Jack’s Porch Swings

Though billed as a sports bar, Jack’s Porch is more of a bistro, offering semi-upscale fare.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Jack’s Porch advertises itself as an “American Sports Grill.” Yes, the menu is full of traditional “American” stand-bys (burgers, fries, wings), and the walls are covered in flat-screen TVs. But Jack’s is in Southla...


Hey, Good Lookin’

There are a lot of nicely decorated eateries in town: some way more so than others.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Sometimes when you go out to eat, you don’t care what the joint looks like. Other times, the surroundings are part of the joy of the meal — low lighting and a romantic ambiance for date nights, good background music and fun...



So Long, and Thanks for All the Chicken-Fried

Chow, Baby and Christy Goldfinch
Everybody breathe a sigh of relief: This is my very last Chow, Baby column ever.


Ted E’s Burgers: More

Slinging specialty burgers in the heart of suburbia is a win for Ted E’s.
ERIC GRIFFEY
The sprawling suburbs and outlying areas of North Fort Worth haven’t been historically known as exciting culinary hubs. The restaurant landscape is dominated by national and regional chains. And all those fast food joints. It...



Attack Patty Shack

Toppings mixed into the meat? Head out to Patty Shack Burgers.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Patty Shack Burgers might best be described as a hole-in-the-wall with ample attitude. Unfortunately, the place suffers from a distinct lack of external signage. Once you turn off Highway 360 and onto Avenue K in Grand Prairie,...


Zippy’s All-American Comfort

The nearly decade-old classic downtown diner is finding its niche in a new part of town.
BY SOHANA IRENE KUTUB
In a cozy corner at North Main and 20th streets near the Stockyards sits Zippy’s All-American Grill, a no-nonsense restaurant that was located downtown for nearly a decade. In an area oversaturated with Mex-Mex and Tex-Mex op...



Saviano’s: Real Italian?

You’ve never had Italian food until you’ve had Saviano’s – Italian grandmothers aside.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Saviano’s proclaims, “If you ain’t had Saviano’s, you ain’t had Italian.” Grammatical issues aside, that’s a bold statement. But the new downtown restaurant has the goods to back it up.


Bite into Hammerhead Sushi

Though sushi is the thing at this sleek TCU-area establishment, pan-Asian offerings abound.
JIMMY FOWLER
Nestled somewhat discreetly across from The Aardvark on West Berry Street near TCU, the recently opened Hammerhead Sushi is laid-back but also aiming to be something a little more than just a college joint. Tan walls with black...



Cross Eddie Deen’s

This barbecue stalwart’s new Arlington operation delivers the goods.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Eddie Deen’s Crossroads, in the shadow of Cowboys Stadium, isn’t actually located near a crossroads. Unless, of course, you consider the intersection of Overpriced Parking and Horrible Traffic to be some kind of junction. T...


Café Brazil: Trad Diner Goodness

Dozens of coffees and a 200-plus-item menu make this new TCU-area diner a hot spot.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Café Brazil is not one of those churrascarias, where sultry, gaucho-clad waiters serve meat from large sticks. The distinction is important. This Fort Worth diner on West Berry Street in the spot formerly occupied by Los Vaque...
