The cheesiest house speciality award definitely goes to Ddong Ggo’s Cheese Island. This gooey masterpiece features an iron skillet on a table burner filled with shredded white cheese. Once the cheese has melted, the pile of fried chicken wings and Jenga-stacked fries become the island. To add to the cheese-fueled experience, there are also nacho Cheetos french fries and soups topped with Kraft singles.

Is there a more perfect food than cheese pizza? Probably not. Dallas is littered with cheese-topped mediocrity, but the thin crust, cheese-laden slices at Zoli’s are New York-style perfection.

Dallas, TX 75207
(214) 741-4628

Rodeo Goat may be better known for inventive burgers, but those with a love for cheese should turn their attention to the fries. Order the Cheese Fries No Surprise with bacon and jalapeños, or go all in with the Cheese Fries Surprise topped with brisket chili. 

7. Sassetta

1617 Hi Line Dr Ste 395
Dallas, TX 75207
(214) 307-5690

When the rest of the dinner party insists on ordering the burnt honey pizza, it’s important to make sure there’s still something cheesy on the table. Start things off with the whipped ricotta appetizer—the olive oil and pillowy soft ricotta ratio is spot-on, and grilled sourdough is the perfect vehicle. 

8. Meso Maya Comida y Copas

Copy Link
1611 McKinney Ave
Dallas, TX 75202
(214) 484-6555
Visit Website

The top queso contender in Dallas is a hot button topic, but Meso Maya never disappoints. With melted Chihuahua and pepper jack cheese and poblano chiles, nopales and fresh corn, you’ll never settle for the Velveeta stuff again. Get wild and add a pile of smoky brisket for an extra $2. 

9. Beto & Son

3011 Gulden Ln #108
Dallas, TX 75212
(469) 249-8590

It’s tough to get cheesier than queso fundido, a cheesy dish that bears little resemblance to its similarly-named Texan counterpart. At this Trinity Groves restaurant, find a blend of melty Mexican cheeses mixed with chorizo, sliced poblanos, and cilantro pesto that’s just waiting to be tucked into a warm flour tortilla.

10. Cheesesteak House

2015 W Davis St
Dallas, TX 75208
(469) 941-4389

This Oak Cliff favorite improves on Philly’s favorite sandwich — the cheesesteak — with a giant scoop of gooey, melty queso.

Move over, American cheese. This Mockingbird Station sandwich shop serves up a mean grilled cheese for every taste. Pick from options like house-made grilled pimento cheese or treat yourself to Brie & bacon grilled cheese, made with gooey Brie, crispy bacon and caramelized onion.
