beignets!!

I absolutely could not leave New Orleans with out getting me a beignet, so what better place to go to than Café Du Monde! While waiting in line at 5 in the morning, all I could imagine is that these beignets taste as good asPrincesses Tianna made them. In all reality they just taste like donuts 😒. Which was not bad just basic. I recommend you get one just to say you had one! Like I did!
