Updates on Pulido’s, Szechuan, Riscky’s BBQ in Fort Worth

Pulido’s Kitchen to reopen, ‘maybe May’

Hey. Bud! Any word when Pulido’s will reopen?

—Lots of readers

The new green awning at 2900 Pulido St. near Montgomery Street spurred questions about the 58-year-old Mexican restaurants’ reopening under new owners from JD’s Hamburgers and West Side Cafe.

They say “maybe May,” meaning maybe — maybe — in time for the pro golf tournament nearby.

The new name is on the awning: “Pulido’s Kitchen & Cantina.”

But his hours have been limited lately while he deals with complications of stress, a manager said.

The restaurant is doing its best to uphold traditions at the 45-year favorite, and this week a lunch plate of garlic chicken ($9.50) was as good as ever.
