Meatgasms on the Foodie Frontier

Chow, Baby
I was tooteling around East Seminary Drive looking for a new hole in the wall, mentally forming my story before I even knew where I was going to eat. In this week’s edition, I thought, I imagined myself as the intrepid badass...

White Privilege Taco Binge

Chow, Baby
It strikes me as pretentious and white-privilege-y to say that I “found” a great place to get tacos, because “found” is usually code for “drove to a Hispanic neighborhood and ate at a place where hundreds of people ea...

Penny Pinching at Taco Heads

Chow, Baby
I’ve never felt more like my grandpa than on my recent trip to the shiny, new brick-and-mortar location of Taco Heads (1812 Montgomery St., 817-615-9899). “I’m not paying $4.25 for a taco,” I thought, knowing full well ...

Give Me Liberty — or a $1.99 Taco

CHOW, BABY
I felt terrible for the kids standing in the median holding promotional signs for Sombrero Mexican Food (201 W. Rosedale St.). It was one of those warm fall afternoons that seemed all the hotter after the tease of a few days of...

Eat Here … You Know the Rest

CHOW, BABY
Chow, Baby doesn’t know what it was thinking. Sometimes an idea for a dining column ends up more like material for a horror story. Such was the case when I decided to eat exclusively at gas stations for a week — I lasted on...

Chow, Lion in the Chow Line

CHOW, BABY
If Chow, Baby had its way, it would dine out almost every night of the week, instead of mostly for lunch and on weekends. Nothing against cooking at home, it’s just that there’s so much to sample in Fort Foodie these days. ...

Here’s Lookin’ at You, Velvet

CHOW, BABY
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, it had to take over mine. Like Ingrid Bergman sauntering  into Rick’s Café Américain in Casablanca, Velvet Tacos (2700 W. 7th St.) recently waltzed into town and too...


Tina’s tasty tacos are only $1.99 a pop. Lee Chastain

Tina’s Cocina: Mex-Mex

Finally, authentic and affordable Mex-Mex comes to the bustling Near Southside.
LAURIE JAMES
Tina’s Cocina occupies space in one of the few strip malls on West Magnolia Avenue, and owner Juan Solis didn’t spend much of his capital improving the dining room. That’s fine. What comes out of the kitchen is good enoug...



The food comes out fast and furious — and delicious — at Velvet Taco. Lee Chastain

Velvet Taco: Sumptuous

Don’t let its Dallas pedigree turn you off. There’s some delectable eats inside.
STEVE STEWARD
There are probably two reasons you don’t want to eat at Velvet Taco: You’re still sore about its replacing The Gold Standard. And Velvet Taco comes from Dallas. Honestly, both are kind of silly, but if harboring those grudg...

Tacos to Ease the Pain

CHOW, BABY
Chow, Baby was sad when La Media Naranja (961 W. Magnolia Ave.) closed its doors earlier this year. The tiny taqueria/juice bar was never that busy, perhaps because the building is set back from the road and thus failed to attr...
