Staycation Weekend in Denton, Texas #dentontakeover

Some weekends are spent chilling with bae and some are spent with your fav foodie friends eating way too much.

If you know us, you know we recently experienced the latter. We spent a relaxing 2 days in our old stopping grounds of Denton, TX, (Go Mean Green! 🦅) eating until it was time to go home.

Where did we stay you ask?

Well, we stayed in the most darling AirBnb house located in the quaint little city of Argyle. This house gave us Colorado ski lodge vibes without having to leave Texas. If you are confused as to why we decided to staycation there, check out these awesome pictures of the location!  

To give you a little background on the house, it’s available on AirBnb to rent out for as long as you need. On the lower level, the house comes with 3 bedrooms, a full size kitchen, washer and dryer and a greenroom that is perfect for photo ops. The top level has a pull out bed and tons of games for the staycationers to indulge in. The old school gaming system is the nostalgic icing on the cake that makes this place awesome!


Now we can’t have a staycation without alcohol right?! Thanks to the good folks at Calamity Legendary Gin, we were gifted a bottle of Title No. 21 Whiskey, Nue Vodka and of course their Calamity Legendary Gin. These made for great pre-dinner cocktails!

Food of course was included on the agenda, so here is the rundown of everywhere we ate during our Denton Weekend Staycation.

LSA Burger

If you know anything about Denton, you know The Square is one of the best spots in town. There is always live music, affordable drinks and great food. LSA Burger has a great selection of beers on tap, apps and of course all things burgers!

The brisket queso is a must try, and you can’t go wrong with parmesan fries!

Paschall Bar

Above the local Denton scene sits the small world of Paschall. We say small world because that’s exactly what it is. They have a strict limit of how many people can be in at one time which makes the location ultra exclusive to those who are lucky enough to enter. For your drinking pleasure, they have everything from old fashions to sazeracs. While there, we tried a variety of there drinks. Add Paschall’s to your list as places to go during a trip out to Denton, Texas.


Barley and Board

We have been in love with this place since they opened back in 2015, so of course we had to make a stop here for the best brunch Denton, Texas has to offer! We had a full experience of menu items and left no dish behind! For an unforgettable brunch experience in Denton, Texas, you have to stop by Barley and Board. Tell them the EATS Blog sent you! 😉

Bumbershoot BBQ

Bumbershoot BBQ is one the newer spots that opened up in Argyle, Texas and we ABSOLUTELY love it. The small by mighty restaurant cooks up some impeccable barbecue favorites that will definitely leave you wanting more. Across the board, everyone at the table went crazy for their loaded tots. These babies are piled high and topped with chopped brisket, cheese, sour cream and jalapeños! This dish is destined to become your next guilty pleasure.

Earl’s 377

Earl’s 377 is famously known for their pizza, but this time we decided to venture off the beaten path and try out some of their pasta options.

Earl’s 377 pasta is just as legit and their creative pies. Their spaghetti and meatballs dish is big enough to feed a small family, (or a regular food blogger like ourselves). Their lasagna was a group favorite as well. It was flavorful and was reminiscent of an authentic version.

Although the weekend staycation in Denton was a short one, it was spent gaining weight and hanging with some of our favorite foodie friends. Keep your eyes peeled because we see another takeover on the horizon. We are looking forward to seeing what other cities we can devour!
