  • FreshMarket

    6300 Harry Hines Blvd. #130 Park Cities

    214-352-2296

    Fresh Market is located in Dallas and has been in business for over 25 years. We pride ourselves in the food we cook, which leaves everyone more than satisfied. Our hotline menu changes daily, providing a variety of foods from different ethnic cultures and backgrounds (including American, Italian, Asian, Mexican, and seafood), so please be sure to check the website every day for a different selection of food served that day.
  • 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.

  • 18th & Vine

    4100 Maple Ave. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-443-8335

    18th & Vine’s name comes from the neighborhood that put Kansas City jazz on the map, and the main dining room's cream-colored walls pay homage to those roots with photos of KC greats like Charlie Parker and Count Basie. The decor is classic and upscale eclectic, with none of the kitschy country touches that seem to define other barbecue joints. Tall windows brighten the interior, and the natural light will make Instagram photos of food look incredible. In fact, 18th & Vine is more than a “joint” — it’s an honest to goodness restaurant, with elevated menu choices to match. Come dinner hour, a sandwich-intensive lunch menu is replaced with chef Scott Gottlich’s eclectic entrées. The bone-in pork chop and pork belly come with a perfectly cooked chop served on a bed of mashed sweet potatoes, adorned with small spheres of granny smith apples and a savory glaze. The pork belly is equally amazing; bites started with rich smoke and ended with a sweet caramel finish, as if the pork turned into dessert in your mouth. For those who don't eat meat, the cauliflower steak is grilled and served with a cauliflower puree. A small selection of sweets includes a divine fried apple pie.

  • 2 Neighbors Hot Chicken

    324 E. Belt Line Road, No. 201 Duncanville/DeSoto

    972-400-8970

    A tidal wave of Nashville- and Memphis-style hot chicken restaurants hit the Dallas area in 2020. The city’s biggest food fad is available at more than a dozen spots around town and in the suburbs, but 2 Neighbors stands out for three reasons. First, 2 Neighbors pounds the chicken breasts used in its sandwiches to make the finished product easier to eat. Those bulging piles of chicken at other restaurants may look good on Instagram, but will they actually fit inside your jaw? Second, the spiced coating at 2 Neighbors — which, we’ll admit, isn’t as spicy as at many rival spots; “medium” here means a comfortable, gentle burn — doesn’t have the sandy, gritty texture of the added spices at other hot chicken spots. Third, there’s the issue of heritage: Nashville-style hot chicken comes from African-American tradition, but 2 Neighbors appears to be one of just two Black-owned independent hot chicken restaurants in the area right now. (The other is Helen’s in Lewisville.)

  • Adair's Saloon

    2624 Commerce St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-939-9900

    Adair’s Saloon is Deep Ellum’s outpost for what truly makes country music country. With frequent guest musicians representing the best of outlaw country from North Texas and around the nation, Adair’s boasts a honky tonk vibe in a dive bar atmosphere. The kitchen is open until 1:30 a.m. nightly offering some of the best bar burgers, sandwiches and wings for a surprisingly reasonable price. Be sure to grab a pen and leave your mark on the wall. Some may call it graffiti, but the good folks at Adair’s call it art.

  • 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.

  • Ajumma Kimbob Deli

    2240 Royal Lane Northwest Dallas

    972-241-1122

    At Ajumma, try Jjolmyeon, or cold spicy noodles, the perfect summer dish. A mess of noodles is served chilled and dunked in spicy red pepper sauce, surrounded by small mounds of julienned vegetables. Stir the veggies into your plate and enjoy. Ajumma’s atmosphere is distinctly old-fashioned; the restaurant’s founder recently opened a new spot, Hot Stone, which offers a very similar menu in a more modern setting.

  • 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.

  • Al Markaz

    1205 W. Trinity Mills Rd. #112 Carrollton/Farmers Branch

    972-245-9525

    For more than two decades years, Al Markaz has been an institution in the Dallas-area Indian and Pakistani communities. Some of the original employees are still here, and the lunch combo is still an outrageously good deal. That long history, and those low prices, are still a big part of the restaurant’s appeal, but there are plenty of good dishes coming out of the kitchen, including lentil stews and probably the best butter chicken within a dozen miles. It’s especially fun to visit in the evening during Ramadan and watch dozens of families arrive simultaneously to order mountainous, fast-breaking meals.

    Top pick: The lunch combo includes a piece of naan and appetizer portions of three different main courses. You choose the mains; we recommend the nihari and dal palak (spinach and lentils).

    The downside: Al Markaz’s pastry items, like samosas, are good when they’re fresh. The problem is, they’re very rarely served fresh. There are better places to grab biryani, as well.

    Fun fact: The attached grocery store is excellent, with a wide range of South Asian foods, teas, sodas and English biscuits.

  • Alfonso's Italian Restaurant

    718 N. Buckner Blvd., #222 White Rock Lake Area

    214-327-7777

    Just up the street from Casa Linda, Alfonso's – named after proprietor Peter Columbo's father – has been pulling in the neighborhood crowd since 1991. The shiny black-and-white checkerboard floor, fresh flowers on the tables and colorful photos of Italian street scenes set the mood for a cozy, enjoyable dining experience. For starters, they've got an ample platter of antipasti –peppers, pepperoni, cheese, tomatoes and garlicky olives – before moving on to hot garlic rolls and rich minestrone. The chicken Marsala entrée is sautéed in white wine and served under a heap of buttery mushrooms. Most entrées come with a generous side of pasta (your choice) and spicy-sweet tomato sauce. Wind up with the icy cappuccino pie – one slice divides nicely for two.

  • AllGood Cafe

    2934 Main St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-742-5362

    If you designed the diner of your dreams, and you happened to be from south-central Texas rather than, say, New York or the Midwest, the result would look a lot like AllGood Cafe. The food here adds gentle Texan touches to American classics, like the fat slices of roasted poblano pepper in the terrific grilled cheese sandwich, or the fact that all sandwiches come with a side of tortilla chips rather than fries. The chicken-fried steak, with enormous, crisp batter that sprawls across a whole takeout container, is advertised as the “world’s best.” We don’t know if that’s true, but to find better, you’d probably have to drive to some tiny town in the Hill Country.

    Top pick: Either the fabulous chicken club sandwich, with crisp, peppery bacon and avocado, or literally any dish that comes with the restaurant’s smooth mashed potatoes and ultra-peppery gravy. Come to think of it, all our favorite dishes at AllGood have huge quantities of black pepper.

    The downside: Some of the more overt attempts at Tex-Mex cooking are inconsistent; the salsas are plain, and only a native Texan will love the mystery-cheese queso.

    Fun fact: The restaurant’s atmosphere, eclecticism and charm are best described by the slogan emblazoned across its website: “It’s like going to Austin, without having to go through Waco.”

  • 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.

  • Angelo's Bar-B-Que

    2533 White Settlement Rd. Fort Worth

    817-332-0357

    The brisket is melt-in-your mouth tender, its flavor rich and smoky, and all you need to say as you approach the counter is "sliced" or "chopped". The lightning-fire hands behind the counter will take care of the rest. The beer is cold and the mugs are huge. Who could ask for more?

  • Angry Dog

    2726 Commerce St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-741-4406

    We're reluctant to use the phrase "fancy dive," but Angry Dog is dark with long tables, mismatched chairs and a wooden bar that runs almost the length of the restaurant. The name comes from its specialty – an all-beef hot dog with a choice of toppings. But the burger (which you can build yourself with a menu of extras) and the chicken-fried chicken sandwich are good, too. You'll find out after only a few bites why we've heaped so many awards on them over the years. You can wash down each bite with one of their 80-plus beers or with anything from their full bar. The Angry Dog also serves its own iced tea, which is a combination of raspberry and regular teas blended locally.

  • Antoine's Foods

    4234 Harry Hines Blvd. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-528-5291

    An inexpensive lunch combo of a made-to-order sandwich, a bag of chips and a drink makes for an old-school deli attractive to workers from the nearby Scottish Rite Hospital and hotels as well as UT Dallas students. Better still, the bargain-price lunch special is just one of things that distinguishes this shop from other sandwich makers. Another is relish-christened chow-chow, a condiment best applied to the signature "The Original" (ham, German salami, provolone cheese, mayonnaise, pickles, with chow-chow on fresh baked bread). The chips options are dominated by the standard supermarket variety. But, again, that's part of the draw to Antoine's. It's a no-frills joint with straight-up sandwiches. Wash it all down with a Snyder Soda.

  • Anvil Pub

    2638 Elm St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-741-1271

    For many years, popular dining and drinking areas of Dallas from Uptown to Greenville Avenue have had their share of English-style public houses. But, alas, Deep Ellum has never been able to draw a pub within its midst. That is until Anvil Pub opened in mid-November 2010. Which may explain why – even on the first weekend of its opening – the place already had folks from the Deep Ellum neighborhood proclaiming themselves as "regulars." That first weekend, Anvil Pub still smelled of Home Depot, which coincidentally is where the family who own and operate the pub bought the supplies needed to build Anvil. "Everything but the barstools, the chairs and the metal table bases," came from there, owner Josh Bridges said, while pouring a beer behind the long, dark wood bar. The grease-free "green" kitchen cranks out pub grub ranging from pizzas and wings to "all-natural" burgers from the menu, which boasts lots of vegetarian options.

  • Ari Korean BBQ

    2625 Old Denton Rd. #800 Carrollton/Farmers Branch

    469-892-2166

    At Arirang, it’s all about noodles and dumplings. This Korean restaurant in Carrollton is tops for homemade dough, whether you order made-from-scratch noodles or plump, freshly crimped dumplings loaded with chopped kimchi. Be careful around the noodles with spicy eggplant sauce, because the word “spicy” is taken very seriously. Similarly, the noodles in savory sesame broth are such a strong sesame flavor bomb that they’re for tried-and-true members of the sesame fan club.

    Top pick: If you can’t decide, grab a bowl of soup No. 4, a noodle soup with dumplings in it, too; if the dumplings tear and meat slips into the broth, the soup only gets better.

  • Armoury D.E.

    2714 Elm St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    972-803-5151

    When the Armoury D.E. opened its doors in 2015, its mission was to offer some of the best cocktails, food and live music Deep Ellum had seen in years. The Armoury has stuck to what it knows best, offering a casual dining experience with a diverse selection of Hungarian comfort foods and other good stuff that doesn’t quite fit anywhere else. Be sure to ask about the burger of the week while you’re there. Also, venture out back to catch one of their free live shows, curated with a music taste as refined as the bar’s choice in booze.

  • Asador

    2222 N. Stemmons Freeway Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-267-4815

    Being a casual bistro inside of a four-star hotel has its benefits like validated parking with an optional valet and high class ambience. The updated lobby's marble finishing offers a cool, sleek look and candlelight offers warm ambience that is striking and sophisticated. Aside from the absence of the famous chandelier, Asador stays true to the nearly three decades old hotel. In keeping with the casual theme, Asador's open dining room makes the restaurant an extension of the hotel lobby. The high ceilings and contemporary furnishings lend the dining room elegance, but the exposure to the lobby reminds diners they're eating in a hotel. Entree prices run in the $20 to $38 range, yet waiters are in jeans. Customers in the dining room can watch ESPN beaming from plasma TVs in the bar area. Tourist-heavy groups of diners adorned in jean shorts and baseball caps make up most of the clientele. The self-described American cuisine menu veers toward Latin and Southwestern influences while staying true to its organic intentions. Ingredients for every dish are beautiful and fresh.

  • Avanti Ristorante

    2720 McKinney Ave. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-871-4955

    Owner Jack Ekhtiar's small restaurant is a place where hip meets classic. Dark wood frames live jazz. Rustic Mediterranean fare, predominately Northern and Southern Italian, is presented elegantly. Among the examples are farfalle carbonara, a 6-ounce Brazilian lobster tail over spinach linguini alfredo and shrimp as well as carpaccio Avanti with white truffle oil. On weekends, revelers can enjoy the Moonlight Breakfast from midnight-3 am. During that seating, guests can request the signature Avanti Omelet (Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers and feta cheese) alongside escargot Chablisien, which is sautéed in garlic, vine-ripened tomatoes and mushrooms, then tossed with angel hair pasta, for the fancy-pants partier.

  • Avila's Mexican Restaurant

    4714 Maple Ave. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-520-2700

    The Avila family continues to serve classic Tex-Mex dishes to legions of rabid fans. They've been doing so since 1985 with tweaked family recipes of enchiladas, muchas enchiladas and chile relleno, which is a house specialty. Among the other signature dishes are the Anna Maria Plate (one soft cheese taco, one cheese enchilada and one beef taco), the chimichanga and a short list of combos, like the aforementioned Anna Maria.

  • Babe's Chicken Dinner House

    230 N. Center St. Arlington

    817-801-0300

    The small menu here reflects the predominantly fried All-Stars of Texan and Southern cuisine. There's fried chicken and chicken-fried steak, natch. There's fried catfish and pot roast. There's fried chicken tenders and smoked chicken. That's the entire selection of main dishes at Babe's Chicken Dinner House. No joke. And that's a relief to see in a market chock-full of Southern/soul food shops slinging what seems like infinite permutations on the fried. The selection of side dishes (gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet corn, green beans, green salad and biscuits) and desserts (pineapple upside-down cake, chocolate meringue pie, coconut meringue pie, lemon meringue pie and banana pudding) is similarly tiny. But what's not tiny? The portions. They're served in true down-home style, with helpings as large as the elastic-waistband pants needed to eat at Paul Vinyard's 11,000 square-foot homage to poultry.

  • Baby Back Shak

    1800 S. Akard St. Oak Cliff/South Dallas

    214-428-7427

    A half slab at this 23-year-old Cedars barbecue joint means seven baby back ribs kissed with smoke, spiced with pepper and just-right tender: The meat doesn’t fall off the bone, but pulls off with the gentlest of tugs. It just narrowly beats out the boudin plate as our favorite order, but the boudin (here spelled boudain) is top-notch, too, especially dunked in a cup of sauce. Since the coronavirus crisis began, Baby Back Shak has been takeout only, with no seating available in the small dining room that pays loving tribute to great blues musicians and displays two decades’ worth of media praise.

    Top pick: We love two meaty sides: excellent, peppery, lick-the-takeout-container baked beans and the boudin links. (Yes, boudin can be ordered as a side dish with a rack of ribs to make the ultimate meat plate.)

  • Bachman Tacos and Grill

    3311 W. Northwest Highway Northwest Dallas

    214-352-0010

    The world would be all the better if it were filled with more trompo taco fans. To make a great trompo taco, the vertical spit has to spin, but at many places business isn't steady enough to keep the contraption in motion. Not so at Bachman Tacos and Grill, where tacos are a necessary add on to every tankful of gasoline. The taqueria is nestled inside a Chevron so you can pound a taco before gas up your car -- to get to your next taqueria, of course. Meat cooked on a vertical spit often lends itself to some of the most beautiful meals in the world of street food. Just hear the word shawarma and visions of charred but supple lamb paint the back of your cortex, while the phantom scent of rosemary tickles your nose. In the back, cooks thread huge sheets of fatty meat, dripping in marinade, onto the long vertical spits. The finished cones look disturbing and even a bit obscene, but after roasting a while you'll start to come around. It's almost hypnotizing as it spins like some giant carnal music box ornament.

  • 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.
