Discover the Top Restaurants in Dallas You Need to Visit

Dallas has rapidly become a culinary capital in Texas and is giving other big cities in the state a run for their money (yeah, we’re talking about you, Austin, and Houston).

The restaurants in Dallas are an eclectic mix of Texas-based foods and global cuisines. You never feel like you’re missing out because chances are, whatever you are craving can be found in a local restaurant.

The entire city is teeming with options, but if you live in the Northern Dallas area here are some excellent places to eat.

Best Restaurants in Dallas

  • Cattleack BBQ
  • Velvet Taco
  • Royal China Restaurant

Prepare to take some notes about your upcoming dinner plans, date spots, and late night munchie locations.

Classic Texas-Style BBQ

Texas-style BBQ is distinctive due it’s direct heat cook method; meats are cooked close over mesquite wood which gives the meat its patented smokey flavor.

Okay, maybe it’s not actually patented, but it should be because it’s that tasty.

The best BBQ place to hit in Dallas is Cattleack BBQ. Cleverly named, Cattleack BBQ is a non fussy lunch place that’s only open Thursday, and Friday 10 am to 2:30 pm.

Don’t let the narrow hours of operation deter you. If you’re a Dallas resident, you’ve probably heard of Cattalack. And chances are, you know someone who has waited in line eat the pork ribs and smoked brisket, and they’ve done so gleefully.

Velvet Taco

Dallas, like many Texas cities, has a plethora of delicious Tex-Mex restaurants.

But if you’re looking for tacos mixed with something different, Velvet Taco is worth visiting. Velvet Taco is not a Texan creation. It is a national chain, but it is so good that it must be included on this list.

Open late nights; Velvet Taco is a global food tour on a flour or corn vehicle. Examples include tikka chicken, Cuban-style pork, shrimp and grits, and Nashville hot tofu.

They have several Dallas restaurants, so no matter where you end up, you are guaranteed a satisfying meal.

Looking to save some money for you and your friends? Ask for the $20 backdoor chicken: you’ll receive an entire rotisserie chicken and taco fixings for only $20 bucks.

Royal China Restaurant

Finding authentic Chinese food in a sea of American Chinese restaurants can be difficult. However, at Royal China Restaurant, your search is over.

Royal China, family-owned and operated for over 40 years, serves fresh hand-pulled noodles and homemade dumplings.

Open every day, people from around the city make the trek to visit Royal China, but residents of Park Fountains at Preston Hollow are only an 8-minute drive away.

During your visit, you must order the soup dumplings and any of their noodle dishes: the dian dian and la mian are customer favorites.

Where Are You Going First?

These are just a few of the best restaurants in Dallas. Start here and work your way south. Just remember to pace yourself.

Otherwise, you’ll spend all of your disposable income on eating out. It would be an enjoyable experience, to be sure, but your wallet will thank you for resisting temptation.
