It's the end of the school year, the start of summer, and the perfect time to start thinking road trip. But before you load up on Red Vines and jerky, it's worth a look at the best of our latest news in local food.
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: Agave Tex-Mex, one of the most recent entries into the pantheon of half-Tex, half-Mex eateries, gets the Dish treatment from Dave.
- Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brenner checks out Masaryk Modern Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Lounge, while contributor Kim Pierce finds Con Fusion wanting.
