Much like tacos, you can’t think of Texas without immediately thinking of barbecue, and Heim Barbecue is one of the best options for smoked meats in Fort Worth. And Heim’s newest location, right next to the Trinity River, has plenty of space to spare - quite the opposite of the small side patio at their Magnolia Avenue location. Here you can grab a seat on their expansive covered patio or a picnic table on their open-air green space. For meats, we recommend the chopped brisket and bacon burnt ends. For sides, the onion rings and green chile mac and cheese are a must. The burger is tasty, too.
