There are two things I seem to find when I travel: burgers and food trucks. There's something irresistible about food trucks that always have me coming back for more. I stopped by a few in Dallas and made it a point to hit a couple at the Taste of Chicago last summer. Today is all about Fort Worth though. There are plenty of places to eat but today I'm focusing on two specific spots. A Food Truck park outside of the city and a barbecue spot that I cannot get enough of.
Clearfork Food Park
Across from the Fort Worth Zoo on Trinity Trail is a small food park with a handful of trucks and an incredible view. From Mexican to barbecue and sweets, this outdoor spot has something for everyone. I opted for my typical choice of barbecue, but there were several other options to choose from I kind of wish I tried.
What's Cook-N Chef: Latin American food with an edge, What's Cook-N Chef has bowls, sandwiches, tacos and more that smell incredible. I only wish I managed to taste them as well. I'll be back in the area in a few short weeks and you bet I'm looking up where this truck will be next. I've been craving Latin food lately and this place would do the trick. Follow me on Instagram to stay up to date on my latest trips and food finds.
Rick's Smoke House BBQ: This is where I ordered from when we went here for lunch and it was fantastic. The BBQ pulled pork was some of the best I ever had and the fries had some kind of special seasoning that was addictive. If you see this truck driving around, I would recommend grabbing a bite whether you're hungry or not. Just save it for later if you must.
Life Is Sweet: For a little treat after lunch, the Life Is Sweet food truck has you covered. Grab an irresistible cupcake, brownie or ice cream sandwich. If you're feeling a little guilty about all the calories you're consuming in one afternoon, take a walk down the trail. It's gorgeous and a great way to burn off a few indulgences.
Riscky's is a barbecue joint in Sundance serving their own homemade barbecue sauce in old hot sauce and beer bottles. They've got an enormous menu so that everyone can find something. I always try to get something different when I visit because currently I've only been able to go about once a year. My latest choice, the Smoked Sausage Sandwich, is incredible. I love smoked sausage because it has a sweet element to it, almost like a hot dog but way better. Their fries are delicious and made to be dipped in the homemade barbecue sauce. If you eat nowhere else in Fort Worth, you have to try Riscky's. Oh...and Joe T. Garcia's for fajitas and unbeatable guacamole.
Do you have a favorite place to eat in Fort Worth? What about a favorite barbecue place? I'm always looking for new ones to try.
