Weekend at Stockyards with kids TR

Stayed one night at hyatt place.

Excellent location, helpful staff, OK breakfast--Gson expected the waffle machine--they sell the waffles!, bathroom needed some caulk and paint.

Two queens and queen sofa were perfect.

pool adequate--smokers arrived as we were leaving--don't know the rules but really annoying.

Stockyards in general--helpful staff at visitors center and on horseback, clean area.

Maze--Gson loved it..took him 31 minutes!!!

Stage coach --don't bother --short trip--nothing to see

herd and gunfight great.

Restaurants--Trail Boss--great value for families--terrific waitress

Asadero--good food, helpful waiter, building looks awful

Star cafe --good waitress ,expensive but good chicken steak sandwich, decent cheap onion rings, interesting decor

Sales staff in all stores were very welcoming but we left FW empty handed!

Pawnee bill wild west show-- I an not recommending it. Gson loved it, little one cried every time they snapped a whip or shot a gun,

Political statement--painting a white guys face brown and having having him dance is not a "tribute to native americans" Drop it or do a whole lot better!!

We need to return as adults and enjoy the night life!!

Good weekend.

Nice report. Sounds like a fun weekend! El Asadero is a favorite of ours - their salsa will positively light you up!

As for your "political statement" - that's bizarre. Wonder why they would choose to paint someone's face, when Native Americans come in just about every color under the sun? Shows a marked lack of understanding.

My wife was thinking of ordering the Asada Puerco until the waiter said it was hotter than the salsa!!

So glad you had a good visit. The Hyatt Place is one of our favorite places to stay.
