Hoffbrau serving up the black-eyed peas

Hey, Bud! We’re struggling to find restaurants serving black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day. Please help us.

—Jan, Fort Worth

Black-eyed peas are making a comeback.

All four area Hoffbrau Steak & Grill Restaurants in Benbrook, Granbury, Grapevine and Haltom City will bring back black-eyed peas as of Monday, New Year’s Day, and they’re staying on the menu.

Po’ Melvin’s, 4070 N. Belt Line Road, is known for black-eyed peas and will serve more than 1,000 bowls.

The peas also will be a special of the day Monday at Vickery Cafe, 4120 W. Vickery Blvd.; Texan Diner, 2488 Avondale Haslet Road; and Catfish & Company, 900 Airport Freeway, Hurst.

And Arlington has the last Black-eyed Pea Restaurant in Texas, serving them daily at 4000 Bagpiper Way.

Hard Eight says no deal.

Yes, there’s a developer’s map out there with a Hard Eight penciled in.

But Vicki Nivens emailed that there’s “nothing in writing!! Just looking.”

Hudson House takes walk-ins at bar

Hey, Bud! What’s the deal with Hudson House? They don’t have any reservations for days, and there’s a 2-hour wait if you walk in?

—Rodney, Fort Worth

Tip: You don’t have to book ahead to sit at the bar, although you might have to wait for a seat. Don’t go at a busy time.
