So Many Ways to Celebrate National Sandwich Day in Dallas

by Steven Doyle

There is little to make a sandwich wonderful other than  fantastic bread, well thought out seasonings and spreads, and a filling that should be unsurpassed. When deciding a list of our favorites, it seemed a more daunting task than originally thought. So much more came to mind as the list was settled.

With all the heartache of selecting which can stand alone as the very best, we humbly submit in no particular order sandwiches that we enjoy. Tell us your favorites and we will run out today and sample one.  The big day is November 3rd, but we wanted you to try a few for lunch starting today. Continue reading

2019 Crave Grill Guide and Reviews

by Steven Doyle

Grilling season is in full swing and it is time you thought about tossing out the old rusty model you have been clinging to for so many years. We have a little guidance in selecting a new model that will not only impress your neighbors, but ease you through many summers ahead. Unlike our pal Hank Hill, we prefer using real charcoal for a better tasting product.

When using charcoal, we recommend natural lump charcoal and not briquettes which can be laced with undesirable ingredients.

A Savory Slice of History at Fuel City

by Steven Doyle

The Cockrell family moved to the Dallas area in 1847 and purchased the part of John Neely Bryan’s homestead that included the Dallas town site and Trinity River ferry. Eventually the family opened a sawmill, lumberyard, gristmill and freighting business. The land they owned spread far on the rolling banks of the Trinity making up the family’s ranch, however, now much of that legend has been forgotten.

Today you may once again spot cattle roaming proudly where they once grazed, but now a skyline of concrete and steel are the backdrop where once only windmills and oil pumps could be seen.   Continue reading

by Steven Doyle

Growing up in Dallas it would be difficult to avoid the enchilada. The Tex-Mex beauties delicately filled, rolled and sauced for your dining pleasure. And what great memories most Texans have as children growing up noshing on the humble enchilada each Wednesday in our public schools, the same day that El Fenix  offers their inexpensive deal on enchiladas.
