In the times I’ve eaten “hole in the wall” food, why is it that Gas Station restaurants tend to serve good food? Seems to go against nature to me. Pearl Street Station is a Gas Station that’s just one of those restaurants. It’s currently situated in the cozy town square of an ever growing Granbury Texas.

In mine and my husbands families, every time there is a birthday, we get together for a big dinner. It’s nice because we get to see each other and it helps us stay connected to what everyone has going on in their lives. My birthday is the last one of the year to celebrate for all the families and my husbands is the first of the year that we all celebrate.
I know I know, we’ve been eating a lot of Dallas food lately, but this one was a surprise birthday gathering for my sister. After tasting the food I deem it worthy of the hour long trip it takes us Fort Worthians to get there lol!
Almost every year I go to the State Fair of Texas. As soon as I walk through those “pearly gates” I beeline straight for a shack selling turkey legs. There is something about an oversized drumstick of meat that puts an extra pep in my step. I will walk around satisfied with that juicy meat for hours hesitant to share with my own hubby for fear of him taking too big a bite. The only unfortunate thing is that’s the ONLY time I can get a REALLY great turkey leg……..until now!!!!
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of my brother and sister-in-laws new restaurant Tasty’s BBQ and Turkey Leg Connection.
I’ve had one of these turkey legs before and let me tell you, I think these taste better than the State Fairs, AND now I can get them year round. Continue reading “Tasty’s Is In The House!”
One of my first introductions to Jamaican style flavors was a great spot over in Dallas called Elaine’s Kitchen. They had everything from fall off the bone ox tail, curry goat, amazing jerk chicken…you name it they had it. The only small problem I had was this place was it being in Dallas. I’m a Fortworthian and I am LAYYY-Z. Like when it comes to going anywhere, if I can’t find it locally, chances are I’m just not going lol!
A couple of weeks ago, I was hunting trying to find a spot for me and a friend to meet up for lunch. After searching on Yelp, I see Angie’s Bikkles pop up. What caught my attention was all the wonderful reviews people had left online. My mind was made up, I was going to need to try this spot out! Continue reading “Good Eats: Angie’s Bikkles”
On a heated day in Texas it gets ridiculous hot! Like the type of heat that makes you angry to go outside. But there is a silver lining in all of this that makes going outdoors totally worth it. Continue reading “When You Can’t Beat The Heat…Melt!”
Brewed has easily become a favorite for our little family and pretty much anyone who comes to visit us. “Have you been to Brewed?” is asked at least monthly by one of us to someone we know. It does very much so live up to its nickname.
For months we obsessed over Brewed. I’m quite sure in one week I had visited 3 days back to back with zero shame! They have a great menu with plenty of variety ranging from burgers to risotto. And they are also one of the few restaurants that believe in duck fat (all day everyday if I could). One of my favorites on the menu is The Ricotta Fritters with Carmel Apple Sauce. Do not share this one, I am warning you! Just order your own and enjoy.
Pictured above is another great thing that Brewed has to offer…coffee and tea. I am not a super connoisseur BUT when it comes to exactly Chai Tea Lattes, I get particular. Perfectly balanced, spicy, and hot….all I can say is, it was #Loveatfirstlatte.
Have you been to Magnolia Avenue in Fort Worth? It houses some of the best local spots for foodies in the area. One of our newer favorite frequented spots is a place called Fixture. It’s located Near Southside and has a kick back vibe that is inviting to all. Continue reading “Good Eats: Fixture on Magnolia Ave.”
Nothing like a post church brunch stop at Bird Cafe. Located in Sundance Square, Bird Cafe has one of the more unique styles of brunch which is heavily appreciated! Here my husband can be seen pouring syrup over his Waffle Carne Asada: Skirt steak, peppers, onions and brie. Continue reading “Good Eats: Bird Cafe Sundance Square”
