Barrel & Bones Craft Bar and Smokehouse has been open for just over a month now, and I have read some great reviews about the food, and now it’s my turn. If you know anything about its location in the Montgomery Plaza, then you know it’s famous for restaurants not lasting long. Barrel & bones will be the eighth restaurant to try to succeed in this location. There is something different about it this time, and that is Barrel & Bones is only taking half of the space, the other portion will be used by its sister restaurant, Bourbon Street Oyster Bar & Grill, according to their Facebook page the bar opens at 3 pm each day with the kitchen opening at 4 pm.
For lunch today, I ate the two meat plate with a side dish. I went with the sliced brisket, jalapeno sausage & jalapeno coleslaw. The brisket had a nice looking smoke ring and was tender with just enough smoke flavor; it’s a must-have when eating barbecue. Next up is the jalapeno sausage. This sausage is the best jalapeno sausage that I have ever tasted. The char they put on the links enhances the flavor profile like no other. Now for the jalapeno coleslaw, I was expecting this coleslaw to have a bit of heat; however, it didn’t. The coleslaw was excellent. It’s not a thick mayonnaise-based slaw its shredded watery slaw. Again it had a good flavor, I wanted it to be spicy, and it wasn’t at all.
Overall this is a must-try barbecue spot in Fort Worth, Texas; I can’t wait to come back and try more of the food. Barrel & Bones is at 2600 W. Seventh St. No. 153, Fort Worth
