black-forestby Steven Doyle

For the uninitiated, there is something going on at The Swiss Pastry Shop  in Fort Worth you might want to know about. They make this insanely good Black Forest Cake that is the mainstay of the business. Entire countries would fall should they stop making this thing. It is so good that they build them in a myriad of sizes from a slice to six steps up to a full sheet pan full of Black Forest goodness.    Continue reading

Call it Crockett Row, call it West 7th, call it what you will. With the constant changes around this area of Fort Worth it’s nice to find something that has remained pretty much the same for four decades. Fred’s Texas Cafe has been at the same location on Currie Street for 40 years.   Just a little holdout shack squeezed in among the glitz and noise of bars and restaurants geared towards the younger set, Fred’s caters to everyone. Young, old, city and country everyone comes to Fred’s for good food, good music and their “cold ass beer”. Continue reading

Burger of the Day: Half Pound Burger at Lee Harvey’s

leeharvey2by Steven Doyle

There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.

The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen  much smaller than your own at home. The food comes out quickly and perfect every time for a place with such adversity as this small workspace. But that is the only thing small about the bar. The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster.   Continue reading
