Mac and Ernie’s Roadside Eatery has moved.
The lauded restaurant in Tarpley is now at 11804 FM 470, according to the restaurant’s website: “Our original shack has become the entrance of our new building – now you’ll be able to order inside!”
Mac and Ernie’s has gained a reputation statewide for chef Naylene Dillingham-Stolzer’s cooking, which mixes haute cuisine with some down-home magic. The results are dishes like pork tenderloin kebabs with chipotle cream, ancho chile-honey basted quail, lamb with salsa verde and salmon with herb butter as well as her famous cabrito burgers, which are available at lunch.
The restaurant is open 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sundays. Call (830) 562-3727 or click here for information.
In other restaurant news, Chunky’s Burgers, 4602 Callaghan Road, was featured on NPR recently for its use of the fiery Indian chile, bhut jolokia, on its 4-Horseman Burger.
The story was in response to a BBC report that India was working on a stun grenade using the chiles.
“I can easily see that,” owner Joey Prado said. “It’s a dangerous pepper.”
