This is a fun little place with delicious hamburgers tucked away in the Stockyards. Tim Love is an awesome chef and the hamburgers here are no exception. There is often live music and when you combine live music with a great patio and yummy food...what's not to love?

The food is great, but the the environment is as far from family friendly as possible. Complete garbage seating. It's in the sun, everything is cigarette smokey, the kids fell on the rickety wood bench. Stay away if you have a family, don't like cigarettes, or want comfort.

Our group was left for five hours here and we all managed to end up here! It was really fun listening to the Texan guitarist, while enjoying our beer ($4.75-not bad for a captive audience). All I could see was beer or wine. Burgers etc looked appetising. Nice place to chat to visitors. ENJOY!

This is a cute idea, but they don't serve mixed drinks, so you have to be OK with beer or wine. The live music on a Saturday afternoon was a plus, but the establishment was not crowded, and yet there was not sufficient seating for the 4 of us. The up side is, because it's open air, it wasn't as... More

Fort Worth has an open container policy so you can walk around and shop with booze. We stopped here during our shopping run. With tap beer you get a free souvenir cup too! Super fun name and fun place to stop at.

Average burger with meat from Sysco Buckhead. Decent quality meat but expected more from an Iron chef I guess with all the great beef in TX. Cash only. Why would anyone put curry in a pickle for a burger?! Weird and Gross! Filthy dirty restaurant. Almost left when we saw the 3 cats at our feet. Could not eat upstairs... More

My husband and I each had the Dirty Love Burger and fries. The love sauce and quail egg were good but we were confused about the actual hamburger patty. I was surprised to find an eerie similarity to the bulk frozen patties you find in a wharehouse store. Dry, flavorless and chewy hamburger patty covered up with dressed up thousand... More

Knew Tim Love had a burger place somewhere in the stockyards but not where and we happened upon it by chance. small place mostly outside seating but the burgers where YUMMY. My mom and sister both had the kraut dog and they raved too. Large fries will feed 3 lol... very cheap and delish.

The burgers were good. You'll find an interesting assortment. Enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, but you may be cold if the weathers not good.

Don't forget to bring cash as this is the only form of payment they accept. Great burgers and hand cut fries. Cheap cold beer accompanied by wonderful live music starting at noon on Saturdays. This is a great venue with such a unique set-up (completely outdoors, wedged in between buildings & built up several floors) Good on cold or warm... More
