Savor Dallas Food and Wine festival plans to kick ass and take names in 2015 #Sponsored

You know that saying about leaving well enough alone? Yeah, Dallas has been throwing that saying right out the window lately when it comes to food.

I Found The Foundry & Chicken For Not Much Scratch

The Foundry Bar/Chicken Scratch is a good looking, Austin-like oasis of beer, chicken and wood pallets in Oak Cliff on Pittman, just past a trailer park.
