Crafting a narrative around Fort Worth's incredible restaurant scene is no small feat. The city's culinary landscape has blossomed into a diverse and vibrant scene, showcasing a fusion of traditional Texan fare with innovative twists that keep this city’s restaurant offerings fresh and new.
Three standout figures have helped to shape this culinary evolution.
Chef Tim Love stands tall with his renowned establishments like Lonesome Dove, Caterinas, and Woodshed.
Chef Felipe Armenta has left an indelible mark on Fort Worth's palate, introducing some of the city's best salads and more at Marias, Pacific Table, and Press Cafe.
Marcus Paslay, the visionary behind Clay Pigeon and Provender Hall, adds another layer to Fort Worth's culinary scene.
Established in 1935, Joe T. Garcia's stands as an iconic fixture in Fort Worth, solidifying its status as the city's most renowned restaurant. Posessing a timeless charm, this legendary eatery is synonymous with some of the best Mexican cuisine and margaritas in town. It’s the perfect example of Tex-Mex excellence, and you never know, you may just run into a celebrity on their gorgeous patio.
We promise we eat more than just Mexican food around here. Some of our other favorite spots are Tokyo Cafe for sushi and other great Japanese dishes, and Heim BBQ for some of the best brisket in town (The Big Cat Sandwich is life-changing. Brisket + Green Chile Mac n Cheese = Mind. Blown.). For an excellent Italian meal, we recommend 61 Osteria, located in downtown Fort Worth. For some of the freshest seafood and “Fort Worth's Coldest Martini” head to Walloon's in Southside. Find the freshest farm-to-table offerings at Ellerbe Fine Foods!
