Famous Faces' Local Choices, or: Wherein Kent Rathbun Spills the Bachman Lake Taco Secret

Is it lunch-thirty already?
Over the weekend, The Wall Street Journal rounded up some bold-faced locals -- including Luke Wilson, who I guess counts -- and asked 'em to pick a few recommendations each for out-of-towners and those natives who don't venture far from their comfort zones. And while the intro's a bit tiresome -- "For years, Dallas has been living down its big-hair-and-big-hats reputation," oy -- Wilson, Neimans CEO Karen Katz, SMU's Meadows School dean José Antonio Bowen and chef Kent Rathbun do offer some nice choices.

Wilson, for instance, likes S&D Oyster Company, among several other familiar eateries on his to-do list. (Luke: You can do better than Mi Cocina. Or Tenure.) Katz says: Check out the White Elephant Antiques Warehouse on IndustrialRiverfront. Bowen steers you to the Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden on Spring Valley. Meanwhile, Rathbun rats out one of the great Northwest Dallas taco secrets: the gas station across the street from Bachman Lake.
Shell Station: Bachman Tacos & Grill. Don't be put off by the fact that this taco stand is located inside a Chevron-station strip. Order the combo taco, one of the city's most scrumptious best buys. 3311 W. Northwest Highway, 214-352-0010

Maybe this should be retitled "Where to go in North Dallas"

You know what? Dis Luke Wilson all you want but he's right. Dallas can do far, far better than Mi Cocina although you wouldn't know it by reading SideDish...

It is a Chenron station and yes, their fare is great, and they also have the cheapest gas in that area.

Actually, that was me telling Luke he could do better than Mi Cocina, which was among his recommendations.

He's also recommended Javier's, which is kinda mediocre. Other than the opening paragraph, it was a helpful article.
