…and Hoffbrau Steaks Is Always a Winner!
Showing now and through February 7th, is the 119th showing of the annual Ft.Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, an event we Hoffbrau-ians wait all year to celebrate! The first jingle of spurs and towering crowns of tall Texas ten-gallons are some of the most welcome sights and sounds entering our cobblestone foyer.
Even if you didn’t get tickets this year, locals know that some of the best people watching outside of the Will Rogers Coliseum is just down the street at our historic
(and equally legendary!) University location. With our great value, home-made menu items, and choice steaks, we’re the best choice in Ft.Worth for great steaks, especially for out of town guests who largely reside for these three weeks in area hotels.
On top of all that, Hoffbrau Steaks is located just down the street, less than 2 miles from the Will Rogers Center.
Every year, the show (officially titled the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show) brings in more than 900,000 viewers. Every rodeo and livestock category is represented, and it’s truly an exceptional event; much more than you could ever imagine.
All about the FWSSR
The grounds encompass 45 acres, with accompanying sound and light shows that will rival any rock show you’ve ever seen. Handicap accessible, and open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., each day of the 3 weeks, the grounds themselves are worth the entrance fee. You’ll find a carnival midway, guests from international venues, and speaking of rock shows, in years past the 2,856 seat auditorium has hosted a wide variety of talent including Jack Benny, Benny Goodman, Glen Miller, The Vienna Boys Choir, and the Rolling Stones!
