In the land of buffets we tend to stay clear, but there is one super hot spot you will wish to sample everything – and in abundance. BBQ can be difficult to monitor unless you have a steady stream of guests filing through, often waiting for the next slice of brisket to fall of onto the line, or a rack of ribs to be hacked into submission. North Main Barbecue stays very busy and for good reason, they have decent BBQ. Continue reading

We have written about the history of chili, and Dallas is definitely a large part of that. The original Tolbert’s downtown served some of the best chili that could be found on the planet. Also the original Chilis’, the chain that can be found just about anywhere, opened over 40 years ago by Larry Lavine at the now-defunct Greenville Avenue and Meadow location served fantastic chili back in the day, with a recipe inspired by the first chili cook-off in Terlingua.
One of our favorite’s comes from Graham Dodds and I am sure we will be tasting his new bowl of red at his new post as Exec chef at the Statler Hotel.

Texas has its own day to celebrate the almighty chicken fried steak and it is on October 26. The day was created by seventh-generation Texan and local entrepreneur, Jeffrey Yarbrough in 2010. Last year there was an addition of “Peace, Love, and Chicken Fried Steak” by Jimmy Baldwin as the day’s statewide anthem performed and filmed at Allgood Café .
Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day came about when Yarbrough realized one of Texas’ beloved food groups was not receiving the recognition it deserved. With the assistance of several other restaurateurs such as State Representative and Las Casas Restaurant (recently closed) owner Ralph Sheffield, Yarbrough was able to get the resolution signed on May 2, 2010 for Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day.
