Eats

Good Day, Sleepyhead

This café proves that breakfast ain’t just for breakfast anymore.
JIMMY FOWLER
I love all the old breakfast favorites: eggs, sausage, pancakes, French toast, bacon. I just never eat them for breakfast. Who wants to start the day weighed down by gravy and grease? Breakfast for lunch is much saner. The Sout...


Midori Sushi Experiments

Out by the airport is a plain restaurant that’s full of hits — and misses.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Does sushi have to be served in a fabulous, fancy, downtown restaurant to be good? Midori Sushi’s second location, this one near DFW International Airport (the original is in Irving), can be described as utilitarian. At best....



Thai Steak House: Yum

This new airport-area eatery offers down-home Thai hospitality and great food.
JIMMY FOWLER
Here’s a sign of great service: The owner of a recently opened restaurant on a busy Bedford freeway spends long minutes on the phone directing potential customers through road construction to get to his place. Phongphang Chok...


Scampi’s Cove: A Lakeside Grill

Out on Eagle Mountain Lake is a comfort-food haven.
STEVE STEWARD
I’ve gotta confess: I thought Scampi’s Cove was going to be an Italian restaurant. After all, Scampi’s (the erstwhile landlocked location) used to be a Near Southside staple until it became Shaw’s Burgers & Shakes a...



Intriguing Temaki Sushi

Temaki’s fare is simple but effective.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
In Japanese, “temaki” means the kind of sushi roll that looks like a horn of plenty. In Fort Worth, Temaki means an interesting new concept in sushi dining.


Shots at Revolver

The food is mostly superb, but this taco lounge has room to improve.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
It’s hard to do the Rojas family justice in a review. Their recently opened Revolver Taco Lounge in the West 7th Street corridor is an interesting mix of cool, sleek décor; an open kitchen; lounge furniture; spotless white t...



Tu Hai Times

This little Viet eatery just keeps getting better with age.
JIMMY FOWLER
The tiny Tu Hai location opened in Haltom City about 20 years ago. Original owner Jimmy Ho died in November 2009, and his three sons have been running the place ever since. Newer and fancier Vietnamese eateries have opened near...


Southside Hoagies

This Near Southside veteran offers just enough surprises to remedy chain burnout.
ZACK SHLACHTER
With the Near South Side’s recent emergence as a hip destination, you’ve got to wonder how many people remember the area anchored by Magnolia Avenue before the boom. Not so long ago, the Chat Room Pub and Benito’s restaur...



Become a Lotus Eater

Lotus Café’s Eastern fusion works more often than not.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
The area north of I-20 and Little Road in Arlington isn’t exactly known as a destination for exotic non-chain restaurants. That’s why Lotus Café is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Though the food may not be the mos...


High Five for Pie Five

The fast/good pizza concept takes root in the Fort.
STEVE STEWARD
It’s not hard to find good pizza in Fort Worth, but it is hard to find it fast. Your options are basically limited to heat-lamped lunch buffets and Pizza Hut’s greasy cheese wheels. Pie Five Pizza Co., Pizza Inn’s new fas...
