Hey, Bud! What's going on at Chop House Burgers in Pantego?
Tough to tell. The doors were locked for a few days and city officials said they believe owners were remodeling the kitchen at the Pantego burger grill made famous by Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives." Founder Kenny Mills, who sold it to the Kim family a year ago, has returned to Dallas. Will keep watch. (P.S.: Chop House Burgers should not be confused with Chop House Burger in downtown Fort Worth and Euless, or with the Mercury Chophouse prime steakhouse in Fort Worth and north Arlington.)
Hey, Bud! Is there a restaurant in Fort Worth that serves roast beef and Yorkshire pudding?
—Jan, Fort Worth
I'd go straight to the anglophiles for this one. Try asking at From Across the Pond in North Richland Hills, or the Londoner bar in Colleyville.
Hey, Bud! Is there someplace to have dinner and watch July 4 fireworks?
Not really. You'll have to dine, then watch. I'd suggest Cooper's Old Time Bar-B-Que in the Stockyards, and then watching from the parking lot. Downtown, I'd say try Wild Salsa or Chop House Burger and then walk north on Taylor Street to the viewing site. Also, lakefront Flight on Eagle Mountain Lake might have a view of some fireworks somewhere — I'd ask.
