Heim Barbecue will open its first brick-and-mortar location at 1109 W. Magnolia Ave. in Fort Worth’s bustling Near Southside district.
After shadowing some of the top names in barbecue, including the owners of Franklin Barbecue and La Barbecue and hosting MEATClub pop-up dinners in their home, Travis and Emma Heim took a leap of faith by quitting their jobs, leasing a trailer, and opening Heim Craft Barbecue in February. The couple quickly developed a devoted following, receiving high acclaim for their signature Texas-style barbecue.
Heim’s new location will be open for lunch and dinner and will allow for expanded offerings to an already enthusiastic audience of barbecue lovers. Continue reading

18th & Vine BBQ, an upscale Kansas City barbeque, full-service restaurant and bar, will open to the public on Tuesday, October 6th at 4100 Maple Avenue in Dallas across from Crow Holdings’ Old Parkland business offices.
Husband and wife team Matt and Kimi Dallman (original creators of the concept), in partnership with chef Scott Gottlich, have developed a unique menu in a comfortable yet casually chic environment designed by Brooke Roberson Interiors with build out by Mitchell Garman Architects. “Traditional Kansas City BBQ will always be a part of the menu options for those interested in a pure barbeque experience. However, the collaboration between myself and Scott gives us the opportunity to combine talents and knowledge of a classically trained chef with a self-taught pitmaster to push the boundaries of what can be accomplished with smoke and other barbeque techniques,” explains Dallman.

It’s easier than ever to fake your way through a summertime cookout. You’ve heard about the test tube burger; you had to, it cost $33,000. Meanwhile, sales of alternative meat products, like faux hot dogs, continue to rise (to more than $550 million last year). The one cookout staple that doesn’t easily lend itself to veganism is ribs. So, before someone comes up with a test tube version, let’s shout out epic pork and beef ribs around the country.
Texas star chef Tim Love, whose restaurants include the Lonesome Dove Western Bistro and Love Shack, happens to be a ribs expert. He kindly provided a list of his favorite ribs spots—both pork and beef. Believe it or not, he’s got his eyes wide open enough to find a go-to place in Toronto. Continue reading
