Opening in River Oaks on Saturday, July 29, the 3,800-square-foot location will be the area's third Fuzzy's (there's one in Meyer Park and one in Missouri City) and one of 100 nationwide. There's a "custom-made, flaming hammerhead shark mounted on the wall," according to a press release, and if that's not enough to get the family out of the house, perhaps the garden patio will be — there's also a dog-friendly bar. Expect freebies, including shirts, mugs and koozies on Saturday and a menu that rocks an all-day breakfast and loads Baja-style tacos, soft or hard shell, with numerous fillings, from brisket to tempura shrimp, burrito bowls, salads and more traditional Mexican fare of the customizable nature as well.
A kid’s menu includes tacos, nachos, a cheeseburger quesadilla and chicken sticks, with carrots and ranch dressing offered as a side. But make no mistake, there are definitely margs for the parents.
Opening Saturday, June 29. Weekend Hours: Friday and Saturday, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
There comes a time in every child's life when they must venture away from the usual black chicken tenders. Enter Tarka India Kitchen with its masala spiced, chickpea breaded chicken pakoras, essentially just really great chicken strips accompanied by a minty tamarind dipping sauce. Likely your kids will cringe at first, but this appetizer, along with many of the milder curries, and the kebabs — you know, meat on a stick — are sure to please the family. Plus, everything on the menu here is under $10 and there is ample parking and easy access to Fat Cat Creamery (or Hugs and Donuts) for dessert. Make sure to order the garlic naan.
Weekend Hours: Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
