Dallas: the land of chain restaurants and steaks, right? Well, yes, kind of, but local editor Aaron Miller also wants to guide you through everything from crazy-good pho to delicious smoked meats.
Favorite Restaurant: Sure, it's since sprouted into a chain (they have one in Melbourne?), but the original Bob's Steak and Chop House on Lemmon is easily the best, and for this 3rd-gen Dallasite, it's pretty hard to top a perfectly cooked strip w/ mashed potatoes and Bob's signature glazed carrot.
Best Late-Night Eats: Post-midnight eating's all about striking a balance between booze-absorbing comfort food and buzz-maintaining booziness. That's a game DaLat's got figured out, with great Khanwiches (banh mi) and pho you can wash down with the Dragon Shot, possibly the only Vietnamese-influenced tequila shooter in Dallas.
