Going Totally Texan and Tacos at By the Horns Brewing

  The greatest tacos ever to grace a greasy shell in DFW are almost always found inside an unsuspecting gas station. This is Texan knowledge 101. It goes in the same handbook that requires Texans to love anything dealing with longhorns, brews, queso, margaritas and recently, Topo Chico. By the Horns Brewing has not only read this handbook, they’ve turned it into doctrine. Located in Mansfield, By the Horns Brewing is the latest brainchild of Chef Jason Boso. He’s the man behind the comfort food classic concepts, Twisted Root Burger, (there’s also one next door) and the forever bustling Truck Yard. Some who’ve spent a little time chasing cheesesteaks and…

CFF Main Event Recap 2018

Patiently waiting in line to meet up with my devouring destiny, I struck up a conversation with a couple. “We look forward to this event every year,” she happily exclaimed. Though they’d been tempted to attend other grubby galas around town, The Main Event for Chefs for Farmers ALWAYS got their coins. Once again, it was money well spent. Held at the historic Dallas Heritage Village for the first time, this year appetites were allured by a variety of delicious bites but wagyu beef took center stage. Some took a traditional approach to the tender meat, but others went a cut above, like the Wagyu Beef Gyro Airbread or the…

The Biscuit Bar Bedazzles with Buttery Biscuits

The Biscuit Bar – 5 Stars Few things in this edible existence are worse than biting into a dry biscuit. You will require no less than a gallon of water to wash down the unpleasantness. But, when a biscuit is buttery and soft with just the right amount of crispness, then you have found a beautiful, beautiful biscuit and chances are, you’re eating it at The Biscuit Bar. A place that serves biscuits, tots, and alcohol on tap sounds too deliciously carby and boozy to be true. But, alas it is. Located inside The Boardwalk at Granite Park in Plano, owners Jake and Janie Burkett are serving up comfort one…

Getting Fried at #getfried Fry Cafe

  #getfried Fry Cafe Part of the joy in being alive comes from knowing that fries exist. And there are so many versions of their fried potato existence.

Brunch and Other Good Things at Thirsty Lion

  A damn good fried potato aka French fry will always be a spot of weakness for me. Pair that with a well-seasoned spicy crispy chicken sandwich, and I’m ready to commit.  While I am not particularly crazy about a lot of chain eateries, when a place does things right, you’ve got to give props. And, without a doubt Thirsty Lion deserves quite a few props. Late last year Thirsty Lion joined multiple other eateries opening their doors at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving. With their founding roots in Portland, and knowing the delightful things I know about the grub in Portland, expectations were HIGH to say the least.…
