Thread: Best restaurant in the North Dallas Tollway area

  1. #1

    Best restaurant in the North Dallas Tollway area

    So the stretch from 635 to George Bush seems to have an enormous number of steakhouses and what seem like upscale restaurants. I'll eventually try every one but where should I start?

    The best is Del Frisco's, so save it for last. III Forks is also really solid. Chamberlain's is great as is Chamberlain's Fish Market. If you're big, and really hungry, Fogo de Chao. TruLuck's is another good one specializing in seafood.

    i'm with 244335. Del Frisco's (the original) is absolutely genius. and i'm a huge fan of Chamberlain's.

    you've got to hit up Mi Piaci for Italian. Beltline & Montfort.

    http://www.mipiaci-dallas.com/

    the Hooters on Beltline has some serious talent (the times i've been).

    Slim pickins in that area, but Del Fiscos and III Forks for steak (I prefer Del Frisco's). Lots of people swear by Chamberlain's too, but I have not been. Oceanaire at the Westin is excellent if you want seafood. The Second Floor, also at the Westin, apparently also has good food and an interesting $#@!tail program, but it just looks like a hotel restaurant to me.

    Obviously Del Frisco's and Chamberlains are probably the top 2. I'm also a fan of Lawry's as well.

    Obviously Del Frisco's is excellent and would be #1 in my book, however at a little lower price point...Kenny's Wood Fired Grill is pretty damn good.

    Torchy's is less than a mile south of the tollway and 635.

    Del Frisco's is probably the best steak choice in those parameters, though Rafain (DNT and Frankford) is IMO better than Texas de Brazil or Fogo if you're more in that kind of mood (probably on par with Fogo, but cheaper, so it wins).

    +1 for Mi Piaci.

    Also worth noting in that corridor:
    -Blue Mesa (@ Beltline)
    -Grill on the Alley (@ Galleria)
    -Uncle Julio's (@ Keller Springs)
    -Blue Fish (@ Frankford)
    -Soho (@ Beltline)

    And just outside, Abuelo's (@ Parker) is pretty solid, too.

    And while I like Nate's, it's way the $#@! over at Midway. It's not "on the Tollway."

    I'm hoping the Maggiano's was a joke. Otherwise, EABOD and DIAF.

    i'll vouch for these. Uncle Julio's has my favorite fajitas in the world. and they make their own flour tortillas (which pleases C-Man).

    Uncle Julio's also does fajita catering where they bring a grill on a trailer to the site. It's pretty outstanding.

    I'm a fan of their carne asada as well.

    Look, if you want to be a food snob (I'm one), fine. If you want to fail to recognize that Maggiano's is damn good and all from scratch, because you like to sound cool voicing displeasure of "chains" even if they are good...fine.

    Do not ever, ever try and tell anyone that Maggiano's sucks in the same breath as recommending $#@!ing Abuelo's. Jesus.

    Goddamn right. Uncle Julio's fajitas are legit.

    Went to the Chuy's up Tollway with a pledge brother of mine today. They make their own tortillas too. So does Blue Goose on Midway (and so might Manny's). I'm also a fan of BJ's Brewhouse. There's a Jake's Hamburgers on Belt Line. Rudy's is further up the road in Frisco.

    Maggiano's sucks. I have never once had an enjoyable meal there. I like some chain Italian places. You might as well point out there's also an Olive Garden on Beltline.

    On the DNT, you're less than 5 minutes from Antonio's (Addison Circle). Less than 10 from Ruggeri's (Preston and Frankford). Both are exponentially better. Not to mention Cafe Amore, Buca di Beppo, and lord knows how many other chain Italian places of varying levels of quality.

    And yeah, Abuelo's is a chain, too. It's not nearly as good as Uncle Julio's...but it's not bad, either. Maybe my fondness is just a result of the years I spent in Lubbock, where it was one of the better available choices. It's still not bad, and I'd still go there over, say, On the Border or something.

    I'll take Maggiano's veal marsala over Ristorante Nicola. Tastes better, better value and decent wines by the glass that are affordable as well. You also get a ton of food at Maggiano's for leftover lunch the next day.

    Isn't that north of George Bush? Probably why it hasn't been mentioned.

    Maggianos, good but corporate style Italian food. Nothing special, but nothing bad. They are best known for the enormous portions they serve. Entree sized pastas can feed like 4 people, so you see most people who don't split stuff, leaving with bags of leftovers. They also do private events very well and the restaurants usually have lots of private rooms and a whole private party bar area upstairs. I'd put it at the top (or near the top) of the chain Italian restaurant list -- way better than Olive garden. But, still considerably below any good, chef driven local Italian place.

    Went to the "Italian Club of Dallas" yesterday for lunch. It is on Inwood in Addison just a couple of blocks SW of the Tollway and Beltline. Stuck in a shopping center between a bunch of liquor stores.

    They are open for lunch Tues - Friday 11:30 to 2. They serve a 4 course lunch for $12.

    I've thought about stopping in for a couple of years, but never did before yesterday. I recommend it. I'd give it 4.5 "it slams" out a 5 "it slams" scale.

    Seriously, give it a shot if you are in the area. Their website is not very informative, but it is a good experience. They are open to the public.

    I will very rarely go to a steak house, and it is usually after a decent amount of time between. I'd much rather cook my own steak and there's only been one time that I've had a steak that I thought was better than one that I could cook and that was at Shula's in Florida. With that being said, sans the steak house recommendations, I'll check out some of the other suggestions mentioned here. Hell, I thought Maggianos was great - the food was good, nice portions, and the general atmosphere and service were excellent.

    maggiano's is the chilli's of italian food.

    i do not understand why people eat at corporate, chain restaurants. if i'm gonna spend money on a meal, i want to eat at a place where the guy that designed the menu actually works in the kitchen of the restaurant.

    Probably the same reason that people continue to go to Starbucks - consistency and it tastes good.

    Hey, I got a chance to check out Chamberlain's. Really, really, really good food (bone-in filet and grits) and fantastic service.

    Ate at Social 121 last night. It's a little further up the Tollway (at 121), but damn good. They just opened this week.
