For the first time in, well, a really long time, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah are colliding. In honor of the holiday that doesn't put turkey at the epicenter of its celebratory meal, here's a few suggestions on where to eat latkes (aka potato pancakes, that crispy-fried favorite of Hanukkah foods), whether you're actually celebrating the Festival of Lights or just want to eat like it.

11111 N Central Expy
Dallas, TX 75230

The latkes at this neighborhood favorite New York-style deli are thin, flat, and extra-crispy around the edges, served with your choice of tangy sour cream or sweet applesauce for smearing on top (we like 'em with both). Go big with an order of five, or opt for the smaller side portion (two) and pair them with a bowl of steaming matzoh ball soup for a perfect cold-weather meal that might find you needing a nap afterwards.

The wide, flat potato pancakes at this Russian-Jewish deli are cooked to an extra-crispy deep golden brown, like a McDonald's hash brown on steroids. Order 'em alone with the traditional sides of applesauce and sour cream, or as a side cozied up to tender sliced brisket smothered in brown gravy.

3. Henk's European Deli & Black Forest Bakery

5811 Blackwell St
Dallas, TX 75231
(214) 987-9090

The shredded potato pancakes at this charming little German spot in Lake Highlands are thin and pan-fried to a dark brown crispy deliciousness on the outside. Get them as a starter (paired with applesauce, of course) or as a side with the not-at-all-Hanukkah-appropriate sausage sampler, or the sauerbraten (braised beef in a sweet-and-sour sauce).

4. Kenny's Wood Fired Grill

Copy Link
5000 Belt Line Rd
Dallas, TX 75254
(972) 392-9663
Visit Website
The latkes here are known as "Bubbie's Potato Cakes," with an extra-crispy, golden brown fried exterior that's filled with creamy mashed potatoes rather than the traditional shredded spuds. They come topped with a tangy lemon-dill sour cream, scallions, and bits of smoky bacon, which is pretty sacreligious for Hanukkah — but as the menu at Kenny's notes, they're happy to modify any dish on request (and they're just as good without the pork products).

5. Kuby's Sausage House

Copy Link
6601 Snider Plz
Dallas, TX 75205
(214) 363-2231
Visit Website
The potato pancakes at this Snider Plaza mainstay are crisp and buttery on the edges, thick and fluffy in the middle and hearty enough to make a meal out of — and to be honest, far superior to the ones our oma (err, grandma) used to make. Sorry, oma. They come flanked by both applesauce and sour cream for topping, but naturally we recommend a mashup of both.

6. The Original Pancake House

Potato pancakes might not be the kind of flapjacks you have in mind when you think of this popular breakfast destination, but you should definitely order them: They're super-thin and lacy, flanked by sides of sour cream and cinnamon-y applesauce, and they come half-a-dozen to an order — a good thing, because all your tablemates will be clamoring for a bite.
