DENTON – GOBI MONGOLIAN BARBEQUE
(Teasley Rd. Denton)
This tasty locally-owned design-it-yourself barbeque is what Gheghis Grill aught to be. Fresh ingredients, good variety, reasonably priced. A great place for the adventurous, the experimental, and those who want to design their own high -protein, lo-carb meal.
DENTON – JASMINE II GRILL AND HOOKAH LOUNGE
(Sunset Rd. Denton)
Best Middle Eastern Food in Denton County. Top-notch falafel, good baba genoujh. Only flaw, the pita is just meh. Still, and excellent place to take your superhero team for shwarma after a hard day of fighting extra-terrestial armies.
FLOWER MOUND – Asia Island
(Mall, south west corner of FM 407 and FM 2499)
For non-buffet Chinese dining, Asia Island is my first choice. Store-front atmosphere and some innovative dishes alongside the traditional Chinese-American fare make it a very nice eating experience.
FLOWER MOUND – Burgers and Brats
(6100 FM 2499)
Best hamburgers in the county: big, crisped on the outside, juicy on the inside, remarkably flavorful. Often skip the fries [which are good] because of the size of the burger. Also make a worthy Philly cheese steak.
LEWISVILLE – Parma ITALIAN/PIZZA
(129 E Round Grove/FM 3040)
Parma offers the closest-to-New York style pizza I’ve found in Denton County. Sold by the slice, they don’t pre-cook their sauce, and the resulting crisp thin crust, with little puddles of cheesy grease, is just like it’s supposed to be in the Big Apple.
JUSTIN –407 Barbeque
(1213 FM 407)
Literally a pre-fab double-wide, come for brisket at lunch, it’s the best I’ve found in the area. Usual and tasty cole slaw. Beef ribs on the weekend!
