If Noodles @ BTH strikes visitors as welcoming and familiar, the reason may be that the Vietnamese restaurant?s owners share more than a dedication to fine boba teas?all three of them are sisters. They have merged steamy Vietnamese dishes with milky teas in a casual, laid-back setting. Noodles @ BTH opened in 2013 as a spinoff of the original Fort Worth location, which opened in 2007, serving mostly the same menu with a focus on convenience and walk-up ordering.
Bowls of the restaurant?s signature pho?a Vietnamese noodle soup?line tables alongside spring rolls filled with charbroiled chicken. Piles of rice share plates with marinated grilled pork, beef, and spicy lemongrass chicken, straws fish for treasure in boba teas, whose watermelon, papaya, and green-jasmine-flavored waters brim with chewy pearls of tapioca.
Ted E's Burgers & More's cooks load more than 19 burgers, signature sandwiches, and salads with fresh ingredients. Guests can indulge in housemade buttermilk biscuits during breakfasts on the weekends, or hand-spun shakes in creative flavors such as cobbler, mint chocolate chip, and deserts like homemade banana pudding, strawberry shortcake, and homemade cobbler.
Blake Buchanan opened the first Bahama Buck's in the summer of 1991?a tropical-themed hut that served shaved ice amidst the sweltering Texas heat. Although his business has now expanded to 30 locations (and counting) throughout Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada, each shop embraces the same island atmosphere: palm trees stand proudly next to tiki torches, bamboo trim lines the walls, and a smoke monster floats through the parking lot every day at noon.
Behind the counter, employees drizzle tropical flavors?from banana to watermelon and coconut?into cups piled high with shaved ice, cooling down overheated patrons. Anyone who forgot their brain-freeze medication can opt for a helping of Island House Coffee, lemonade, or Paradise Fruit?a blend of island fruits topped with chocolate, caramel, and whipped cream.

With its variety of deli-style sandwiches, crisp salads, and artisan pizzas, Four Star Caf? seems to have something for everyone. Sandwiches, such as the popular California club, host Boars' Head meats and cheese, and housemade dressings, such as tangy lemon olive-oil vinaigrette and garlic caesar, top fresh salads. Four Star's thin-crust personal pizzas tempt taste buds with toppings such as housemade tomato sauce, feta cheese, and grilled chicken.
Moe's Cafe prepares a far-reaching menu of classic home cooking and diner cuisine. Rib eye, new york strip, and top sirloin form the core of the restaurant's entree curriculum, and chicken-fried steaks prove there are better things to fry than makeshift electrical tape on a suspect outlet. Bacon cheeseburgers carry swiss or american cheeses, and tex-mex omelets bring in chili, jalapeños, onions, and cheese. Meanwhile, banana splits present a delicious way to learn short division, and hot-fudge-cake sundaes tutor tongues in the math of chocolate.
