LYD Recommends: Come hungry, really hungry, because H3 will serve you Texas-sized portions from the Dinner Menu and even if you’re stuffed to the gills, just make sure there’s still room for dessert! Grab a steak knife and a Buffalo Butt Beer and you’ll be ready supper!
Forth Worth, Texas is known for all kinds of boot-scooting fun, but best known as a gateway to the Old West. If you truly fancy a trip back to learn the western heritage that Texas is known for the world over, then Ft. Worth is the place to go! And if Ft. Worth is “where the west begins” then the Hunter Brothers’ H3 Ranch is where westerners can corral for classic cowboy grub! H3 Ranch Steakhouse is centrally located in the historic district of Fort Worth and a stride away from the famous Ft. Worth Stockyards. H3 represents the cattle brand of the three Hunter brothers, Robert, William, and David, who traversed the Atlantic from Scotland across America to the Great Wide West to finally settle in Nebraska during the 1800s. The Brothers helped organize Texas’ first railway shipment of cattle to market and founded a livestock commission that experienced a great level of success. The descendants of the Hunter family established the H3 Ranch in Ft. Worth in 1998 and it has been going strong ever since! H3 Ranch is an upscale saloon-style restaurant adjoined to the historic Stockyards Hotel which has been accommodating cowboys and cowgirls for over a century. The H3 Steakhouse has a very unique ambiance that includes saddle stools to rest your weary legs, restin’ hooks for your Stetson, big game animals on the walls, quotable cowboy quips, a hoppin’ bar scene, and if you turn your gaze to the ceiling you can notice the fans that operate on an old-fashioned pulley system. When you find yourself in the legendary tavern district next to the stockyards known as “Hell’s Half Acre”, mosey on up to the bar and rest your tired-some spurs while drinkin’ Texas brewed beer! Order a bucket of Buffalo Butt Beer, an amber lager named to “commemorate the posterior of the prairie's most majestic beast”. A refreshing beverage ready to relax those ranchers after a hard days work in the fields. Another original is H3’s one-of-a-kind Anita-Rita margarita, named after William Hunter’s daughter Anita, is one of the more popular drinks in the Acre stilled with premium tequila and jalapeno extract.
If you’re looking to fill your belly after quenching your thirst, then it’ll be time for you to order some good ol’ fashioned grubbin’! H3 delivers an extensive menu from world famous steaks to fish to the American favorite, chicken fried steak! For this trail ride, start off with Nine Miles of Dirt Road--a unique appetizer that starts with fresh sour cream, guacamole, piled with refried beans, sprinkled with pico de gallo, chopped onion, and shredded American cheese, served in a warm cast iron skillet with thinly cut tortilla chips. H3 shares complimentary doughy sour dough bread with a creamy, whipped butter that seeps into the bread! The H3 Menu is designed for the carnivore with cracked pepper rubbed and roasted meats that deliver juiciness with every bite. H3 entices each eater with an array of steak cuts--rib eye, Texas t-bone, strip, porterhouse, sirloin, prime ribs, and fliet Mignon! Succulent, tender meats cooked on a live hickory grill in the main room which ensures your cut of meat is cooked exactly right! The grill is like sitting around the camp fire on the western plains after the ranchers were done with their trail rides. Each steak is served with the standard baked potato, roasted ear of corn or a House salad, but a substitution can be made for the side items, so H3 can get you everything that you’re craving. Also available are “Cowtown Favorites”, Smoked Sirloin Steaks, H3’s Famous Ribs, Prime Rib, and Word-Fired Steaks with Spit-Roasted Pig and Chicken, Chicken Fried Steak, Alaskan King Crab, and other Char-Grilled sea options. There are well-cooked pieces of meat for every one’s own tastes!
