On the road

Chow down in Cowtown

After all, a trip is only as good as the food you eat there.

When I met my husband eight years ago, I was living in Fort Worth, working for Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association as associate editor and social media manager for The Cattleman magazine.

Since we got married in 2010 and I subsequently moved to his hometown of Electra (population 2,722), people will frequently ask if I miss the big city.

The answer is always the same: No. I’m much better suited for life in the boonies, and the view outside my office window these days — Angus cows — sure beats the skyscrapers.

But there is one thing I do miss. The restaurants. Fort Worth is home to some of my favorite eating establishments in the country. There truly is something for everyone — especially beef lovers like us.

Since so many of you will be visiting Fort Worth this weekend for Angus Convention, we’ve pulled together a list of our brand partners in the general vicinity of the Fort Worth Convention Center. Because no doubt one of the biggest perks of being in the big city is getting a chance to eat at some of the restaurants featuring the high-quality beef you work hard to raise.
