This past Saturday evening, we met my parents over in Rockwall (a Dallas suburb) for dinner. We meet them over there quite often and usually end up at the same places over and over again. This time, my mom suggested trying a new restaurant she saw that had just opened in the downtown area called The Family Table.
Prior to walking in the door, we weren’t sure exactly what kind of food they served (we obviously assumed home-style food). It turned out to be barbecue, which is my husband’s fave! The menu also includes chicken salad and chicken & waffles.
The sausage was a little spicy, which I absolutely loved! I also liked the coleslaw because it wasn’t drenched in dressing like some places make it. The beans were tender and tasty. You can also get free white bread with your meal. My husband had some of the turkey and brisket, which he liked as well. I tasted some of his brisket and thought it was good also.
I’m not a big barbecue fan (I know! They should revoke my Texan status!), but I’d definitely go back to The Family Table for a meal. Good food. Good service. Plus, it helps support a local family and business!
When you eat out, do you like trying local restaurants, or do you prefer to stick to chain restaurants?
*Edited to add that this restaurant is now closed. A new restaurant is supposed to take over the space.
