This weekend, I decided to go back home to Dallas and had every intention to grab some good Mexican food but, I ran out of time. By the time I made it back to Wichita Falls, I was seriously craving for some so I decided to visit a place a coworker suggested, El Ñorteno. I'm still not familiar with...

On a whim, I decided to drive to Sikes Senter Mall to do a little shopping and I worked up an appetite. I had tried my luck with Red Robin once before —which was an epic fail— and I wasn’t in the mood for On the Border. So, I decided to try Bricktown Tap House. Initially I figured it was a laid-back, ca...

Being new to the Wichita Falls area, I was in dire need of some homestyle soul-food. After doing a quick Google search, a place caught my eye: Sam’s Southern Eatery. I headed there with a bit of skepticism because honestly, I did not think Wichita Falls was capable of producing any good soul-food....

After one Pioneer of Texas restaurant closes on Sept. 25 a new restaurant, Sam’s Southern Eatery, opens at that location, off of Southwest Pkwy on Oct. 25, serving sea food, po’boys, burgers, salads and chicken. The restaurant still had that Pioneer feel to it because they still had those woode...

Walking through the doors and into the bright yet cozy sandwich shop, potential customers will be greeted with a murmur of conversations ranging from astrophysics to car modifications. A chorus of energetic voices will rise above all others. "Welcome to Firehouse!", the Firehouse Subs employees said cheerfully. Th...

There was a time when students of MSU argued which local burger shack had the best burgers. When the answer came to light, they needed something else to argue about. Politics, environmental issues, racism and sexism were all played out. The dawn of a new argument began, an issue that struck the core of every ...

When a friend first suggested I go to Rafter J BBQ after I ranted about a severe lack of cajun food in our otherwise culinarily-blessed city, I was immediately excited. Until I learned this supposed cajun-barbecue paradise was a whopping 17 minutes from campus, off 287 in Iowa Park. But as a person...

Sevi’s Burritos has been around since 1981, serving plate sized burritos for a steal of a price. Sevi’s is no hole in the wall, this family owned restaurant allows customers to seat themselves. The service is quick and the food is delicious. Every time I visit I am never disappointed. The re...

The new dining contract has brought with it a new way to eat at the Mesquite Dining Hall. One of the biggest changes is the buffet-style serving, a change from previous years where students could only get one entree at a time. The buffet-style serving may take some time to get used to but overal...

Texas Best BBQ & Burgers, at the corner of Maplewood and Southwest Parkway, may not be the best, but it's good. The restaurant is nothing special from the outside, but the interior is well decorated with a cowboy theme throughout. The front counter is situated so that visitors can watch t...

Mr. Taco, a cozy restaurant just outside downtown Wichita Falls, provides memorable Mexican food basics and an authentic atmosphere. The tiny shop has a nondescript exterior except for the giant painted anthropomorphic taco painted on the sign, and the inside is clean and vibrant with a handful ...

Scott's Drive In is everything I pictured when thinking about the 1960’s drive-in and diners. The odd colors and architecture were the staple of this small drive-in. The older men even dressed the part of the 1960’s cook with the triangular paper hat and white shirts. There were multiple spe...
