Here you can find a wide array of fresh-baked goods made from scratch, from biscuits to scones to cakes and tarts. And to wash it all down, try their coffee, which is sourced from the local Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters.

2. Kuby's Sausage House 6601 Snider Plz, Dallas, TX 75205

Kuby's Sausage House is pretty much as authentic as German food in Dallas can get; it traces its Teutonic roots back to Kaiserslautern in 1728, and serves up some of the best brats in the city.

3. Bubba's Cooks Country 6617 Hillcrest Ave, Dallas, TX 75205 (University Park)

In an old Texaco-turned-art-deco-counter-serve, Bubba’s Cooks Country is a Southern comfort food mainstay in University Park, and has been providing Dallas with some of the area’s best down-home cooking since 1981. Family recipes rule the menu, with a simple menu boasting traditional dishes like chicken-fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade yeast rolls, peach cobbler, and of course, the crispy, golden, buttermilk-fried bird that made Bubba’s famous. Step up to the counter or drive through any day of the week for a taste of Bubba’s buttery, Southern creature comforts.

4. The Mecca Restaurant 5815 Live Oak St, Dallas, TX 75214 (Lakewood)

There's a reason they call it "The Mecca". This spot certainly draws its fair share of visitors because of their serious breakfasts, which can include anything from from fresh cinnamon rolls, bacon, eggs, and pancakes to hearty biscuits & gravy.

5. Jonathon's Oak Cliff 1111 N Beckley Ave, Dallas, TX 75203 (Oak Cliff)

With not one but two daily happy hours, a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, and breakfast served all afternoon, Jonathon's Oak Cliff is pretty easy to love. The popular soul food spot, housed in a charming green clapboard building, serves classic Southern fare all day. While the (literally) award-winning chicken and waffles are the crowd-favorite on the brunch menu, the kitchen serves everything from breakfast tacos to pancake-battered sausages. For dinner, the burgers are the house specialty, ranging from the fresh veggie burger to the famous "Nooner Burger," stacked with bacon, ham, Swiss, and a fried egg. Whether searching for some hearty Southern fare, or a serious hair of the dog, Jonathon's will certainly deliver.

6. Barbec's 8949 Garland Rd, Dallas, TX 75218 (Lakewood)

While these guys serve a number of delicious options (especially for breakfast) one would be wise to try out their massive Beer Biscuits. They're covered in gravy and made with beer. What more could you want?

Since 1956, Norma's has been wrapping up Oak Cliff stomachs in the sweet embrace of authentic Texan comfort food, like their epiphany-inducing biscuits and gravy. The place is an institution with an award-winning menu and famous Mile-High Cream Pies™. The place is a total throwback with an authentic diner atmosphere and wholesome, friendly waitstaff.
