I-30 TO FT. WORTH HEADS UP
« Reply #18852 on: September 06, 2016, 12:27:39 pm »

Just a heads up to Central Arkansas fans - was driving to Dallas yesterday from central Arkansas and there is about a 15 mile stretch of I-30 just east of Fulton that's experiencing significant road construction. If you are headed down for TCU or A&M in a few weeks, you'll probably want to add an extra 30 to 45 minutes to your plan if you are planning on dinner plans, etc in the DFW area Friday night. It's also pretty bad on the eastbound side as well, for your return trip. We sat in standstill traffic for 30+ minutes.

The downtown Dallas 30/35E mixmaster is also still a cluster. You'll still probably be better off going through it rather than diverting westbound on 635 but you might give your map app a look when you're getting close to Rockwall or so.

Hope everyone has a safe trip down!

We always hit the 635 Bypass when we go back and forth to Ark cause it just some much faster and easier for us to get home.

We are going to the game and will be tailgating with a TCU alum. Here is what he said re: parking:

"If you are driving to the game and parking we suggest parking across University (its a street, on the right of the map below) from the stadium. There are various lots on that side of campus and lots of street parking as well, just remember the earlier you arrive the better chance you have at getting a spot. TCU is very good about putting an officer in front of lots that you are not allowed to park in. Some lots have controlled access, the rule has always been 'if the arm is up, you are safe' just be smart about it. The walk across campus cannot be any longer than 10 minutes. I realize buildings are not labeled but around the Robert Carr Chapel and around Lowden Street there should be some spots to park. You also want to be on this side once the game is over, as traffic moves much faster over here.

I have been to a game at TCU. Not a bad seat in the house! I would suggest East of campus in the neighborhoods and walk across campus or south of the stadium towards the intramural and baseball fields. That is a big parking/tailgating area.

If you haven't been to Joe T's go out and sit in the gardens there prior to the game. It's a must do. Some other good spots are Dutch's Burgers (across from TCU), Buffalo Bros (also across from TCU), Yucatan Taco Stand, Reata (roof top), Bird Cafe, Flying Saucer, La Familia, Chimy's, etc. Hope this helps. Those are all spots I like.

Here is the official gameday parking website from TCU:

http://www.gofrogs.com/gameday/parking.html

If you are not planning on tailgating or have friends/family with a tailgating spot, then some of these park and rides at churches and Paschal High School are very convenient.

Paschall High School ($15) borders the far east part of campus while the stadium is on the far west part of campus.  It is probably a 20-25 minute walk through campus from the high school to the stadium.  You could also park here and take the shuttle to the stadium.

You can always look around the neighborhoods and park on the street.  I usually have pretty good luck near the baseball stadium/ track complex.  You can also try the neighborhoods south of berry and east/west of University.

Let me know if you have any questions.

TCU campus is super small... Parking anywhere on the East side of campus (S. University Dr.) will give you about a 10 minute walk at the max.

I could be over estimating walk times a bit. Paschall to the stadium is probably right about a mile.

I agree with you that our campus is very small, and if you can get a spot close to campus on the east side of university you should be fine.  Most of these streets fill up very early, and many of them have started restricting parking on gamedays with temporary no park signs.  It is definitely not as easy as it used to be to find free super convenient parking.

To your point, if people are looking for free parking, they can probably drive around campus for about 15 minutes to find a parking space with a reasonable walk.

Freds off bluebonnet is good place and kid friendly. Non-smoking great food and plenty of televisions.  I go.there frequently. Know the manager well.  Will actually be a Steeler watch party location this year as well.

If you want a great mexican meal without the glamor, try El Asedero, 1535 n. Main. St.  It is between Stockyards and downtown.  You won't be disappointed.  I could drink their salsa.

If you can get to the stockyards, get you a burger from "The Love Shack." It's Time Love's little burger bar that is 50/50 filet and brisket. Get you a love burger with a quail egg, bacon, cheese, and "love sauce."  Fine dining is around the corner at Lonesome Dove, really good food. A lot of people love Joe T Garcias for tex-mex. The limited menu is just average, but the setting (patio) is pretty darn cool. I've also heard really good things about "Woodshed" for bbq, but havent been there.

Yeah.  I would go with Grubs.  It's a good atmosphere, and they have good food as well.  I would suggest the avocado burger.  But, I would go to the one on Shiloh Dr,  instead of Dickson.  I personally like that one better, and it isn't so much of a headache to park at.

The stockyards are more or less a cowboy/western theme park without the rides.  It is very gimmicky with average places to eat.

Near Southside/Magnolia has some really cool places to hang out and eat.  Casual places as well as some more upscale places.  Bearded lady is a pretty good spot.  Rahr brewery is in this area of town and has beer tours on Saturday.  During the football season they generally have football games on tv and have food trucks come to the brewery.  $10 for 3 pints of beer.

Dutch's Burgers and Buffalo Bros (wings/pizza) are right by campus.  Buffalo Bros has an amazing tv set up for watching games and great wings.  Fuzzy's has gone full on chain mode, but the original one is the one on berry street by TCU.  Fred's burgers on Bluebonnet circle has good food and pretty good tv set up as well.  These areas you will definitely get more of the "gameday" atmosphere as opposed to near southside/magnolia.

Railhead BBQ on Montgomery is a mile or two from campus and is probably my favorite quick bbq place in the area.  Usually full of people getting ready to go to the game.  Has great food and cold beer. This is where Gary Patterson does his weekly radio show on Thursdays.
