Hey, Bud! You wrote about biscuits. The ones at Urban Alchemy Coffee + Wine Bar in Arlington are great.

Made a special trip to investigate and found an excellent biscuit with just a hint of bacon flavor. It's from Sugar Bee Sweets, a nearby bakery, and Sugar Bee Sweets can bake you up a dozen if you like.

Hey, Bud! Hopdoddy is taking hot chicken off the menu. You had it wrong Wednesday.

—Eagle Eye, Boyd

Thanks to print readers who alerted me to Hopdoddy's menu change, and those who phoned to clear up the mystery. The hot chicken is out and the breakfast burger is in. A new Euless location will open next week.

Hey, Bud! Do you know any authentic Chicago hotdog joints in this area? I mean the type that uses Vienna hot dogs, Rosen's poppyseed buns, Chicago-style condiments and crinkle fries?

—Anne, Fort Worth

They all claim some authenticity, but I don't think any of them import Chicago buns. If I've underestimated someone, they'll call and let me know.)
