Well, it’s safe to say I’ve found my new favorite restaurant in Frisco. Truly. Picture this: a modern, yet rustic, restaurant that is serving up unique versions of all your favorite home cooked meals. Elevated comfort cuisine, if you will. Each dish is not only packed with mouthwatering bites, but has it’s very own special touch and one of a kind attention to detail to it that sets it apart from all others. Sound enticing?
Meet one of Frisco’s newest restaurants, Barnlight Eatery located at 15922 Eldorado Pkwy (intersection of Eldorado Pkwy and Custer). Recently opened in the Spring of 2014 by the charming husband and wife duo Phil and Christina Doyal, this restaurant is getting down to the basics while blending in rich southern Texas flavor.
They say, “we delight in serving the soul of Texas cooking to every table,” and after sampling their menu last week I couldn’t agree more. Here are the highlights of the meal and Barnlight experience:
Black-Eyed Pea Hummus
I probably could have eaten a whole meal out of this hummus. Wow. It was amazing. I want some right now just thinking about it. The amount of flavor this hummus packs pleasantly surprised me. If you want a healthy and satisfying appetizer for just you or you and your family, this is your pick hands down.
Okay. So I LOVE crab cakes. This is generally an easy sell for me. I haven’t ever eaten a southern style crab cake though. Hints of corn and jalepeño really set this crab cake apart from all the others and the sauce it sits in really hits it out of the park.
Artisan Grilled Cheese
Swiss, boursin and monterrey jack cheese, bacon, seared green tomatoes, frisse, on challa bread. I probably had you at bacon. THE BEST grilled cheese I’ve EVER had. And I really, really mean that. This dish right here will be apart of my go to comfort food from this moment on.
Chicken Fried Shrimp
How can anything called Chicken Fried Shrimp not be amazing? What’s not to love? Shimp = delicious. Chicken fried anything = delicious. Barnlight Eatery’s southern marriage of the two topped with yet another awesome sauce that compliments the dish in all the right ways = superior deliciousness.
Zinfandel Pot Roast
This pot roast falls apart at the light touch of your fork. That’s always a key sign that the pot roast in front of you is about to blow your mind. And your taste buds. Barnlight Eatery’s Pot Roast did not disappoint. This was one of those dishes you just can’t stop eating, no matter how full you are!
Fried Breast of Chicken
First of all, this isn’t just fried chicken. No. Definitely not your average fried chicken. Think of your average delicious fried chicken, then multiply that by 10. Even then, this mouthwatering chicken is beating that and will be the fanciest fried chicken you ever had. And the sauce drizzled across this dish really is the cherry on top!
Key Lime Pie
You may think you know Key Lime Pie. You may think you know exactly what you’ll be getting and tasting when you order this Key Lime Pie. You are wrong. This Key Lime Pie tastes like no other Key Lime Pie I’ve ever had. This secret recipe is already a fan favorite at Barnlight Eatery and I have officially jumped on the Key Lime Pie bandwagon. There is a surprising yet comforting kick in this pie that will have you coming back time and time again! A perfect and refreshing finish to any meal.
Every single one of these dishes wasn’t just your average dish. You could immediately see and taste all the effort and attention to detail that went into every single bite. I’m telling you, Barnlight Eatery will quickly finds its way to the top of your favorite restaurants list. A must try in Frisco, Texas!
