A meal you will never regret.

A Review: Bob's Steak & Chop House
Bob's Steak & Chop

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.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
