— The overall winner of queso competition Quesoff, which took place last Saturday, was the Willigan’s Island team with its spicy green bean queso. Other winners included Better Half for its meaty pastrami queso, Kesos Taco House for both the spicy and veggie categories, and Dai Due under the wild card category for its deep-fried queso croquetas.
— Fresh off its Quesoff win, Kesos Taco House is temporarily closed through Monday, September 3 for renovations, reopening on Tuesday, September 4. Its food truck on South Congress will stay open during that time.
— Because of Texas’ current drought state, the city is implementing state 1 conservation restrictions starting today, Monday, August 17. This means that restaurants can also serve people water if they request glasses, and businesses are only allowed to use patio misters from 4 p.m. to midnight.
— There’s a new ice cream shop up in Jollyville. Bat City Gelato, which opened in mid-August, features gelato (with flavors like blackberry, banana, and Nutella), along with other unspecified frozen desserts.
