Building the Zeke at Buddy’s BBQ
Hey, Bud! Do you know why Buddy’s Bar-B-Q in Bedford closed?
—K.H. on Facebook
Buddy Haga is moving when he finds a new location. For now, he’s selling as a mobile vendor or caterer. He’s looking for a different location and left the Brown Trail convenience store.
Hey, Bud! What was the name of the Tex-Mex restaurant at the curve on White Settlement Road? Does anybody else have barbecue chicken enchiladas?
—James, Fort Worth
That was an El Arroyo from Austin (no longer related to the one in Arlington). It had distinctive barbecued chicken enchiladas with green sauce, and I’m not sure why nobody else has mixed those flavors. Enchiladas Ole uses smoked chicken in enchiladas, and the Woodshed Smokehouse has smoked game hen tacos.
Hey, Bud! Since Don Pablo’s closed, we don’t have anyplace for tacos in Ridgmar. Where do we go?
—Leonard, Fort Worth
Since Don Pablo’s, Taco Bueno and Del Taco closed, you’re definitely in a taco desert. There’s a great taco shop inside Rdgmar Mall, Taco Master, but outside the mall you’ll have to settle for brisket tacos (when they’re available) at Woody Creek Bar-B-Q. Nearby, go north to Valdez Tacos y Tortas in River Oaks, or south to Mi Cocula in the Ridglea neighborhood. (Surely a Fort Worth neighborhood can’t go very long without a Tex-Mex cafe.)
