Randy Bee-Z offers late-night eats

Posted 4:51pm on Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2010

The after-hours crowd searching for sustenance to counter all the revelry will find a new offering in the former Coffee House Gallery space, situated next to the Rainbow Lounge at the corner of Jennings and Pennsylvania in Fort Worth.

Forever, it seems, people in need of eats after midnight had only a couple of choices - Ol' South Pancake House or a drive-through. But now Randy Bee-Z comes to the rescue.

We stopped by during daylight hours just to see what's what. And what we found is a place heavy in fried food, not long in much else, other than a pleasant enough staff.

There's plenty of table and booth seating in front of the counter where you place your order. A giant menu hangs overhead, with big color photos to help you visualize your burger, pizza, nachos and wrap sandwiches. Throughout the cozy restaurant, stuffed animals in bee shapes are predominant in the decor.

Nothing groundbreaking here, although the idea of Scandinavian vegetables intrigued us. When asked what this item - one of the sides you can order - was, our friendly order-taker said she had no idea why this assortment of mixed peas, carrots and beans is called Scandinavian.

Open until midnight Monday and Tuesday and until 3 a.m. the rest of the week, Randy Bee-Z serves burgers, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, personal pan pizzas, fried pickles, waffle fries, fried okra and BLT sandwiches. We had an adequate turkey-ham-and-cheese wrap in a spinach tortilla, along with a broccoli cheese soup (no better or worse than the kind you buy at the grocery store), and found little to complain or rave about.

Our guess is that at 2 a.m., this will be a rewarding experience for most diners, especially those with a buzz about their heads. 609 S. Jennings, Fort Worth. 817-870-5090.
