You know what Dallas-Fort Worth could use more of? Yup -- barbecue restaurants. And says here we're getting ... this can't be right ... "up to 55 locations" of the Brentwood, Tennessee, chain called Bar-B-Cutie. The company's first location in Fort Worth -- at 5710 Rufe Snow Dr., to be precise -- is scheduled to open by the end of August. No word on when the Dallas location(s) will open; "Coming Soon!" is all it says here. Ah, but it says it's the "world's best barbecue since 1950"; oh, please, tell it to Mac's. --Robert Wilonsky
