|Burgers & Bock at
Various locations in the Dallas/Fort Worth
area. On weekends Central Market's outdoor patio turns into
a Beer Garden with music and good burgers.
If you want good old-fashioned down home southern
type cooking and Big Buns go one of the Dixie House locations.
You can go to their website to find the one nearest you.
A big Mexican restaurant with a big menu. It
is on Main Street just north of the Fort Worth Stockyards.
Our favorite Mexican restaurant. They make
great rellenos. We go to the Esperanza's that is right by its
parent restaurant, that being Joe T. Garcia's.
2122 N. Main Street in Fort Worth
Joe T.'s is where you take out of town
visitors when you want to impress them with a unique Texas
experience. Joe T's is huge. The place to eat here is outside in
the beautifully landscaped patio garden. The evening menu is
very limited, you can get either chicken or beef fajitas or an
enchilada platter. There is a full menu for lunch. 2201 N.
Commerce Street in Fort Worth
Fuzzy's make great Fish Tacos. And other
really good Mexican food. There are two locations in Fort Worth.
Go to their website to find directions.
Indian Restaurant & Bar
If you like Indian food buffets, this place
has a really good lunch buffet. It's in Arlington at 532 Fielder
South Pancake House
This is a fun place anytime of the day or
night. The real late night crowd can be entertaining to watch.
The Ol' South is just south of I-30 at 1509 S. University Drive
in Fort Worth. It's the same freeway exit as the Fort Worth Zoo,
but you go south instead of north.
Olenjack's is sort of Texasified American cuisine
with items like fried antelope ribs and chicken with cheddar
grits on the menu. Located in Arlington at 770 Road to Six Flags
Gourmet tamales like Poblano Chicken,
Cranberry Roasted Pecan & Jalapeno, Wild Mushroom &
Texas Goat Cheese, Ancho Pork and many more. Located at 713 W.
Magnolia Avenue in Fort Worth's hospital district.
Our favorite Thai place with the best Pad Thai
ever. Located in Haltom City at 4023 E. Belknap Street.
|Zeke's Fish & Chips
If you are from a coastal state and are used
to good seafood and you miss deep-fried Cod, Zeke's is the place
to go. Located a block off Camp Bowie Blvd. in Fort Worth at
5920 Curzon Avenue.
Lebanese Restaurant & Hookha Lounge
Lebanese Middle Eastern cuisine. If you've
not tried it, you need to. The lunch time buffet is one of our
all time favorites. Located a few blocks south of the Stockyards
at 1406 North Main Street.
It's celebrity chef Tim Love's latest, a
gourmet hamburger joint where the White Elephant Saloon's
outdoor patio used to be. The Love Shack hasn't been open all
that long, yet it has already been recognized nationally for its
burgers. The Shake of the Day is a good thing too, with flavors
like Mango. Real good onion rings. The Love Shack is easy to
find. If you find the iconic Fort
Worth Stockyards sign, just look south and you'll see
the Love Shack.
Cafe at Gaylord Texan
The food is good, but it is being in the Gaylord
Texan that makes it great, with all of Texas under one roof for
your sightseeing pleasure while you eat. There are several
restaurant options under the Gaylord Texan atrium, Old Hickory
Steakhouse, Ama Lur (named Most Romantic Restaurant by AOL City
Guide), Silver Bar (a classic wild west saloon), Texas Station
(a sports bar on steroids) and a couple other cafe type venues.
Gaylord Texan is in Grapevine. It's big. You don't need
directions, just follow the signs.
There are several Riscky's BBQ joints in
the D/FW area. We've been to the downtown
Fort Worth one and the Fort
Worth Stockyard's Riscky's. We've been to the
Stockyard's Riscky's more times than we can remember. Riscky's
along with Joe T. Garcia's is where we take out of towners for a
fun Texas eating experience. The Stockyards Riscky's has a
larger outdoor patio where you can watch all that passes,
including the Fort
Worth Herd. We always get the All You Can Eat
There are 9 Razzoo's in the D/FW Metroplex
featuring anything that grows in a swamp. Including Fried Gator
4 D/FW locations. 2 in Arlington and 1
each in Dallas and Fort Worth. The restaurants are huge, with
classic Tex-Mex and very good, warm salsa. We usually get the
Durango Plate for 9.99, that's a pork tamale and beef enchilada
smothered in chili beef sauce and one chicken taco.
