Taco Heads | Cultural District
Voted Best Margarita in Fort Worth by our readers, this Tex Mex staple features beer-braised carnitas, bourbon black bean veggie + garlic cilantro gulf shrimp tacos for $3-$4.50. Need we say more? Bonus: Crispy beef tacos are $2 all day on Tuesdays.
Hotel Drover | Northside
Grab dinner at 97 West Kitchen & Bar inside the hotel, then head to the backyard for cocktails on the patio and live music every Saturday — just steps away from the bustling Stockyards.
Goat & Vine Restaurant + Winery | West 7th
The upscale restaurant and tasting room features house-made pasta, steaks, and multiple wine labels for guests to enjoy. Pro tip: Try the $35 bottomless mimosas and brunch package which features unlimited starters, one main course, and dessert — all for $65.
Musume | Downtown
This one-of-a-kind Fort Worth experience features table-side ramen, fish flown in daily from Japan, and the country’s largest premium sake program. Groups can also reserve the tatami room inside the former bank vault for an extra special experience.
Courtside Kitchen | University
Work up an appetite with a round of pickleball on the outside courts, then chow down on fish and chips, hot chicken sandwiches, and chile relleno, or snack on small bites like ranchero fries and fried pickles (ahem). There’s also an outdoor beer garden to catch up with your friends and family.
Rooftop Cinema Club | Downtown
Take in breathtaking views of downtown at this outdoor cinema while enjoying the best of the best when it comes to movie theater snacks. Toro Toro’s chef Richard Sandoval created an elevated concession-style menu with items like the Soft Salted Pretzel, Hot Diggity Dog, Pulled Pork Tacos, and Nacho Libre.
