5 Cheap Restaurants in Fort Worth

1. Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Dishes

Stop in for lunch at Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Dishes. Order the chicken-fajitas ($8.50, cash or checks only), and soak up the lively, Old Mexico, cantina-esque atmosphere for which this local institution
is known. Scan the many framed autographed photos of celebrities who’ve eaten here, such as Tiger Woods, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Bette Midler.
Open for lunch and dinner daily. Find on map.

2. Curly’s Frozen Custard

Pull into Curly’s Frozen Custard for a little something sweet (cones or cups, $1.50-$4) and sit right outside at a picnic table. Find on map.

3. Hot Damn, Tamales!

Squeeze into the tiny dining area that only seats 15 people, and order the tamale plate ($7), which comes with a choice of three kinds of tamales, rice, beans, chips, and salsa. Owner Ione Stavron makes 11
different varieties that lift humble tamales to new heights of flavor. The most popular kinds are beef tenderloin, beer-and-jalapeño, and a vegetarian wild-mushroom-and-Texas-goat-cheese concoction.
Open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Find on map.

4. Hunter Brothers’ H3 Ranch
