Since we are on a trompo taco kick we set sights for one of our favorite spots across from Bachman Lake to Bachman Tacos and Grill set inside the gas station at 3311 Northwest Highway. There you walk to the gas station’s counter to prepay for however many tacos or burritos you might want, then present your ticket to the cooks at the taco grill.
What you will taste is on of the better trompo tacos sliced straight from the spinning grilled meat. These are piping hot and spicy with insanely juicy slivers of pork. Add the tasty salsa verde, and a squirt of fresh lime for the perfect bite of taco goodness that scream “eat me”. We happen to know this is chef Kent and Tracy Rathbun favorite taco n Dallas, and can be spotted noshing on a few from time to time. Continue reading

We love our fried chicken, and have been seeking out the very best Dallas has to offer. We scoured the streets and found some with an ethnic twist, others are straight forward crispy fried and juicy.
We had to eliminate a few that didn’t qualify as traditional, such as Bon Mua’s fried Cornish hen, which is still worth making the drive to Carrollton. In making our list we were shocked at how many plates of fried chicken we had sampled over the past months. Col Sanders would have said he was too drunk to taste that chicken after just a few of these places.
