Thread: Fort Worth is exploding

  1. #101
    i stopped off at Salsa Limon (the taco stand I posted about "the best tacos in FW" thread) Friday night after the Ranger game. the barbacoa, pork and el capitan made the loss a bit more manageable. $#@!in a those tacos kick ass.

    Beef - If you haven't heard about Friends of the River Party on the Plaza, its tonight at Montgomery Plaza. You don't have to run, you can pay the entrance fee and eat and drink all you want.

    yeah, those tacos dominate. next time get the green salsa. it's pretty spicy but has great flavor. they also have a kick ass avacado-ish salsa/sauce that is good. then again, i think they don't need much sauce since the meat is so good. i definitely want this place to make it but i don't think they are going to have any issues. they better start looking into a retail spot and fuzzy's needs to watch their cornhole.

    jt, the 7th/university street area is going ape $#@! right now with bars/restaurants (hence this thread). not sure all of them are going to make it but the good ones will make a killing.

    Yep, in the same 7th area as Chuy's & everything else.

  • #115
    In and Out is going right where that Wendy's is across from W7th development. It looks so out of place it's not even funny. Fuzzy's is going to be fine but if Salsa Limon finds good retail space around there they will dominate late night dining from the TCU students. I also heard tacoheads is good but I haven't tried it.

    Tacoheads is very solid and the green sauce is legit.

    I too love Ft Worth. I haven't had much of a chance to see the place b/c we are always busy visiting relatives when we are in town. We did take some time in August to visit the Science museum and the old firehouse. So much more for the kids to see, so I am hoping to take a mini-vacation there at some point this year.

    I like Round Rock a lot but I would move back to Ft Worth, fo sho.


    For one, youth soccer in the metroplex is 10x the Austin area.

    I used to spend a decent amount of time at the Blarney Stone ~1992-1995 while a buddy of mine was going to TCU; I'd go out to visit a handful of times a year. I really liked Ft. Worth, but haven't been back there since the mid 90s.

    We'll be lucky to get the new one open by the end of the calendar year, but it's possible. I'll get a specific street address up here soon. It's a few blocks off the stockyard area. Near a brand new apt/condo/mixed-use project. Sorta similar to the area we settled on in Dallas, only a bit closer to downtown. Will likely be bigger than Austin but smaller than Dallas.

    I've always liked Fort Worth. Probably my second favorite large city in Texas. Great arts scene as well. And sounds like dining is going up a notch all the way around. Not sure about the "talent" level, only been there when I was too young to appreciate it or after I was married.

    Ate at Ellerbe on Magnolia over the weekend. Rabbit terrine, duck confit, lamb, okra, some sort of gingerbread dessert. It was all excellent. Great date spot.

    checked out The Durty Crow fri night. decent place from the owners of Durty Murphy's downtown. was pretty packed since it just opened and hard to get a drink but I like the open windows

    my new favorite place is capitol bar. so much better since they added the outdoor patio. had a great time sat night with some out of town friends. some tcu dudes bought 100 shots to celebrate their victory and passed em out to everyone,

    they need to get some good bands coming through that place though, love the stage set up

    looks like there are a couple more bars opening up next door to it as well

    I have not been to Durty Crow yet, but I am hearing some mixed reviews on the place. I really need to get back to spending time at Capitol Bar.

  • #125
    i've only been to capital bar a few times but it's legit. they do have a great venue for some bands and the one playing when i was there was a standard cover band but maybe they aren't trying to do more than that. still, the buildout there is nice and it's pretty unique for the area.

    Good night of music in Fort Worth if anybody is going out.

    I am heading to Lola's at 7pm to see Scott Copeland and then going to Willie's Ice House in the Stockyards to see my friend Whitnye from 9pm - 12pm. I also would like to get over to the Pour House tonight as well to see 6th Market Blvd. I am sure I will hit the Rooster and Taco Heads to eat before yellow cab takes me home.

    6th Market is really good. I did not stay for much of their show as I headed off to see my friend play down in the Stockyards. I really wish they would play around this area more. The Rooster is having a big party on Saturday with Velvet Love Box on stage later in the night.

    I hit Bailey's (drinks), Tillman's (dinner), and Fred's (drink and music) last night for a date. Pretty solid and the food at Tillmans was spot on again.

    Don't know if you ever venture down Camp Bowie south of 30 but if so...don't waste your time with Iguana's. That's the new place that just opened up in the old All-Stars Sports Bar spot (just past Ridglea Theater.

    They dress their bartenders/waitstaff up in a hot little getup (short skirts, busty tops, etc) but the place is fail. It had about a dozen Tapout mouthbreathers in there the night I checked it out. And a DJ clumsily blasting his way through every club song in the book. I don't know, maybe its just me, but it feels pretty stupid whenever a "sports bar" tries to pull off the nightclub thing from within the confines of a shopping center.

    Anyone been to that Mexican joint that ended up in the Texas Monthly list? Was surprised that it wasn't in Northside -- apparently this place is way out west by Camp Bowie and 820.

    ^^^ Damn, didn't know that place was Iguana's now. That's about the fourth thing it's been recently, & sounds like it will fail too.


    Are you talking about Rivera's? They catered my sister's wedding, but it's tough to judge a restaurant by something like that. However, it was pretty average in that regard...

    TCU students have it good between Fuzzy's, Dutch's, Buffalo Bros, Mama's Pizza, and the Oui Lounge being a block away.

    i've posted this several times, but across the street from Fuzzy's there's a trailer that serves tacos called Salsa Limon. if you eat there, you will never eat at fuzzy's ever again unless you just want to stare at tcu chicks which is cool. the tacos there absolutely dominate. my wife really wanted breakfast tacos the other morning and there's a joint on Vickery in between Hulen and University that is tremendous (not sure of the name). if you are starting from Hulen and take Vickery to University it's on the left hand side maybe around Calmont?

    spy, on brownstone i heard it is average at best and not worth it considering the other options in the area. if you had a different experience, please speak up.

    the construction Hulen bridge in between Central Market and Bellaire is a HUGE beatdown. it takes damn near 10 minutes to get past the bridge only being one lane because all the chicken $#@! $#@!s that cut to the front of the line knowing good and damn well you have to merge into the left lane.

    this is a great thread. it's cool to hear the collective group thought on restaurants.

    Taqueria Melis.

    When I first moved here in 2001 from Austin, I was determined to find decent breakfast tacos -- it was a task harder than I ever imagined. Fortunately, I found Taqueria Melis. When I heard the chickens back behind the house, and the girl at the front who didn't habla much of the ingles, I knew this place was going to be epic -- either epic great or an epic disaster.

    It's awesome to pull up there on a Saturday morning. You'll have day laborers and some dude in a Mercedes SL500 all waiting around the little window for awesome tacos y tortas. The salsa verde is the truth. Great food brings us all together.

    I haven't been there in a while. I've been spending my Saturday mornings at Old Neighborhood Grill. This weekend I'll mix it up and pay another visit to Taqueria Melis.

    Where exactly is this Salsa Limon? Is it in the 7/11 parking lot or over by the Moon/the bookstore? I drive by there all the time but I can't picture where this trailer is.

    Sounds like Salsa Limon is the spot I have been looking for. I was pretty disappointed in the NYE parties in the FW area, so I decided to spend NYE out at a buddies ranch. I have tried to go to Brownstone once, but they where closed for a private event. I have heard the same thing about it being very average.

    I have been to Magnolia Motor Lounge twice and the food is okay, but want really turned me off was the atmosphere and the bartenders. One guy asked where I watched the game and I said the, "Rooster" and he just started dogging the Rooster and talking about how their place was so much better and what not. Little did he know that I love the Rooster and thought he was way out of line to be talking about another place like that.

    This week is my b-day celebration week and it looks something like this (of course all subject to change)

    Wednesday - Happy Hour at Fred's (Austin Allsup on stage), Lola's (Scott Copeland on stage), Rooster to finish

    Thursday - TCU area (dinner at Ol Rips or Mellow Mushroom and then Rock Bottom, Oui, Ardvark, etc)

    Friday - Cotton Bowl (TBA), West 7th St. (Rooster, Pour House, Poag, Crow, etc)

    Saturday - Freds at 3pm (Scott Copeland on stage), Stockyards (H3 for dinner, Basement Bar - Broads and Panties burlesque show, Ely)

    Sunday - Fred's for Brunch (Will Hobbs on stage)

    I bet I know exactly who did that. I know a dude, friend of a friend, who works the bar at MML. When they first opened, he was always trying to get me to go in there. I went a couple of times because I want to help out, and try out, new places but I never really enjoyed my time there. However, I really like the Rooster. That's my place.

    I got sick of going into MML because the people there, knowing I like the Rooster, were always trying to show me how THIS or THAT is waaaaayyyy better. F that. If you have a good thing going, you don't have to run down other places.

    Spot on. It really turned me off on the place.

    yeah, it's right off the street. it's hard to catch unless you are looking for it. it faces Berry and is literally right across the street from Fuzzy's, Ardvark, etc. they are only open from something like 11am-3am so they don't do breakfast tacos. that said, they aren't technologically in the dark since they take debit cards and you can call/text in orders.

    the number is 817 921 4435. TornACL and beef, do me a favor and give it a shot. post with details. if you are unhappy and want to call me a $#@!sucker, i will accept although you may want to do that for just cause.

    the el capitan is the goods and so is the barbacoa. if you like spicy sauces/salsa, they've got it. the chorizo is pretty good, but i think the other two i mentioned are a bit better. you can get burritos and nachos but i've only gone with the tacos. you will be out of there and spend about $4-$6 depending on what you get.

    god bless you, that's it. i think you will find salsa limon to be on par with melis except they speak a bit better english due to the college student customer base. either way, the ingredients are fresh and you can't beat the price.

    Are they out there on Saturday? If so I've got a nice little Saturday planned.

    Taqueria Melis for breakfast tacos
    Salsa Limon for lunch tacos
    Wild Rooster for drunken tacos during NFL playoffs.

    You're talking about Salsa Fuego - this place is legit. service is a little slow at times.

    I have changed my plan a little bit on Saturday is I am starting at the Rooster at 2:30pm for the Texas vs. UConn Basketball game and then slide over to Fred's for Scott Copeland after that. Any of yall $#@!s want to meet me up there for the Texas game?
