Second Sunday Brunch Bunch: Del Frisco's Grille

We bumped our monthly brunch bunch back a week so that Lolly could join us (I wish she could come up from Austin every month), and this time we hit up Del Frisco's Grille

Despite being a weeee bit hungover from our St. Patrick's Day party the day before, Sarah and I both ordered the "White Sangria." It was tasty and refreshing, but a little on the sweet side. 

Erin ordered the Bloody Mary, and she was a huge fan. As was everyone else who had a sip...excluding me, because as much as I would love to love bloody mary's, I don't think it's ever going to happen. 

Sarah ordered the "Southern Fried Chicken & Waffles with Spicy Maple Syrup and Thick-Cut Hickory-Smoked Bacon." She really liked it and was surprised by the spicy kick of the syrup. 

I was super tempted to order it as well, but I changed my mind once the waiter said the fried chicken was all dark meat. As with the bloody mary's, as much as I've tried, I just can't do dark meat.

Erin got the "Crabcake Benedict with Poached Eggs, Asparagus, Toasted Focaccia, and Cajun Lobster Sauce." Isn't it gorgeous?! 

Jill's dish was also pretty easy on the eyes. She ordered the "Grille Benedict with Poached Eggs, Thin-Sliced French Ham, Scallion & White Cheddar Biscuits, and Chipotle Hollandaise." And she said it tasted as good as it looked, which is not always the case with fancy-looking food. 

They dishes that Lolly and I ordered weren't as pretty, but they were still delicious. She got the "Chicken-Fried Steak & Eggs with a Jumbo Biscuit and Chorizo Gravy." Lolly really liked it, but wished the chorizo gravy was more like the creamy gravy that normally comes with chicken fried steak. 

Finally, I ordered the "Steak and Eggs" special, which came with a steak and potato hash, covered in fried eggs, and served with Texas toast. I'm not sure what kind of steak it was, but it tasted like short-ribs. And it was so delicious!

My only complaint is that the eggs were really runny, which is not what I was expecting with the fried egg description (I'm ok with runny eggs sometimes, but I have to be in the mood). 

Overall, everything received good reviews from the group, and I would totally go back for brunch. There were a bunch of other tasty-looking things on the menu, including "Red Velvet Belgium Waffles with Whipped Vanilla Bean-Spiked Cream Cheese." Goodness gracious! 

Also, to say that we were all full after the meal is a complete understatement. I don't think I've ever needed a nap so bad in my life. But alas, Ava was up from hers by the time I got home. It's a good thing she is so darn cute :).

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
