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.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
