Fort Worth’s longstanding merchant of catered meals and party foods, this grab-and-go shop perfected the art of making great takeaway food long before we came to depend on it. A fixed menu of staples is always offered, and there’s a changing assortment of soups, quiches, casseroles, and desserts weekly. Order this to go: Cranberry pecan chicken salad and slightly spicy pimento cheese make sandwiches a joy again. Feeding a family is a pleasure with sour cream–chicken enchiladas, pot roast and twice-baked potatoes, and Tex-Mex spaghetti. Best are the weeks when squash bisque and white chicken chili are on the soup menu, and chocolate chess bars and cherry cobbler are on the dessert list. Pro tip: Call to request curbside service, if needed; otherwise, pop in and shop the fridges and counters. Social distancing and mask-wearing is enforced.
