The culinary scene in Dallas is downright exciting. Whether you’re waiting in line for barbecue at Pecan Lodge or dining for a cause at Chad Houser’s Café Momentum, grabbing a quality meal in The Big D is about the experience—and the best restaurants in Dallas offer it in droves. While stopping in for tacos at Mia’s Tex Mex or a steak at Al Biernat’s is always a solid option, locals are fixed on funky fusion restaurants like Madrina, which serves up French-inspired Mexican fare, and Matt McCallister’s creative farm-to-fork creations at FT33.
