Fuzzy's Tacos: Welcome to your new addiction!

Only a few years ago Fuzzy's Taco had only a single store near TCU in Ft. Worth.  Since, even during these horrible economic times, they have literally EXPLODED.  Presently, they have 42 stores in 7 states.  Stores are opening soon in four more states, as far east as Georgia and as far North as Wicsonsin.
 
They are insanely good (IMHO).  I just "discovered" them a few months ago from rave reviews on Urban Spoon.  Their shredded garlic beef, shredded pork, and "boracho beans" are, to me, positively addicting.  And, you don't have to go searching for the meat in their tacos; they are blessedly generous with their goodness.
 
In fact, their motto is "Welcome to your new addiction".  If there ever is truth in advertising, that is it!   http://www.fuzzystacoshop.com/index.html
 
(BTW:  During the Reagan Administration I was an original customer at Five Guys' first store and knew immediately that if the owners had any business sense they would franchise.  It took them years to open their second and more than a decade to open their third.  By those standards Fuzzy's growth since 2005 is "off the charts" and has accelerated since 2005.  If you live in Cali or the East Coast megaplex, here is a franchise opportunity!  I have no pecuniary interest in Fuzzy's, but wish I did!)

    not a fan of them here in Florida. They were just starting to spread in the Dallas area and I never made it there before I moved to Florida. Tried the new one here in Bradenton and it was just awful. Meat was dried out and flavorless. Queso was just gross. Maybe I will try them in Dallas when I come visit in March to see if they are any better there than here

    How did I miss this thread?
     
    I tried them maybe 6 years ago in Sherman, Texas.  Didn't care for them but I have a lot to compare them with or to in a preposition ending sentence.  Someone ought to change that rule!
     
    The next time I was there they had already closed.
     
    But... so did my favorite fried shrimp place so it could be the area and not the product.  Those shrimp were incredible!

    Evidently they have had a problem with keeping consistent quality in their franchise locations.  Too bad, because the one here in McKinney is still "going strong".
     
    Evidently they do especially well in college towns where "the munchies" are seemingly metastatic.  In any case, they are now almost nation-wide with 146 locations and 'counting'.  I asked my daughter and she says to one in Charlottesville is doing great.  When I went to Mr. Jefferson's "academikal village" the "problem" was beer and Bourbon hangovers.  I guess times have changed!
     
    ----------------------------
     
    Yes, that shrimp place!
     
    We drove up there on your suggestion and you were correct; the shrimp were fantastic!  In fact, my very first "food pics" post was on that occasion.
     
    A few months later I was in downtown Dallas and I sought out that location for lunch but was very disappointed that it had shut down.  Arriving home I checked online to find that the one in Sherman was gone as well. 
     
    To borrow a phrase from the Twitterer-in-Chief:  "SAD!"
     
    I never have been able to figure out why (really good, big) fried shrimp are so hard to find in Dallas.  I can understand our crappy crab cakes, but Texas has hundreds of miles more Gulf coast than LA, MS, & AL - states where you can even find excellent shrimp at filling stations!

    California has fried shrimp. Most I've found in restaurants except for one that closed or Japanese restaurants, have always come straight out of a bag or box.
     
    With overnight flights and ice, all states should have good seafood... I think.  Maybe they'd cost a bit more but great shrimp are worth it.
     
    I live on the coast in a city that lacks seafood restaurants.  One finally opened with a fish market inside of the restaurant.  The seafood comes mostly from New  Zealand!
