Calling all foodies! Food is a BIG deal in Dallas and no matter what neighborhood you visit, there's something delicious waiting. Here are some recommendations from the locals: 

Meso Maya

Winner of best regional Mexican cuisine, best brunch, and best chef, you can't go wrong! Meso Maya is your go-to for awesome authentic Mexican food.

Lockhart Smokehouse

This no-frills BBQ joint is one of the most famous around - meat is served on butcher paper with classic Southern sides and cold Texas brews. Howdy. 


Famous marshmallow soup and savory souffles... need we say more? You're welcome.


Visit Smoke for upscale BBQ at its finest - it's all local and regionally sourced, and it's all delicious. Try the family-style BBQ board and get a true taste of Texas!

Velvet Taco

20+ different types of tacos featuring flavors from all over the world - such as Ahi poke, Annatto shredded pork with avocado crema, spicy tikka chicken, and more. 

Corrientes 348

Meat lovers, unite! Corrientes 348 brings amazing steaks, classic Argentinian chimichurri, flame-toasted cheese, empanadas, and more to Dallas. Add a caipirinha or a Mendoza malbec to the mix, and you'll be all set. 

Taqueria La Ventana

Taqueria La Ventana (translates to "the window") is a funky, fast-casual taqueria offering everyday, authentic Mexico City street food. High quality and fresh flavors await you! 

Pecan Lodge

One of the top 4 BBQ restaurants in the world! Enjoy juicy homemade sausage, famous brisket, from-scratch pulled pork sandwiches, Aunt Polly's banana pudding, and more. Our mouths are already watering.

Howdy Homemade Ice Cream

Aside from the truly delightful ice cream and sweet treats (some favorite flavors include Dr Pepper Chocolate Chip, Hot Tamale, and Cookie Monster), we give bonus points to them because they employ folks with special needs.
