I'm vegan...so, of course...I'm going to suggest the only vegan restaurant in Fort Worth. Spiral Diner on the corner of 6th and Magnolia. They have the BEST food! You will enjoy it even if you are not a vegetarian/vegan...and, their brownies are to die for! You can Google "Spiral Diner" to find more information!

For good fast food (I know that sounds like an oxymoron), I like eating at Freebirds (http://www.freebirds.com/fast/intro.htm - broken link) near the Hulen Mall. It's in the same parking lot as Bed Bath & Beyond there. They serve burritos.

I'm not sure where you're coming from or what your experience has been, but we just moved here from SoCal so southern food is new to us. We've been to Zazzoo's on Bryant Irvin off the 20 a couple of times and had aligator tails (yes, the real thing!) and crawfish.

tamales appitizers are unique---chocolate dessert is too die for...
--they have vegetarian offerings for those who abstain from meat...views from this location are not the wonderful ones of the old one destroyed by tornado several years ago but they made the inside of the restaurant so pleasant the views take a backseat to food...whe you make reservation tell them it is your first time into FTW and Reatta--they will try to find you a good table from our experience dealing with them--had our daughter's engagement/birthday party in one of their private rooms--they were just really nice to work with...

Angelo's is the go-to BBQ in FTW---lots of tradition and good meat...not a clone---there is only one angelo's--

Personally, I find the food at Joe T. Garcia's pretty mediocre...the patios are nice and the margaritas vary in strength and quality...noisy usually..
interesting to note that Joe T's which used to rank in top 3 for alcohol sales in Tarrant co each year has slipped in ratings--Uncle Julio's off 30 is now top seller in FTW...so maybe people's tastes are shifting....

Might try the new burger place that Tim Love w/Lonesome Dove has started in Stockyards...

Cafe Ashton is little bit cosmo and upscale

There is Indian restaurant called Maharaja off Hulen Bend which is off the sw side of the 820 loop and close to west side of town....but i found that doing google search--don't know anything about it....

Since you will be doing house hunting west of town--you might like to know that there is BBQ place in Weatherford called Mesquite Pit that is on HWY 180 going into Weatherford--not I-20....might be good for lunch...or the Brazos River Catfish Cafe--This Old House off Main St is tea room w/quiche, salads, and sandwiches...Found these by Googling as well...
If your realtor is based out of FTW, he or she may not know anything about places to eat in Weatherford or Aledo...either...chains may be predictable but that can be a safety factor as well....

Where is Railhead BBQ? We went to Angelos and it was okay, but I must just have a different taster for bbq than everyone else My hubby and Mom loved it, I just like mine a little more spicy and peppery.
