Where To Eat In Fort Worth

Joe T Garcias in Fort Worth Stockyards

From breakfast to margaritas, I’ve listed my favorite restaurants in Cowtown!  The beauty of this being my list is it’s subject to change as the restaurants do, or my whims!  Bon Appetite, Y’all!

The Woodshed Smokehouse in Fort Worth overlooks the Trinity River and the Trinity Trail.

Best Restaurant with a View Woodshed Smokehouse, 3201 Riverfront Dr.  Another Tim Love Restaurant, the food is incredible as you watch runners and cyclist along the Trinity Trail!

Best Brunch Buffet  Blue Mesa Grill, 612 Carroll Street,  From made-to-order omelets and belgian waffles to their salmon street tacos and black bean adobe pie, there are so many amazing selections on their buffet!

Honorable Mention goes to Pinstripes, Trailhead Bend Way, the Shops at Clearfork  They not only have an incredible Sunday brunch, but there’s bowling and bocce ball.  They have 12 locations across the nation, adding one soon in Houston.

Best Old School Breakfast  Paris Coffee Shop, 704 W. Magnolia  After a brief closure the Paris Coffee Shop is back open and as good as ever! They’ve been turning out great breakfast since 1926.  It just doesn’t get any better for a comfort breakfast!

Best Irish Pub Trinity College Irish Pub, 910 Curry St. My current favorite restaurant in Fort Worth, I can’t get enough of their shepherd’s pie and bangers and mash.

Best Burger   Rodeo Goat, 2836 Bledsoe Street   If you could only go to one burger place in Fort Worth, a town with amazing burgers, it would be the incredible selection of burgers at Rodeo Goat.

Best Pizza  Slice City, 4601 W. Frwy #220 and Fort Worth Pizzaria, 2800 Bledsoe St. are tied for best in my book, but I would love to see more incredible, hole in the wall pizza joints in Cowtown!  Places that stay open ridiculously late. have inviting seating and make you just want to hang out!

Best Tex Mex  Esperanza’s Mexican Cafe and Bakery, 2122 N. Main Street  Great selection of Tex Mex and authentic Mexican dishes!

Best Lunch  H3 Ranch,  105 E. Exchange St.  While H3 is always good, their daily lunch selections are a treat!

Best unique seating  Razoo’s Pink Couch in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square, 318 Main St.  This fun couch at the back of the restaurant is just a favorite for a fun girl’s day!  I wish more restaurants would create unique seating options!  I also wish Razoo’s would let you reserve the table, but they don’t, so if it’s busy, you’re chances are pretty slim of scoring it!


Best Patio  Joe T. Garcia’s, 2201 N. Commerce St.,   There’s not even a contest.  The incredible gardens at Joe T’s makes for the very best patio ever!

Best Margaritas  Reata, 310 Houston St., The $50 Billionaire Margarita is definitely the most famous, but their $12.95 Seasonal Margaritas on the rooftop bar are a pretty great way to end an evening, or start one!

Best Family Friendly  American Gardens, Morton St  I love this fun restaurant with great food, games and laid back atmosphere!

I also love a new guy, and Rogers Roundhouse, 1616 Rogers Rd.,  is a pretty cool place with a subtle train theme that is great for adults and kids!

Best Birthday Dinners  HG Supply, 1621 River Run  Celebrate and try something new at this great, laid back restaurant with exciting entrees!

Best Ice Cream Melt, 1201 W. Magnolia  Made daily from scratch, with new selections.

Best Stockyards Restaurant  Love Shack,  110 E. Exchange Ave  Although I really dislike their sloping bar stools, I love the fun atmosphere of this open-air restaurant.  Just get a chair!

Best Casual Seafood  Tricky Fish 5917 Convair Dr, Fort Worth  Our new seafood go-to offers great selections and don’t miss out on the grilled okra!

Best Lakefront Restaurant  Augie’s Sunset Cafe, 6172 Park Road  Let’s be honest, there aren’t a lot of fun lakeside restaurants in Fort Worth, although we have plenty of Lake Front!  Sadly, those that do open just don’t last!  If you’re out on the lake or just need to see some water, this is a fun little place with good food right next door to Twin Points Park!

The Point on Lake Worth, 1349 Bomber Rd.,  is a neat little hidden restaurant, too.  They need a bigger and better patio, but the kids enjoyed the big open area and going down to the water to throw some fries to the turtles!
