I celebrated the big 3-1 on Friday! The majority of my day was spent cleaning house and doing laundry, but I got a chance to go have a nice dinner with my family that night.
I have been dying for a chance to wear these shorts for a couple of months now! I obsessed over them as soon as I saw them and just couldn’t resist buying them for an unknown occasion.
I paired them with a simple denim shirt, but a fun brightly colored chiffon shirt would be really pretty too. Super fun for a Texas summer night!
Now let me tell you about our dining experience! Bin 303 is one of my absolute favorite restaurants to eat at in Rockwall. I have eaten there several times, but most of my family had not. I was so glad our waitress took the time to tell us some history about them, because I had never heard the background. The house was built in the 1920’s and was actually ordered from a Sears Roebuck catalog. We got to dine in the master bedroom. The food is branded Texas Cuisine and it really is so delicious! Everything is fresh and local and the meat is cooked over a mesquite flame. The menu changes seasonally, so you can always expect new items to try.
Now here’s the place where I let you down. I am not a food blogger and 1) I did not take pictures of the food and 2) I order the same thing every. single. time. Lame, I know.
My go-to order consists of an appetizer of the Iron Skillet Crab Dip. It’s so cheesy and delicious! They serve it with thin tortilla chips which are seasoned with something heavenly. For the main course, I order the Texican Burger which has aged tillamook cheddar, chipotle mayo, pico de gallo, nueske bacon & avocado spread. I get 303 fries as my side. They are thinly sliced and have that same magical seasoning as the tortilla chips. I die.
My sister and her boyfriend both ordered the filet and jalapeño bacon mac & cheese and they said it was fabulous! That means a lot coming from a couple of people that live in uptown Dallas and dine at amazing restaurant frequently. They also ordered an appetizer called Two Brothers. It was guacamole and pimento cheese which I believe had crab meat in it. The each were very delicious!
Bin 303 is also known for their impressive drink menu. I’ve had some delicious cocktails before and the beer and wine list is extensive.
All in all it was such a great experience, as usual. Delicious food. Fantastic service. Wonderful atmosphere. Also, let me add in that I brought my 3 boys along with me. I never see many kids in there, but they accommodated them so well!
If you have spare time to go check them out, please do so! I just saw on their website that Tuesdays are $10 burgers and $5 kid menu items! It would be a good opportunity to get a great meal for a reasonable price!
