Indiana Jones loves dining in Cowtown.

Why it matters: Harrison Ford, the cultural icon whose movies have grossed more than $6 billion worldwide, has been seen dining at quite a few Fort Worth restaurants over the last few years.

  • He seems to enjoy fine-dining establishments, casual taco trucks and high-end cocktail lounges.

The latest: Ford was recently spotted at 61 Osteria, the new Italian spinoff of Grace, another one of his favorite local spots, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The big picture: Ford has been coming to Fort Worth regularly for years to update his helicopter pilot training at Bell Helicopter. He also starred in the "Yellowstone" prequel "1923," which was shot locally.

Between the lines: The actor's son Ben is a chef in Los Angeles.

Flashback: Fort Worth residents have been glimpsing Ford since at least 1999, when he was seen dining on the patio of Angeluna.

  • In 2015, Ford was seen at Ellerbe Fine Foods, Shinjuku Station, The Usual, The Chat Room, Del Frisco's Double Eagle, the downtown cocktail bar Thompson's and Woodshed Smokehouse, per the Star-Telegram.
  • The owners of Thai Terrace boasted about Ford visiting in 2018.

The bottom line: If you see him out and about, give him his space — whether he's with a group or, um, Solo.
