Eats Beat: Crockett Row Food Hall opens in Fort Worth
Hey, Bud! Any good lunch spots along Interstate 35 headed to Austin?
Great smoked sausage, sausage-and-kraut platters or fried chicken at Picha’s Czech-American Restaurant in West. Excellent barbecue at Miller’s Smokehouse in downtown Belton. But the most reliable stop for breakfast or lunch seven days a week is the Monument Cafe in Georgetown.
Hey, Bud! You wrote about the “Roosevelt Special” at The Original Mexican Eats Cafe. There’s a plaque on the wall saying it was President Roosevelt’s favorite meal.
—Mike, Fort Worth
Not quite,. The Roosevelt was the favorite combo of Franklin Roosevelt’s son, Elliott. He lived here and had a ranch near Benbrook. The President did visit, but the plaque embellishes the story. (It also misspells several names.)
Hey, Bud! With Aguilera’s, Granny’s and Mi Cocinita gone, what are the good “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants?
—Rodney, Fort Worth
Bailey’s Bar-B-Que, Charley’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers, Daybreak Cafe, Happy Bowl Thai, Jesús Family Restaurant, the M&M Steak House. (Dos Molinas’. Drew’s Place, Margie’s Italian Gardens and the Point on Lake Worth are too big for “holes-in-the-wall,” but they’re good too.) Send more to email@example.com.
