5 sandwiches to eat this week: The Chikalicious at Slow Bone, a fried ribeye, a crab po’ boy & more

Chef Jeffrey Hobbs at Slow Bone BBQ has entered the Chicken Sandwich Wars. It was the Popeye’s version that did him in. The fast-food chain’s fried chicken sandwich, which launched in 2019 to a customer frenzy, was a disappointment to Hobbs. It left a sour taste in his mouth, as he tells it, compared to a personal favorite, the “Mother Clucker” smoked thigh sandwich at Stanley’s Famous Pit BBQ in Tyler, Texas. It sent him straight into the kitchen to fire-up his own version.

Hays revived Sfuzzi once before, in 2009. The two are resurrecting the long-ago pizza bar for nostalgia’s sake, mostly.

D.L. Mack’s Tavern opens across the street from SMU, selling Chicago-style food

New University Park restaurant D.L. Mack’s Tavern is billed as the “oldest new restaurant to open this year,” and the owners might just be right. The converted Biscuit Bar on Hillcrest Avenue, across the street from Southern Methodist University, looks like it’s been serving cracker-thin pizzas and cheeseburgers for decades, not days. It’s all dark woods and black leather booths, with old tiles from the Chicago Civic Center and Windy City memorabilia on the walls.

#8 • Kentucky Peerless Double Oak

Double Oak was born of a happy accident, when a leaky barrel forced the distilling team to transfer its liquid to a new charred oak barrel. Exposure to that second barrel gave the whiskey amped-up flavors and lots more complexity. This is a bourbon that has gone into overdrive, and it handles the road just fine. Its syrupy sweet texture is checked by the oak influence, and the palate opens to flavors aplenty—dried peaches, warm apple pie, Christmas spice, gingerbread, raisin cake, chocolate, and pumpkin purée. Perfect as a holiday warmer or a backyard barbecue sipper, this is a whiskey for all seasons. —David Fleming.

There’s plenty of fried chicken options in Dallas, but Korean fried chicken isn’t as abundant. Welcome to the scene, Mad For Chicken.
