    Dallas' Five Best Barbecued Pork Ribs

    For all we go on about brisket, the pork rib has a beauty all its own. Beloved in greater swathes of the country than brisket, it's nevertheless shunned across the Lone Star state as an not so worthy of barbecue. Well, if Kevin Spacey on House of Cards is constantly eating them, they're good enough ... More >>

    Pat Snuffer, Patriarch of the Snuffer's Burger Chain, Is Turning His Back on Burgers

    Two burger restaurants along Greenville Avenue have had dramatically different business experiences recently, while a new restaurant from a local burger legend hints at a possible (though probably unlikely) top in the Dallas burger market. A few weeks ago, Becks Prime announced that the Greenville ... More >>

    I'm a 30-Year-Old Texan, and Last Night I Went to Dairy Queen for the First Time

    I was born a not-Texan, but I moved here when I was 4 from Virginia. On one of my first trips to Dallas in the late 1980s, I napped under my dad's chair while he and my mom voraciously ate Tex-Mex at El Fenix. I was a Texan. And yet, I confess: My name is Nick Rallo, I was raised in Texas, and I'd ... More >>

    Dale Davenport, Man of Mystery? No, Mayor, He's Just a Car Wash Owner.

    Tuesday I talked to Mayor Mike Rawlings about the car wash on MLK Boulevard that I have written a lot about lately -- well, a lot about over the last eight years, as a matter of fact. It's the one the city recently threatened to take by eminent domain. We did settle one point. The mayor said he ha ... More >>

    Jury Tosses Arlington DUI Charge, Prompting Judge to Invoke O.J. Simpson

    For David Tran, October 29 was a very good day. He beat a drunk-driving rap he picked up in Arlington three years earlier, when he was 17 years old and blew a .095 into the Intoxilyzer -- just a shade over the .08 legal limit. The offense could be expunged from his record, and a young life could con ... More >>

    Midwesterners Take Heart: Maid-Rite is Now Open in Arlington

    So, the deal with Maid-Rite is it's really old (85ish) and their meat is loose. And apparently the funny naming homophones are simply attributed to the original founder's inability to spell -- not that I'm throwing stones, seeing how my own house is kind of glassy there. Maid-Rite is a Midwestern s ... More >>
