Any restaurant whose slogan is “Less haters. More taters.” is guaranteed to be a favorite of ours! And just like the name implies, we really did have an awesome time visiting Awesome Times in Highland Village. Owners Tamara and Jerry Lisby opened the restaurant to become a fixture in the community they have raised their family in for the last 15+ years.
When it comes to the restaurant experience, Jerry has decades of it! And he certainly brings that experience to create some unique flavors around traditional American food like loaded tater tots, wings, burgers, and sandwiches.
Awesome Times has perhaps become most well-known since they opened for their selection of Loaded Tots. They have taco-inspired tots, pizza-inspired tots, and their truly unique Mt. Fuji Tots topped with shrimp, crab, Sriracha, and mayo finished with Teriyaki and Wasabi sauce and wonton chips.
Jerry has also put his own unique twist on Cheesesteaks. Take The Marauder which is made with your choice of Texas beef or chicken, griddled onions, peppers, white American cheese, their signature Awesome sauce, and some Texas Red seasoning.
And we definitely can’t go without talking about their amazing burgers. All of their burgers are made with Premium 44 Farms beef and one of our favorites is the Duke City Burger which comes topped with their Bueno Fire roasted green chile blend.
The dynamic of the whole Lisby family working together is something truly special to watch. And we can’t wait to see them achieve their goal of becoming a fixture in the Highland Village community because they are already well on their way!
