Say Olé!

The gourmet sauces are the real stars of this little Mexican eatery.

Chow Baby

Let’s Have a Show of Paws for Arlington
Chow, Baby
When Chow, Ma left the country, she charged me with the task of keeping her Chow, Puppy full of Puppy Chow. I am a dog person, but this is a lot more dog than I’m accustomed to. The 80-pound Doberman doesn’t understand that...



Jack’s Porch Swings

Though billed as a sports bar, Jack’s Porch is more of a bistro, offering semi-upscale fare.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Jack’s Porch advertises itself as an “American Sports Grill.” Yes, the menu is full of traditional “American” stand-bys (burgers, fries, wings), and the walls are covered in flat-screen TVs. But Jack’s is in Southla...
