Marty B’s in Bartonville
A pretty well done over BBQ place in the middle of nowhere. This local restaurant quickly became successful not only because of their great food, but also because of the atmosphere, great staff, live music, and involvement in the local community.
While you’re there, sit around the outdoor fire pit, take roping lessons, or sit outdoors. This place is so much FUN!
I once asked one of the bartenders to surprise me with a cocktail and he served me up a “Bluebonnet Lemon-drop Martini.” I have no idea if it’s actually on their menu or not, but ask for it because it was amazing! We have nothing but nice things to say about Marty B’s.

Angelo’s Barbecue in Fort Worth
With great service and an friendly environment, Angelo’s needs to go on your list of best BBQ places in Dallas Fort Worth.
When Angelo first opened the restaurant, there were only four dining tables, a stand-up table and an ordering counter, which added up to as much of a beer joint as a restaurant.
He operated his business with his wife, June, his brother, Orville, who passed away in 1984, and his son, Skeet. When Angelo passed away in 1997, at the age of 71, he and his son Skeet had built the business into the renowned and thriving gathering spot it is today.
“Dad’s hard work and determination put this place on the map,” said Skeet George, who grew up in and later took over the barbecue business. “He wanted to leave a viable business for his family, but what he actually left is a legacy for us and for Fort Worth.”
Angelo’s BBQ, 2533 White Settlement Rd, Fort Worth, Texas, 76107, (817) 332-0357, angelosbbq.com
