We spent some time visiting some of the Trinity Groves hot spots this weekend including the new Sugar Skull Cafe. This is a fast casual restaurant that rests at the end of the East aisle in the front of the complex next to the very popular Resto Gastro Bistro. Sugar Skull offers a nice line up of tacos, breakfast items, and sides such as fundido, elotes and churros. Continue reading

In that ever vigilant search for the perfect taco, gordita or torta, we stumbled across a gem that will have you excited. Brush up on your Spanish before making an entrance, it could prove vital. Regardless, the employees at Torteria Insurgentes located at 3701 W Northwest Highway near Bachman Lake will have plenty to offer starting with breakfast at 8am, and on into the evening as they close at 10pm.

Off the beaten path and sometimes hard to see the signage, Melis is tucked away off Vickery Blvd and there you will find some of the best tacos in the Fort. Ok, they could well be THE BEST tacos in the Fort. Locals know about Melis but it’s still kind of a secret go-to spot when you have a craving for some real Mexican tacos al pastor. Open from 6am until 10pm every day, you can pretty much get your fix whenever you need it. Continue reading
Located across from the Trinity River on White Settlement road sits a little place that serves up big flavors. Thurber Mingus has been open for roughly 2 months now and starting to find its place. They strive to use only local and Texas sourced products including a good selection of beer from most, if not all, of the local breweries. You will also find plenty of local beers and spirits used at the bar. All mixes and syrups are created in house.
Inside is laid back with a good sized bar. Outside has a very nice two level patio area and a garden area with picnic tables and chairs all made from reclaimed pallet wood and stage at the end of the garden for live music. The outdoor space is spacious and comfortable. Continue reading
Fort Worth’s Revolver Taco, considered one of the best tacos in that area, will be shuttering and looking for a new location very soon. The dispute is over the building which has previously been leased. Revolver Taco was offered the opportunity to purchase the building, but instead declined. We have the message below that was released just moments ago on Facebook: Continue reading
With just weeks under their belt, the owners of the newly opened Quesa is enjoying a good crowd from the neighborhood at their 3900 Cedar Springs location in Dallas. Actually the full name is Quesa: Mexican Street Food, and that is as about an accurate description as you will find. Owned by Patricia and Francisco Cabrera, both new to the restaurant world, moved to the States five years ago. Patricia’s sister owns Taco Stop on Irving Blvd just south of the Design District. The recipes used at Quesa are actually old family guard. Continue reading
I have been checking in at Scotch and Sausage as of late and enjoy how chef Joey Allette has kicked up the menu with his fresh take, and of course always into a good scotch or whiskey. But as we reported a few weeks past, the front of Scotch and Sausage has been converted into S&S Tequileria, preparing some tasty tacos and serving up, of course heady tequila cocktails. The cocktails were of particular interest due to their unusual flavor combinations, and lack of that cloying sweetness that so many margaritas seem to take on. These are instead smooth, creamy and extremely well balanced. To find out more we went to the source, barmen Jesse Powell.
Before working at Scotch and Sausage, and Powell has been with the restaurant from the very beginning, he was working at an Addison sports bar. Prior to working in Dallas he had been in Wichita Falls. We chatted up Powell to find out more of his background and the thought behind some of these delicious drinks he is now serving up at S&S.
