Fort Worth finally has its food hall, and what a destination it is. The Food Hall at Crockett Row is 16,000 square feet of delicious choices, with everything from cupcakes to poke, shawarma to seafood, pizza to elotes.
But, of course, it wouldn't be Texas without a barbecue joint. Not Just Q has transitioned from popular food truck to permanent eatery with the new food hall, and no doubt its hundreds of hungry fans will follow.
Founded by former TCU football star David Hawthorne and chef Eric Hansen, Not Just Q boasts a menu of barbecue, scratch-made sides, and other inventive dishes such as brisket nachos and tacos served with a Mexican slaw.
The 'cue will be equal opportunity, drawing from Carolina-style pulled pork, Kansas City burnt ends and ribs, and Texas brisket and sausage. Fort Worth-only exclusives and a monthly rotating feature chosen by customers will also be on the menu.
Watch Hansen discuss why Fort Worth was due for a new barbecue spot in the video above — and try not to drool.
