Restaurant review by guest writer Mandi Pimental of Nosh and Nurture
Each time you walk into Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse in Fort Worth, you know you are in for a treat. Whether meeting for work or pleasure, rich, warm wood architecture greets you as you step through the doors. While the restaurant can get quite busy on the weekends, and reservations are always preferred, on weeknights you can sometimes find a quiet, cozy corner. The bustling eatery features an exquisite wine room and impressive wine selection, as well as specialty cocktails such as a pear and cranberry martini that is crisp and cool when sipped alone or paired with the decadent dishes.

Del Frisco’s is a carnivore’s dream with a menu that features an array of steaks, poultry, seafood and lamb, in addition to their salads, sides and sweets.
After being greeted by an energetic and welcoming staff, my party and I sat down to drinks and salads, admiring the multi-level eatery that is detailed in iron and wood throughout. The appetizer menu is predominantly seafood, and though we prefer land to sea options, there is a beautiful Shanghai-styled calamari that is a popular pick. The Bleu Cheese Lettuce Wedge is as beautiful as it is tasty and was enjoyed by most of our party. I chose the Beefsteak Tomato and Sliced Onion salad as a dairy-free option and quite enjoyed its strong aroma and taste. (side note: for those with restricted diets, Del Frisco’s offers a wide selection of gluten-free and dairy-free options.)
For the main course, it was all about the filet mignon. This small but mighty cut of meat is a favorite of mine when done right, and Del Frisco’s delivers. The cut was tender, juicy and melted in your mouth like butter. Other favorites are their Bone-In Ribeye and the Pan-Roasted Chicken over Lemon Rice. For my side dishes, I chose the asparagus and a traditional baked potato, while others dined on the restaurants famed Chateau Potatoes and Jalapeno Bacon Mac and Cheese. Yes, seriously. Jalapeno. Bacon. Mac. And. Cheese.
Always save a little room, because what satisfying steak dinner is complete without a little sweet to end the evening? While I opted for a simple warm cup of coffee, the collective Ooh’s and Mm’s from around the table after sampling the creamy caramel cheesecake was enough to lull me into a post-dinner slumber.
