This visit, I tried the Lamb Pitas. As always, the plate presentation was impressive. The quality and taste was a 9 out of 10. Lili's is always adding new items to their lunch menu to keep it fresh. My business clients are always impressed with the service and uniqueness of the Bistro. Can't go wrong eating here, lunch or dinner.
Every visit to Lili's has been delicious and different, so much so that we keep going back. From the hamburgers to the fish, everything we have ordered is outstanding, including the specials. For dessert, the donuts can't be beat.
There is fancier food at fancier prices, but it's very hard to beat the quality and price at this comfortable sit down restaurant. There are many very good and expensive restaurants in Fort Worth, but this is my favorite for relaxing and enjoying a meal with friends. Another good thing is if you go, and it's full, there are several other good choices in short walking distance there on Magnolia Street in Fort Worth's near Southside.
“Prepare to be blown away” at dinner (and impressed with lunch too) at this intimate Hospital District eatery with “fresh, creative” eclectic fare (including “lots of vegetarian choices”) “beautifully presented” by the chef-owner and his “friendly” staff; live music adds to the charm of the already “cute” brick-walled space; P.S. it’s “little”, so “reservations are a good idea”, especially on weekends.
The half-pound burgers here are Magnolia Avenue’s original answer to Kincaid’s or Dutch’s, but with the bonus of thick, fresh jalapeño buns, which lifts the bacon-Gorgonzola house burger to Battle-worthy levels. Lili’s also serves other solid burgers, including one featuring a poblano-bacon-jack burger. (But face it: The best reason to eat burgers at Lili’s is the Gorgonzola waffle fries.) ~ DFW.com
