Texas Eatin’ On The Road! Coppell’s J. Macklin’s Grill
We had to road trip to Dallas this past weekend to take our dog to see a specialist vet in Lewisville Texas... So while we were there, we decided to try something that wasn't a typical chain restaurant and was unique to the area. Since the relatives we stayed with live in Coppell (and I also discovered I've been pronouncing the name of this town wrong my entire life--the accent is on the second syllable, not the first. So it's "cop-PELL", not "COP-pell"), we thought we'd head down the street a bit from their house and see what we could find.
Low and behold--J. Macklin's Grill. The official address is 130 N. Denton Tap Road #120, Coppell TX 75019--in case you wanna go. Everyone in the family is covered here. There's something for everyone. The kid's menu has more than just a burger, hot dog, or chicken strips on it. There's also Mac and Cheese, and grilled cheese too. Plenty of great appetizers and the main entrees include some really great salads. I had the Cobb Salad, my wife had the French Dip. But there are plenty of choices including chicken, burgers, steaks, tacos, and seafood including salmon and panko-crusted flounder.
They also serve great beverages for all ages--my wife had sweet tea, I tried the Peach Bellini.
There's also great outdoor seating, so when the weather is nice during the day like it was over Christmas weekend-we had to take advantage and sit outside.
If you're road-tripping this weekend for New Years' celebrations in Dallas or the surrounding area--thumbs up n this one! Give it a try and let me know what you thought!
