Today is National Fajita Day, and as such, we suggest you try Dos Molina’s Mexican Restaurant (404 NW 25th St, Fort Worth, 817-626-9394), our Best Of 2019 Critic’s Choice winner for Best Bargain Tex-Mex. Several of our newsroom staffers eat at this restaurant regularly and refer to it as “The Trough” because of its ample portions. Even the weekday lunch special is huge despite being less than $7. The guacamole tostadas are a favorite, along with the fajitas. The service is always fast and friendly. We also suggest that you start making your grub choices for Best Of 2021, as the ballot is now live. Hint, hint.
