What I Got For Christmas + OOTD

Hello lovelies!

I really do hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. I only got a little bit for Christmas this year and that is totally alright with me because Christmas is not about getting the most presents. It’s about celebrating the life of Jesus Christ and spending time with the ones you love, so this Christmas I wasn’t expecting much.

I always like looking at the “What I Got For Christmas” videos on YouTube so I thought I would do a blog about my goodies. I hope you enjoy!

#DallasGoodEats: HopDoddy Burger Bar

Hello all!

Another Dallas Good Eats here!

I went to HopDoddy yesterday with my 2 sisters. We were craving a good burger so we decided to try this place.

They are located at 3227 McKinney Ave. Dallas, Tx.

Hours: Open Mon-Thurs 11am-10pm,
Fri-Sat 11am-11pm, Sun 11am-10pm

We went on a Monday around 2:30. There was only a few people there so it was pretty quiet. They have a pretty good selection. I do wish they had more variety of burgers though. Check out the menu here—-> HopDoddy Burger Bar. I ended up getting the Continental Club. I was expecting a club-like wrap, but it is like a burger. I was also expecting turkey deli meat, but it was actually a turkey burger. Nonetheless very tasty. I enjoyed it.

The fries…AMAZING. My sister and I shared the truffle fries. They were so good yall. It comes with this sauce that adds something special. Also ask for the chipotle sauce.

I wish they had a wider selection of shakes. We ended up not trying the shakes.

Overall a good place to grab a good burger.

I have been twice and both times has been amazing. Great ambience, service, and food.

The first time I went I was thinking healthy so I ordered one of their egg white scrambles…Delicious.

The second time I went I craved their chicken and waffles. Can you say the BEST chicken and waffles in Dallas!?? It actually may be. The waffles have bacon cooked in the batter. The chicken comes topped with gravy and hot sauce-not too much not too little. It was heavenly. My sister and I are now on the hunt for the best chicken and waffles in Dallas. Johathon’s (check out post/review) is a very close 2nd. Can anyone beat Breadwinners? I’ll keep you all updated!
