The Frogs O’ War Fort Worth Food Bracket
We’re looking for the best restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas the only way we know: bracket style. Below you can find a selection of 64 of the best restaurants in Funkytown. You’ll also likely find that I’ve removed your favorite place to eat from our list. That’s okay, yell at me in the comments. I can take that.
We have divided the quadrants into four groups: Southwest, Mexican, Burgers / Pizza and Deli’s / Diners / Miscellaneous. I did it this way, rather than randomly or by location, because I felt that in order to get a venue out of any restaurant it should compete against similar venues in terms of the type of food served. But without further ado, here is the bracket. I know it’s hard to read so I’ve listed the first round matchups in each region. You can visit each region by scrolling down.

This region, along with the Mexican region, was the two groups with the most venues to choose from and you responded with tons of options for the Southwest region. It was difficult to make a cut at every point and I know someone goes crazy when something is left out or when it comes to sowing, but everything will be fine. There should be some interesting similarities as we go through this section.
# 1 The Woodshed vs. # 16 Shady Oak BBQ
No. 2. Angelos vs. No. 15 The BBQ Ranch
No. 3 Cattlemen’s Steakhouse versus No. 14 Michaels Restaurant and Ancho Chile Bar
No. 4 Railhead versus No. 13 Clay Pigeon
No. 5 Reata versus No. 12 Texas De Brazil
No. 6 Lonesome Dove vs. No. 11 Vidalia’s Southern Cuisine
No. 7 cousins versus No. 10 Grace
No. 8 Riscky’s vs. No. 9 The Reservoir
“Mexican” in this sense is a broad term that includes Tex-Mex, Mex-Mex, Latin, and so on. I entrusted some of these to people who replied on Twitter as I haven’t eaten in any of these places. But this is also the bracket I am most convinced of about how I sowed them all (which means very little, I probably screwed it up).
No. 1. Original Mexican Eats Cafe versus No. 16 Enchiladas Ole
No. 2 Joe T. Garcias vs. No. 15. The Asadero
No. 3 Benitos vs. No. 14 Esperanza
No. 4 Lemon Sauce vs. No. 13. Chimneys
No. 5 The Family vs. No. 12 The Molcajetes
No. 6 Fuzzy’s versus No. 11 Uncle Julio’s
No. 7 Melis Taqueria versus No. 10 Yucatan Taco Stand
No. 8 Mariposa versus No. 9 Tortilandia
Burger / pizza region
I already know I will be yelled at for how I sowed things in this region. I tried to get pizza versus pizza and burger versus burger in the first round (there is one matchup that failed) but it affected how I seeded things. Everyone will survive, it will be fine.
No. 1 Rodeo Goat vs. No. 16 Whataburger
No. 2 Dutch versus No. 15 Tommy’s Grill
No. 3 Love Shack versus No. 14 Perrotti’s Pizza
No. 4 Red Dog vs. No. 13 Palios Pizza
No. 5 Kinkaids versus No. 12 Jakes
No. 6 Mommy’s Pizza versus No. 11 Pizza Snob
No. 7 Fred’s vs. No. 10 M&O station
No. 8 Mellow Mushroom vs. No. 9 Buffalo Bros.
Deli / Diners / Other Region
I had the hardest time with this region as it is the region that I have visited the least. So i’m sorry. In this region between King Tut and East Hampton Sandwich Co. there is a play-in game for the 11-Seed.
No. 11 King Tut versus No. 11 East Hampton Sandwich Company
No. 1 Bonnell’s versus No. 16 Szechuan
# 2 Vickery Blvd Cafe versus # 15 Chadra Mezza
No. 3 Spiral Diner against No. 14 Lucile’s
No. 4 Flying Fish vs. No. 13 Cafe Modern
No. 5 Grandma Nanny vs. No. 12 Cafe Bella
No. 6 brewed against No. 11 King Tut / East Hampton
No. 7 Yogi’s Deli versus No. 10 Carshon’s Deli
No. 8 Lili’s vs. No. 9 Old Neighborhood Grill
