BYOB French

<p>Once settled into your Carrollton apartment, you'll want to check out one of the town's favorite restaurants. Babe's Chicken Dinner House is an institution. Very inexpensive prices get you a huge dinner with so many side dishes, there's no way to go home hungry. For Mexican food, there's El Paisa Cocina Mexicana which is an old fashioned style place serving up great food. Make a reservation at Amici. It's a five course menu, and you bring your own bottle. Fantastic food from one of Carrollton's nicest chefs. The town also has plenty of ethnic cuisines available, and this is one town where you can't go hungry!</p>

Tango Carrollton

<p>At night when it is time to get out and about, try Agave Azul Mexican Kitchen - Tequila Bar to start. Of course, the tequilas are popular but they make a mean martini too. Casa Vieja is a restaurant but they offer great tango and boleros music for dancing. Carson's Live is a night club just on the Carrollton-Dallas border, and if you would rather dance than talk, this is the place for you. Great sound system, great drinks and they stay open late!</p>
