Like everyone is saying, Construction is Terrible around this time of year ( Too hot in the summer for Construction). 635 is an absolute MONSTER, if your Gps tells you to get on this freeway, STAY AWAY. That goes for anyone staying in North Dallas, Plano, Addison, Garland... Even at night there will be wall to wall traffic
1st Report from Dallas
sorry, double post
in case anybody is unaware there IS IN-N-OUT IN FT WORTH NEAR THE TCU CAMPUS. you're welcome.
I didn't catch any of them. This is my only weekend away from my wife&kids who despise BBQ, so don't let me down, boys.
Sonny Bryan's is usually pretty good. Salih's used to be good - I don't know if it's still there, though. I lived there in the early 80's.
in that 100 degrees?
Left Tulsa yesterday and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol is everywhere.
Flying to Austin right now where buddy lives, driving up early Saturday, beyond pumped!
I actually think it's one of the best layouts for any of the mega-airports I've been to. Yeah, it's a heck of lot harder to get around than, say, CMH but whe you compare it to the other mega-airports in it's level I think it's boat loads better than LAX, O'Hare, JFK and MIA. I really don't get the tiny little alleyways thing - there are signs everywhere saying which way to what terminal. Now if you came in in terminal A I can understand that - half of it is under construction (yes, it's a theme here in DFW...)
Most all of the road construction is around the airport - once you get south of it and off of 183/121/114 you should be good to go although you're still going to deal with traffic depending on where you are and which way you'll be going as it relates to traffic. ALWAYS check the traffic before you leave to go anywhere - a wreck on a major highway and kill an hour easily...
Sunscreen? What's that?? It's too hot to be outside! ;)
Please chant that
I attended a conference in Dallas a while back, and the travel information provided by the conference actually included this warning: "For your return flight out of Dallas, please arrive at DFW an hour earlier than you would normally arrive for a domestic flight at any other airport."
Went to this restaurant in Fort Worth last month and got the brisket tacos and they were in the top 3 things I've eaten in my life. Highly recommend.
O'Hare at 11:50 am? I cannot wait! Go Blue!
Stuck In Ohio 2 reccomended Joe T Garcia's in Ft Worth as a destination for authentic Tex-Mex. Our group hit Joe's tonight and the reviews are universally positive. Only two mains, either encheladas or fajitas but we wobbled out of there very impressed - guacamole like you have never had before. No reservations unless a group of 20 or more but plenty of parking just south of the StockYards complex. Not as fancy as it looks on the website and a big casual patio flips no problem. GO BLUE!
