    Food in Dallas

    I will be heading to Dallas for a conference next week, staying near Market Center. Anyone have any suggestions for good food in that area? I have never been and would like to try something unique. I don't really have a preference on type, just good grub.

    Thanks!

    Not for the food, but for the game Saturday...McFadden's in Addison. There isn't an official game watch this weekend but if you are still in town Saturday there is usually a crowd of Cardinal and Gold there.

    I went to Saltgrass Steakhouse and Hard 8 BBQ when I was down there a month ago, both were pretty good.

    Steak is an obvious choice for Texas. If you want something unique, maybe try a Brazilian Steakhouse. I think the Dallas/Ft. Worth area has a few. Get a pile of red meat and make sure you drink lots of caipirihinas. You won't be disappointed.

    I've eaten at both as well and agree.
    Hard 8 you have to be prepared, you ask for a bit of brisket and you get half a cow.

    Never made it to Sonny Bryans BBQ

    Re: Food in Dallas

    Steak in Texas sucks by comparison to Midwest steaks. There's a reason that BBQ originated in TX and that's because the meat was so tough that they had to marinate it in something to soften it up.

    CBD Provisions (1530 Main St) in the Hotel Joul is really good!
    Wolfgang Puck's 560 at the top of Reunion Tower is actually good food and a good sushi bar in there too. It rotates so you get a great view of the city.
    Dee Lincoln's Burger Bar is good (Dee is the original founder of Del Frisco's Steak House).
    The Lower Greenville area has a lot of choices as does the McKinney Avenue area.

    Babb's is good, but there are a couple other good BBQ joints too. We go to Babb's a lot just to support Chris' family and get updates on him. But the Pecan Lodge is great, as is the Slow Bone and Sonny Bryans.

    There are a lot of trendy little joints that are great, but I'd recommend skipping the chains like Salt Grass and Texas Land & Cattle as they aren't much better than Chilis.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Pecan Lodge for BBQ. Only open certain days/times, and get there early.

    It didn't originate in Texas, but I understand what you're saying.

    Re: Food in Dallas

    I put Babb's up there in comparison with Cactus Bob's in Johnston (which is my favorite).

    Lot of unique foods in the Deep Ellum area, would recommend that. Standard Pour in Uptown is delicious.

    Just went to the Rustic for the first time last week and it was delicious. (In the Uptown area).

    A lot of decent-pretty good Mexican places, Pepe and Mitos, Mannys Uptown.

    But my favorite affordable restaurant is Babbs.

    Re: Food in Dallas

    Hard 8 bbq is the ****.

    It's in Carroltown, Coppell area, but worth the 15 minute drive from where you are staying.

    Source: me, just moved back to Iowa after living in Coppell for 2 years.

    I miss the Tex-mex food in Dallas........................

    If you get the craving for AMAZING chili cheese fries and burgers try Snuffers. 6 or 7 locations around Dallas.

    Try to find a Bone Daddy's......BBQ with a big side of smoking hot waitress.

    I saw Tony Romo in there. So it must be good
