Is that this Fort Price’s finest chili? Plus, extra Turkey Day picks
Finest chili? J&J, M&O, Dutch’s
Hey, Bud! I noticed you wrote on Fb that J&J Oyster Bar now has the perfect chili. The place else?
J&J’s, 612 College Drive, has stepped up its cowboy menu recently with chili, fish and shrimp tacos, and even occasional specials akin to calf fries.
My different two favorites are M&O Station Grill, 200 Carroll St., and Dutch’s Hamburgers, 3009 S. College Drive. And naturally the legacy chili at century-old Carshon’s Deli, 3133 Cleburne Highway.
Olenjack, Lane to open Fort Price restaurant
Hey, Bud! I favored Brian Olenjack’s place in Arlington. Is there wherever like that now? The place is he?
—Frequent callers to 817-390-7538
For a pleasant Arlington lunch or dinner restaurant proper by the stadiums, I like Zack’s Bistro, a smaller Mercury Chophouse cousin at 900 E. Copeland Highway.
Olenjack, a former Reata chef, has a brand new gig with Joe Lane Catering in Aledo.
Lane has massive plans. He and Olenjack will open a “massive two-story grill and bar” subsequent yr in a Fort Price “landmark location,” he mentioned
However not the Reata area, Lane mentioned. Reata will transfer quickly to 500 Throckmorton St. when its lease runs out subsequent spring.
Heaven’s Gate, Jake & Dorothy’s for Thanksgiving residence cooking
Hey, Bud! Is Heaven’s Gate open for Thanksgiving this yr?
—Carol, Fort Price
Fort Price’s favourite old-time household buffet will begin serving its $19.95 lunch at 10:30 a.m.
No specifics, however anticipate turkey and dressing, roast pork, meat loaf, hen fried steak and the same old Heaven’s Gate menu of cheap residence cooking; 3820 N. Major St.
▪ One other Thanksgiving buffet: Winslow’s Wine Cafe, 4101 Camp Bowie Blvd. will serve an enormous $95/$29 unfold with turkey, prime rib, chorizo-spinach stuffed pork loin and baked ham on the carving station.
Search for salads, pastas and brunch dishes (and pizza by request).
▪ And for a rustic drive and a captivating small-town Thanksgiving, Jake & Dorothy’s Cafe in Stephenville will serve a $20.95 turkey, ham or chicken-fried steak dinner all day.
That’s with pumpkin pie or one other dessert. It’s the well-known restaurant’s seventy fifth Thanksgiving.
