Proof! You Can't Judge a Book by it's Cover!

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

 

While taking the Broker Responsibility MCE last Monday, I had the good fortune to sit next to a Broker from Pilot Point. We started talking about business and the areas in which we work. Penny came from Pilot Point and she was the one who encouraged me to visit the Pilot Point Tulip Farm which I recently wrote about called Pilot Point Tulip Farm - Proof Dreams Come True!.

 

Penny shared some interesting points of interest, including the Magnolia Station Cafe. Instantly, I was intrigued by the name. However, Penny warned me, the place doesn't look like anything you'd expect but the food is the best in Pilot Point and within its surrounding areas. When she described it, I imagined an old building, formerly a gas station. That didn't bother me. But finding it on the Square was a challenge. Finally, after several times driving around the small square and through the neighborhoods, my friend and I arrived at our destination. Let me introduce you to The Magnolia Station Cafe!

 

  

  

 

 

My friend and I got there early for lunch and I have to confess, I wasn't quite sure I wanted to order some food. We studied the menu and then lots of people started to arrive. We offered to let the lady that came after us, order first. But, I asked her if she ever ate here before and she said, "Yes!" It's the best food around, so we ordered. We both enjoyed our lunch on the "Patio Dining." I sat in front of the old gas pump and the food was truly delicious! No if, bugs, or buts about it! The food was excellent! It has been two days since I ate there and now I'm craving the sweet potato fries and the best chicken sandwich I think I ever had! It may not look like anything remotely close to any restaurant I've ever eaten at before, but I give the Magnolia Station five stars for excellence!

The Magnolia Station Cafe is funky . . . .  It's what on the inside that counts.

Good luck and success.

 Good morning Patricia Feager . I do have to agree that we cannot judge a book or an eatery by its cover. We need to reconnect sometime soon.

Patricia Feager From the looks of it, I would have been a bit hesitant too.  But, as you say, you can never judge a book by its cover!  Sounds like a keeper now.

Patricia,  It certainly has character ... and a real nostalgic look to it.  Those seem to be the best places with great food ... no bugs ... or bugs bunny. 

Happy Easter

Elyse BermanGita Bantwal, and Joe Petrowsky - finding the right place by word of mouth or accidentally stumbling upon it is quite a surprise. But I have to say, referrals are best and getting confirmation from a random person in line who has been there before really makes a difference!!!

Have a Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

Hi Patricia  -- there can be some very wonderful dining experiences found in the least likely kinds of places.

Michael Jacobs - Gems like this are rarer than many people think. We can't judge a book by its cover for if we do, we spoil the opportunity to gain something different, better, or ultimately the best. I have been to fancy restaurants and the food was skimpy, not good, and the service was only good when the waiter brought the check. 

I really liked what you had to say!

Those little hidden treasures, right Patricia. I give you a star for bravery - it's tough to eat in a spot that makes you wary.  Great analogy - people and places cannot always be judged by appearance alone. :)
