New Heim BBQ location opens in west Fort Worth
Hey, Bud! What are your three best barbecue restaurants these days?
Right now in mid-April? Heim Barbecue in Fort Worth, BBQ on the Brazos in Cresson and either Smiley’s in Ponder or 407BBQ near Argyle. Panther City BBQ is good, too. But watch out for Flores Barbecue’s truck, opening soon.
Hey, Bud! What are your three best chicken-fried steaks these days?
—Somebody every week
Mary’s Cafe in Strawn, Billy’s Oak Acres BBQ in Fort Worth, Ranchman’s Cafe in Ponder. With an honorable mention to Babe’s Chicken Dinner House, Star Cafe in Fort Worth and Seven Mile Cafe in Fort Worth, Keller and Denton.
Hey, Bud! What are your three best burgers these days?

Toughest of all. Lately, the three best have been at 407BBQ in Argyle, Heim Barbecue in Fort Worth and Big Daddy’s Ship Store on Lake Grapevine. The new Rogers RoundHouse burger in Fort Worth is solid (definitely order the tots). I’m anxious to get out to Ben’s Triple B near Wesleyan and to Knife Burger on Crockett Row, and back to Mo’s Best Eatery in Arlington. (For a bison burger, Roy Pope Grocery.)
