It’s the biggest food event of the year for food lovers in Fort Worth. DFW Restaurant Week provides diners the chance to try a three-course meal at over 150 participating restaurants in the DFW area for $39 or $49 per person. (Tax and gratuity are not included, beverages and wine pairings also not included.)
Participating restaurants donate twenty percent of each meal to either the North Texas Food Bank or the Lena Pope Home. Over the years, some restaurants embraced the concept and extend their Restaurant Week menus to the whole month. This is the 22nd year for Restaurant Week!
Restaurant Week happens from August 5-11. Several restaurants will continue their special three course menus through August 18, 25 or even Labor Day. It’s best to check the official DFW Restaurant list website to confirm these dates. Some restaurants even offer a lunch option for $25. If you have further questions, check out their FAQ.

Beginning July 9, spend $10 or more at any FedEx Office location in DFW to receive a Fourth Course Certificate at the register with your qualifying receipt.
