Best Dallas Restaurants

I have lived in Dallas my entire life! The good thing is I know some really great places to eat. The bad thing is so many new restaurants open and it’s nearly impossible to try them all! Today I am sharing my go to best Dallas restaurants, so if you are ever visiting the area you have a wide variety to choose from! Remember, these are MY personal favorites and everyone has their own opinions. I also have a full Dallas Travel Guide here.

Best Dallas Restaurants

Breakfast/Brunch:

  • Yolk: One of our favorites! We always bring friends here when they come in town. Simple, easy breakfast food, amazing waffles.
  • Snooze: Very similar to Yolk in my opinion. Great food, normal breakfast type stuff.
  • Crossroads Diner: Best quality “diner” food you’ll have! Very family friendly!
  • Oddfellows: A little more “hip” fun for couples, in a cool area of town. Great drinks!
  • Breadwinners: Lots of locations around DFW, AMAZING french toast and bread.
  • Hash house a gogo: A little more fun, huge portions, insane drinks.
  • Taverna: Incredible patio, delicious food.
  • Toulouse: Really yummy menu, perfect for a fun girls brunch.

Lunch/Dinner:

  • Neighborhood Services: A great go to date night spot, delicious food, the appetizers are amazing.
  • Town Hearth: Really cool space, funky decor, great steaks!
  • Sprezza: TO DIE FOR Italian food, amazing patio.
  • Hillstone: Been going here forever. Great for lunch, dinner, patio drinks, etc. Have the fries!
  • Mi Cocina: Our go to Mexican! The queso is amazing, everything really is amazing. Have a mambo taxi.
  • Masero: Fun for a date night or night out with friends. The nachos and Ceviche are great!
  • Wildwood: Saturday nights half priced bottles of wine, the spinach dip is great!
  • Eddie V’s: Perfect for an anniversary, we had our rehearsal dinner here!
  • Flower Child: Healthy food, great for lunch! Lemonade is amazing, have a salad!
  • Ida Claire: Really cool place, fun for a girls birthday brunch/dinner.

    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.

  8. I live in McKinney! The Porch is a favorite of mine. One of my friends went to SMU (long before we lived here) and she turned us onto The Porch.
