Are you in need of a casual eatery that offers delicious yet comforting food? Well, The Porch seems just right for you. Because of the many classic dishes they offer, this has become one of my favorite lunch spots. I always recommend getting one of their burgers because their flavor always blows me away. Located at 2912 N Henderson Ave, Dallas, TX 75206.
E Bar Tex-Mex
When talking about iconic Texas foods, Ribs and Burgers usually get the most attention. Though, the real Texas food star is no other than Tex-Mex. The best of both worlds Texas and Mexico. If you want to try authentic Tex-Mex, then E Bar Tex-Mex is calling your name. Located at 1901 N Haskell Ave. #120, Dallas, TX 75204.
If you're like me and have a terrible spice tolerance, then you probably stay away from most chili. But if there were ever a time to get back into the spice game, it would be when you are at Tolbert's. This historic restaurant offers some of the best chili you will ever have. It is not too spicy, but just enough to give it that flavor. And do not get me started when you dip tortilla chips in it! Wow, that's amazing. Located at 423 S Main St, Grapevine, TX 76051.
If you ever want to end your night with a bang, then look no further than Tei-An. Modern, unique, and delicious, it is everything you want in a dinner restaurant. They serve excellent Japanese food that always hits the spot. Their sushi is simple yet delicious and has always been my go-to. Located at 1722 Routh St #110, Dallas, TX 75201.
Chop House Burger
Who doesn't love burgers? From McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, it doesn't matter as long as it has two buns and a patty. But there is a big gap between a good burger and a Chop House Burger. You see, Chop House Burger makes burgers on another level. The Texas-sourced beef they use is like no other in terms of flavor and greatness. My personal favorite has always been their original Chop House burger, and I 100% recommend it. Located at 1501 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201.
There is never a bad time to go out to brunch, after all, "It's brunch o'clock somewhere."- according to Ellen's slogan. And Ellen's does do that slogan justice since they serve brunch from 7 A.M. to 9 P.M. On top of that, it isn't like they serve a bad or mediocre brunch; their brunch is amazing. I love all their brunch items especially their pancakes. Located at 1790 N Record St, Dallas, TX 75202.
Pappas Bros. Steakhouse
Regarded as one of the best steakhouses in Texas, you already know Pappas Bros. Steakhouse will bring the heat. Serving exceptional appetizers, steaks, and seafood, Pappas Bros. never leaves you unsatisfied. I recommend getting the Lobster Deviled Eggs as an appetizer and the Filet Mignon as an entrée. Located at 10477 Lombardy Ln, Dallas, TX 75220.
Meso Maya Comida y Copas
We all know how much Texians love their Mexican food. They even created a brand new cuisine from it, Tex-Mex. And they are right, Mexican food is delicious!! However, Meso Maya Comida y Copas takes delicious to another level. The authentic Mexican cuisine served here is like no other I have ever had. My favorite was the typical Carne Asada, it seems like steak but tastes like glory. Located at 1611 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75202.
When you think about Texas, what do you think about? I think about, a big man with a big beard and no sleeves, eating a big pile of barbequed food. What can I say, Texians do love their BBQ. But when it comes to the barbecue served at Pecan Lodge, Texians won't be the only people who love it. This place blows any barbecue I have ever had right out of the water. And do not get me started on their brisket; it is flavorful, tender, juicy, and just amazing. Located at 2702 Main St, Dallas, TX 75226.
Is there a more American dish than a classic burger? America is full of delicious burger joints that range from fast food to high-end restaurants. But what if I told you there is a restaurant that was cheap but tastes like it is high-end. That's the case at one of Dallas's most iconic restaurants. Rodeo Goat offers burgers that will make you never want to go to McDonald's again. Located at 1926 Market Center Blvd, Dallas, TX 75207.
