DFW Restaurant Week menus are now live

The full list of restaurants participating in DFW Restaurant Week is now live. More than 100 Metroplex-area restaurants are participating in the annual fundraiser, which begins August 31 and benefits the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope, a nonprofit organization that works with Tarrant County children in need. This year, with the coronavirus pandemic ongoing, the fundraiser will look a little different. Both Lena Pope and the NTFB have opted to take a smaller percent of the proceeds — 10 percent instead of 20 percent — so that more funds can support the participating restaurants, many of which have struggled due to COVID-19. In addition, several of the restaurants are offering takeout and to-go meals in lieu of dining in.

With the Texas State Fair cancelled this year, Corndog With No Name has found a way to offer up funnel cakes, elote-style Texian corn cobs, curly fries and more with a new pop-up drive thru at at 10220 Technology Boulevard in Dallas. The cheekily-named restaurant was founded by a member of the iconic Fletcher’s family, which is also selling its corn dogs at pop-ups throughout the city. (Fletcher’s won a legal battle over the second restaurant’s original name, Fletch.) Corndog with No Name will be open Fridays from 5-9 p.m. and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
