One of Fort Worth’s most eagerly awaited restaurants of 2021 was actually a reboot of the venerable Roy Pope Grocery. The longtime owners sold in 2020 to a team, led by chef Lou Lambert, who modernized the grocery shelves and added a patio, a coffee/wine bar, and an extensive prepared food menu. Neighborhood regulars pop by for standouts like the chicken carbón, smoky and tender with perfectly charred skin, and meat loaf with mashed potatoes and tender-crisp broccolini. And, yes, the burger is back, and probably even better than you remember it: a juicy seared patty on a buttered and griddled bun with house-made pickles and mayo.
