Most of the meals consumed at the Fort Worth Stock Show are of the “grab a corndog or cinammon roll” variety.
But there are a few places where visitors made hungry by the enticing aromas from the numerous food stands can have a sit-down meal with table service.
One of the most popular such spots is Reata at the Rodeo, the Stock Show branch of the famous downtown eatery located in the Amon G. Cater Exhibits Hall.
The 30-table restaurant offers a scaled down, but still extensive, menu that includes appetizers, 10 entries ranging from $10 to $36, a trio of desert options that includes a Bread Pudding Tamale and a list of wines available by the glass or bottle.
But before you drop by to enjoy a steak and a bottle of wine, such as the Chimney Rock cabernet sauvignon that goes for $150, be aware that there can sometimes be a wait for a table.
"On the Saturdays that have triple rodeos, it can get really crazy,” said hostess Kelsey Miller.
