I bet you thought this blog would lead you to some mouthwatering enchiladas in Irving, Texas. Well, just hang on and ride, that's coming up in a bit. But first, I wanted to remind you of the great many events going on in Irving over the weekend. Instead of listing just a few, what we've got here is the WHOLE enchilada.  So as our great Mayor Stopfer says, "Get out there and enjoy our great city!" And for other area events, be sure to visit our website at www.irvingtexas.com.

Created to be the lighter, more cheerful alternative to Sunday dinner, brunch has been embraced by the American society for more than 70 years. How can we not embrace it? The buffet, the eggs, the pastries, and mimosas! Oh…we can hardly wait for Sunday! Well in the meantime, allow us to list down some of our favorite brunch spots in Irving to get you inspired. 

“Life is too short to eat basic food,” – y’all know that famous quote right? No? Oh, right, that’s because we just made it up! With so many bold flavors and daring combinations of food available around town, this quote is so relatable to us here in Irving. I mean y’all, we have everything from boozy milkshakes with a slice of pie on top, to a 46 ounce-steak that’s as big as our face! Scroll down and read more. 

Pastels, egg baskets, and pretty flowers are everywhere – you know Easter is just around the corner! One of our favorite traditions to celebrate this glorious Sunday is by savoring a great brunch at one of Irving's tasty restaurants. Emerging as a foodie haven, the city of Irving nestles a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. To make it easier for you, we’ve put together this awesome list of restaurants offering excellent brunch buffets for the holiday. Keep in mind that reserved seating fills up quickly, so read through this post and make your reservations ASAP! 

A trip to the AT&T Byron Nelson wouldn’t be complete without a little PGA TOUR player spotting. Pros come to the TPC Four Season to compete, but hey they need to eat too. So during the week of the Nelson they are practically everywhere, all the time, and for the most part, they’re used to being gawked at and signing autographs. But if you want to avoid looking like a creeper, I suggest you eat, shop, drink and play among the pros in their natural habitats—a mix of restaurants, bars and uniquely Irving establishments (make your reservations now). We give you: Top 5 Places to See PGA TOUR Players Off the Course During Nelson Week. Now... just act natural.
