 5 star(s)  (01/22/2008)
“Nicks is one of the nicer local pubs you will ever visit. The food is outstanding and very well priced. The staff is freindly although they seem to spend a good part of their time behind the bar making converstaion with each other. There are plenty of TV around the place with various games on and a ... ”

Royal Buffet

Chicken Express

China Lake Chinese Restaurant

“Love this place! We eat there at least twice per month. I have had numerous items on their menu and they have all been great rather we dine in or take out. The staff is friendly and service is prompt.”

Dos Charros

 4 star(s)  (04/09/2009)
“I believe this is a family owned restaurant, as we've been seeing the same people working the front for years. Great Tex-Mex food at an incredibly reasonable price point. Tucked into an "old Rowlett" shopping center, it's a favorite with locals that were here long before Rowlett's population explo... ”

Tatiano's Italian Restaurant

 3 star(s)  (11/23/2008)
“The new location is nice. Staff new and learning but good. Big mistake cutting the specialties to start. They have good food but only have the blander more "safe" dishes available. They really need to get it together fast or they will start lose their client base. If your reading Tatiano's Don't be ... ”
