A Review: Bob's Steak & Chop House

A Review: Bob's Steak & Chop House

A meal you will never regret.

To start off, I really would’ve liked to title this “Best Steakhouse in Dallas” or even Texas, but since I have only been to a handful of steakhouses between Dallas and Houston I didn’t think I could make that claim. However, Bob’s Steak & Chop has won numerous awards, including Best Steakhouse by D Magazine. So I would say that a lot of people agree with my love for Bob’s.

Although there are locations across Texas, and a few out of state locations as well, my boyfriend and I frequent the location on Lemmon Ave. in Dallas, which just happens to be the original location. When you walk inside Bob’s you feel like you’re in a different time period. It’s so homey and traditional, not trying to be so modern and interesting like many other fine dining restaurants these days. Even the outside of the restaurant is so unassuming, you very certainly could miss it if you didn’t know where you were going.

Along with the atmosphere, the wait staff is overly friendly. While there are always a few people here and there that aren’t quite as outgoing, the majority of the waiters and waitresses we’ve had at Bob’s on Lemmon have been so friendly you feel right at home. This is also a nice change of pace from other high-end restaurants that very obviously treat people under the age of 21 very differently than “real adults.”

The menu has a decent variety of food, almost everything you would expect from a classic steakhouse. There are definitely no curveballs. Bob’s is as classic as classic can get. That being said, the food is just amazing. I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve ordered there. And my favorite part is that you truly get what you paid for. Each meal comes with a glazed carrot and a side of potatoes (mashed, baked, or skillet-fried). More and more these days restaurants are charging extra for sides that traditionally came as part of the meal. So it’s nice to feel like you’re not being ripped off. And even the glazed carrot is perfect at this place; you know your food is going to taste great.

Although I haven’t visited other Bob’s locations outside of Dallas, I’m pretty certain that they are equally as fantastic by the amount of awards each location has received. If you haven’t been to Bob’s Steak & Chop, go. As someone in college who is hesitant to spend a lot of money (which for me is like $100) at one time, I have never regretted eating a meal at Bob’s. I’m pretty confident that you won’t regret it either. And hey, if you’re a student not feeling like taking the risk, ask your parents to take you there next time they visit you. You can’t lose.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.


I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
