Another country-themed bar and grill has opened in the AT&T Discovery District, replacing Jaxon Texas Kitchen and Beer Garden. By Legends Hospitality and FB Society’s Jack Gibbons, Cowboy Chow predictably plays on Yellowstone-fueled cowboy sentiment with recipes “from Mexico to Montana.” As before, the best seats are on the wide-open patio amid the futuristic light show. Our visit landed on a dreary day, however, so we requested one of the more inviting tables close to the windows and ordered the green chile chicken chowder and a steak-and-cornbread panzanella salad from the “Lunch on the Range” menu. Both were fine, but they wouldn’t have induced us to write home about them, had we really been on the range. The chowder was a mild mix of green chiles, pinto beans, and corn, with healthy chunks of chicken and rectangles of sugary cornbread. The sweet cornbread made another appearance in the panzanella salad with fresh field greens, but no basil leaves, as the menu indicated. What we wanted more of—even more than the culminating large bowl of butterscotch pudding—was the off-menu, not-too-sweet orange-pecan iced tea.
