FORT W OR T Fort Worth 2016 Best of out on the patio. 801 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth, 76104, 817.945.1545, Staff Pick: (tie) McKinley’s Fine Bakery & Cafe 1616 S. University Drive, Fort Worth, 76107, 817.332.3242, The Bloody Mary at Chef Point Cafe H E , T XA S MAGAZI NE BBQ Reader Pick: Heim Barbe-cue Travis and Emma Heim, and new partners Will Churchill and Corrie Watson, have shut down the food truck and are working furiously to launch Heims’ first brick-and-mortar location on West Magnolia. The Southside can’t wait to get its first serving of Bacon Burnt Ends. 1109 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth, 76104, 817.882.6970, Staff Pick: Off the Bone BBQ Off the Bone’s barbecue is so good, Big D barbecue so questionable, this old Forest Hill restaurant made No. 1 in a D Magazine ranking of best Dallas barbecue. Owners Ed-die and Marilyn Brown work together. Eddie Brown takes care of the meats, and Marilyn Brown tends to the baking and desserts, offering traditional southern cakes, pies and cob-bler. “Our customers say you don’t need no teeth to eat our meat,” Eddie Brown says. 5144 Mansfield Highway, Forest Hill, 76119, 817.563.7000, BEER SELECTION Reader Pick: Flying Saucer Fort Worth The Saucer continues to draw beer nuts, especially with its move into the former 8.0 space, with the expansive covered patio. Bike or Uber downtown and sit for awhile. 111 E. 3rd St., Fort Worth, 76102, 817.336.7470, Staff Pick: Chimera Brew-ing Co. Chimera – nee Zio Carlo’s – has a nice beer menu, including its own beers, which it took awhile to begin producing after opening several years ago. But we just like the joint, with its big bar and table area, darts, and outdoor patio. You get a discount if you ride in on your bike. And Chimera has the city’s best underrated pizza. 1001 W. Magnolia Ave., Fort Worth, 76104, 817.923.8000, BLOODY MARY Reader Pick: Del Frisco’s Grille Sundance Square Plaza, 154 E. 3rd St., Fort Worth, 76102, 817.887.9900, Staff Pick: Chef Point Café Years later, the Chef Point story is almost the stuff of urban leg-end, except the story is true. Its owners wanted to open a res-taurant, but they couldn’t get a loan for one. They could get a loan for a gasoline station, so they opened a Conoco station and then opened a fine restau-rant in it in 2003. Customers waiting to get into the restau-rant line up over 12-packs of Diet Coke and bubble gum. Owners Paula Merrell and Franson Nwaeze are preparing to take their show on the road, quietly purchasing a site on Oakhurst Scenic Drive in the Riverside area. Merrell says the two aren’t ready to share their plans, but adds, “the Scenic Bluff area is a beautiful area, close to downtown and ripe for development. We hope to be in the center of all this energy.” The Bloody Mary is equally as legendary, named by the Huff-ington Post as one of “The 12 Craziest & Best Bloody Mary’s in America.” The $25 drink is garnished with chicken, shrimp, waffle fries, bacon, jalapeños and a beef slider, plus it comes with your choice of 16-ounce domestic beer. 5901 Watauga Road, Watauga, 76148, 817.656.0080, 76 ~ June 2016
