Garliq Doesn’t Stink

The newly opened family-owned Southlake eatery piles on the flavor.
BY LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Garliq is a newish, family-owned, family-friendly eatery in Southlake. The menu is full of interesting factoids about the herb, which is apparently also considered a vegetable. Unusually, for a cheerfully decorated strip-mall r...


Tequila Rain Still Charms

Chow, Baby
Can it be that Chow, Baby is actually mellowing as it slowly and handsomely ages? Sounds like crazy talk — and yet when Chow, Baby entered Tequila Rain Cantina & Grill (415 N. Main St., Euless) to be immediately set upon ...



Dig into Rivera’s Mexican

This newish restaurant in Ridgmar Farmers Market serves up delectable Tex-Mex.
JIMMY FOWLER
Rivera’s Mexican Grill & Market, located inside the Ridgmar Farmers Market building across from Ridgmar Mall, was hopping like a roadhouse last Saturday night. Outside, the red-and-white-striped roof and a sign advertisin...


Red-Button Service

Chow, Baby
Choosing among the six films showing at the West 7th Movie Tavern (2872 Crockett St.) was fairly easy, as only one featured a cast member that Chow, Baby currently has a crush on. Unfortunately, other than the beauteous Alexa D...



Big On Cooper’s Bar-B-Que

The recently opened Stockyards joint is all about the meat — and then some.
LEONARD CALLAWAY II
Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que is all about the meat. For real. Located near Billy Bob’s Texas, the recently opened restaurant, with 26,000 square feet, is almost — almost — as massive as the World’s Largest Honky To...


Billadelphia Frydom

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby got to Billadelphia’s (2110 W. Berry St.) about 30 seconds before the lunch bell rang at next-door Paschal High School, so it had already ordered and had an outside seat staked out when the chemistry-class-numbed h...



Picosos Paints a Lovely Picture

The Sansom Park-area Mexican restaurant lacks heat but not quality.
ERIC GRIFFEY
Family-owned, off-the-beaten-path Mexican food restaurants have certain admirable traditions to uphold. The food should conjure images of a Mexican grandmother starting from scratch and toiling for hours over a hot stove. The d...


Salad Days

Chow, Baby
In what could be termed a bit of an overreaction to the subpar sub it had last week, over the weekend Chow, Baby was driven to have itself some real sandwiches — 550 miles from here. Domilise’s is an old-school corner bar a...



Mandola’s Markets Quality

The new eatery/store Italianizes Arlington Highlands.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Early in the last century, Mandola’s started out as a family-owned market in Houston. And now, about 110 years later, third-generation chef/restaurateur Damian Mandola and his extended family co-own several other Italian join...


No Fission Here

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby’s main reason for being, or at least for being here in this column space, stems from its near-holy-roller conviction that holes-in-the-wall serve great food. The divier the place, the better the burger/pho/tacos/wh...
