Buttons - Fort Worth, TX

We loved, loved Buttons! Be prepared for a terrific review...

Food and Music for the Soul is the motto for Buttons Restaurant located just off of the I-30, Hulen Exit. I guess it is a relatively new restaurant but is making a splash in the FW scene with it's live music and soul-soothing dishes.

We even found a great Draft beer selection - Fireman's 4. What a treat, very tasty.

Chipotle Chicken Quesadillas - grilled chicken, caramelized onions and blistered Santé Fe peppers. We got this as an appetizer during Happy Hour on one of our many visits, I told you we loved the place! I am not sure that the appetizer knocked our socks off, but it certainly did the trick.

Lauren ordered The Hick's Salad - Frisee and baby spinach with fresh watermelon, blue
cheese crumbles and candied pecans, tossed in Pomegranate vinaigrette. Lauren ate a lot of salad this trip, I need to take a clue. She bragged on this salad all night. She loved the watermelon and pecans... She was a happy camper, oh and she ordered a Lemon Drop too. That may have been why she was in an extra fantastic mood!

Best dish I ate in Texas, by far. This what they call the Phat Snaps -Lightly blackened, pan seared filet of snapper with a crab and shrimp stuffing. Served on a bed of corn chowder with lemon butter drizzle. So delicious. I split this with Scott because I never finish an entree and he wasn't that hungry and it was the perfect amount of food. They were nice enough to split the dishes in the kitchen for us. The waitress was kind of funny, she said it was one of the healthier dishes on the menu - it was swimming in butter, delicious, but really? I loved it, Scott agreed.

Lauren browsed the Dessert menu and came up with a good find - Blueberry, Banana & Walnut Bread Pudding with blueberry drizzle. Hello lover! Great order, mostly Lauren and I indulged.

Okay, this place was a great little find. It is easy to get to, located in a great shopping plaza and it is just a lot of fun. The food is definitely soul food and I haven't had much experience with that. Happy Hour is 4pm - 7pm and all app's are half off, score! Go get a Fireman's 4, it is totally refreshing. Music is usually rockin' in the bar area, so get your groove on and get down there! I can't wait to go back!
