|About these ratings|
Those in the know insist a visit to Fort Worth wouldn't be complete without a heel-stomping good time at Billy Bob's Texas, the world's largest honky-tonk. Occupying some prime real-estate in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, this three-acre entertainment center is home to 40 separate bar stations, not to mention an arcade, a bull-riding ring and a Texas-sized dance floor lit by a disco ball-esque rhinestone saddle. Forget your cowboy hat? Just pick one up at the on-site Western store.
Billy Bob's Texas is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. Live entertainment is provided most nights; famed musicians take the stage Friday and Saturday (you should purchase tickets in advance). Dance lessons are also available from Fort Worth's beloved instructor, Wendell Nelson.
