best restarurants Plano Texas

DENSETSU (Japanese, Sushi Bars)
4152 W Spring Creek Pkwy
Plano, TX 75024
(972) 964-7874
This is by far the best Americanized sushi I’ve ever had. Sure, Japanese people may cringe at the idea of a sushi burrito (huge roll stuffed with tuna, salmon, and crab salad) or baked lobster roll (topped with a mountain of fried lobster bites) but they sure taste amazing. My personal favorite was the pinky promise roll – I loved the spiciness of the tuna and albacore, and the topping of scallops. The scallop nigiri is worth a shout out too – the scallop was perfectly textured and very fresh. In fact, for those of you searching for a more authentic Japanese experience, I’d recommend the nigiri or sashimi – both of which were well done. The Heavenly roll is perfect for those looking for a little less rice – the roll consists of a combination of various raw fish wrapped in cucumber instead of rice. All of them were fantastic though and I was impressed with the size and creativity of each dish. The overall price wasn’t bad either – Densetsu is definitely worth a visit!
1915 N Central Expy
Plano, TX 75075
(972) 881-8884
Love this place.  If you’re not familiar with the area it can be a little hard to find.  But when you do, you won’t regret it.  Sal, the owner/operator, makes fantastic NY style pizza.  Great food, good prices, and he always throw in a little extra.  The dude is very focused on making his customers happy.  Hope this place sticks around for a long time.
THE CAPITAL GRILLE (Steakhouses, American Traditional)
7300 Dallas Pkwy
Plano, TX 75024
(972) 398-2221
Outstanding dining experience! The filet mignon has great flavor and tenderness. The tournedos came with these herb marinated baby tomatoes that balance the acidity of the tomato perfectly – they were such a pleasant surprise. The Strawberries Capital Grille dessert came with a yummy sauce that tasted like a wine, caramel melt. Service was very thorough and accommodating.  The restaurant lighting was a bit dark for my preference but it seems like all steakhouses adhere to a dimmed lighting ambience.
Oh, I almost forgot how delicious their bread is! I loved everything! Yum yum yum!
DONA MARY (Mexican)
2300 Los Rios Blvd
Plano, TX 75074
(972) 422-6402
My family absolutely loves this restaurant. Great food and extremely nice owner. He makes sure his customers get what they pay for. Portions are great and inexpensive. The enchiladas and their nachos are awesome. By far the best Mexican food I have ever had. It’s BYOB too! The salsa is awesome and should seriously bottle it up and sell it. BTW if you come here once, you’re pretty much family after that.

It is in a small strip mall and pretty hard to find, especially at night, but once you do find it, you will not regret it.

SEASONS 52 (American, Vegetarian, Wine Bars)
7300 Lone Star Dr
Plano, TX 75024
 (972) 312-8852
The service here is impeccable. The servers as well as the managers make you feel like a celeb. They constantly check up on you and are super friendly. This is probably the reason many, including myself, always return.

Get reservations if you plan on dinner on Thursday-Saturday, otherwise endure the 2 hour wait.

Food – Get any of the flat breads as a starter, I like the Garlic Pesto Chicken best. Tandoori-Style Grilled Chicken Skewers is a great appetizer as well. If it’s in season, the squash soup is probably the best I’ve had at any restaurant. For the entree I really like (in order) the Oak-Grilled Filet Mignon, Honey & Herb Roasted Chicken, and Grilled Boneless Rainbow Trout.

The BEST part — everything is under 475 calories AND you actually feel full. So eat up!

3131 Custer Rd
Plano, TX 75075
(972) 985-9760
Everything we tried was delicious!!!  You can’t go wrong with any of their selections…I highly recommend their Torta Cubana, Yucca Frita con Chicharones…., and my favorite…Tostones, (have them fry them a bit longer…they come out better)!  But, what really made fall in love with this place was their Guava & Cheese Pastry with an AWESOME Cafecito!!! (Espresso with sugar to taste)

Note:  You must come early since the location is small…their seating is limited.

CHITOS (Mexican)
301 Legacy Dr
Plano, TX 75023
(972) 527-2704
This place is tops in everything.  My personal recommendations are the enchiladas, gorditas and the charro beans.  Drink options are outstanding.  Service is reliable and friendly.  Lots of meat filling options for the various dishes so you can try something new.
WHISKEY CAKE (American, Breakfast & Brunch)
3601 Dallas Pkwy
Plano, TX 75093
(972) 993-2253
This is a gem in the West Plano. The experience is really fun. They have an outdoor seating and outdoor fireplaces. They have MONSTEROUS burger creations and embarrassingly huge sandwiches at reasonable prices. And now to the most important part, the dessert. You must get the whiskey cake, which I don’t see how this isn’t obvious. It is phenomenal, even the cream they give on the side is ridiculously good. Definitely a MUST TRY. Great food, fantastic service.
1301 Custer Rd
Plano, TX 75075
(972) 422-4143
I have been coming to Ruang Thai for the past year, and I have never been disappointed with the experience. The food and service is always top class–the waiters are always so polite, the owner takes your order personally and remembers you the next time you come in, and the food always arrives quickly and piping hot. I particularly recommend any of the curries (they are all so delicious and the best part of this restaurant), the pad kee mao, the garlic noodle soup (n6 on the menu) or the tom kha.

Having been to various other Thai restaurants in the Plano/Richardson/Dallas area, nothing even comes close. In fact, I usually leave those restaurants wishing I had been at Ruang Thai instead.

KOR – BQ (Korean Fast food)
6505 W Park Blvd
Plano, TX 75093
(214) 390-2850
Wow! I love Korean food and Kor-BQ’s fusion take on this style of food is perfect. We had the Bulgogi (beef) Taco, Bulgogi Rice Bowl, Bulgogi & Dwegi (pork) Egg Rolls and KRB (Korean Rice Balls). All items were cook well and amazingly delicious (especially the KRB). Never had Korean food? Not to worry. This place will ease you in to loving this amazing country’s cuisine.
