M&O Grill – Fort Worth, Texas

I have been a faithful customer here for years. Chef Danny, the owner, employs a fantastic and friendly staff, you won’t leave hungry and you can learn a ton of history about The Fort.

I was the first customer on this particular Saturday morning. I got to chat with Chef Danny which was quite the treat. He is usually so busy. I think it has been years so I have gotten to speak with him.

Deciding what to get is not easy.  Salads, sandwiches, chicken fried steak, pie (I do love me some pie) and several other selections. But I cannot not order one of their burgers.

The burgers here are so good. SO damn good. And I think they have the best fries in town, whether you choose regular or sweet potato. They offer a classic burger, a tasty  Greek Burger with Feta and sundried tomatoes, The Toluca stuffed with chorizo with Monterrey jack and guacamole, a patty melt and several others. I kept it simple with an order of 3 sliders with cheddar with regular fries.

They make everything fresh, so after ordering, I took a stroll through the attached Leonard’s Museum.

Leonard’s was a special department store in Fort Worth from 1918 – 1967. You could purchase groceries, furniture, farming supplies, fashion – anything you would need. They had a subway (Original restored subway car located at One City Place – 300 Throckmorton, Downtown).  During Christmas, they had a Toyland that rivaled Macy’s in New York.

Speaking of Christmas, Wille Nelson wrote Pretty Paper about a disabled street vendor that sold paper and ribbon for pennies outside Leonard’s.

My food was ready and I was hungry.
