I don’t claim to be an expert on Fort Worth restaurants. We went to a few in the course of a weekend. We arrived fairly late (at least for me) Friday night. The hotel has a Thai restaurant but we were not in the mood for Thai. We could see restaurants on the next block so we headed that way. After looking at a few restaurants, we settled on Risckey’s Barbecue. The food was quite tasty (we both had sandwiches) but the service and presentation were lacking.
After sightseeing early on Saturday morning, I went looking for somewhere to watch college football. I wanted to watch an obscure game – the first two places I went were unable to accommodate my game. I had found Frankie’s on the web so I headed that way. It is a huge place with easily 40 screens. I asked for my game and they had it on a screen directly in front of me in 2 minutes. Yes!
Frankie’s was very busy: I found out that #7 Kansas State was playing at #6 TCU and the K-State visitors adopted Frankie’s as their “home” before and after the game. I met a few K-State folks – they were definitely fun: unfortunately, they lost the game.
On Saturday night, we tried Taco Diner which is on the new Sundance Plaza. We sat inside but the outside dining looked inviting as it overlooked the fountains and had great people watching.
The Taco Diner is an upscale but very affordable place. The taste, service, and presentation were all outstanding. Definitely somewhere we would go if and when we come back to Fort Worth.
