My kingdom for a meal of crab

Jeri Moore, Business Manager

February 17, 2020

The little seafood restaurant on 3801 Call Field Road stands to fill a cajun spiced hole in our local eateries; however, you may need to ask the waitstaff to turn up the spice since the medium I ordered was extremely mild. We took a seat in booths to the right of the door and were quickly waited on. The waitres...

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers food review

December 4, 2019

Thin, crispy steakburgers, shoestring potatoes and frozen custard caused long lines in the drive-through outside of the restaurant. An employee stood outside handing out paper copies of the menu to waiting cars with a smile on her face. The Wichita, Kansas based company that went global found its way...

Crawdaddy’s: Not the chain, the mom and pops


Kristin Silva, Managing Editor

October 15, 2019

  CrawDaddy's Seafood and Steaks is a Cajun and seafood mom and pop restaurant that opened Summer 2019. All restaurants claiming to be "cajun" need to have a half-decent tasting gumbo option at the very least. That being said, CrawDaddy's gumbo ($8) is phenomenal. As soon as the bowl wa...

On a whim, my boyfriend and I went to dinner at El Tapatio March 4. We arrived at about 6 p.m. and were sat almost immediately. Our waiter came to get our drink orders and within ten minutes of being sat and getting my drink, I was able to order my dinner and have it placed in front of me. The feel...

A little spice makes everything nice

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...

Like most broke college students, we usually get hungry, especially when the dining halls are closed. This rang true for me on Labor Day. Mesquite Dining Hall was the only on campus restaurant open, and the food did not look appetizing. Thanks to my love of food, especially of the Asian variety, I set...

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 ...

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...

Barbecue restaurant nearly lives up to its name

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 ...

Glass Kitchen: Burger joint gets it right

The Glass Kitchen, a little hole in the wall on Old Iowa Park Road, serves up a delicious cheeseburger worth that is worth the 5.6-mile drive from campus. Although the diner looks a little worse for wear from the outside, the meal made up for the restaurant's appearance. Besides, a parking...

Salsa served two ways

Jefe's is a Mexican restaurant located on the corner of Southwest Parkway and Fairway Boulevard. They serve anything from tacos to burritos and on Saturday nights they have salsa dancing. When my friend and I walked in, the first thing we noticed was the dining area, decorated from front to back with...
