SHAKE IT BABY!

26 Oct

 Few things kick ass like a great milkshake.   I tend to keep vampire hours so I am often up at 3:28am craving a chocolate milkshake and some chocolate donettes.

Like now.

This is where these new convenience store shake machines are really coming in handy.    I see them at just about every gas station now.   You pick a shake from the freezer, rip off the top- and drop it into the shake machine.   Choose the type of consistency – thick or thin- and boom.   The shake comes out perfect.

They go for around 2.49 – which is cheaper than most ice cream shops.   Add to that, the idea of getting it at anytime of day makes this extra tasty.

Seriously, where are my car keys?

REVIEW: HUNKY’s Burgers

3 Jul

These are the places I instantly love.   Out of the way.   Found it by accident.   Fantastic food.  Great location with a friendly staff.  Since the extraction of all things Johnny Rockets here in the DFW, I am left without a cool 50’s diner burger joint.   I loved Johnny Rockets and was certain that there would never be anything even close.

I like being WRONG.  Sometimes.  Okay this time.

Hunky’s (this location is in the Bishop Arts District) is a full-on-throwback-shakes-and-burgers-joint.     I love it!

You can see just from the picture alone, that this place is clean, classy, and put together well.    I walk in the place and the counter help is already smiling and quickly asks if I had been there before.   I look around and see milkshake machines, a soda fountain, and a cooler with bottle specialty sodas (which is awesome following the demise of the Soda Gallery).

They take me through the menu, and I am seated and within minutes I had a hot and juicy cheeseburger and some thick fries.   Each bite and sip of a creamy and dense chocolate malt was eating away at the memories of heartbreak at the loss of Johnny Rockets.

I have found a new love and it’s HUNKY’s!

In a weird sort of way it’s kind of strategically located in the BISH area.  It’s at the end of the street.  So after a few hours of strolling in and out of cool shops, it’s a great place to hit last and relax with good food.  OR…OR… you can start the day off with a burger and malt…and then walk it off through the streets of the BISH.  Either way – it’s a good day!
