In just a couple years, late-night grub choices in the Fort have gone from pancakes and salmonella to a booming scene rich with variety and present at virtually every corner.
In the West 7th Street corridor, Taco Heads (2700 W 7th St) still rules the roost, slinging gourmet tacos until 2am Wed-Sat. Not far below on the taco ladder is The Wild Rooster Bar (3294 Camp Bowie Blvd), serving its full menu until 2am Fri-Sat and keeping the to-go window open ’til 3am. Trough Burger Wagon is still the best walk-up burger option in town, flippin’ and grillin’ until 2am Thu-Sat.
The Near Southside is still your best bet for late-night brilliance. Newcomers Holy Frijoles! Food Truck (1408 W Magnolia Av), parked behind The Usual cocktail lounge, keeps dishing out upscale, authentic Mexican on non-plastic plates until the bar closes at 2am. No late-night list would be complete without TCU-area standbys Salsa Limón (2916 W Berry St), open until 2am every night, and Fuzzy’s Tacos (2917 W Berry St), cooking until 3am on weekends.
