Fort Worth is steeped in tradition, and to our delight, dining out in Fort Worth is one of the most pleasurable traditions of all. Those of us who enjoy apartment living in Fort Worth, Texas need to have faithful standbys when it comes to good but affordable dining options. We’ve assembled a partial list of some of the most well-established eateries in town. Each has its own rich and unique history, each has forged a Cow Town tradition that brings dining out to a whole new level without breaking the bank. Ask anyone who’s grown up in these parts and they will tell you; these are the places that rate 5-stars among Ft. Worth natives.
Deli/Bakery: Swiss Pastry Shop Serving breakfast and lunch with a full menu since 1973 and located not far from home on West Vickery. Just about every type of deli sandwich is to be found at the Swiss Pastry Shop along with wurst plates and absolutely delectable pastry/bakery fare.
Ribs: Angelo’s BBQ Family owned and operated since 1958, Angelo’s is one of a kind and hands down–the best ribs you’ll ever eat (and they serve up the coldest beer in town). The food is not just good here, it’s legendary.
Mexican: Joe T.Garcia’s A family success story that began in 1935 is located on the edge of downtown Fort Worth on North Commerce. Be prepared to be patient with the wait as sometimes the lines can stretch around the block. Yes, the food is that good. Also take cash–no credit cards are accepted.
Hamburgers: Kincaid’s Original Camp Bowie Location In 1964, Kincaid’s Grocery and Meat Market started cooking hamburgers and the rest is history. The beef is range fed, antibiotic free and cut and ground fresh each day. Although there is a Kincaid’s in the Hulen area on Overton Ridge, there’s nothing like a nostalgic lunch at the original location on Camp Bowie.
Seafood: Zeke’s Fish and Chips This establishment has been serving up the best New England style seafood for over 40 years. Not to worry though, if you prefer, they also have a full menu of sandwiches. My favorite is the peel and eat boiled shrimp by the pound. It’s also not too far away; off Camp Bowie on Curzon.
