EAT LIKE A LOCAL

  • Located a couple blocks from Magnolia Ave. in the Near Southside, Paco & John's Mexican Diner may seem deceiving with its former convenience store facade, but inside, you'll find street tacos stuffed with red snapper; salmon enchiladas with chiles de arbol and shredded duck empanadas.
  • Kincaid's, a former grocery store along Camp Bowie's bricks is known for its Fort Worth history and the famous burgers.
  • Near the Cultural District, Railhead BBQ draws crowds for the smoked beef brisket, pork ribs, spicy sausage and signature French fries.
  •  Owner-chef Jon Bonnell woos the palate with elk loin tacos, pecan-crusted Texas redfish and peppered buffalo tenderloin at Bonnell's Fine Texas Cuisine.
  • Farm-to-market goodness shines in every dish crafted by chef-owner Molly McCook, at Ellerbe Fine Foods; be sure to try Maw Maw's Bread Pudding.
