Keep a Firm Grip on Your Gimme Cap

GAYLE REAVES
Pink tennis shoes or combat boots? It’s been that kind of in-the-trenches year in our fair burg and, really, the rest of the state. Still coming out of the recession, still growing. The Lovers of Air-Breathers contingent, tho...

Otra Vez

CHOW, BABY
The first time I visited Enchiladas Olé (901 N. Sylvania Ave.), a semi-new Tex-Mex place on the East Side, my server came on a little strong — and by strong I mean he practically tried to convince my guest and me to upgrade ...

Into the wilds of South Fort Worth comes a zesty new Cajun joint.
EDWARD BROWN
It’s easy to forget, but there’s more to Fort Worth’s food scene than West 7th Street and West Magnolia Avenue. Though South Fort Worth is known primarily for McCart Thrift Center and millions of fast-food joints, the are...

Steak-ed with Faint Praise

CHOW, BABY
Some friends wanted to take me out to a steakhouse for my birthday recently and suggested Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine (4259 Bryant Irvin Rd.). Bonnell’s a steakhouse? I don’t think so. I know it may have a bit of the loo...

I’d Like to Devour You — But Not at the Table

CHOW, BABY
There I was, sitting in the tiny dining room of Benito’s Taqueria (1904 Hemphill St.) — not to be confused with Benito’s Mexican Cuisine on Magnolia — and two people outside were all over each other. I’m not talking a...



The Bearded Lady’s L.U.S.T. burger is well named. Brian Hutson

Classy Dame

The Bearded Lady’s menu is a (good) work in progress.
STEVE STEWARD
Remember when bars were just bars? These days, the industry’s lean toward higher-end offerings makes that seem like a quaint idea. Long gone is the time when two tap trees with three run-of-the-mill macrobrews and an import l...

Can Buy Me Love … at Dinner

CHOW, BABY
As a child of divorced parents, Chow, Baby benefited from some unhealthy parental competition growing up. Apparently, the contest for favorite parent is still raging. Last week, both Chow, Mere and Chow, Daddy took me out for d...
