From Jim and Liz 

A restaurant is alive. Like a person or family, we are defined by the relationships we form. This year is our company’s 30th anniversary! It is a celebration (in many ways) of your celebrations. We truly are your and the community’s restaurant. Nothing better represents this than our Good Karma Guacamole program. We benefit when you come in to enjoy this tableside appetizer.

It is emblematic of who we are and what we offer – fresh, handmade, to order.
And 50 cents is donated to that restaurant’s designated local charity.

TNT is part of a family of restaurants that includes Blue Mesa Grill with locations in Dallas, Plano, Arlington, and Fort Worth. Lena Pope Home, our Fort Worth beneficiary, has been with us for 15 years. Others, like River Legacy in Arlington, are new this year. Over the years we, together with you, have donated almost a quarter million dollars. Thank you.

We are very grateful to our Chileheads for helping make a difference in peoples’ lives – particularly ours! 

More sweet potato chips!

Thank you to our TNT family.

 See below for a list of some of more tenured staff that truly are the ones who make it happen every day.


Harrison Hurd, smooth talker,  and Kyle Hayes, bar master extraordinaire,  both started here at TNT as Bussers and have worked their way up to hourly managers.  Harrison has been with us for 3 years and Kyle for almost 6 years.  They keep us laughing and in good spirits.



Eric has been with the company for over 6 years. He started as a server at Blue Mesa Fort Worth before moving to TNT when we opened in Dallas. From serving, catering, bartending, and training, Eric does it all and consistently gives great service to our guests. We have relied on Eric to be an all-star employee and he has delivered!


Cheryl started at TNT the day that we opened. It was clear from the beginning of staff training that she was going to be a TNT lifer. Starting out as a server, Cheryl’s hard work led to her being promoted to a management role, including leading our brunch on Sundays. Her infectious energy and positive attitude make people want to work with her and guests want to come back to see her. Thank you Cheryl!
