The Dallas-Fort Worth is a sprawling Metroplex of 9,286 square miles. And in that land mass, there are a lot of great restaurants. This list aims to guide visitors and locals alike to great new locations, up-and-coming eateries, and established restaurants at the top of the food game, all at various price points and featuring the numerous cuisines that shine in DFW.
Eater Dallas’s list of the 38 Essential Restaurants in fair North Texas is updated quarterly. This fall’s update sees a nearly complete overhaul, ushering in a fresh list of places to go and delights to taste. The latest updates see some old school favorites on the map for winter, including Tolbert’s Chili in Grapevine, the restaurant at Rosewood Mansion, and the return of Neighborhood Services for some great comfort food. And welcome to Sadelle’s, the new reigning queen of brunch in big D, and Ellie’s Restaurant and Lounge, whose newest chef makes a big impression.
Call ahead to ensure each restaurant is open and for updates on current offerings, as these things change constantly. Wear a mask when required, tip well, and try to order directly from the restaurants if you’re ordering delivery.
