Main Street Deli

Reviewed By Robertb75040 - Garland, Texas

I went here for lunch with my wife. Passed it by the first time but slowed down and found it on second pass. Very diversified menu. Food was hot and price was reasonable. Will definitely come back to try one of the other menu items.

Reviewed By backtotheislands - Rockwall, Texas

We went to Bankhead Brewing Company yesterday for lunch. We have been once before. When we arrived yesterday they had their weekend brunch menu available and the chicken fried chicken with jalapeño gravy was available. It was awesome! Truly delicious comfort food! My husband had the carnivore pizza. It was good, solid pizza, but not 5 star like my chicken was! We also had spicy bloody Marys and Irish coffee. I am not a fan of the utilitarian type seating many restaurants are going to. I like cushioned seating! I like their rustic decor and it's walking distance from the Dart Rail. All in all its a strong 4 stars, but if you go on the weekend the chicken fried chicken is 5 star comfort!

Opa Greek Taverna

Reviewed By TXborn - Texas

The food was just okay. We had 4 different orders and all of us thought food was just "meh". Probably won't go back, way too many better Greek options at other places.

Napoli's Restaurant

Reviewed By Jennifer F - Terrell, Texas

This little restaurant has been in Rowlett for many years.
Good food and service. The food is cooked fresh while you wait with a small peak at the front of the restaurant to see the chef cooking.
The manager at this restaurant has been there many years with great service with a personable manner. Clean and affordable.

Zuko Pizza Pasta

Reviewed By rdcastro007

I always order The Works, extra thin. We had cardboard pizza from a local Italian restaurant the day before. When I suggested pizza from one of the best places in Rowlett, nobody complained and they never heard of Zukos!
Also ordered The Lent special...1/2 cheese and 1/2 veggies. My version.

El Centro Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By 860SusanB860 - Rockwall, Texas

Located in downtown Rowlett, El Centro looks like a little homestyle Mexican restaurant. The interior was small but clean and welcoming. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Nothing was special or extraordinary - just regular TexMex food. The chips and salsa were pretty good. Our combo plates with tamales, enchiladas, tacos, rice and beans were served piping hot and were enjoyable. It was an "average" Tex Mex meal. We could have gotten the same foods and same tastes at El Fenix or El Chico.

Deno's Kitchen and Spirits

Reviewed By V2427GPjohnw - Rowlett, Texas

What can't I say about Deno's? Phenomenal food, great service, great atmosphere. We used to travel to Addison or Dallas for good italian food, now it's just minutes away. Bar none, the best Italian food I've had. Folavorite is the Cicilian Lasagna or the chicken parmigiana.
