      I’ve only been up to Dallas once (besides layovers at DFW) when my husband and I went for BGG Spring last year. My best friend lives in the Dallas area, so we met her and her boyfriend for dinner one evening and I believe it was at Mi Cocino. It was so good! We will probably be back for BGG again so I’ll have to try some of these other ones out.
