So as y'all know I was born in Dallas, left when I was 4, and then went back for college. Now that I'm back in the desert heat of Arizona, there are definitely some things I miss about the Big D.
I miss the food. Don't get me wrong, AZ has some pretty bomb food too, but there are some restaurants in Dallas that I'm craving and can't wait to go back and eat at.
If you're ever in the area, here are the best places to get yo grub on!
1. Fuzzy's Taco Shop
Chicken Tacos= Amazing, Butt Burning Hot Sauce Salsa (always on the tables)= Amazing, Big Ol' Margarita= Aaaaamazing
Don't judge this book by its cover! The name is a little weird for sure, but their food, especially their chicken tacos, are the shiznit. Order the tacos with everything on it, don't skip out on their to die for condiments and toppings. The best tacos ever! Seriously. And you HAVE to add the salsa that's on the table to whatever you order. TRUST ME. It's heaven in your mouth!!
This restaurant is the ultimate chill place to eat. Flat screen TVs are abundant, huge chalices of margaritas and beer, and of course homemade tortilla chips served with warm salsa. Mmmmmm!
2. Fish City Grill
The Best EVER seafood restaurant. You can find them scattered all over the Dallas area, but I always went to the Flower Mound, Texas location. Freaking love love love their salmon dish and my fave lunch-time item was the Mediterranean Pasta, but I added Cajun chicken to it. The bomb. Either salmon or the pasta is what you MUST try here.
They also have a jalapeno soup that's very good and very popular. This place is a nice hang out restaurant where you can come with a date or come with the fam. Beer and wine and hard liquor are all served up and there's usually a baseball game on the TV too. Amazing-ness. Eat there. You will love it.
3. Patrizio's Italian Restaurant
My all time favorite pasta resides at this place. This is a fancy restaurant that is very VERY well priced. You can sit inside their fancy dining room or sit out on the patio where there's a fireplace burning, twinkly lights strung above, and space heaters glowing during the winter time.
Order the Penne Caprese. You won't be disappointed. It's light and lemony and amazing. They have a fully stocked bar and white leather chairs at every table. Candlelight and soft music equal a great date restaurant.
Good eats. Go there!
Ohhhh how I miss good old Dallas. There's so many good restaurants but these are definitely my top three. Try them out if you're in the area and let me know what you think! xo
