Dallas does everything big and with more restaurants per capita than New York City, there’s plenty of options to support the growing tourism scene. And because of the quality of the restaurants, it’s no surprise that people here eat out about four times every week. Not only is Dallas renowned for its barbecue, authentic Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine, but it also boasts authentic Indian, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, African, Taiwanese, and Persian cuisine.
Here are a few restaurants we recommend:
