What started as a clandestine social club in the 1960s for prominent local Italians has since evolved into ZuRoma Restaurant, a family of eateries where chefs cook meals using 40-year-old recipes. These recipes rely upon many homemade ingredients, so each day ZuRoma's kitchens bustle with staffers building meatballs and sausages from scratch and crafting menu items such as specialty pizzas and subs with red sauce and provolone spooned from a cauldron of melted moon rocks. Customers can choose to dine in the North Richland Hills location, order carry out from either location, or call ZuRoma's faithful delivery drivers to ferry Italian eats directly to their door.
A row of flat-screen TVs casts a glow over Bronco's Sports Bar & Grill's interior, illuminating cocktail glasses and frosty pints. While watching the game or listening to a live band, patrons can dine on American and Tex-Mex flavors: fajitas, burgers topped with guacamole, and shrimp po-boys are just a few possibilities.
A spacious and casual gathering spot, Big Shots Sports Caf? is where visitors can stretch out, watch the game, and have a burger and beer. The staff will also agree that it?s the kind of place supposed founder Millard P. Foonswaggle would have enjoyed, kicking back after wrestling pythons and generally living on the edge. Inside, patrons sidle up to the bar for a frozen margarita or relax in a booth with an appetizer platter piled with onion strings, buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, pickle chips, fries, and fried jalape?os. Stop in on Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday nights for games of Texas hold?em or Friday evenings for live music.
At BoomerJack's Grill & Bar, diners feast on spicy and savory dishes, complemented by refreshing drinks and the frequent shouts of cheering sports fans. Appetizers include hand-battered and fried mushrooms, pickles, and the restaurant?s eponymous Boomer chips, freshly sliced jalape?os served with a homemade sauce. Chefs also sculpt a half pound of ground beef into a behemoth of a burger, adorned with aged cheddar or blue cheese crumbles. Lemon pepper or Cajun seasoning spices up a fillet of farm-raised catfish, while grilled peppers and onions top Ray?s sizzling sausage sandwich made from ground filet mignon and pork.
Sports fans won’t miss a play if they head to Red Dog Right to watch games. The restaurant plays every one of the Texas team's match-ups, fueling the festivities with a menu of game-ready eats. Chefs pile toppings such as grilled maple ham, smoked gouda, and sweet pineapple onto pizzas and stuff flour-tortilla pockets with cheddar and hamburger, giving quesadillas a hometown spin. They also toss wings with sweet Coca-Cola bacon BBQ sauce or ultra-hot ring of fire sauce. Events and specials change monthly, but guests can usually expect happy hours with discounted wings and complimentary popcorn.
