The Chicken That Makes The Coyotes Howl On The Ranch At Las Colinas

ranch5by Steven Doyle

The Ranch at Las Colinas is just that. It is like being invited to dinner at a giant hacienda, and all your friends are there. On a most recent visit I flipped out over the fried chicken, which is the most unusual and flavorful I have tasted ever. The fried chicken at Stampede is pretty remarkable, with its oozing honey pot center, but this is much different. The chicken is first smoked, then fried.

Fred’s Texas Cafe Announces New West Fort Worth Location Opening Spring 2022

Fred’s Texas Cafe announced today its plans for expansion into West Fort Worth with the opening of a NEW Fred’s Texas Cafe on 7101 Camp Bowie West in 2022. This exciting new opening will mark the closing of a chapter and the start of a new one as the restaurant’s flagship location at 915 Currie St. will close its doors on December 31, 2020 and relocate to the new, bigger space come early spring.

Purchased in 1978 by JD and Gari Chandler, the Currie St. burger joint has seen the city of Fort Worth change around it; the building itself has been in that location for almost 50 years (previously Ken’s). During the restaurant’s four decades of operation, the business has stayed family-owned and local through the partnership of long-time friends and co-owners Terry Chandler (JD and Gari’s Son) and Quincy Wallace. The business partners, chuckwagon cooks, and familiar faces to Fred’s regulars are excited for the opportunity to bring Texas’ best burgers and western cuisine to an area of town that hasn’t had a chance to experience Fred’s signature style of food.
