If you’ve been in Dallas for awhile, you’ve probably eaten at Casita Dominguez just behind Half-Price Books on Northwest Highway at Central Expressway. Well, brace yourself, but Casita Dominguez is no more (now it’s called Nueva Casita) and its namesake, Pete Dominguez, is on the ropes, according to a DMN story over the weekend. Lots of bad things have happened to Dominguez, whose best man at his wedding was UT legend Darrell Royal, but it sounds like most of them have been partially his fault (he says 50% in the story). Anyway, it’s an interesting piece about a Dallas restaurant legend.
