  • India Chaat Cafe

    18101 Preston Rd. Richardson & Vicinity

    972-381-0003

    This versatile North Dallas eatery seemingly does it all, from killer chaat — street snacks — to Desi-style pizzas topped with curry spices and paneer. The chaat is some of the area’s best, and probably the finest within Dallas city limits, but it’s the crisp-bottomed, warmly spiced pizza that has won our hearts and occasionally sends our minds wondering why this inspired fusion of cultures isn’t served at more local restaurants.

  • Adelmo's

    5450 W. Lovers Ln., #225 Park Cities

    214-559-0325

    This two-story bistro blends cuisines from around the Mediterranean: Italian, French and Middle Eastern. The casual air and wide-ranging menu make it a popular spot, especially for slurping up some wonderful osso bucco, the exceedingly tender, long-stewed veal shanks that are a house specialty. Quaint and very romantic setting.
  • Afrah Mediterranean Grill & Buffet

    318 E. Main St. Richardson & Vicinity

    972-234-9898

    Afrah offers authentic Lebanese fare influenced by a variety of Mediterranean flavors. The food is a feast for the senses, famous for Shawarma Pita sandwiches, fresh bread, pies and our homemade gelato and baklava. Afrah started as a pastry shop in February of 2002. The Mediterranean sweets became so popular that they decided to sell more of the family’s traditional Southern Lebanese recipes, evolving into a full service restaurant.. The dishes evolved from the family's recipes, prepared in house with Halal meats and the freshest ingredients.

  • Al Biernat's

    4217 Oak Lawn Ave. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-219-2201

    Al Biernat is the czar of the front door, the dining room sheik, and that's all you need to know. Bred at The Palm where he held court as frontman for some 22 years, Al Biernat knows that great steaks and fine seafood vibrate beyond their requisite flavor profiles when jolted with charm. Al Biernat's is riddled with all of the staples: the jumbo shrimp cocktails and the jumbo lump crab cakes; the fried calamari crusted in potato; the iceberg wedge with the blue cheese gravel, the creamed spinach and creamed corn, and potatoes in six guises. Surprises bud from the uniformity. Al features elegant caviar service, blackened sea scallops with Polynesian rice, and Colorado elk to pair with his thick roster of prime Allen Brothers steaks (one of them, a Kobe-Black Angus hybrid filet). Plus, Biernat's diverse but tightly constructed wine list means that every bite will finish in vintaged savor. It's the epitome of meats and greets.

  • Amplified Live

    10261 Technology Boulevard E. Northwest Dallas

    214-350-1904

    Equipped with a full-service restaurant, bar and a music venue, Amplified Live has a big patio area, a private pond and live music. They offer craft and imported beers and your favorite domestics. Amplified, formerly called Gas Monkey, also has a laundry list of appetizers on their menu: fried mac n’ cheese, pulled pork stuffed peppers, wings and Texas style loaded fries with queso, bacon bits and ranch dressing.

  • Asian Mint

    11617 N. Central Expwy, Suite 135 North Dallas

    214-363-6655

    There are few surprises at Nikky Phinyawatana's Asian fusion restaurant. The Mint menu, much like its North Dallas counterpart, lists the regular players at first glance-satay, rolls, piquant Thai soups, stir fries, Mongolian beef. Then comes the house's special pad Thai, which is available in the form of crunchy wonton strips, crab haul, low-carb (sans noodles), among others. There is a daily martini special. If you like the spice, request it. Otherwise, the kitchen will play it safe with the Highland Park locals.

  • Aw Shucks

    3601 Greenville Ave. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-821-9449

    For more than 20 years, this neighborhood spot has been shelling out cheap mollusks with even cheaper brewskis. Much of the food comes in fried renditions, including oysters. However, there are many preparations offered, some unusual for shuck shack – stringed lights, coolers and picnic tables included – such as a ceviche and a trio of fish tacos made with tilapia. Less eyebrow-cocking options include crab legs, po-boys, crawfish and cole slaw that's best inhaled on the patio. Whether you're drunk on the cocktail sauce or the carbonated sauce, make sure to keep count of the beer. Payment is on the honor system. And at the Aw Shucks prices, it would be shameful to breach that code. Also, with its location across from the Granada Theater, it makes an excellent choice for pre-show drinks.

  • Baboush

    3636 McKinney Ave. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-599-0707

    Persistent chatter and clanking silverware signals that you've found one of Uptown’s more promising dining spots in Baboush. Hummus and babaganoush are safe plays, served with plenty of warm pita for dipping, but the entire menu warrants attention. Shrimp and chicken kebabs and other street plates deliver bites that push conventional Moroccan cooking while staying true to tradition. No matter what you order, make use of whatever condiment is served at its side. Baboush has a condiment king working in the kitchen, and his hard work makes every plate sing.

  • Baker's Ribs

    6516 E. Northwest Highway East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-373-0082

    The pink pig signage lures barbecue devotees to this palace of smoked pork. The rustic interior accentuated with red-and-white checker oilcloth tables gives the restaurant a 'cue shack feel. Stepping into Baker's Ribs is like stepping into a roadside barbecue joint. The signature St. Louis-style ribs are tender. However, the brisket is almost as much a customer favorite. With a thick, dark crust and smoky flavor, it's no wonder. The expected combo options, like the "two-meater," are available and can be greedily consumed with sweet tea and other classic barbecue accompaniments like cole slaw and corn bread. But at owners Joe and Suzanne Duncan's barbecue joints, it's all about the pork, even offering their own version of a spicy pork taco for less than a two-spot.

  • Bambu Asian Cuisine

    1930 N. Coit Rd. Richardson & Vicinity

    972-480-8880

    Thai food at Bambu isn't the sloppy affair it sometimes becomes at greasy pad Thai joints: The best dishes at this neighborhood nook are startlingly sophisticated, reflecting a respect for top-notch ingredients and a steady command of the grill. The restaurant hews to the Isaan style of cooking associated with Thailand's northeastern region, and the Laotian influence shows in smoky slivers of beef jerky, bowlfuls of sticky rice and wonderfully marbled beef, grilled and served with a soy-scallion dipping sauce. Don't leave without sampling the fabulous black rice pudding with coconut cream, a two-day ordeal for the kitchen and a boon for comfort-food seekers.

  • Banana Leaf Thai

    17370 Preston Rd. Richardson & Vicinity

    972-735-8778

    This far North Dallas spot is probably more neighborhood than destination, but tasty dishes and charming decor keep it in the game. Fried rice dishes come out quickly, which might raise an eyebrow, but fluffy rice with tasty chunks of pineapple and chicken was a surprise and relief. The grilled chicken smothered in peanut sauce looks bland but recovers with appropriate sweetness amidst jasmine rice and colorful steamed vegetables. Service was fairly attentive with nary a half-empty drink or an open sugar packet on the table, but when the initial order was mistaken, enough time passed for others to be half finished with their plates.

  • Bangkok Dee Thai Cuisine

    10207 N. Central Expressway Northeast Dallas

    214-739-3436

    Clean and simple, this strip-mall restaurant offers several dishes on buffet, plus a menu that allows each diner to customize his meal. Basic dishes are listed (red, yellow and green curries, sweet and sour sauce, fried rice and glass and rice noodles) with the option of including chicken, beef, pork, tofu, shrimp, squid, crab or scallop with one price for seafood options and a dollar less for the rest. The tofu pad Thai was bountiful, with noodles heaped high and peanuts and crisp vegetables on the side, and the spring rolls came steaming from the fryer and served with a light sweet and sour sauce.
  • Bangkok Inn

    6033 Oram St. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-821-8979

    Love for this Thai eatery is multi-generational. For more than 20 years, customers have been passing on their love for the food offered here. Dishes like the green curry, tom kha soup and corn patties fetch high praise. The pad Thai is also popular. Are you surprised? However, don't be afraid to try some of the not-so-familiar authentic Thai fare. The staff will steer you in the right direction. The willingness to customize is probably one of the reasons Bangkok Inn has been a success. If you want your order spiced beyond measure on the Scoville scale, the cooks are happy to oblige. The cheap prices and BYOB policy also contribute.

  • Becks Prime

    5931 Forest Lane North Dallas

    972-661-8681

    Promising fresh, fast, burgers, steaks and sandwiches, this Houston-based fast food chain comes endorsed by Texas Monthly. The massive half-pound patties dwarf typical fast food options, and they should, since a burger here starts at $7.25. The meat is ground in house fresh each morning, and grilled to order – they'll even deliver a rare burger – over mesquite wood.

  • Besa's Pizza & Pasta

    14856 Preston Rd. North Dallas

    972-233-7227

    From the street, this might look like the average strip-mall pizza parlor, but once inside things change. The tables are covered in earth-tone tablecloths that match the seat cushions. Obviously, some thought went into Besa's. That by itself distinguishes Besa's from most slice shops in town. The counter service is still there, as are the cheap price points. Lunch specials begin at $4.99 for one Neapolitan-style slice, a tossed salad and a drink. While the pizza, including the Sicilian, is popular, pastas such as the lobster ravioli get raves from regulars. Among the myriad of subs available, the Philly cheesesteak is a hot item. Customers in search of something more substantial can order one of the meat (chicken, veal or seafood) entrées.

  • Beth Marie's Old Fashioned Ice Cream & Soda Fountain

    117 W. Hickory St. Denton

    940-384-1818

    Maurice made a mess, a delectable, delicious mess, which he spilt all over Beth Marie’s old-fashioned floor. OK, so you can only assume this kind of occurrence helps dessert connoisseurs come up with creative nicknames for their one-of-a-kind concoctions. Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream probably didn’t name its Maurice’s Muddy Mess flavor after a sweet-toothed kid, but that doesn’t mean this dessert stop is any less delish. Selling all sorts of colorful creams including cupcake, coconut and chocolate with chocolate chips, Beth Marie’s has certainly made a name for itself. The parlor scoops out to several Denton locations and markets throughout Texas. You can check out its original home in Denton’s Historic Downtown Square.

  • Big Shucks

    6232 E. Mockingbird Lane East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-887-6353

    Fresh oysters, clams and crab legs and an inland-oyster-bar atmosphere make this a festive spot, especially when the longnecks are flowing on the patio. The fried catfish (served with fat fries) is some of the best in town: crispy and greaseless. It's a mecca, too, for crawfish lovers. The signature shrimp cocktail is made with avocado, onions, tomatoes, cilantro and serrano peppers, served in a tall mug. Run like its little brother on Greenville Avenue – Aw Shucks – it has its traditions: no moist towelettes, no bottled cocktail sauce (you mix the pepper sauce and ketchup) and no check. The pay-at-the-door honor system makes you feel better about mankind.

  • Big Tony’s West Philly Cheesesteaks

    13378 Preston Rd. North Dallas

    214-812-9092

    Why West Philly? Well, that’s where Anthony “Big Tony” Blaylock is from. He graduated from Temple University, which explains the college memorabilia at some of his mini-chain’s locations, and got experience in the restaurant business by working at local rival chain Fred’s before opening his own cheesesteak shop. Big Tony’s imports bread loaves from Philadelphia, because nothing made locally can match the unique, soft-but-firm texture of the breads into which this restaurant piles sliced steak and veggies. The menu is huge, and each day has its own specials, but look out for No. 8, with sautéed onions and mushrooms, and No. 15, which adds mushrooms, onions, banana peppers and slices of jalapeño. The meat is saucy, but never greasy, and we also appreciate the pandemic safety measures taken at each restaurant, including curbside pickup at some locations.

    Top pick: The fried sides, including “toothpicks” and “hockey pucks” (fried straight-sliced onions and peppers, and fried jalapeño coins, respectively), are spot-on.

    Fun fact: The enormous menu also includes burgers and a hot pastrami hoagie.

  • Bistro B

    9780 Walnut St. Garland & Vicinity

    214-575-9885

    Bistro B (Authentic Asian Cuisine) is all kinds of awesome. It's delicious awesome. It's cheap awesome. It's scary awesome. It's "Aww, dammit, this Thai iced tea has those chewy brown gelatin bubbles in it. Why am I chewing a drink? This is wrong" awesome. Bistro B is, in fact, the Cheesecake Factory of Asian cuisine. The menu is ridiculously huge, including a list of smoothies that includes the "Jack Fruit" and "Avocado Mung Bean." Also worth noting was number 424 Nuoc Lanh Chai, which is a beverage described as "water bottle."

  • BlackFriar Pub

    2621 McKinney Ave. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-953-0599

    This popular restaurant and bar attracts bustling Uptown crowds and folks who live in the surrounding neighborhood. Serving a delicious selection of food from appetizers to cheese boards to burgers and sandwiches as well as an abundant beer selection, BlackFriar's menu adds up to one serious pub and grub. BlackFriar provides plenty of seating inside and out, and has one of the best patios in Dallas – with decorative heat lamps, assorted seating, warm lighting and a full bar. Inside, the atmosphere is dimly lit and appropriately warm, with dark woods and lots of pub-style seating. Happy hour runs from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Sundays, brunch is available from noon to 4 p.m.

  • The Blue Fish

    3519 Greenville Ave. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-824-3474

    A hip vibe bolstered by mixed wood and metal design elements bestow upon this Japanese restaurant specializing in sushi a sleek sheen. Whimsical signature rolls like the South Beach set atop a martini glass only accentuate it. As does the price. Salmon, crab, shrimp and avocado wrapped in cucumber with a vinaigrette and masago will set you back $12.95. The folks behind Blue Fish have been at it in this first area location since 1998. With restaurants all over DFW, the price doesn't keep sushi lovers from biting. The hip masses come for more than the raw fish and tangy rice. The restaurant offers a full menu, from potstickers and hibachi to the ubiquitous ahi tower and bento boxes.

  • Blue Mesa Grill

    14866 Montfort Dr. Addison

    972-934-0165

    The meal to have at this area favorite is the Mexican breakfast buffet. Families in their post-church Sunday best line up for the omelet bar, and Tex-Mex offerings like the chicken and mushroom enchiladas with chipotle cream sauce and waffles. The rest of the menu, with as many ingredients locally sourced as possible, is marked by higher-end Mexican and Tex-Mex specialties like slow-roasted natural chicken with caramelized honey-ancho glaze and the blue-corn-crusted mahi mahi with roasted poblano aioli. Of course, tacos make an appearance, but we're talking beef tenderloin tacos here. The décor follows suit with clean and colorful appointments. Reservations are most definitely recommended.

  • Bob's Steak & Chop House

    1300 Houston St. Fort Worth

    817-350-4100

    There are steakhouses for celebrating business deals, steakhouses for wooing lovers and steakhouses where the only imperative is to enjoy a good plate of quality red meat. Bob's Steak and Chop Shop falls in the latter category. While parties flock to this local favorite, there are few better spots for a single eater to sidle up to the bar, drink a strong martini and eat beef. The flavorful steaks all come with a massive peeled-and-parsley-ed carrot, but the potato's left to the diner's discretion. Go with the home fries submerged in peppercorn gravy – a sufficient excuse for starting with a mere half-portion of the brawny blue cheese salad.
  • Bombay Chowpatty

    825 W. Royal Lane Irving/Las Colinas

    972-677-7658

    One of Irving’s top two places for chaat, along with Taj Chaat, is Bombay Chowpatty, named after a beach lined with street food vendors. The dining room showcases some of that airy atmosphere, with seats arranged food-hall style around a central open kitchen and many of the walls plastered with beach photos and Bollywood posters. All that openness has taken on a new feel during the pandemic, but you can always order takeout sandwiches and snack packs online. Pav bhaji is a superb order here, as are the bit-of-everything lunch combos. If you just need a snack, go for sabudana vada, deep-fried patties of sago pearls, whole-seed spices and chives; they have the crisp bubbly texture of good tater tots. The fusion items, like a pizza dosa and pineapple-chocolate-cheese sandwich, are just as wild as they sound, so order with caution.

    Top pick: If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, skip the European-style sandwiches on white bread and order a frankie, a rolled-up paratha filled with chopped veggies and spices. The paneer frankie here is a reliable and filling vegetarian lunch.

    The downside: The menu boards in person and on the online ordering system don’t really describe the foods on offer, so if you’re still unfamiliar with the world of Indian snack foods, do a bit of research before you go.

    Fun fact: Bombay Chowpatty is one of the few restaurants in the Dallas area with a Jain menu. Because Jain people believe in total nonviolence to all living creatures, their vegetarianism excludes foods grown underground, like onions, to avoid harming small insects by harvesting roots or tubers.

  • Bone Daddy's House of Smoke

    8856 Spring Valley Rd. North Dallas

    214-575-3050

    Mike Leatherwood's tiny chain of breastaraunts can be summed up in three keywords: barbecue, beer and beauties. The latter are called "Daddy's Girls," and serve the former two items while clad in tight-fitting clothes. Surprise, surprise: The main clientele are men sucking down cold ones and hickory-smoked 'cue, like the three-meat house platter with two sides. Bear in mind that some meats, like the bone-in half chicken, are only available on a platter. Baby-back ribs, sandwiches (pulled pork is popular), burgers and chicken-fried steak also make appearances on the menu. And for the ladies whose men are too busy ogling the staff or the big game on the television, there are several salads. Trust us, many a "Damn!" can be heard in the dining rooms, exclamations referring to neither food nor sport.

  • Boulangerie

    1921 Greenville Ave. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-821-3477

    If you’re looking for a well-made baguette, the Village Baking Co.'s Boulangerie is a good place to find one. If you’re lucky, you’ll witness the baker pull several from the oven as you walk through the door. Not everything is quite that fresh, but everything you see was baked that morning, from the croissants to the éclairs to the massive boules on the shelves behind the counter. Come in the afternoon and get a sandwich made on the same bread. Ham, cheese and butter sounds rather plain, but it’s one of the best ways to enjoy a baguette.

  • Bowlounge

    167 Turtle Creek Blvd. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-741-7737

    Bowlounge isn't cheap, and with ancient scoring machines that seem to miscount pins a few times every round, it's not for serious bowlers. But the lanes, pin-setters and scoring methods salvaged from an East Texas alley facing demolition give off such a comforting nostalgic vibe that a little bit of scorekeeping chaos is easily overlooked. And we'll take Twisted Root burgers over stale, neon-cheese-topped nachos any day.

  • Brick & Bones

    2713 Elm St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    469-914-6776

    Next-generation fried chicken has arrived in Dallas. While most tributes to the Southern dish stay darling, the guys at Brick & Bones have produced a fried chicken that’s bad-ass. Get the hot chicken version. You’ll get your burn on like you spent an hour at Planet Fitness. Beyond the great food, Brick & Bones is a solid place to get a drink. A few of the bartenders and the owner worked at Cedars Social, and they’ve taken the exemplary cocktail culture with them. If you’re in Deep Ellum and you’re famished, this is a great place to find yourself. You’ll walk out with a buzz and a deep-seated buurrrn!
