Two Mules restaurant inside new Texican Court hotel in Las Colinas is the Texas cowboy cooking you need


It’s not easy to find Two Mules, an unmarked restaurant inside the new Texican Court hotel in Las Colinas, but don’t let that deter you from popping in for some of the city’s best cooking.

The chef, Patrick Hildebrandt, blends San Antonio-inspired Tex-Mex with cowboy cuisine, turning out uncommonly good scratch biscuits and croissants, blueberry scones, chilaquiles and eggs Benedict topped with chopped brisket that he slow-smokes overnight.

If breakfast isn’t your jam, Hildebrandt is probably slow-roasting chickens, ribs or pork shoulders on that oak-fueled smoker, tucking the meat inside thick flour tortillas or plating it with a roasted corn and black bean succotash to serve at lunch.

For dinner? Order the achiote-rubbed pork pibil, chicken flautas and grilled shrimp campechana if they’re on the menu that day.

“It’s only me and another kitchen guy making everything ourselves from scratch, all day long,” says Hildebrandt. “I basically live in this kitchen.”

501 West Las Colinas Blvd., Irving, (469) 577-4599, texicancourt.com.
