    Riscky's has four restaurants near the stockyards - Ritas (Mexican), Riscky's Catch (fish), Riscky's Steak House, and Riscky's Barbecue. We were going to have BBQ that night, so we opted for the Steak House, and did not eat here, but the menu looks good.

    Riscky's Barbecue: Biggest Beef Ribs in Texas!

    by JamaicaBound Written Feb 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant started with Barbecue sandwiches, potato salad and cole slaw, and now has several locations in Fort Worth. Each location is small, except for the Stockyards location. Checkered tablecloths, rolls of paper towels instead of napkins, and huge servings of your favorite beef, pork, and chicken barbecue.

    Favorite Dish: Remember Fred Flintstone eating dinosaur ribs? The beef ribs at Riscky's are almost the same size! All-you-can-eat begins with 6 ribs and one side order; most people don't need more than the 1st six! Very tender and tasty, and definitely worth the price!

    Riscky's Bar-B-Q has good food. It is at at the Stockyards Station. The old station building has been divided in to quite a few little shops and places to eat. This old train is out in front.

    Favorite Dish: Any kind of barbeque is good.

  • Riscky's Barbecue: Great Food and Entertainment

    by grannygreat Written Apr 9, 2007

    The barbecue is great! The waitresses were good and friendly. We went on a few Sunday's because we like the food, but they also have an Elvis Gospel Show. The Elvis is Jeff Brett and he's the best we've every seen or heard!! That's what makes it special. It's really nice to dine and listen to gospel music. The people really seem to enjoy his show. We've tried several things on the menu and were pleased with it all.
    It also has outdoor dining for those who like to be outside. It's located next to the Thomas Kincaid Art Gallery, which is nice to go see the beautiful paintings.

    Favorite Dish: The barbecue and the ribs. They bring the sauce to your table warm and you can control the desired amount you use. The jalepano poppers are really good also. They have just the right amount of cheese stuffed inside and are not seasoned to hot. We've found the salads are great also and you get a sizeable amount.

    One of the handful of restaurants at the station and one of the many in the Riscky's chain. This one specialises in BBQ and I heard it is pretty good. The smell coming from it certainly was.
