A Cure for Hangovers

Chow, Baby
I was first introduced to the Hangover Burger ($12) a few months back. A friend and I were having lunch at The Pour Hou-, uh, I mean the Trinity River Tap House (2725 W. 7th St., 817-335-2575), and I was drawn to the kitchen si...

Food Deserts

A coalition works toward bringing fresh food to poor parts of town.
Edward Brown
The scene looked nothing like the picturesque images plastered on billboards by the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau. Several dozen people with IDs in hand were in line in an open-air facility near a row of retail st...

The Deep North

Chow, Baby
The North Side is still the best area in town to find a lunch bargain. Where else can you get a delicious enchilada special for $3.99? There are a dozen good restaurants right on Main Street near the Stockyards, but if you real...

Grasping for Common Ground

The new TCU-area eatery has a split personality.
LAUREN PHILLIPS
There have always been enough beer dives and burger joints around the intersection of West Berry Street and University Drive, ground zero for the TCU non-Greek social scene. What has been conspicuously absent has been a hip, sl...

Dagwood’s Does West 7th

Chef David Hollister takes his hearty fare to the swanky entertainment district.
LAUREN PHILLIPS
If you’ve made it out to Ridgmar to visit Dagwood’s Grinders and Growlers, you already know Chef David Hollister can build a pretty good sandwich and tell you how to wash it down. Now with Dagwood’s Fire Grill Tap bringin...

Brunch Anxiety

Chow, Baby
I must be really spoiled. Or maybe worrying about the brunch menus of two places that just replaced their chefs is the way I cope with the chaos and misery of life. My therapist may call that displacement, but someone’s got t...

On the DF

Go to Tacos la Banqueta for the food, not the atmosphere.
Kristian Lin
The Spanish word banqueta means “sidewalk,” and the sign outside Tacos La Banqueta reads “Puro DF,” which signals that the cuisine is purely in the style of Mexico’s Distrito Federal, or Mexico City. The capital has a...

Postpartum Party

Chow, Baby
Someone very close to Chow, Baby is pregnant, and it’s really cramping her style. Don’t get me wrong, I admire the discipline it takes to abstain from booze, certain types of fish, caffeine, and pretty much everything fun i...

Growling is for Stomachs

Chow, Baby
What is it about beer and wine snobs that irritates me so? I mean, I’m a wine person, but I don’t stick my whole face into a glass of vino and sniff like I’m huffing paint. I don’t swirl the juice around, raise it above...

A Tale of Two Polanco’s

The food is great at Polanco’s Mexican Kitchen, except when it’s poured from a box.
LAUREN PHILLIPS
It was a slow, lazy Sunday evening when my guests and I pulled up to Polanco’s Mexican Kitchen in southeast Arlington. The joint was so empty that we worried it might be closed, but our server warmly welcomed us. We were seat...
