Kincaid's Hamburgers cooks up a new tradition in Weatherford

For decades the little hamburger joint was a beloved part of the West Fort Worth landscape. Now, its owners are working to make it a Weatherford tradition.

WEATHERFORD ñ For over two months the mouthwatering flavors of a Fort Worth tradition have been on the taste buds of Weatherford.

Kincaid's Hamburgers opened its sixth location in Weatherford Ridge Shopping Center. A tradition for 63 years in Fort Worth is quickly becoming one in Parker County.

So what made Kincaid's choose Weatherford for their newest venture?

"A lot of our customers come from the west side of Fort Worth and from even farther west like Weatherford,"ù Kincaid's owner Ron Gentry said. "We have customers that drive in from Abilene fairly routinely, and we know that there is a growth in Weatherford."

The Gentrys began their quest for a Weatherford location more than two years ago.



"We have so many good customers from Weatherford that we thought it would be a good place to go,"ù Gentry said. "It's our first venture outside of Tarrant County. We looked around and liked what we saw. We liked the way other businesses conducted theirs. It's a very business-friendly town. The city departments, the officials, code enforcement and health department are all really very easy to work with. They're very supportive. We've gotten so much positive feedback in Weatherford."



Kincaid's started as a small, independent grocery store. Ron Gentry's father, O.R. Gentry started working at the shop in 1947 as a meat cutter. Then eventually as Charles Kincaid got older O.R. took over more of the management of the store. O.R. purchased the business from Kincaid in 1968, but he kept the Kincaid name that had been a West Fort Worth fixture for 22 years. When O.R. Gentry died eight years ago, his son Ron, his wife and two sons were already a part of the Kincaid's business.
