Fort Worth is exploding

Recommended Posts

I'm bad luck for Billy. They left the original spot shortly after my first visit. I finally went to the new one for breakfast like 2 weeks ago and now this!

Apparently the final straw with the landlord went down today, they’re working on Cityview as we speak, & Billy won’t be the new owner, hence the name change. 

Clearly, all sides knew the end was near.

That being said, the breakfast chicken fried steak was freaking awesome.

Yes it is.  Had it last week. 
 

Going to miss that location.

Who the hell knew there was a sushi joint on BI between Vickery & Camp Bowie? Never even heard of it until it made the February shitty health inspection report.

Original Fred’s won the January award for most violations.

I was reading through nextdoor this morning - doubt it would really be a 5-star but still 

Montgomery Street development

Talking with commercial realtor about land costs in our area. He said that his client was closing on the Dairy Queen and the land behind it plus the two other buildings. Plans to build 5 star hotel at that location. My guess is hotel near Montgomery and multi- story garage towards Owasso. Also know about another 5 lots being sold to build town homes.

That west 7th food hall is depressing as hell. What a complete failure. Went by today, first time in a few mos, there’s 5 stalls still operating out of 15ish total. A couple stalls I don’t think were ever occupied.

Its a ghost town in there. I've been twice, it was depressingly quiet. Half the stuff is way overpriced. The Hookers hamburger was tiny, overpriced.

 

Two place I want to hit up at the moment - Enchilada Ole, the one saturday I had time, they were closed because they lost power to half the building. 

Birdiebop, they set up shop in the moon bar.

One good thing about the new Ole is their hours. Old spot was only open for dinner like three nights/week, this one is Mon-Sat, lunch-only on Sun.

Has anybody been to Tulane's?  It's a 'neighborhood bar' n the "Foundry District" which i just think of as the area where the M&O Station Grill burger place is located.

The reason why I asked is that it popped up on my Nextdoor and I had never even heard of the place. The people who responded on Nextdoor seem to love it, but Nextdoor is full of dipshit idiots so i trust you degenerates a lot more.

Um yeah, this is 100% a go for me now.

Also, don’t know anything about the place except this article from last month. It’s near the four I linked above, give it a shot & report back. 

Quote

Chicago-style Italian beef has a new home in downtown Arlington.

Hershey’s Palace, formerly on South Halsted Street in the Windy City, has opened on East Abram Street.

Those winds blew Hershey’s everywhere else before Arlington. The restaurant moved to Breckenridge, Texas, and two Sansom Park locations before settling at 513 E. Abram St. in the Urban Union district.

The new location is more central for Hershey’s expatriate Chicago followers and for new patrons seeking Hershey’s chicken tenders, catfish and Chicago sandwiches.

You can’t tell it from the menu, but Hershey’s is best known for an Italian beef sandwich. Order it “dipped” or “wet,” with hot giardiniera relish.

Hershey’s also serves steak hoagies, chicken wings and “pizza puffs,” along with a routine thin-crust pizza.

Each comes with — a big plus — crinkle fries.

It’s a small take-out counter with a few tables, although an expansion is planned.

It’s open for lunch and dinner daily in a former chicken stand on Abram near Fuzzy’s Taco Shop; 682-323-5050.

Fucking AWFUL name for a Chicago joint though.

spy’s eagerly awaited 2020 Ole review... 

Pros: 

Food still great
Service still great
Full bar room now with a few TVs 

Cons: 

Parking may actually be worse. Shitload of neighboring businesses ain’t happy. 
Prices went up, but we knew that was coming. 
Margs shrunk. Still good, but changed to shittier glassware. 

 

Overall still a solid A, & will kill it in that much richer locale.

Anyone else concerned about their parents? My buddy’s kids go to the school where the dude was giving Ash Wednesday blessings.  That’s gotta be a few hundred cases extrapolated out over the past few weeks. Right?

Grandy's on the traffic circle at 183 and Camp Bowie closed down.  Not surprising.  When they re-opened I went there...once. It sucked.  I'm shocked that I didn't get sick with the uncooked rolls they served and the horrible chicken. 

Too bad, I liked their Tuesday and Thursday Chicken Fried Steak special.  It used to be really good.

Sounds like Brazos was fucked even before the ‘Rona. 

Quote

BBQ on the Brazos is without co-founder John Sanford for a few weeks as he recovers from a severe infection following a surgery.

Pitmaster John Sanford II is smoking meats as always at lunch Tuesdays through Saturdays at 3803 Southwest Blvd. But the restaurant has suspended Sunday lunch service until the senior Sanford returns

Co-owner Kathryn Warren said the family may need a fundraiser to help pay the uninsured cost of Sanford’s multiple surgeries and treatment.

BBQ on the Brazos was the highest-ranked local barbecue restaurant in the most recent Texas Monthly top 50, before the current openings of more than 12 new craft barbecue restaurants and stands such as Hurtado, Goldee’s, Dayne’s and Derek Allan’s.

Dive still open? 

Kennedy still likes it.

The Dive Burger Bar has the best burger available from a drive-through window.

The burgers-and-seafood grill at 3520 Alta Mere Drive on the Benbrook Traffic Circle serves a classic chargrilled, brisket-blend burger with prime steakhouse flavor — but sold out the window of an old KFC with a notorious past.

Whether you get the regular burger with fries or the very good salmon burger, leave room for the Dive’s stellar Key lime pie; 817-560-3483, thediveoysterbartx.com.

I sure do, and he certainly would know. You should go with him to Twin Peaks sometimes, he knows everyone that works there and they all come over to chat.

Boomer Jacks on 7th let just about everyone go.   The owner might need help to reopen. 
 

Sucks. 

I wonder if that Seven Lounge at the top of the bank building at 7th and University set the world record for the absolute worst time to open in bar history.

While not a bar, The Chicken Salad Chick opened where the old Baker brothers was located near Montgomery Plaza this week!

Went in there yesterday, the dude behind the butcher counter said a few people have inquired about buying it but they need to completely redo the butcher/deli/kitchen which won't be cheap.

My mother in law lived around the corner from this grocery in the 80's and they would deliver to her home.  Always appreciated the wonderful customer service provided by this FW classic.

I live around the corner from Roy Pope. They've been trying unload the place for a couple of years. They tried getting it rezoned. Someone was wanting to put up some type of building, office space, IDK.  Apparently several neighbors fought it off.

If you ever find yourself on 377 in Benbrook & don’t want fast food, go here next to the post office. Big portions for not much $. I usually get the cayenne chicken sandwich, but burgers & catfish are good too.

Bump for my little Benbrook joint, killed it again tonight.

Couple more options. 

Quote

▪ Fuego Burger, 4400 Benbrook Highway, a regular finalist in the Star-Telegram “Burger Battle” judging, added take-out meals such as New Mexico green chile chicken casseroles ($25). A Fuego burger combo is $6.99; 682-250-5600.

▪ Gyro House, an Arlington favorite, 720 W. Division St., 817-460-4842, gyroshousetx.com.

That gyro joint is in an old shitty Taco Bell or something, but it’s good.
