  • 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.

  • 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.”

  • Ame

    418 N Bishop Ave. West Dallas

    214-782-9696

    Ame in the Bishop Arts District offers an upscale setting for Indian dishes backed classic French cooking. Think masala baked eggplant with a turmeric béchamel sauce. Lamb chops are cloaked in pistachios and herbs of a perfect mound of pistachio potatoes. Samosas have a surprising pop of heat. The wine menu is extensive and the cocktail menu interesting; try the Massala sour made with Old Forester bourbon. This is a white tablecloth and linen napkins spot in the heart of the Bishop Arts District. The space is bookended by bars; one at the entrance to Ame and another speakeasy style at the back of the restaurant designed to be European-like escape.

  • Amici Signature Italian

    1022 S. Broadway St. Carrollton/Farmers Branch

    972-245-3191

    Amici has a lot to boast about – great food, an intimate atmosphere and a pretty endearing location, considering it's way out in Carrollton. But the best thing about the cozy Italian restaurant is the chef's pants. When we visited, they appeared to be patterned with various types of peppers in a plethora of colors. We know this because Chef Bartolino is not only talented but friendly, frequently venturing out into the 48-seat restaurant to greet his guests. It's a nice touch since a full meal at Amici is just on the other side of expensive, but it's the ideal spot for any special-occasion dinners you may be inclined to host in the northern suburbs. Seafood lovers will rave about the shrimp dishes, and the tiramisu is fluffy and picturesque, with just the right amount of coffee liqueur. Make reservations early in the day; you'll have a guaranteed table and something to look forward to when your afternoon at work stretches on forever.

  • Antonio's Ristorante

    4985 Addison Circle, Addison North Dallas

    972-458-1010

    Luciano Cola's Italian restaurant combines rustic and elegant elements to create a casual atmosphere where friends and family can commiserate, businessmen can close deals and couples can cavort over a plate of antipasto misto della casa. Sure, there are plates of spaghetti drowned in red sauce. There is also lasagna Ripiena alla Romana (lasagna stuffed with meatballs, sausage and three cheeses), homemade gnocchi (Antonio's is a family outfit) and paglia e fieno (straw and hay). The latter is green and white fettuccine with ham, mushrooms, cream and Parmesan. The Cioppino Antonio, the house version of fisherman's stew, is huge in portion and popularity. Also popular are the pizzas, like the traditional and complex capricciosa. Ask about the daily risotto special.

  • 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.

  • Aunt Stelle's Sno-Cones

    2002 W. Clarendon Dr. Oak Cliff/South Dallas

    214-946-1431

    Colds and flu viruses monopolize the short fall and winter seasons. However, snow-cone stands, like this Oak Cliff operation, have a hold on the extensive inferno under which Dallasites roast most of the year. This summer chiller is a neighborhood institution and has been in business for more than four decades. It's only open from the final Sunday in April to Labor Day. So, if you're not in line by 9 p.m., or by the time the sign's lights are turned off, forget about enjoying the endless and dirt-cheap flavors, like the popular coconut. Someone will turn you away. They sell more than flavored ice from the hand-painted menu. The owners also offer customer favorites the Pink Lady (vanilla ice cream flavor) and a root beer float.

  • Babe's Chicken Dinner House

    200 S. Main St. Cedar Hill

    469-272-4500

    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 and green beans) and desserts (pineapple upside-down cake) 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.

  • Bangkok City

    4301 Bryan St. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-824-6200

    With a no-frills menu of basic Thai options, Bangkok City is one of the most consistent stops for Thai food in the metroplex. It boasts a healthy number of vegetarian options, as well as a hearty variety of chicken and beef dinners. Especially potent are its Imperial Rolls – tofu and shrimp with vegetables wrapped in rice paper – and cold Thai salads. But the crispy duck is the star of the show. A roasted half bird, fried until crisp and served with chili peppers onions and crunchy fried basil leaves, will come as spicy as you like. If four-star “native Thai” isn't hot enough, ignore the menu and order as many stars as you like. One guy ordered 17 stars. He was never heard from again.

  • 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.

  • Black-eyed Pea

    3857 Cedar Springs Rd. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-521-4580

    For more than 30 years the Black Eyed Pea has been turning out casual home cooking with a Southern flare for diners looking for a comfortable meal on the cheap. Think mashed potatoes with the skins left on and pot roast slow-simmered until it’s fork tender. They have burgers, fried green tomatoes, meatloaf and enough spinach and artichoke dip to keep the cardiac unit at Baylor profitably employed for the foreseeable future. In fact, there’s a whole section to their menu devoted to chicken, steak and other cuts of meat -- all of it chicken-fried. Don’t stop now. The Black Eyed Pea has you covered for dessert too. The famous Banana A’Pea’l layers rich vanilla custard with fresh bananas, vanilla wafers and tops the whole thing off with whipped cream.

  • Blue Goose Cantina

    2905 Greenville Ave. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-823-8339

    Fajitas, tamales, enchiladas – the trifecta of Tex-Mex cookery – are the specialties at Blue Goose, matched only by the much-lauded (and guzzled) margaritas. From the original Greenville Avenue location to the locations scattered around the Dallas area, the Tex-Mex restaurant's slogan holds true everywhere. It's "Where Every Day is a Fiesta," with its all-the-colors-of-the-rainbow paint scheme and neon lighting. The signature Goose Eggs app is a plate of jalapeños stuffed with chicken and cheese with the house Durango sauce on the side. Along with the aforementioned Tex-Mex standards are signature items like the Chimichanga a la Blue Goose, Pollo a la Chipotle and twin chiles rellenos. A table with all that food on it is definitely for a party.

  • Bobbers Burgers and Whips

    208 S. Akard St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    972-268-7605

    Located inside The Exchange food hall at the AT&T Discovery District, Bobbers Burgers and Whips offers flamed-grilled burgers, hot dogs and fries. Queso plays a prominent role on the menu and should be slathered on everything. The ooey-gooey pimento cheese burger is strongly recommended. They also serve the vegan pineapple dessert made famous at Disney World, Dole Whip. Grab a drink at the nearby bar and consider eating outside in the spacious and vibrant plaza when the weather is nice. There is also plenty of dining spaces throughout The Exchange.
  • Bolsa

    614 W. Davis St. Oak Cliff/South Dallas

    214-367-9367

    Just the concept of local ingredients trucked in from the farm every day, the reliance on organic meats and vegetables, and the ever-changing menu would be enough to attract enough of a following to sustain this small Oak Cliff station. But the kitchen is pretty damn good too-even without a deep fryer or walk-in freezer as back-up. The flavors are intensely fresh and the dishes creative without being overwrought. And if that's not enough, the owners designed Bolsa with great sensitivity to the building's historic look and feel. OK, so it's an old auto shop-it still feels like part of a 1940s neighborhood. Open, airy, with a cool "beer garden"-style patio. Still one of the best Bishop Arts has to offer.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Brooklyn Jazz Cafe

    1701 S. Lamar St. Oak Cliff/South Dallas

    214-428-0025

    In the Southside on Lamar neighborhood hides a hot and cool club, named after New York City's hip borough. This musical haunt was awarded Best Jazz Club honors in our 2010 edition of Best of Dallas and the 2009 best brunch. Brooklyn Jazz Café is housed in a plain redbrick corner building that during the day is flooded with light through French doors. Aside from house specialties, like spicy Caribbean shrimp and oxtails, customers can enjoy swinging tunes while playing pool or sipping house cocktails in the inner bar that's lined with corrugated metal. Sundays feature the talents of Nadia Washington as well as bottomless Bloody Marys, mimosas, poinsettias and belinis.

  • Buli

    3908 Cedar Springs Rd. Uptown/Oak Lawn

    214-528-5410

    Just off Oak Lawn Avenue sits a coffee shop and café, outwardly modern in décor, that hits all the requisite marks. Not only is there a plethora of caffeinated beverages, there are many edible accompaniments. These include danishes, scones and breakfast eats. There are plenty of stand-alone dishes too. Take, for example, the sandwiches, salads and grilled panini for lunch or dinner. Still, Buli, owned by Allen Goode and Scott Whittall, is primarily a cup-of-joe joint. Among the coffee options are the popular and proprietary Buli Bold and the medium-roast Bliss. Flavored coffees are rotated, including the recent vanilla nut and raspberry white chocolate selections. But not all the drinks are hot. Iced coffees rule the summer months.

  • Bullion

    400 S. Record St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    972-698-4250

    With a collection of specially commissioned sculptures and a dining room that’s literally a gold bar on the side of a skyscraper, Bullion is one of the most ambitious restaurants Dallas has seen in years. It’s also one of the best, with a deep cast of talented chefs producing elegant, but not pretentious, updates on classic French foods. Dig through the superb bread basket, share maybe the city’s best beef tartare and revel in the exquisitely cooked seafood. (Grab a side order of crispy bistro-style pommes frites, too.) A superb, all-French wine program, outstanding desserts by pastry star Ricchi Sanchez and world-class people-watching complement the excellent dinners.

    Top pick: Many of the best meals are rotating daily specials, which change seasonally and always represent chef Bruno Davaillon’s technique at its peak.

    The downside: Last year, we heard lots of reports that Bullion’s service falls down somewhat when the customer isn’t recognized as a newspaper food critic. Some of that lesson has been learned, reportedly, but a literal gold bar full of sculptures is probably always going to play favorites to some extent.

    Fun fact: The entrance, at the corner of Young and Record streets, is a grand spiral staircase direct from the sidewalk; ask the valet if you need an elevator.

  • The Butcher Shop

    808 Munger Ave. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-720-1032

    The Butcher Shop Steakhouse prides itself in serving fine steak in a warm comfortable environment. As you first arrive, the aromas from our charcoal grill will hit you, whether in a jeans or a suit you will know you are in the right place. We pride ourselves in serving only the freshest ingredients. Our menu ranges from wild salmon to prime aged steaks, chicken to fresh salads, along with a wide variety of world class wines.
  • Buzzbrews

    2801 Commerce Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-741-2801

    Owner Omar Zuniga offers stick-to-your-ribs grub (even the vegetarian options) to a customer base that skews towards the hipster, the scenester and the coffee-loving conversationalist, all of whom are attracted to the classy retro-diner feel and the hearty food. In other words, it's a lively, busy joint, particularly for those who enjoy a free wi-fi hookup with their over-easy eggs. The stuffed crepes and eggs are popular here and include variations such as Hare Krishna (egg whites) and the hearty Bluto, which comes with chorizo, onion, bacon, tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, poblano and cheddar. The roll-your-own breakfast burritos are also hits, available in such whimsical names as the Mr. C, which has chorizo. Coffee is self-serve. And the place is always jumping, thanks in part to theme nights like open-mic and trivia nights.

  • Byblos

    1406 N. Main St. Fort Worth

    817-625-9667

    If there's a better lunch buffet to be had in Fort Worth, we haven't found it. Byblos lays out a delicious spread of Lebanese and Middle Eastern specialties in the Stockyards, including chicken roasted in lemon juice and herbs; a savory rice dish, Dajaj Bil Riz, with chunks of chicken, finely ground sirloin and a dash of cinnamon; and fall-off-the-bone-tender roasted legs of lamb. All of these items and much more are also available for dinner off the menu, but the inexpensive buffet is a perfect way to get a sampling of Byblos' specialties. The Kataifi (baklava), made with pistachios and delicately flavored rose water, was also superb. If you want to impress your friends, order a hookah at your table.

  • Cadot

    18111 Preston Rd. Richardson & Vicinity

    972-267-5700

    Jean-Marie Cadot cooks up some impressive French-New American dishes at this North Dallas destination. His version of escargot, riding in a Pernod-spiked sauce, ranks amongst the best in Dallas. The homemade terrines are memorable, and most other dishes will at least set you to talking - although at review time they were still working out a couple service and kitchen kinks. Still, Cadot is one of the better moderately priced restaurants in the area.

  • Café Brazil

    2815 Elm St. Downtown/Deep Ellum

    214-747-2730

    The original Café Brazil Lakewood location may be lost to history, but its colonies, with eclectic interior designs and attentive staff, live on throughout DFW. There's even a restaurant all the way out in McKinney! It is a well-loved and critically acclaimed local chain that specializes in hearty, inexpensive breakfasts, gourmet roasted coffee from a self-serve station and a smattering of Mexican and Southern-inspired dishes. The chorizo quesadilla, honey-chipotle fish tacos, chicken-fried steak and barbecue salmon are just some of the signature entrées. But it's with breakfast and coffee that Café Brazil really shines. Take, for example, the mammoth Brazilian Breakfast special, the vegetarian migas and house-made crepes. If the self-serve coffee strikes your fancy, there are more than 30 coffees available by the pound for a bit of Café Brazil at home.
