Whether you’re visiting Fort Worth on a per diem budget or you’re just wanting to get a little more for your money, we have some suggestions for how to eat more and spend less!

Sundance Square/Downtown

Yolk Fort Worth serves up larger-than-your stomach breakfast items, but most will have you spending at least $20 after coffee and juice. Order a la carte and opt for a bagel and cream cheese or a cup of yogurt, both only $3.


You might be surprised that most of Reata Restaurants lunch menu items cost less than $13. You can go lighter with a Trio platter (your choice of salad, fruit, and a scoop of chicken salad) or pick the lunch size carne asada and cheese enchilada (sort of a fancy Mexican grilled cheese with a side of steak).


Bailey's Barbecue is a hidden gem in downtown known only by locals. Open 5 days a week, Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., this mom-and-pop shop has been cranking out delicious BBQ for decades. The brown-bag special is their game, and the lunch combo comes with a barbecue sandwich of your choice, a bag of chips and drink for $7.


When you can't splurge on a fancy dinner but still want to feel fancy all the same, head on over to Grace. This fine dining restaurant in downtown is signature to Fort Worth and serves up a daily Bubble Hour from 4-6 p.m. with half-price bubbles by the glass. Cheers!
