Chef Abraham Salum reviews Cos’ chili on jalapeño cheddar cheese biscuits at Fearing's

"I am not a big chili fan, but Dean Fearing does it like none I’ve tasted before: chunks of beef, great seasoning, perfectly poached eggs, and a great poblano Hollandaise."
Chef Nick Badovinus reviews Barbecued shrimp taco at Fearing's

"Mango salsa and BBQ—that’s the combo of flavor that brought me to the Mansion 16 years ago to work for Dean Fearing. The lobster taco is the most important dish to ever come out of Dallas. This bite keeps the dream alive. Not to mention Dean is, without question, the best retail politician working the floor of any restaurant in Texas, if not the country! If you want to learn how to run a joint, head on in and watch the master!"
Chef Richard Chamberlain reviews Apricot barbecue glazed Lockhart Texas quail at Fearing's

"Dean Fearing’s apricot-glazed quail is really amazing. It’s served with an iceberg wedge, salty Point Reyes blue cheese, and cider-braised bacon. Make sure you pick up the quail legs to get every sweet morsel of the Texas-raised quail."
