You won't question if your're in the west while saddling up inside Tillman's. The staff is dressed in western attire and there's plenty of taxidermy on the walls. BUT, if you need another reminder, order the chicken fried steak and ride off into the sunset (after you finish, of course).
This Western spot has he a saloon-like feel with its bar and taxidermy, plus some must-try delicious steak (including the chicken-fried kind).
Stock and Barrel is a hip American-cuisine destination with a neighborly feel, and an entire section of its menu dedicated to French fries. Order offerings such as crushed Yukons with Parmesan and smoked paprika mayo, or try out the meats, seafood, and sides coming out of the wood-fired grill.
Kitchen LTO is a permanent pop-up-hosting space in Dallas that's dishing up, well, dishes from different chefs every quarter.
Quit being a p-word about your diet, and hit Sissy's Southern Kitchen, where Lisa Garza's tapping her Memphis roots in a patio-equipped space where a trio of deer heads rule a wall replete with china, and the fixtures -- salvaged from the 1914 Neiman's inferno -- were crafted by Henry Potter, who despite being a Dallas blacksmith, was also the richest man in Bedford Falls.
FM Smoke House is a bar-anchored, patio-abutted, modernly rustic temple of smoke in Irving.
The name of this Deep Ellum staple pretty much says everything. The towering pancake breakfasts, the chipotle turkey club lunches, the gravy-smothered chicken fried steak dinners -- it's all just really, really good. And with regular live country music acts and quirky mementos, like the colored paper cranes hanging form the ceiling and screen-printed art adorning every wall, taking a seat here is like getting a little slice of Austin without the three-hour drive.
This Uptown spot of like the classier brother of your favorite southern steakhouse franchise, and it's so Texas it hurts (in the good way). Hanging longhorns, cowhide seating, highway signs, and sculptures from well-know artists in the state are merely a backdrop for food that's equally Texan. Southwestern staples and American takes on Mexican fare like chicken tamales, tacos topped with beef brisket and fried oysters, and (of course) top-notch bbq offer up a new experience that manages to maintain that familial feeling one can only get in Texas.
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.
