High-energy Texas chef Tim Love's latest enterprise pays tribute to big animals and live fire. Beef, lamb, pork, goat, venison and other hooved game, assorted birds, seafood, and even sometimes vegetables are brought to cooked perfection with a variety of wood-fueled grills, ovens, and rotisseries (pecan, mesquite, hickory, and oak are burned). From crispy smoked Brussels sprouts and smoked beet and apple salad with goat cheese and toasted pecans to brisket-stuffed piquillo peppers, smoked turkey tamales, and classic smoked beef ribs, this is big food, in size, in flavor, in imagination. Truly serious eaters shouldn't miss the "dining with friends" options, including 16-hour smoked beef shin with fresh ricotta, chiles, smoked beans, and three-kale salad, or paella of mussels, clams, shrimp, rabbit-rattlesnake sausage, and game birds with fennel aïoli. -- Colman Andrews


  • Tim Love's shrine to smoked foods is a must-visit for out-of-towners; don't miss the camp bread with "pit master fat" or the brisket-stuffed piquillo peppers. [Eater 38 Member]
  • One of the coolest outdoor restaurant venues in Fort Worth
  • I don't agree with everyone I thought the food had a weird taste, few menu choices, and it was too hot and there was only outdoor seating. Only good thing was that it's by the river. Never again!
  • Order up the bourbon-/Coke-marinated pork shoulder tacos with pickled chilies. Seriously...just do it.
  • Great food, music and times... All on the Trinity River!
  • It's ok. Overrated and overpriced.
  • White Fish starter... that is all...
  • One of the coolest restaurants I've been to in Ft. Worth. Get a seat on the patio!
  • Ramen isn't exactly something you would expect to see at a barbecue restaurant, but leave it to Chef Tim Love to find a way to make it work.
  • Disappointing. A hipster's idea of BBQ.
  • Get here early to snag a seat on the patio! Highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich. And the patio is pet friendly...bonus!
  • Tries too hard to be trendy. Focus more on the execution. Poor service; outdoor heaters "busted" (waiter's term).
  • The smoked artichoke is awesome!!!
  • Only place in fort worth with Wine on Tap baby.
  • Get the ribs. They are so Damn good
  • Tim Loves Take on BBQ will leave your mouth watering, begging for more. Stick to the traditional meat and sandwich menu, that's where this place really shines. Excellent patio, K9 friendly.
  • In the face of a myriad of weird options, stick to the BBQ. It may be simple but it's also really good. Marks for the ribs in particular. If they have it, get a Deschutes Chainbreaker, super good IPA
  • Rib meat tamales. Yes. Please.
  • Pulled pork, ribs, chicken, brisket, hot links... All delicious Texas BBQ
  • Butcher block sandwich is a nice blend of what the Woodshed is about! Like most BBQ sandwiches, it comes with a tangy coleslaw to even out the smoky, yet spicy flavor of the sandwich.
