Norma’s Cafe, Addison, TX

Norma's Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Back in early December, I was in the north Dallas area for meetings.  On Friday around noon, I headed back towards OKC, and remembered there was a Norma’s around there somewhere.  A quick Google Maps search brought me there.  I got there at 1245, and was seated immediately.

I had a bacon double cheeseburger and fries, just about as straightforward as you can get.  The fries were pretty good.  The cheeseburger was EXCELLENT.  Great beef, grilled with a nice crust on it, the thing even looked good!  The way a burger should be.

Service was very friendly and fast, even though the place was fairly crowded.  My check was somewhere around $12.  The iced tea was very good, and kept refilled.

I will be happy to go back to Norma’s.

Potbelly, Addison, TX

Potbelly Sandwich Shop on Urbanspoon

This is the third Potbelly I’ve been to. The first, in the Chicago area several years ago, I wasn’t particularly impressed by. The location at Campbell and US75 in Richardson is pretty good. And so is this one.

I got a Farmhouse salad; it was pretty darn good. Raegan got a grilled chicken sandwich, Erin just got just a cup of broccoli cheese soup, and Ian just got a cup of chili. All of this was very good. Service was fast and friendly. Our check was $33.02. The iced tea was excellent. Not a bad sandwich place at all.

Cavanaugh Flight Museum, Addison, TX

26 May 2014

We had just visited a store for Erin, and Ian noted a sign pointing to this museum. We like airplanes, and decided to check it out.

First of all, we got to drive through the toll tunnel running under Addison Airport. I didn’t even know there *was* a tunnel under the airport.

This is a nice museum that occupies three hangers at the airport. They have airplanes on display from WWI, WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam. Most of the airplanes are in very good shape, and some are flyable. There are a couple that not unexpectedly need some TLC. Most of them have a story attached to them, mainly what the units that owned the planes did with them. There were a couple of airplanes from other services.

One thing that was very cool was a couple wooden wings being rebuilt. It was very neat to see the joinery used.

It cost $10 per person to tour ($8 for seniors or military). It’s worth it, I think.

Johnny’s Pizza House, Addison, TX

Johnny's Pizza House on Urbanspoon

We had dinner here while on a pilgrimage to the nearby American Girls store :).

When we got there at 1820, it was completely empty; we nearly drove off. I’m glad we didn’t. Raegan got a small (8″) canadian bacon, mushroom, and green olive pizza. She ate the entire thing.

Erin and I split a large (14″). Hers was bacon cheeseburger (without the onions), and mine was meat plus (pepperoni, hamburger, sausage, and bacon). That was one of the best pizzas I have had in a while. It was probably in the top five, including the outstanding pizza that we had in Bozeman last summer. It had just the right amount of sauce (which was just a touch spicy), the toppings had FLAVOR (yea!), and the amount of cheese was perfect. The crust was a thin crust, which got softer as eating continued, as the crust absorbed some of the meat grease. That, BTW, is not a bad thing.

The tea was pretty good (brewed there!). Cooking time was a little longer, but on the other hand, the pizza crust was nice and crispy.

Again, a simply wonderful pizza. I would eat here any time. Our check was $31.42. Great stuff.
