Dirty Love on a Rainy Monday
July 27, 2009 § 2 Comments
The second location of Chef Tim Love’s sweet little burger joint, Love Shack, is set to open this Friday, July 31st at So7 in Fort Worth. But before the grand opening, he’s decided to treat patrons to half off lunches Monday-Wednesday of this week while they work out all of the kinks. I got wind of this great deal via @Cheftimlove on Twitter and immediately decided to hop on over today to check things out.
The gloomy weather and open patio didn’t keep people away, as there was quite a decent crowd waiting in line to get their Dirty Love burgers and strawberry shakes. In fact, Chef Tim Love was there himself, checking things out behind the counter and meeting and greeting the customers.
The atmosphere is quite different from the Stockyards location, with a slightly more trendy vibe, inside seating, and a nice little bar in the center that opens up to the patio and inside area.
I loved the chalkboard paint that covered the walls inside, which gave the joint a little bit of a down-home, comfy feel. And of course, the food was great. I got the Love Burger deal which includes a Love Burger, small fry, and drink – all for $4! (Usually $8). I must admit, I gave the fries much more “love” than the burger. I can’t get enough of those thin little strips of fried potato heaven. Lemonade was yummy, as well.
I’m looking forward to having the second Love Shack location so close to home as it seems like the perfect little spot to enjoy a brewsky (or two) on a Friday night. And of course, I had to get a cheese ball picture with Chef Love because I’m such a fan of the Food Network, Top Chef, and, well, food in general. Don’t judge.
