Fort Worth is home to seemingly unlimited opportunities for the athlete in your family –– whether the sport is soccer, track, dance, rodeo or roping. If you’re in town for a competition or game, here are some dining opportunities near six local sports complexes.
The Westside location puts Game On in reach of a score of fast food restaurants. Local options Woody Creek BBQ near Ridgmar Mall, Wild Acre Camp Bowie and Fuego Burger are all up the road. Travel a little farther and you’ll find that Campisi’s Italian Restaurant and Little Lilly Sushi as well as iconic treasures like Edelweiss German Restaurant and The Lunch Box all within a few miles of this complex.
Fort Worth ISD’s public field sits, literally, in the middle of our Cultural District, which means that your access to excellent eats is almost guaranteed. A short walk up University Drive to Crockett Row at West 7th and the surrounding streets, and you’ll find Rodeo Goat, the original Fred’s Texas Café, and the Crockett Row Food Hall, packed with options.
Steel City Pops will provide the treats for your team. Farrington Field’s parking lot also serves as extra parking for events like Mayfest and on the weekends for the restaurants around the area. You can also reserve the lot for overflow bus parking by contacting the FWISD.
