From a menu featuring one-pound, build-your-own burritos to a series of colorful murals depicting the dish’s origin and ingredients, it’s clear that Bad Azz Burrito takes burritos very seriously. The eatery challenges customers to match their ardor with burrito challenges that offer spots on the shop's wall of fame for consuming 3–11 pounds of tortillas, meat, rice, and cheese. The open-minded chefs are also receptive to customers' burrito-filling suggestions, such as obscure combinations of meat or crushed candy corn.
When they opened Miguelito's Mexican Restaurant more than 15 years ago, Michael and Gabby Nevares poured their combined years of management expertise into an eatery focused on fun and flavor. Mexican and American favorites dot the menu, including fish or brisket tacos and queso flameado, a dish of jack cheese lit tableside to melt over shrimp, chorizo, or unpaid parking tickets. American-style chicken-fried steak contrasts with classic house-made tamales or lighter entrees of grilled tilapia with cilantro rice and plantains.
Though Michael passed away in 2004, his spirit lives on at Miguelito's. The man who has rubbed elbows with Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood would surely be proud to see the M-Lounge area, which opened in 2009. Lit by funky, jeweled chandeliers, the space features six flat-screen TVs, large leather couches, and is available for private parties and events. Behind the full tiki-style bar lined with wrought-iron chairs, bartenders mix signature margaritas and pour imported and domestic brews into glasses or adult water balloons. The restaurant is open seven days a week.
The sizzling sound of fajita platters carried through Fogata’s festive dining room is softened by the gentle babbling of three indoor waterfalls and live music on Thursday and Friday nights. As parties share margaritas and tasty Mexican dishes, a wall-size projector screen displays sports games or what may appear to be a giant talking burrito to especially hungry diners. A recipient of the Fort Worth Weekly's Critic's Choice award, Fogata's specialty queso is flambéed tableside to melt around beef, chorizo, or shrimp, and guacamole is also smashed tableside to ensure fresh, custom flavors.
