So long, Mr. Max

Mr. Max, that wonderfully authentic dive in Irving, has closed.

Blue Ginger (Malaysian) is back

How does Blue Ginger compare to Secret Recipe in Carrollton?

Brazilian restaurants in the area

Thanks for the rec. I'll write back once I've had a chance to try either Vila Brazil or BB.

Brazilian restaurants in the area

I've been to TDB and Rafain... both were enjoyable. Thinking of trying Vila Brazil in Irving; has anyone been there? I'm sure the ambiance won't compare to the former two, but it's really about the food for me. How is it there? Are there others worth trying that aren't in the break-the-bank category?

Good Foodie Restaurant near the Airport

+1 Mr Max ... the curry noodles are amazing! Quite a popular joint with Japanese business visitors.

DFW - Breakfast Spots

Second the Next recommendation. *Fantastic* Sunday brunch.

KC breakfast joints

I'm looking for a good breakfast recommendation that opens around 08:00A on weekdays... preferably in KC MO. Chez Elle looks fantastic, but isn't open until 11:00.

Dude, Sweet Chocolate

Just went to Avoca today and tried D, SC's blue cheese truffle. Wow! Distinctive flavor is absolutely right... would've paired better with a nice glass or red instead of the macchiato I had.

Billadelphia's

Yes, they were inside a Shell station on Holiday Ln at Mid-Cities Blvd. Glad they opted to remain in NE Tarrant :-)

Colleyville Eats

I completely agree. Went there for Sunday brunch and had a wonderful experience. The place has a more modern, contemporary style to it than its predecessor (Peter's Pizza).

Look forward to returning there!

Suggestions for authentic Chinese restaurant within driving distance of Fort Worth?

In the past, I've found PH's food to be heavy on the sauce and very salty (but I last ate there in mid 2010). Wonder if they've changed since then.

Recs between Tulsa and St. Louis on I-44?

We ultimately decided to stop in Joplin... one, to see the condition of the town and two, to try Fred and Reds. Pardon the cliché, but the pictures on CNN really do no justice. Just unbelievable destruction.

Fred and Reds is still standing... a U-shaped counter from back in the day... serving greasy chili either plain or with spaghetti. Didn't find the food especially flavorful, but thought it was worth the stop just for the small-town diner experience.

Stopped at Baker's Fish House in Porter, OK on the return trip. Didn't think the catfish was anything special (I've definitely had better here in DFW), but the thinly fried onion rings were delicious.

Biladelphia closed?

As I understand, the Bedford location closed to make room for the Hwy 183 expansion. They're still scouting a new location, correct?

In any case, there's another Billadelphia's in NRH inside a Shell station at the corner of Mid-Cities Blvd and Holiday Ln.

Recs between Tulsa and St. Louis on I-44?

Looked in to your throwed rolls rec (Lambert's Cafe)... see that there's a location in Ozark, just south of Springfield. Have you been there?

Recs between Tulsa and St. Louis on I-44?

Actually, I'll be driving to STL from Dallas along US 75/69, which joins I-44 east of Tulsa. Don't mind driving within 5 or so mi of either hwy for a good rec (most interested in BBQ or country-style cooking, but open to any recs).

Thanks!

24 Hours to (and in) Ft. Worth

Agreed. If you can do upscale, try Lanny's (near the museums and cultural district) and/or Ellerbe (near the hospital district, south of downtown).

Foodie Destinations between DFW and Nashville?

Definitely agree with the recommendations for Gus's, Cozy Corner, and Central BBQ in Memphis.

How is Chic from Barcelona?

Am considering meeting some friends here for dinner. Is their rotisserie chicken as good as they claim? How are the other menu items?

Bonnell's

Bonnell's is one of my FW faves, but I've only been there for lunch. Most recently, I had the Southwestern Smoked Chicken Stack, which was fantastic. I'm heading back this weekend to try the dinner menu for the first time.

Shepherd's Pie recommendations in DFW

In times past, I've been to the Tipperary Inn in Dallas and had a decent shepherd's pie there. Now that they're (sadly) closed, does anyone have recommendations in Dallas, FW, or the surrounding community?

2-3 hour layover DFW Airport

I second the margaritas at Esparza's... some of the best in Tarrant County. For nearby Italian, I've read good things about Saviano's in Euless. Search for them on Chowhound or Google and read the reviews.

The BEST steak in or around Arlington/Dallas...???

Arlington has no place that anyone would rave about for the classic steakhouse experience. Recommend Del Frisco's in downtown Fort Worth... consistently ranked as the top steakhouse in Tarrant County.

If you're intent on going to Dallas, however, Del Frisco's has another location in Addison as does Chamberlain's, both of which are excellent but are further away from Cowboy Stadium than Fort Worth (and completely inaccessible by public transit).

You may wish to follow CocoaNut's suggestions and take a cab to the Trinity Rail Express, which can take you to Fort Worth... or take a cab directly to Fort Worth.
