Dairy Queen

Reviewed By DaBigG - Slidell, LA

Got dinner take out. There was a burger with a double patty, double cheese and double bacon. Clogged the arteries but excellent. Good blizzards and service. The only knock is that I ordered a chicken sandwich and got a fish sandwich. It was still good, but not what I ordered. I would return.

The Plaza Restaurant

Reviewed By Teresa O - Corinth, Texas

We saw this location had good reviews so we stopped for late lunch. I offered odd the lunch menu chicken enchiladas with a crunchy taco. My husband ordered beef fajitas. The food is just basic with little flavor. It's not what I expected. The waitress told us the food is spicy and well seasoned. I found the opposite to found today.

K.Bryants Barbecue

Reviewed By Shuttrrbug - Sugar Land, Texas

Super friendly staff and fantastic BBQ lunch. We both had the chopped beef sandwich with fries with ice tea. This was a large meal and very tasty. K.Bryant's has a unique atmosphere, appears to be an old hardware store downtown with brick road out front. Restaurant has a bar too. Loved the old fashioned phone booth near the restrooms. Really a delightful location with great food. Enjoy!

Reviewed By Conrad M - Cee Vee

We often stop for a quick burger or to pick up something to go. My wife gets their fried fish with slaw. I like their burgers and fries. I am a great fan of Whataburger, but the nearest Whataburger is 2 hours east in Wichita Falls or west in Amarillo. The people here are really nice. We often sit outside with our dog.

Dawson's Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Teresa O - Corinth, Texas

An established location in Childress. They have breakfast, lunch, dinner and a kids menu. With a hot lunch Buffett. I selected the southwest club with jap. Bread but can out on rhye bread instead. I would have liked to have known about the change I'm not crazy about suprises. I ordered a side of fried yellow squadh. It had a few pieces that stuck together that were undercooked
My husband ordered a club with fries it was good. They have the pebbled ice for drinks.

Reviewed By salesproquo - Dallas

I didn't think I could stomach an Arby's sandwich, so I opted for the little cafeteria. BIG mistake. Hubby's pizza was awful, my meatloaf was inedible, though the dog seemed to like it okay. But seriously, who puts bbq sauce on meatloaf???? Gross. Maybe it was to drown out the lack of taste in the meat. That was the last meal I had, because I got sick when we got home and haven't been able to eat since (2 days).

Lucido's Italian Express

Reviewed By Kathy W - Flagstaff, Arizona

My family stopped here on our way through Texas last week. The food was good and the folks friendly. Sausage pizza was great. Apparently, they make the sausage on site. Chewy crust and good sauce. Salad was ok. Not fancy but fresh. The wait staff was friendly, but inexperienced. I am sure that will come with time. The place was clean, including bathrooms. Would stop there again, just for the sausage pizza. Wishing I lived closer to Childress!

Thai Kitchen

Reviewed By ScottandJanelle - Colorado Springs, Colorado

We always like to try Thai restaurants hoping to find authentic gems. This isn't one. Our server was friendly and we had no problem getting a table in this small place. The food, however, was completely lacking in flavor and seasoning. The chicken was essentially boiled in broth and served that way. There was no heat to dishes labeled on the menu as such. This might be satisfactory Thai food for the middle of Texas but it pales to even average Thai food in other parts of the country.
