The famous roadhouse-style barbecue steak, brisket, and ribs are only part of the story at Billy Bob’s, dubbed the world’s largest honky tonk. More than 6,000 people can squeeze into the Fort Worth venue to watch country music concerts, hit the dance floor, dine at the restaurant, play arcade games, or watch a bull riding contest.
Billy Bob’s Texas Honky Tonk offers several experiences and ticket options. General admission to the dance club also includes standing room in the showroom during concerts. Reserved seating during concerts includes club entrance. A bull riding show may be included with your advanced ticket, or you may purchase it separately.
