Way Out West For Meatless Monday

Fuzzy's veggie taco.jpg
There's veggies in there, pinky swear.
I'm an unflinchingly loyal Fuzzy's fangirl. The bright pops of neon on the aluminum walls, the funky T-shirts, the large souvenir cups (which make up my entire drinkware collection), the feta on everything -- I'm completely drunk on the marketing Kool-Aid.

So when I sauntered into the newest location on Decatur's downtown square, still in soft opening mode, I was shocked to find out I didn't even know they served grilled veggie tacos. I already had my heart set on a basket full of tempura fish Baja tacos, so I planned my rapid return. And return I did to do Meatless Monday some justice and give one of my favorite places a shot on the most challenging of days.

Considering that the ink on the lease probably is still wet, I was impressed with how hiccup-free the service was. Soft openings are always a bit of a crap shoot. Either someone's angry teenage nephew is allowed to run the register or the kitchen just does not have its shit together yet. That wasn't the case at the wildly popular chain's newest venture in Wise County.

Back to the tacos. The words "it's Monday" are on repeat in my head and I gently resist shredded pork. Grilled veggie tacos it is. They were delicious. Zucchini and carrots are julienned and grilled with the house garlic sauce, topped with black beans loaded into a corn tortilla. Add lettuce, cheese, cilantro, tomatoes and feta on top and the Baja taco is born. And then destroyed, because I was starving. For $1.99 per taco, this is a lunch no-brainer.

Oh, and they serve booze and have 12 giant televisions playing various sports and Life Alert commercials. I call that one hell of a way to spend Meatless Monday.

Where are all the "pick up truck warriors" today? Nobody defending the remote outpost of Decatur?  Come on, let's hear how wonderful it is!

I have sent a petition NOT to allow food critics to venture outside the walls of the castle.  The next person who writes review about Decatur, Sherman, Ada, Oklahoma or  Archer City, will be excommunicated by the food clergy.

ps-I drove through Decatur a week ago; and made it a point to stop and look around; ya'll ain't missing nothin'!  Just Madge and her 5 kids, in a unairconditioned Econoline van, a tumbleweed and a DQ.

I have sent a petition to my local representative asking him to sponsor new legislation to outlaw the use of the non-word 'veggie' by anyone over the age of four. Because really. Isn't that a week one lesson in journalism school? "Only use words that actually exist outside of vapid toddler babble

@kergo1spaceship that was fuuny right der Kergs, that was some decatur defending going. You would have thought we called Houston the armpit and el paso the ass of the state. Now amarillo is another story, nothing says Amarillo like the smell of a slaughterhouse and shit filled fields

 @kergo1spaceship Agreed. Like that cool looking gas station that was in Killeen or something.

 @kergo1spaceship I, for one, will join in your petition.  I have no interest in driving to Decatur to get a Fuzzy's taco.  The same goes for anything north of Plano.

 

Sara, why all the focus on Decatur?

Like I said last time; I've been through Decatur about 200 times....all on my way to new Mexico, or Colorado.

 @primi_timpano She did warn us it was way out west. Which I didn't understand until I google'd where Decatur is (30 miles west of Denton, by the way).
