3133 Cleburne Rd
Fort Worth's oldest deli, Carshon's is known for it's kosher selection of grilled sandwiched on homemade bread. Try the Rebecca, which has layers of pastrami, smoked turkey and cream cheese drizzled with Russian dressing. Also popular is the Reuben, served with corned beef or pastrami, melted swiss and kraut on your choice of bread. The homemade pies, chocolate or strawberry delight are made fresh daily.
The Sausage Shoppe
1302 E. Seminary Drive
Family owned and operated, the Shoppe is known for sausage and barbecue sauce. Owner Ivy Chambers makes and smokes a variety of sausages from scratch. The sauce is sweet with a cajun kick. Chambers opened the restaurant after entering retirement but he began perfecting his barbecue long before opening The Sausage Shoppe. The homemade barbecue sides include potato salad, baked beans and banana pudding.
Fred's Texas CafÃÂ©
915 Currie St
If you're looking for a good burger with a side of fun then Fred's is where it's at. Outlaw chef Terry Chandler has created a unique destination with lchuckwagon style cooking, cold beer and live music on the outdoor patio. The award-winning "Fred Burger" is a half pound of Texas beef served with hand cut fries you can top with cheese, bacon and grilled onions or a taco meat, cheese, sour cream and peppers.

Vallarta's authentic Mexican and fresh seafood dishes include camarones rellones, tostada de ceviche, grilled ?sh and sopa marinera with shrimp, octopus, scallops and lobster feet.

Vallarta has traditional fare, nachos and flautas and a variety of lunch specials for $3.99.
Margie's Original Italian Kitchen
9805 Camp Bowie W
Not much has changed at Margie's since it opened more than ?fty years ago. The cozy charm and soft light makes it perfect for date night. The lasagna is made with a generous array of fresh cheeses from provolone to ricotta and romano. Their brick oven pizza is available with white or red sauce and a wide range of toppings. Italian wedding cake also provides an uncommon dessert that is a must try.
Thai Rice n' Noodle
9094 Camp Bowie W
Rice n' Noodle allows guests to select the level of spiciness on a scale from one to ?ve. Pad Thai, curry, and Thai tea are menu favorites. The coconut curry chicken soup with lime is an interesting flavor combination and the restaurant is famous for, oddly enough, chicken wings in a variety of flavors. Try the Pad Kra Pow, chicken with Thai mint and the deep-fried crab rangoons with an egg roll.
