Top 6 Dallas Restaurants
(Don’t take our word for it! Check out the TripAdvisor reviews linked below to read reviews from diners.)
The French Room (French Cuisine)
Set inside the Adolphus Hotel, The French Room is nationally and critically acclaimed — called not only the best restaurant in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but the best in all of Texas. This is fine dining — so mind the dress code. Few people leave The French Room disappointed in their experience, often citing the impeccable decor and decadent dishes that keep them coming back for more. It’s pricey, but so very worth it.
Fearing's Restaurant (Southwestern Cuisine)
Another pricey entry on our list, Fearing’s Restaurant is praised for consistent excellence, both from the friendly, charming service to imaginative entrees and desserts. This food is full of spice and bold flavor, true to Texas spirit. Don’t forget to try the tortilla soup!
Baboush (Mediterranean Cuisine)
Baboush is a more affordable option when looking for tasty Dallas restaurants. Again praised for consistent quality, Baboush offers a wide array of classic Mediterranean foods like kebabs, falafel and shwarma.
Off the Bone Barbeque (BBQ)
No one does beef barbecue quite like Texas. Off the Bone has been declared “slap your mama good” by one parton on TripAdvisor, which means they have probably eaten at the Germantown Commissary here in Memphis 'cause that has been their slogan for years! While others rave about tender brisket, succulent chicken and potato salad that’s just right. Off the Bone isn’t just affordable barbecue, but one of the best barbecue joints in Dallas.
Lucia (Italian Cuisine)
Looking for a taste of Italia? Lucia has it. While its atmosphere isn’t particularly stand out, there’s a reason Lucia is difficult to get into — people love to eat there. The house-made salumi is a must-try. Grab some authentic Italian cuisine here and don’t forget to ask your waiter or waitress about the wine! They’ll make a perfect match.
Hopdoddy Burger Bar (Burgers)
Sometimes, nothing beat a good hamburger. This Dallas, TX restaurant gets busy, so be sure to arrive early. Fresh made buns and fresh ingredients combined with perfectly cooked patties and seasoning means you’ll have a hard time going back to burger chains. This is a favorite joint for plenty of Dallas folks — and for good reason!
While you’re in Dallas, TX, stop by at least one of the city’s great local restaurants. You won’t regret it.
