To be included in a future edition of What’s Eating Your Phone, send those photos to me at steven@cravedfw.com. A brief description and location would be super helpful. Here are this week’s selections:     Continue reading

Hunt For CFS: Lucky’s Cafe

Shuffling in and finding one of the few remaining seats at the bar, a popular spot for the regulars, you grab a menu and peruse knowing that you will order the chicken fried steak. But you scan the menu with the thought you may discover a new Texas favorite, but alas you do not. Nothing new has been invented in the past hundred years that might exceed the perfection of a slab of tasty beef pounded thick and hand breaded and deep fried. The craggy crisp layers are an exciting place for unctuous creamed gravy to lay rest in anticipation of your first bite. Continue reading

The Boiling Crab Wait Is Well Worth The Prize

We are still enjoying the seafood season as the crawfish continue to grow larger, and the crabs are ever so sweet. Boiling Crab in Dallas near Garland seems to always be busy with lines starting at least thirty minutes before opening, and on super nice days as much as an hour with guests toting lawn chairs and sipping mystery drinks as they eagerly await a mess of crawfish, a myriad of crabs, shrimp and even lobster steamed in a bag packed full of seasoning.

Here the phrase is “The Whole Shabang” which means all the spices in the house mixed with butter. This is the holy grail of boils in Dallas. Continue reading

Kent Rathbun Made a Special Pizza for the Holidays

Thanksgiving may be over, but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to stop eating turkey. In fact, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company would argue the opposite—and then they’d partner with one of Dallas’s best chefs to put some turkey on a pizza.

Created by Chef Kent Rathbun, the Wild Turkey Pizza is topped with One90 smoked turkey, gruyére cheese, Alfredo sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms, spinach and prosciutto, and it’s served with a side cranberry sauce. It tastes like a delicious holiday plate, but in this case, the plate is a pizza—and therefore better. Continue reading
