Opened in 2000, The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, located in Fort Worth's Historic Stockyards District, has quickly become the city's premiere dining establishment.

Chef & Owner Love has designed a menu influenced by all of the ingredients and cultures that have been a part of the West since the first adventure began on the Goodnight-Loving & Chisholm trails - with an added level of modern sophistication.


Items on the Lonesome Dove Bistro menu range from an inventive selection of steaks and seafood to dishes such as Wagyu Tomahawk, Kangaroo Carpaccio, Rocky Mountain Elk Ribeye, Wild Boar, and Rabbit & Rattlesnake.

"Under the direction of Love, the Iron Chef star and native Texan, the result is intelligently conceived food executed with top-notch technique. Now into its second decade, Lonesome Dove is confidently turning out a worldly cuisine that could come from nowhere else."

Dallas Morning News

Restaurant review: The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro (4 stars)

"If it moves, Tim Love can cook it. The menu at his Stockyards bistro features rattlesnake, kangaroo and elk, among other game delicacies. Love's a hard-core cowboy cook and one of the few chefs to ever take down Iron Chef Morimoto in Kitchen Stadium."

"The roasted, garlic-stuffed beef tenderloin is the stuff of every Texan's dreams, and the single best steak in Fort Worth"

BUD Kennedy - FW Star-Telegram

Bud Kennedy's picks for great steaks in the Stockyards and beyond

"Celebrity chef and cookbook author Tim Love evokes the trail-drive era with cowhide throw rugs, raw brick walls, and the 19th-century-style molded tin roof of his bustling restaurant in the historic Stockyards District. But the cuisine, widely regarded as Fort Worth's best, isn't something you're likely to find on the chuckwagon."

Editor's Pick

"Tim Love takes pioneer-inspired home cooking to another level, nay, another planet, with Lonesome Dove, where the roasted garlic-stuffed tenderloin will change your life."

Eater Dallas

The 38 Essential Dallas Restaurants, April 2012

"Diners declare themselves "blown away" by celebrity chef-owner Tim Love's terrific modern takes on cowboy cuisine at his "chic" Southwestern set on the edge of the Ft. Worth Stockyards."


2012 America's Top Restaurants

"Chef-owner Tim Love has brought culinary credibility not just to the Stockyards but to the city. The Dove stands as one of the area’s strongest expressions of high-end Texas-style dining, with steak and game, salsas and mole, and Texas quail quesadillas."
