Los Paisanos does things the old-fashioned Mexican way.
JIMMY FOWLER
There are (at least) two businesses in Fort Worth with the name “Los Paisanos.” One rents charter buses at I-35 and East Seminary Drive. The other is a restaurant and taqueria in the old Los Alamos space near the Rose Marin...


Brewed’s main focus is a big selection of beer and coffee — but the food is also pretty fine. Willex Tindell

Newly Brewed

This eclectic Near Southside gastropub has quickly found its groove.
JIMMY FOWLER
Brewed opened last month on the Near Southside on a stretch of West Magnolia Avenue between Hot Damn, Tamales! and Yucatan Taco Stand, and from the start, the place seemed to struggle with being all things to all people: coffee...

CHOW, BABY
Chow, Baby recently played the lottery for the first time. I didn’t win, so I’ll have to delay the opening of my karate-themed soul food restaurant, The Kickin’ Chicken, which I planned for Magnolia Avenue. The Near South...

Eastward, Ho!

Chow, Baby
Is it possible for a restaurant in a big green building in a neighborhood with very few non-fast-food options to be labeled a hidden gem? Maybe, but La Rueda (2317 Oakland Blvd.) in East Fort Worth south of Meadowbrook Drive, w...



Z’s Salad Trio (center), roast beef hoagie, and chicken salad sandwich — with fresh lemon and key-lime tarts — make for an appealing invitation. Lee Chastain

A Lying Winter

Chow, Baby

Beyond Lederhosen

Chow, Baby
My introduction to all things German was at Edelweiss German Restaurant (3801 Southwest Blvd.) when I was a kid. My memory of the place was that of a German theme park, with an oompah band decked out in lederhosen and dirndls a...


Just the (Food) Facts, Ma’am

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby eschews “hard news.” Corruption, exposés, and who-shot-John are usually the province of my more flinty-eyed colleagues. Chow, Baby gets flinty only about things like poor service and boring cheese plates. So whe...

The letter from U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison in response to a query was nice, but, um, factually challenged. Topic: the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would run from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico (via Texas). Problem: Hutchison...


Little Germany: Big Flavors

This hole-in-the-wall just north of downtown is much more than just sausage.
STEVE STEWARD
There’s this Tim Allen bit from the early ’90s where he disparages German food thusly: “If you can’t shove it into an animal casing, you don’t eat it.” And then he makes pig noises. In Germany, obviously, saying an ...
