This area of Fort Worth is chock full of fun things to see and do! There is a daily cattle run, rodeo on Friday and Saturday, a ton of bars with live music and dancing, western shops, and much more!
The highlight of this area for me was Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que! First off the smell when you walk into this place is amazing! About ten feet inside the door, you are greeted by a grill master minding the biggest barbecue I've ever seen with at least twenty varieties of pork, chicken and beef cuts to choose from. They are famous for their pork chops, so I opted for a small pork chop and a small beef rib. Now, mind you, when I say small, I mean big! The portions are very large, so it's the perfect place to get several things and share them amongst a group because everything has a distinct flavor and is cooked to perfection! They offer massive baked potatoes and you can choose your fixins in the form of handy little plastic containers. They have butter, cheddar cheese, bacon bits, sour cream, and more! After you get your meat, you move through to the next station where they weigh and price your meat. It's sold by the pound. They have potato salad, jalapeno bacon mac & cheese, and four kinds of cobbler! I got the blackberry, and it was heavenly!
Another bonus was that they had a live band performing county music in their back room. We ate at wooden picnic tables while we listened to great music. The band was a tro who performed a range of original music, country standards, blues, and of course, Mr. Brooks' Rodeo. It was the perfect place to relax and veg out after working! I highly recommend this BBQ heaven!
Additionally, the Rodeo at the Stockyards is very entertaining for a great price. Also after hours, the bars really heat up with live music and two-stepping. If you want some down home fun, this is the area to be!
