Dallas Food Bucket List: Iconic Places to Go & Things to Eat in Dallas
Dallasites are passionate about lots of things, sports teams, shopping, big hair, and cars with status symbols. But bring up the topic of food with a local and plan to spend some time listening to the virtues of a perfect chicken steak that sells the best burgers or where you can get the juiciest sliced brisket. (Yes, beef is a great source of hometown pride.) While there are literally thousands of possible bucket list items to try in Dallas (including this separate list of pizza to die for or this one for killer sandwiches), we have a limited selection of iconic dishes and some of the city’s most popular restaurants and watering holes that you simply must visit at least once. Along the way, you will likely find plenty of competitors worth adding, but consider this a fantastic head start.
