Near campus eats: Fuzzy Taco Shop (this is the original), Dutch's Burgers and a few blocks away, Mellow Mushroom.
Besides downtown's walkable Sundance Square, other restaurant areas to explore in FW:
Near Southside on Magnolia Av, a revitalized and eclectic street with wonderful food and drink options. Suggestions - Ellerbe's and Nonna Tata (odd hours) fortworthsouth.org/community/…
West 7th (at University) - Fred's Hamburgers (outside seating please) is a FW legend http://www.west-7th.com/
My brunch selection in FW is Cafe Modern inside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
Driving to Dallas (30 miles east) opens a host of other choices, including La Duni in Northpark Center - your not to miss, luxury shopping requirement in Dallas. Also in Dallas with shopping and restaurants, West Village in Uptown. For brunch options in Dallas, I suggest opening a new topic
Premier Outlets with many brand stores, is located in Grand Prairie between Dallas and Fort Worth.
I've recently discovered there are Segway Tours in FW - do it! :)
