A view of Texas

Dallas dominates Texas like no other city, with its skyscraper skyline and sprawling suburbs. The sheer size of Dallas means that one of the best ways to get a view of the city is with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Rental Dallas. Travel in style and comfort as you and your group move around Dallas in your fully equipped rental bus.
Take your charter bus down to Northgate Boulevard and get a table at Cafe on the Green. This restaurant overlooks the richly landscaped grounds of the Four Seasons Las Colinas, and provides a visual feast for the eyes. The decor takes its cues from Asian design, with bamboo floors and potted bamboo all around, creating a slick, sophisticated setting in which to dine. The wines are expertly chosen to complement your meal by sommelier James Tidwell. Cafe on the Green features a classic menu, with many tried and tested dining favorites such as corned beef hash teased with ancho chile flavor, chocolate-dipped fruit and caviar-sour cream canapés and pomegranate striped bass. Two private rooms are available for groups, and there is a children’s menu.
You’ll need a charter bus to take you and your group up to Rough Creek Lodge, about an hour outside of Fort Worth. This exclusive executive retreat and upland bird hunting lodge sits on 11,000 acres bordering Mallard Lake, and the floor to ceiling windows gives diners a beautiful view of the lake and landscape. Furnished in western ranch style with leather covered oversized sofas and club chairs, Rough Creek Lodge is a great place to sit back and enjoy a meal after a day on a charter bus. The menu is obviously heavily game influenced, by Chef Gerard Thompson’s menu also caters for those who prefer their meals green and not red. Dishes of note are the seared Hudson Valley foie gras with pheasant ravioli, sautéed greens and black mission fig compote, pan-seared ring neck pheasant with Portobello mushroom risotto and gulf red snapper pan-seared and flavored with spicy ginger hoisin sauce.
If you’re having a business lunch, or a celebratory dinner, take your rental bus over to Cacharel in Arlington. Located just off Interstate 30 in Brookhollow Tower Two, this elegant French restaurant located on the ninth floor affords diners with commanding views of Six Flags Over Texas, the Dallas Cowboys football stadium and the Texas Rangers baseball stadium. The food is memorable, with sautéed escargots with grapes and pecans in an herb butter sauce, ostrich grilled steak and their legendary hazelnut soufflé. If you are planning a larger event with a bigger charter bus group, Cacharel has a Grand Ballroom that caters for bigger functions, with catering to suit.
For a grand view of Texas, take a rental bus from Bus Rental Dallas. Bus Rental Dallas friendly staff are on hand to help you plan your trip with a selection from their fleet of rental buses, and they provide personalized service for every customer.
