Woodshed, one of Chef Tim Love’s creations, is nestled along the Trinity River in Fort Worth, Texas. It has an industrial cabin look, using wood and metal elements to invite you into their well designed eatery. The patio scene is always happening, especially when the Texas weather allows for the live band to play an accoustic set. It is the perfect combination to please all of your senses! The sound of the band, the smell of the wood burning kitchen (Woodshed uses a combination of Hickory, Oak, Mesquite and Pecan wood) and the taste of their amazing Texas-inspired roasted and grilled menu. To make things better, Woodshed is eco-friendly. Their use of paper napkins, paper plates or glass bottles are non-existent! All of their flatware/smallware is reusable and washable, down to the cloth (wind resistant) napkins.
on my plate: Crispy Potatoes with Garlic Aioli, Smoked Whitefish Dip, Today’s Tamales, Bulgogi Beef tacos, Bourbon and Coke Pork “Bahn Mi”, Beef and Pork Ribs and Mexican Corn. (Don’t judge! We were hungry!)
FOUR PRONG FORK REVIEW:
Service: Great | Reservations: Strongly Recommended | Parking: Street Parking/Valet | Price: $$
– GOOD TO KNOW –
Reservations are strongly recommended. The place gets packed (especially during TCU home games) so play it safe and make a reservation. Also, Woodshed is eco-friendly, as we mentioned above. But… that also means they do not have a central AC unit. If you have lived in Texas AT ALL, you know that means… hot and very humid weather! So… try to sit near one of their large fans or in a shaded area. Otherwise, you may start to slowly cook like those ribs you are about to eat!
