Cowboy Chow

Cowboy Chow opened up during my metblogs hiatus, and since I have recommended it to so many people that haven’t heard of it, it’s time to give it a proper review

First thing to mention is the restaurant’s pedigree. Cowboy Chow is the kid brother of the much lauded Twisted Root, which has the best burgers in Dallas, bar none. However, you won’t find any burgers at Cowboy Chow. What you will find is a really diverse menu for your open range dining experience.

The first thing that I tried was the Dr. Pepper braised short ribs. They were completely amazing, but are no longer on the menu; I only mention them to give you a feel for the creativity of the menu. The focus of their menu is the tacos. They have 4 different types of brisket tacos, my favorite being their standard brisket taco with sharp cheddar, pico and an avocado-lime cream, all of which is served over a bed of rice. The rest of the taco menu is given over to several chicken tacos and their veggie “cowgirl” taco.

The rest of the menu is filled out with brisket sloppy joes, a cast iron chicken pot pie and other range inspired eats. The appetizers are limited to 3 items. I recommend the Cowboy Nachos, homemade potato chips with queso fresco, pico and a southwestern ranch drizzle over the top. The fried green tomato lollipops are fun and the sloppy joe sliders can be a meal in themselves.

For as rich as the food sounds, you don’t leave the place feeling overstuffed or light in the wallet. The portions are perfect and the price is right, with the entrĂ©es priced between 7-9 bucks. The service is ridiculously fast, I have never waited more than 5 minutes for anything there, so you can really get in and out if you have to do a short lunch. The staff is really friendly and attentive, keeping your carafes of sweet watermelon tea filled to the brim or the pure cane sugar mexican cokes comin’.

So next time your out in Deep Ellum saddle up at Cowboy Chow.
