When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American cuisine and seafood at the newly opened Rock Bottom.
Cultivating all-American cuisine and seafood, Rock Bottom sates the thirsty hearts of local residents and nearby TCU students with a variety of bar-food favorites, high-end entrees, and a sprawling tap line of frothy brews. Start a tasty trek with fresh hand-breaded calamari ($8.99) or a hearty order of Rock Bottom layer dip, a reflection of the earth's sedimentary layers by ways of homemade guac, pico de gallo, black beans, and queso ($7.69). Hunger pangs hush in the presence of chicken-fried steak, hand-breaded and fried to crispy resistance ($10.99). The Big Bottom burger—a colossal double stack of juicy beef named for the slightly larger circumference of the bottom patty—fills stomachs with a meatberg of love ($10.99).
Flat-screen TVs line the Rock’s lively interior, and a spacious patio highlights plenty of sun-soaked, open-air seating options. Rock Bottom is open daily for lunch and dinner and features weekly specials, live music, and a late-night menu specifically designed for lonely security guards.
The Bottom has plenty of Fort Worth pride. The multiple flat-screen TVs attract flocks of TCU students and fans on game days, and the menu itself has items that pay homage to the fearsome Horned Frogs. There are the purple beer and the Polliwog: a frozen concoction named after the Old English term for a tadpole and made with secret ingredients that can only be revealed if the blender is kissed by a princess. Also in the bar, 35 taps represent breweries from nearby and afar, including Rahr & Sons, Shiner, Saint Arnold, and Stone.
In addition to the bar, this family-owned, community-oriented restaurant offers something for everyone. Saturday and Sunday brunch entice local families to stop by this neighborhood eatery. Outside, guests can unwind on the spacious patio and enjoy gigantic burgers and Southwestern apps and entrees amid leafy palms at tables in both the shade and the sun.
