  • The Dream Cafe

    5100 Beltline Rd. North Dallas

    972-503-7326

    Eats from across the globe converge at this anything-but-greasy-spoon diner that has served customers for more than 17 years. Great place for a weekday breakfast or a weekend brunch, with their Cloud Cakes and whole wheat pancakes or a variety of Tex Mex-style egg dishes such as migas and Austin tacos. Enjoy a mocha latte while taking advantage of free Wi-Fi in a purple booth. If you're still there for lunch, order the shrimp tacos or pasta pignoli with Dallas mozzarella or the Santa Fe salad with grilled chicken, avocados, cherry tomatoes and goat cheese. For the peace-love-and-brown-rice set there's organic black beans and brown rice, the main part of the Global Dinner. For those with tots, there is an outdoor jungle gym and a lovely patio, though a condo development has seriously cut into what was once an outdoor playground for kids and adults alike.

  • 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.

  • Razzoo's Cajun Cafe

    3270 S. Central Expressway, Mc Kinney Allen/McKinney

    469-547-6130

    We look at it as the poor man's Pappadeaux, with humbler aspirations and much humbler prices. Funny thing is, the more we go there, the more we like it; it's gotten to the point where we'd rather sit at a tin-topped table at Razzoo's than wait in line at Pappadeaux. The blackened tilapia fillet, for example, rings in at barely over $10, and it was moist, tasty, and fresh in a meuniere sauce, accompanied by dirty rice and broccoli. Other stuff by this locally based chain is even cheaper. We ordered the spicy chicken tenders for the small child but ended up eating most of them ourselves; we also enjoyed an excellent side order of rich red beans and rice. For dessert, don't miss the exceptional bread pudding.

  • Abuelo's

    1041 W. Interstate 20 Arlington

    817-468-2622

    Since 1989, Abuelo's Mexican Food Embassy has been shuttling back and forth with Mexican and Tex-Mex diplomacy. Both cuisines are available on the menu -- and in generous portions. However, it's the Mexican food that is favored by the kitchen. The house specialties include Stuffed Chicken Medallions (fried chicken breast stuffed with chorizo, Poblano chilies and cheese) and Pescado Guerrero (wood-grilled, mahi-mahi with shrimp, scallops, mushrooms, spinach, roasted peppers and sliced avocado in a white-wine sauce). The combo platters, named after cities like Nogales and Laredo, are where the Tex-Mex shines with all its border-crossing festiveness. The Juarez comes with a crispy beef taco, a tamale, sour cream chicken enchilada and a cheese enchilada. Enjoy any of the aforementioned dishes with a signature drink, like the sangria-margarita hybrid.
  • Addison Café

    5290 Belt Line Rd., Suite 108 North Dallas

    972-991-8824

    Quiet, white tablecloth French restaurant has been open since the mid-1980s. The service and some of the cooking seems a lot older-and that's a good thing if you're a fan of traditional dishes such as duck l'orange or steak au poivre.

  • 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.

  • Akbar Indian Restaurant

    301 W. Parker Rd., Ste. 115 Plano

    972-422-4398

    No-fuss Indian food seems to do the trick when it comes to pleasing the masses, but Akbar does much more with its Mughal (North Indian) cuisine. Specialty dishes include Barra Akbari (skewered lamb marinated with yogurt and spices and grilled over charcoal fire). And don't fret about the apparent absence of curry on the menu at first glance -- a closer look reveals the Murg Curry Shahajani, a chicken dish from the time of the Shah Jahan, the emperor who built the Taj Mahal, or perhaps the Murg Goblwala with cauliflower. Samosas also make an appearance, as does the omnipresent lunch buffet. Thankfully, the Mughal food (otherwise know as royal cuisine) doesn't come with a hefty price tag. Plus, the BYOB policy doesn't hurt.
  • 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.

  • Alligator Cafe

    9540 Garland Rd. White Rock Lake Area

    214-821-6900

    A perennial winner of the Observer's "Best Cajun" honor, Alligator Café is a counter-service take on South Louisiana cuisine. The restaurant is a reliable source of boiled crawfish come mudbug season, and the popular pies tend to sell out before closing time. The East Dallas restaurant's good cheer and boudin balls have won over eaters, and the Cajun eatery also offers occasional live blues on the weekends from the likes of local luminaries.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Angelo's Spaghetti House

    6341 La Vista Dr. East Dallas & Lakewood

    214-823-5566

    The giant, complimentary garlic rolls are reason enough to visit this Lakewood bistro. But the culinary fare that comes along with it is just as good. The sampler plates are particularly tasty. Choose from choices such as the chicken parmesan, cheese ravioli with marinara sauce and fettuccine alfredo plate and the seafood manicotti, shrimp pomodora and shrimp diavolo plate. For workweek lunches, try the all-you-can-eat buffet.

  • Another Broken Egg

    1152 N. Buckner Blvd. White Rock Lake Area

    214-954-7182

    From the North shore of Lake Pontchartrain, Ron E. Green's spot has spread its yolks and whites across the Gulf States. The Dallas branch is near its own landmark body of water, but not in a quaint cottage like the original. This Another Broken Egg Café is in a dull strip mall. Nevertheless, it does serve the same fresh, creative takes on morning and lunch grub. Among the menu options are the crab cakes cavallo, an eggs benedict special and bananas foster with a choice of pancake, waffle or French toast and beignets.

  • 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.

  • Arirang Korean Kitchen

    2625 Old Denton Road, #556 Carrollton/Farmers Branch

    972-242-2404

    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.

  • ArtPark

    331 Singleton Blvd #100 West Dallas

    469-722-564242

    ArtPark at Trinity Groves is a large beer garden anchored by one main restaurant, EATS, that serves a variety of American fare like ArtPark Bombs: fried, bacon-wrapped chicken bites with jalapeños for an extra flavor burst. There are almost-state-fair-like Spaghetti-O Fritters and flat-top-grilled cheeseburger too. The space is flanked by all the restaurants at Trinity Groves and serves as additional seating for those spaces. TVs and firepits throughout the space, as well as games like cornhole, make this a great gathering spot. As an ode to the neighborhood, the art work on the surrounding walls feature West Dallas street artist.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
