Default Aledo eats??

Going to a HS playoff game in Aledo. Looking for a decent steak. Not a lot of time to venture far off our route. Taking 287 to 20

I am afraid your options are pretty limited in or close to Aledo. This is not a steak place but it is right on I-20 just west of the Ranch House exit - just a few minutes from the stadium. Check out their menu and see if it will work for you:

Parker County Brewing is right next door to Drakes yolk. Again, its not steak but they have GREAT BEER and the German pizza is awesome as well

Should be a good game. Aledo can sure score some points...... and quickly. Never seen them play but listen to them on the radio on my drive to the lease every Friday night.

You may be referring to Fish Creek but it recently closed

Fire Oak Grill in Weatherford has a decent steak. Not too far from Aledo.

Yeah it started out as a high end Mexican place then several others have made a go of it. I thought Fish Creek was pretty good but they failed too

Kinda crazy, I figured with all of the development around there that something would be able to stick. Used to see deer there all of the time down in the bottom before they put in the shopping center in the last year or two

Railhead has a pretty good steak and the coldest beer around.
Also Boo Rays has a blackened steak that is good.
As said Mesquite Pit if you want to go to Weatherford, only another 8 - 10 miles with terrible traffic usually.

Try this place in Aledo. 1031 Bistro is what it's called. About half mile from the stadium right across the railroad tracks on 1187.

Now the deer are dead on the side of 20. Urban sprawl at its finest

Good luck.
