I went to Italian Inn thinking that it would be romantic, as it was voted most romantic by FW Weekly readers. Apparently, I have a different view on romantic atmosphere, because the individual high-walled booths that were covered in graffiti were not exactly becoming. The service was good, but once the food arrived, I was in for another disappointment. I ordered alfredo, which is generally pretty tough to do badly, but it was very sweet and just did not taste good. My fiance got lasagna, which he wasn't very fond of either. The prices were way too high, and overall it wasn't a good experience.
I truly do not like Cafe Pulidos. I feel like the food is below average. It lacks in taste, creativity and authenticity. It almost feels like eating Taco Cabana or something of the like. That being said, my father simply loves it. So maybe it's just not for everyone.
I love yogi's. This is location is not open for dinner, but the one on Bryant Irvin is. I absolutely love the wide variety of bagels and cream cheese they have, as well as all the choices of different types and flavors of coffee. You can get things from the espresso bar, as well as really great tex-mex, other breakfast foods, sandwiches, burgers, quesadillas and desserts. Everything really is great, and the crowds at breakfast and lunch show as much.
My fiance loves to go to Omahas and look around. He bought a machete last month, and has his eye on a few different bayonets. You can find all types of clothes and jackets, as well as really decent peacoats. I buy a stack of their plan army issue tshirts because they're a great fit and nice color. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Prices are good. There are a lot of military memorabilia and things of that nature.
If you're in Fort Worth and are wanting to go to eat breakfast food, forget IHop and Denny's, Ol' South is open 24 hours, and serves absolutely AMAZING pancakes and other breakfast items, as well as general home style cooking. Their buttermilk pancakes, hashbrowns and biscuits are to die for. They have a lot of different pancake and waffle variations. This place is very reasonably priced, and so delicious. Just make sure you get there early on the weekends, or you will be standing in line for awhile to be seated.
This is definitely a good place to get delicious tacos or burritos with just about any meat/bean filling. Very tasty, quick service, and friendly owners.
I must say, the thing that turns me off most about Original Mexican Cafe is the atmosphere. It's slightly cafeteria like, very bright and impersonal...I just don't like it. But the food is pretty good, and their margaritas are decent. I wouldn't say it's the best food in town, but if you feel like some satisfying tex-mex it's an option.
I love Russell Feed. They carry the Innova brand as well as Innova Evo, which I buy and can hardly find anywhere. The location on 377 in Benbrook does not carry Evo, but does carry regular Innova. They also have precut femur bones which my dogs LOVE, as well as a lot of other cut bones, and treats. There is a wide variety of dog, cat, bird, and other types of food as well. They will occasionally hold low cost clinics there for your pets which is extremely valuable.
This little taqueria is amazing. My boss eats here at least twice a week, and always gets a chicken taco and a beef taco. He swears by them. Their bean burritos are really really good. Everything here is authentic and delicious.
My fiance convinced me to go to Edelweiss one evening, after much trepidation on my part. I had never really eaten German cuisine, and wasn't sure I was going to like it. We ordered a platter of many different items, and there was not one thing that I disliked. It was all very very good. They have a really great beer selection, and live polka music. It was fun to watch everyone dance around and have fun while we ate. After dinner we got the apple streusel, and I cannot relay fully how amazing it was. Very unique and delicious!
