Dallas & Fort Worth Food
Dallas/Fort Worth’s population ranks the 4th largest in the United States, and if you can imagine, that adds up to a lot of hungry people with unique palates. Thankfully, Dallas and Fort Worth have a wide array of dining options. Whether you’re looking for something fast from a food truck or wanting to try five-star cuisine by award-winning chefs, DFW’s got you covered.
Texas barbecue: it’s the best. More importantly, once you’ve had the real deal and try it elsewhere, it’s just not the same. With that being said, visitors owe it to themselves to try some while they’re here. The Slow Bone, owned by restaurateur Jack Perkins, expects you to come with a voracious appetite. You can anticipate a tray piled high with hearty brisket and a number of perfectly smoked sausages. Don’t forget your sides: mustard greens, sweet-potato casserole, macaroni and cheese, brussel sprout casserole, hushpuppies, cornbread, and if you can still fit it: salad. For a more traditional, no frills institution, check out Angelo’s in Fort Worth. Family-owned and operated for over 50 years, you can ask any local around: these guys know meat.
For something a little more upscale, put on your fancy shoes, and ascend 50 stories up for breathtaking views from Dallas’ Reunion Tower, which is home to famous chef Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty Asian restaurant and bar. Guests can fine dine in the main room or stop in for a cocktail at one of the restaurant’s two bars: the first, a rotating bar facing outwards so patrons can enjoy the view, and a stationary, illuminated glass bar that greets visitors as they exit their elevator ride 560 feet above ground.
Perhaps you’re looking for a savory snack instead of a full-blown meal. A visit to the Magnolia Cheese Company in Fort Worth will win the heart of any true cheese lover. Magnolia is a cut-to-order artisan cheese shop, focused on local and regional selections. The café offers a full menu of sandwiches, salads, and cheese boards that pair perfectly with a glass of wine. They also offer cheese and beer/wine pairing classes.
If you’re looking to try real Texas flavors, sip on cocktails in the sky, or simply snack on some classics, Dallas/Fort Worth has no shortage of options. As a major metropolitan city, rest assured that any hankering you may have or perhaps one you’ve never known can be addressed.
