A few weeks back I proposed I should go forth into the city and take on a few restaurants that one reading craveDFW on a regular basis not deem as craveable. I solicited a list of what soon became a dare with those commenting on Facebook. I am sometimes referred to as food snobbish, and nothing could be further than the truth. As long time readers are aware we will write about things we love, and leave the rest of the chaff for those that prefer writing more hateful tomes.

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
