Panther City BBQ

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Fort Worth is known as “Panther City,” which comes from a strange legend that started in 1875 -- that Fort Worth is a sleepy Dallas suburb. So sleepy, in fact, that a panther took a nap downtown and it went practically unnoticed. It’s a weird story and also kind of an insult, but the city took it up and ran with it. These days, Panther City BBQ embraces that weirdness with their creative takes on barbecue. While they are celebrated for their classic staples like brisket, jalapeno sausage, and pork ribs, it’s their more inventive items like pork belly jalapeño poppers that help them stand out as the city’s new favorite barbecue joint. With their new brick-and-mortar location in the Near Southside, it’s the perfect time to try their brisket elote and smoked bologna on their shaded patio full of picnic tables.
