Dammn... gonna have to track down Hard 8. Been here 7 years and have never HEARD of it mentioned as a top BBQ joint.
To the OP, you might check out a Gloria's if you're near one too. There are several, and they're all very good if you're into El Salvadoran/TexMex.
Im gonna have to try that out too.
To the OP, there is no shortage of restaurants in DFW. A good Mexican place in FW is Joe T. Garcias. Expect a little wait as they are always busy, but it's delicious. They serve it family style and only have like 4 things on the menu.
As as I said earlier, if you want a unique experience, go East a little to Deep Ellum. I live a mile or two from there and they have some cool restaurants.
Deep Ellum is a good spot to hit up a concert now and then. I don't know if I'd recommend eating there. Good pubs, but can be kinda rough at times (I was threatened walking down the street by a couple of mexicans for no reason, maybe they were mad I was with a hot mexican chick on a date). Also You'll have to pay for parking. It's a music scene really, not a dining area.
Uptown has some spots, but it's the rich SMU crowds stomping grounds.
