Ellerbe Fine Foods
This former filling station on Magnolia Avenue has been transformed into an airy, casually urban space with rustic touches. The patio feels like a relaxing front porch that invites you to stay with colorful chairs and large fans to keep you cool on warm evenings. The interior dining space evokes simple sophistication with white tablecloths and clean lines.

With write-ups in Gourmet, high praise from the Fort Worth Star Telegram, and 4 1/2 stars from the Dallas Morning News – Ellerbe’s deserves a visit.
