Named for pioneering oilman Edwin Drake, Drake’s Yoke Wood & Wine is new in Willow Park.

The elevated barbecue joint opened quietly last month, serving a Southern-inspired menu ranging from grilled brisket chile relleno to blackened redfish with grilled corn salsa.

 

 

Crowds from Aledo and surrounding areas flocked fast, and although the lunch-and-dinner eatery is still working to gain its footing, the rustic decor and a seat at the bar or patio alone are worth a visit.

Go for cocktails and appetizers like fried oysters, smoked wings and fried shrimp with brisket burnt ends.
