MATTHEW MCGOWAN
If a burger joint is to set itself apart from all others in a crowded field, it needs a little shtick. In Keller, Hello, My Name Is Eat has honed in on a pretty darn good one: Like Patty Shack Burgers in Grand Prairie, My Name ...


Granbury Was Berry, Berry Good to Baby

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby was born with an insatiable wanderlust. Cruelly, I wasn’t also born into a wealthy family that could satisfy my fantasies of summering in France. Still, I do my best at exploration — meaning, generally, places wi...



Yawn-N-Out

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...

Shaw’s Burgers, Shakes, and More

This new BYOB eatery is another strong entry in Near Southside’s restaurant row.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
It’s been no secret that David Shaw and Ann Diakas-Shaw, co-owners of Shaw’s Burgers and Shakes on the Near South Side, have had a little difficulty opening their new joint (see: “Bar Fight,” May 26, 2010). Shaw’s ope...
