Ordering @ Hattie's, Babe's & Twisted Root, Dallas

Arriving this Friday evening from San Francisco Bay Area, we're planning on dinner at Babe's Chicken in Carrollton (may be, may be Frisco) before heading out to spend the weekend in Plano. Cousin lives near Hedgecoxe & Coit hence the indecisiveness in location. Any recs on dessert as the kids love pies & such?

Saturday is going to be spent with cousins and hopefully one meal out at Ali Baba (8 plus baby). Then on Sunday, if my dad isn't tired of what he'd consider a marathon weekend of eating, I am hoping to go to Hattie's before heading out to Waco. What are the recs here (two of us allergic to shellfish, others love it)? Would my 12 yr old love their mac & cheese or would she consider it "frou frou"? She's quite happy with Trader Joe's frozen version which is actually pretty good.

Perhaps a lighter alternative to Hattie's (for my dad), how about Twisted Root? Is their buffalo burger or Turkey burger worth a visit? I chose TR as it looks like it may be fun place for the kids. Alternately, what's tasty and reasonably healthy for dad at Hattie's?

Lastly, ignorance IS bliss. I never used to drive myself crazy planning a trip itinerary before I discovered chowhound a year ago:-)

Thank you Dallas hounds!
