It's no secret that Texas, unlike most (or all) other states in this country, is obsessed with itself. You shouldn't mess with us. We're like a whole other country. We even have cookware modeled in the shape of our state. Have you ever seen a saucepan the shape of Ohio? That's what we thought. And the folks at Plano's Love and War in Texas are as enthusiastic as the rest. With a menu highlighting dishes from across the Lone Star State (divided into areas like the border, the Hill Country, the Piney Woods, etc.), they embrace the full range of Texas cuisine. Portions are -- ready for the pun? -- Texas-sized, and the staff accurately reflect our reputation as the "friendly state." There's live music Wednesday through Saturday; it's usually country, and it complements the rustic atmosphere of the massive restaurant. http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/cityofate/2009/09/dude_food_love_and_war_in_texa.php
