“The Lunch Buffet is the best”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I am not normally a fan of buffet meals for a variety of reasons; however, the lunch buffet at Texas Spice is an exception to the rule.

The food is freshly prepared from the local markets and features many healthy selections. The variety of salads and vegetable dishes keeps me coming back. The meat courses are well seasoned and healthy. This is one o the few restaurants in Dallas where you can eat out and still eat a very healthy meal without being limited to the salad menu.

If you want to splurge, the dessert menu is excellent with a cup of fresh coffee!

“Decent but a bit pricey to be attached to a low cost hotel.”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The food was good but the prices can be a bit pricey considering the type of hotel that it is attached to. The hotel at best is no more than a 2-3 star hotel attached to a restaurant that seems to have prices of a 3-4 star hotel restaurant. The restuarant is convienient for patrons staying at the attached hotel and nearby businesss. Parking can also be a problem unless you are parked on the street.

“Average a little $$$”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

My father stayed at the Lawrence Hotel where this place is located. The food was good, the cost was a bit $$. We where a party of five and they automatically added the tip.

“Excellent food a short walk from Hyatt”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

My daughter and I ate here on a Saturday night when we stayed at the Hyatt. It completely surpassed my expectations. My daughter got the fillet and it was a great cut of steak. It is every bit as good as a Morton's or Capital Grille steak at a much better price (but without the ambiance). I had a chicken sandwich which I loved.

The restaurant was empty, which seemed wierd for a Saturday night, but I would highly recommend this place.

“Average food and service.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Founders Grill is attached to the Hotel Lawrence where I was staying. The atmosphere is acceptable and the food is average quality. The bar is somewhat limited. They didn't have any single malt scotch. The service is average.
