You always wanted to drink a hand-dipped purple milkshake. At The Purple Cow, you can do just that. Founded in 1989 in Little Rock, Arkansas, by chef Paul Bash and Ed Moore, there are three Dallas-area outposts that sell not only the purple milkshake but also classic Southern and general American favorites. There are burgers like the popular Hot Mama (hot jack cheese, jalapeños, salsa and chipotle mayo. Hot dogs like the Chicago Super Dog are also big sellers. The entrée list is short but is sure to please with the inclusion of chicken-fried steak and a tilapia platter. However, the real clientele are children. The Purple Cow is overrun with kids and their parents, the latter quietly sipping on adult milkshakes, including the moo jito.
Burgers, the "mundane hot dog" for tykes too finicky for ketchup squirts, grilled American cheese sandwiches, a variety of fried foods that make swell props for carb-counting lessons, ice cream desserts and purple vanilla milk shakes. The Purple Cow has everything a kid could ever want outside of Gummy Bear cell phones. There's an electric train up above that chugs along the perimeter.

You know how you know a place is a favorite for kids? When it's a 30-minute ride to get there, and the munchkin goes insane with glee when you mention the possibility you could go there for lunch.

Yet this place is clean and bright, the food is good, and kids love it. Plus, they'll spike your milkshake with hooch, so you'll love it too. Just be careful not to confuse your shake with the one the kids are slurping, or you'll never get them to come down off the train tracks. More »
Would it kill you to eat a little something, or do you enjoy breaking your mother's heart? If that sounds familiar, you'll be right at home at Kenny & Ziggy's, where authentic New York deli food is done up right. Dig into a gargantuan Reuben or corned beef sandwich. Get a bagel topped with any of the stunning smoked fish, with perhaps a side of matzoh ball soup. The enormous desserts are a must-try, especially the golf ball-size macaroons, colossal layer cakes, or an éclair that outweighs that barking Dachshund that keeps you up at night.
