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 ...


Go, Crazy Sisters

This little food truck specializing in tacos has some neat, gritty tricks up its sleeve.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
My sister has always been considered the more normal daughter. I’m the one people usually describe as “crazy.” My sister would almost never consider eating food that was passed out of a trailer window to her by a multiply...



Rising at Tollie’s Barbecue

This family-owned joint in South Arlington defines the term “moist.”
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
In a comment on the Weekly’s web site, a reader points out that our food critics seem to favor fare light on the red meat and unacquainted with the deep fryer. It’s true. Our foodies reviewed four Asian restaurants in a sin...


War on Sag

The baggy bottom boys are losing their grip.
Eddie Griffin
Haven’t we been through this before? No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service. Even an irreverent shirtless, shoeless hippie from the 1960s got the message that you cannot walk into a five-star restaurant as if you were going to the be...

Cross Eddie Deen’s

This barbecue stalwart’s new Arlington operation delivers the goods.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Eddie Deen’s Crossroads, in the shadow of Cowboys Stadium, isn’t actually located near a crossroads. Unless, of course, you consider the intersection of Overpriced Parking and Horrible Traffic to be some kind of junction. T...


Hot Tub’s is a Front

You’ll find neither hot tub nor grotto here, just surprisingly tasty and borderline upscale cuisine.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Hot Tub’s Back Porch Grotto is a new restaurant that features neither a hot tub nor a grotto, although you’ll find a lovely cedar bar area and back porch that, on the right kind of evening, might be magical. Not too long ag...



No Faux Pho Here

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby’s first misgiving about Pho Que Huong (4601 W. Fwy) was the restaurant’s location, in the upscale Chapel Hill shopping center. Admittedly, Chow, Baby has been tossing the “upscale” word around a bit too much ...


Celio’s Scores

This family-owned and family-friendly joint in Keller does Chicago-style pie superbly.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Pizza crust can inspire as much debate as barbecue sauce or fried chicken. Regional geography plays a critical role in crust preference: Specifically, do you prefer thin, New York-style fold-over crust or the deep-dish Chicago ...
