Local Flavor: Dining in the Wolf Den
By Donna Long
The Wolf Den restaurant in Gainesville started as a wife and husband venture in 2004. Their dream was to share wholesome, comfort food delivered in a down-home-goodness style to the community of Cooke County. Wolf Den is known for its relaxing, family-friendly environment, as well as its chicken fried steak and all-you-can-eat catfish.
Since its start, the restaurant has been sold but is still managed by a family member. It still has the vibe of sitting in your favorite aunt’s dining room and having a bite to eat while chatting, in this case, chatting with the waitresses.
The vibe is casual, with a menu that offers simple, flavorful dishes that truly satisfy. I really enjoyed the French dip hoagie. Sliced smokey grilled steak is layered on a hoagie roll. It is loaded with onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, swiss and mozzarella cheeses. The cheese combo was a delicious mix bringing out the flavor of the steak. The au jus sauce was served in a small bowl, not a tiny plastic cup so that you could dip the entire end of the sandwich in it.

From the Kitchen: Green Bean Casserole
Side dishes are just as important to a holiday meal as the main course. It’s perfectly acceptable to offer a few new and unique dishes on your holiday table, but guests likely will be expecting some tried-and-true classics as well.
Green bean casserole is a staple of many holiday dining tables. Alongside mashed potatoes and candied sweet potatoes, green bean casserole is a beloved holiday recipe – and it’s easy to make as well. This recipe for traditional green bean casserole, courtesy of Campbell’s®, can hit the right tone for guests who want a taste of the holidays.
