Eno’s Pizza Tavern

Posted by    |    July 20th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

Go to Eno’s Pizza Tavern for an incredible atmosphere & delicious pizza.

The first time I went I felt like I had stepped into a pizza tavern in New York; it has such a great sidewalk cafe vibe. They go the extra mile in supporting the community by using fresh, local ingredients and a huge variety of drinks for the beverage connoisseurs in the area. They have recently added an upstairs which is great for families with kids. Game area with darts and fuse-ball table will keep the kiddos busy while you enjoy an evening out.

This restaurant is truly a gem for Oak Cliff. Twinkle lights, live music on certain nights, fresh pizza, drinks, appetizers… perfection. Check out Eno’s video from YouPlusDallas.

I tend to be picky when it comes to hamburgers.

Located on the corner of 8th St. & Bishop Ave.

Hunky’s, in the Bishop Arts District is hands down my favorite hamburger in Dallas. The old fashioned diner is a great, family friendly atmosphere as well.

Hunky’s features “Hot Off The Grill” 50’s style burgers made with hand-formed fresh ground beef. They offer over fifteen varieties of beef burgers. Want something else? No problem, they also serve fresh ground turkey burgers, veggie burgers, all beef hot dogs, grilled chicken sandwiches, salads and many other styles of sandwiches.

Not to mention they serve fabulous cakes, Blue Bell milkshakes, hand-battered onion rings and crispy tater tots. This is a restaurant that will not leave you disappointed. Truly my favorite in the area!

MAKE Shop & Studio

MAKE is on Bishop Ave. between 8th St. and 9th St.

MAKE was opened in 2005 so that people had a place to learn traditional crafts but make modern projects.This place is designed to fit everyone, from the urban professional to the busy mama…it is perfection! Not only does it have a shop filled with local designers; but also a creative studio space hosting classes, private events & open studio time. They specialize in sewing, screen printing & even body care. So, whether you venture over alone or decide to get a group of girls together, taking a class is totally worth your time. A great creative outlet, plus you leave each class session with a project!

Did I mention everything is handmade? A fan of etsy? If so, this place has your name written all over it.

As a first time pregnant mother-to-be or as a busy mother of three, the huge market of baby items can be a bit overwhelming.

You need to visit the Cozy Cottage, a children’s boutique in the heart of the Bishop Arts District. It is a darling, quaint house that sits on the corner and they happen to be in the hub of fine dining and other unique shopping destinations. They specialize in unique baby and children’s items, including boys and girls apparel, shoes, toys, hairbows, kids’ backpacks, purses and other accessories, tutus, wall décor, special occasion products, baby gifts, diaper bags, newborn layettes and more! As a mom of a 15 month old with another on the way, I am looking for style and convenience…not to mention they have a fabulous baby registry!
