Tiny Salsa Fuego isn’t so tiny anymore.

The beloved Mex-Mex restaurant has finally moved to a new location, in the much larger space once occupied by Red Dragon Chinese Buffet (3500 Alta Mere Dr.) It’s just a few feet from its previous sardine-can-size location, which will now turn into a burger joint, Fuego Burger (3520 Alta Mere Dr.), run by the same family.

Owner and chef Carlo Rodriguez said Fuego Burger will focus on the burgers he popularized at Salsa Fuego. It should be open later this spring/early summer. He also said a new menu at Salsa Fuego is coming soon. In the meantime, you can enjoy dishes from the original menu.


Wild Salsa and Chop House Burger coming to downtown Fort Worth

Wild Salsa is coming to downtown Fort Worth.

Wild Salsa is coming to downtown Fort Worth.

A second location of chef-inspired Mexican restaurant Wild Salsa will open in downtown Fort Worth’s One City Place development later this year. A sign is already in the window and an employee at the original downtown Dallas location confirmed it’s coming.

It’ll be side by side with a new location of Chop House Burger. Both come from the same restaurant group, Dallas based DRG Concepts.

The original Wild Salsa opened three years ago at 1800 Main St., in downtown Dallas’ Mercantile Building, with Nova’s Kelly Hightower serving as the original chef (he has since left).

According to their web site, Wild Salsa makes much of their food from scratch using locally sourced ingredients. The menu includes tacos and enchiladas, along with unusual items like shrimp and bacon quesadillas, guacamole with pumpkin and sesame seeds and lamb shank barbocoa. Brunch offerings include a “taco omelette” and barbocoa potato hash.

Trevino’s Mexican Comida to open Saturday

Trevino's may actually open on Aug. 5.

Trevino’s will really open Saturday, hopefully.

It’s been a slow-go for Louie and Bertha Trevino’s new Trevino’s Mexican Comida on Montgomery Street, but the homey resto in a refurbished office building will finally open this weekend, at 9am Saturday.

This location is a spin-off of L. Trevino’s, opened in 1988 in Rockwall. (Louie is also a former partner at the old Casa Dominguez in Dallas). The family eventually moved L. Trevino’s from its original locale into a space in Rockwall’s downtown square.

The Fort Worth location will have the same menu as the Rockwall store, comprised of Tex Mex standards enchiladas, tacos, fajitas and seafood dishes, as well as some more interesting items like taco soup and open-faced burritos. They’ll also serve breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, offering migas, menudo and tongue taquitos.

Dining room will seat about 40 people.
