Breakfast and meals
I'd like to know where can I have both:
-lunchs and dinners
in the area near Houston Street?.
I'm searching for places with a good price. Please, specify if possible the approximate amount of money (in order to assess my budget).
Thanks in advance
Re: Breakfast and meals
Houston Street (in Fort Worth, there is also a Houston street in downtown Dallas) borders Sundance Square on one side. For great Mexican food and kick-ass margaritas DO NOT miss Mi Cocina. It is on Main Street, half a block south of Sundance Square.
Also, if you are bringing your wallet with you and in the mood for some red meat, you must go to Texas de Brasil. It is an all you can eat churrascaria and you will never forget your experience. Believe me...you will need to loosen your belt a notch or two before leaving.
I am not familiar with breakfast places in the area that you will be staying other than in the hotels. The Worthington, though expensive, has a decent brunch.
Also check out the Flying Saucer, which is right inside Sundance Square. They have like over 400 beers...many on tap.
Re: Re: Breakfast and meals
Locals line up outside the Paris Coffe Shop (Hemphill & Magnolia, just south of downtown) for great breakfast and killer pie. They close at 2 PM!
Also, the best burgers in the world are at Kincaid's on Camp Bowie Blvd. (just west of downtown). It's cash only -- and they close at 6 PM.
Travel Tips for Fort Worth
visit the Stockyards
There's lots to experience in the Stockyards: the Tarantula Train - A train from 1896 that travels between the Stockyards in Ft. Worth and Grapevine, Tx. Fares are a bit steep, but if you like trains, you might like this.
And, the Fort Worth Herd - See cowboys run a cattle herd right through the Stockyards. It goes twice daily. http://www.fortworthherd.com/ walking in the Stockyards - checking out all the Western themed stores, hanging out in various dusty saloons, and seeing cowboy shootouts in the middle of the street - there's a place for rodeos too.
Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering
I just happened to be in Fort Worth when this was happening, had no idea it was on or what it was all about. I just saw a crowd gathering at the stockyards and I asked. Later I found out what a huge annual event this was for young and old alike. This was certainly the most cowboy boots and hats on people I had seen in one place.
Here is one a lot of people tend to over look while in the area....it's dinosaur park down in Glen Rose, Texas. Now, I know this isn't exactly Fort Worth, but it's only about an 1 hour to 1 1/2 drive south and West of here. Your kids will have a great time exploring the area and you can get away from the city life. Even if it is just for the day. To learn more about this park, go to their website at: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/park/dinosaur/dinosaur.htm.
African American Clay Art
If you exit through the breezeway entrance at the Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) Station there are some depictions in clay of the history of African American businesses/life that existed at the site of the ITC between 1865 and 1940. There are five panels inset into the wall along the breezeway. Sculpted by artist Paula Blincoe Collins.
Located on the corner of 9th and Jones Streets. Address: 1001 Jones Street, Fort Worth 76102
La Plaza Shops
If you want a cheap souvenir t'shirt or a funny picture/saying t'shirt, then this is the place to go. Another store has just all sorts of souvenirs and clothing.
There is also some exquisite Turquoise jewellery here - very upmarket.
