Tarrant Country's first Torchy's Tacos is now open in the new Mid-town development at 928 Northton St. at the corner of W. Rosedale St. and Forest Park Blvd. The Austin-based taco chain has established a cult following for its breakfast items, tacos and wide range of award-winning salsas.
We had high hopes for Monty’s Corner formerly located in Montgomery Plaza, but after only a short time in business, they have closed permanently. The Pretzel Reuben and Fried Green Tomatoes will be greatly missed.
Fort Worth also lost some yummy food truck offerings recently. The Wiener Man, The Bacon Wagon, Food Traveler, The Drifting Bistro and Zombie’s food trucks will no longer be wheeling around town.
So7 gets another eatery at 2401 W. Seventh St. Bayou Jack’s Cajun Grill is open daily for lunch and dinner and offers dishes you’d find in New Orleans, including gumbo with a rich brown roux and so much seafood that you can eat it with a fork.
Now Southlake has their very own Daddy Jack’s New England Lobster & Chowder House. With locations in Dallas and Fort Worth, Daddy Jack’s will now be serving up lobster and fresh seafood at 355 N. Carroll.
Texas Pit Oyster Bar has settled in on Western Center Blvd. Owner Leon Adams expanded on his Texas Pit BBQ empire to include an oyster bar and catfish café. If you want to catch a game and enjoy ice-cold oysters on the half-shell, Texas Pit Oyster Bar is the place.
Your sweet tooth will be satisfied at the new Dude, Sweet Chocolate shop at 2925 Crockett St. The basics to try include Crack in a Box and Chubby Nuts. Rumor is that they can be generous with samples, but we guarantee you won’t leave empty handed.
Fort Worth just simply can’t have enough patios, which is why we are loving the new Reservoir Bar, Patio & Kitchen. Equipped with 38 high-definition TVs, visitors are sure to see the game wherever they are sitting. And don’t expect bland bar food here, the Reservoir offers delicious and unique options such as Texas Whiskey BBQ pizza and Country Fried Ribeye.
For those photographers out there, Fort Worth Camera is expanding with a new store in Grapevine. Located at 318 S. Park Blvd., the new store will offer full-service photo imaging and in-house, large-format printing, as well as all the same services provided at the Fort Worth location.
