Next I'll share a few of our favorite places to eat in the area.
You might want to have breakfast before touring the museums or stop for lunch after.
Everytime our son and his family come home from Missouri we have to have a big 'ole family dinner at Esperanza's.
This is the exact table we all gathered around on their last visit.
The food is great Tex-Mex. I have a few favorites. Everyone has thier own Fav's.
I always have a hard time deciding what to eat. If your a little
cautious in trying Tex-Mex you might try the nacho's they are probably the best around. I always want them but there are so many other great dishes it's hard to decide.
These are the steak fajita nachos. I always get just plain been and
cheese. So yummy! The soups are delicious too and authentic!
I've tried to duplicate. Just not in the works I need to be adopted.
Esperanza's and Joe T. Garcia's are family owned. The locals
refer to the later as just Joe T's. Joe's T's is only opened for
dinner and is very famous.
Esperanza's is located on Main St. and Joe T's is around the corner on a side street. Both are excellent choices for a great meal.

festive and fun experience. For locals it's kind a place for a special meal or party. Joe T's provides a wonderful autmosphere.
But we locals do have our favorites. And sometimes argue about which is best. I'll leave it to say they are all 'The Best'.
My Cowboy and our son vote for Esperanza's. My vote is for
another resturant just down the street.
I grew up going to El Rancho Grande it's a family favorite.
It began as a place to buy Tamale's. My parents would drive to
'town' on the weekend to pay the electric and gas bill. We would
stop at El Rancho Grande and buy tamales and eat them in the car on the drive. We also drank a Dr. Pepper. Lot's or memories have been shared at this place. And it has great food!
Oh those chips and taco shells. They are thin and crispy and you can only find them like this at El Rancho Grande!
I would be remiss if I didn't share one more local favorite. I have friends that love this place. I've been there maybe once or twice.
You know how it is when you have your favorites?
some of the historic homes in Fort Worth and a few surrounding areas. And, some other great places to eat!
I hope you'll come back for the tour!
