TopGolf in Allen is a great location to host friends and family in a very relaxed and fun manner. It incorporates the fun of hitting a golf ball with the video game type arcade experience that allows for people of all skills and ages to compete against one another, or for the non-golfers to come and hang out.more
Since Allen is the home to many families, one of the best things to do in town is enjoy the excellent Sports Association that the kids can be a member of many teams.Anna, my four year old has a great time playing soccer and they have team sports for boys and girls from 4 years old all the way to adult leagues.more

A great evening of entertainment.The theatre is all black...ceiling, floor, walls. All the attention is directed to the stage. Seating...more

For those of you who get attached to the different styles of pizza, you may or may not be familiar with "St. Louis Style". After consulting with a native St Lunatic, it is my understanding that St Louis Style means... cheeze whiz on a saltine cracker. In other words, solid processed cheese on a thin well baked pizza. 5th Street definitely delivers...more
Braza Dancante has a dual role in the Allen community. It is both a food location and also a bar/danceclub. For the purpose of this review, I am solely going to speak to the food portion of the location.For those familiar with churrascarias, it is a place that provides gauchos who serve all the meat you can eat on skewers that they bring to your...more
If you are American, you are familiar with the phenomenon that is Chicken Wing restaurants. Whether it is the mega chains like WingStop and Buffalo Wild Wings, or the smaller chains like the Anchor Bar, chicken wings are in high demand. I have tried many, but all around, the winner I choose is Pluckers in Allen. This chain started in Austin, and is...more
Let me start by saying that The Blue Fish is in fact a chain. There are several locations in the greater DFW area, which normally means I am not interested in eating there. Luckily for them however, I am a sushi fan, so I was in anyway.Then they brought out the Lobster Roll. What a piece of monumentous sushi achievementry. Yes, English goes out the...more
If you are looking for a good greasy spoon, don't consider this one. The food here was microwaved, the sauces were basic, and it was just not a great experience. I brought my daughter over for a weekend Daddy/Daughter breakfast, and the place was eerily empty, but after the food, I know why. Skip.more
I think sometimes people rate locations higher strictly for the ambiance, but for me it is about the food. I had the pleasure of going with a couple friends on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. We had a party of 12, were seating efficiently, and were immediately hit with chips, tres salsas, and tea/water. My tea glass was never empty, despite the...more
There are about 50 outlet stores here in Allen TX.
A outlet store sells the best name brand seconds for great prices, less than at the mall.
They come right from the manufacturer.
My favorite stores here are Nine West Shoes, which I visited in NYC and believe me, the prices are much better here than in NYC.
