What to Eat in Dallas – Fort Worth

One thing is for sure: You definitely won't go hungry in Dallas or Fort Worth. With big business comes big appetites, and this city knows how to satisfy them.

The DFW Metroplex is known for red meat and Tex-Mex. For a prime cut, head to Al Biernat's on the northeast edge of Dallas' Oak Lawn district. You'll spend a pretty penny to eat here, but avid foodies swear the steak is worth the price. If you're craving an elevated take on tacos, diners and critics recommend you try Revolver Taco Lounge. It's pricier than your average taco joint, but diners say the unique offerings (like tender octopus carnitas with fried leeks) are worth the cost. For a no-frills experience, consider Trompo, which earns rave reviews for its simple street-style tacos. For even more Tex-Mex, sign up for one of the best food tours in Dallas.

If you want to expand your palette beyond steak and tacos, Dallas has you covered there, too. Thanks to the metro area's large immigrant population (nearly 5 million), the city offers a varied roster of dining styles reflective of its multicultural residents. You can find most everything your stomach desires, from Mediterranean cuisine to Latin American favorites. For fresh sushi, try Yutaka Sushi Bistro in Uptown, or sample the casual French fare at Boulevardier.

But don't worry: Old-fashioned chili and chicken-fried steak are still staple dishes at many of Dallas and Fort Worth's restaurants. To sink your teeth into some authentic barbecue, try Heim Barbecue in Fort Worth or Cattleack Barbeque and Pecan Lodge in Dallas.
