Dish Pirate: Pinstack’s Fish Tacos

Want to enjoy the best that Dallas restaurants have to offer without ever leaving your home?

Want to enjoy the best that Dallas restaurants have to offer without ever leaving your home? Our new recurring feature, Dish Pirate, will help you bring the city’s robust dining scene to your kitchen.

“New year, new you.” We have all heard the saying a million times, or at least seen it on social media. No matter whether you are turning over a new leaf or are already in a good groove, eating healthy is never a bad idea. Pinstack, a bowl-and-bite joint in West Plano, has done us all a favor and added a couple of lighter dishes to their bar menu.

Enjoying a night out with friends may be the opposite of your New Year’s resolution, so if staying in and making a nice, unique meal is more your style, we have you covered.
