1. Mr Mesero 4444 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75205 (Uptown)

The guy behind Mi Cocina finally has another restaurant, and it's been worth the wait. In a space both intimate and vibrant, with vivid artwork contrasting nicely against exposed brick walls, Mr Mesero combines Americanized favorites with full-on Mexican dishes with outstanding results. The quekas laguera (pastry pockets stuffed with cheese and chicken or brisket) are definitely a standout. This joint also boasts what may be the best guac in all of the Big D, with a variety based on spice, zest, and ingredients -- one has serrano and onion crisps thrown in there.
