Best Restaurants in Dallas

After 18 months, we’re finally bringing back our 50 Best Restaurants in Dallas. Not to trot out another best list. Not to glaze over the last year and a half of strife and hardship in an industry throttled on all sides daily. But because, despite those struggles, we still have incredible restaurants to visit after it all. And we should celebrate that fact.


We haven’t released a 50 Best Restaurants since 2019. Dining critic Eve Hill-Agnus and online dining editor Rosin Saez hashed out a new list, fit for our current era of dining. Right now, that’s incredible modern Brazilian. It’s braised rabbit sopes tucked away in a speakeasy bar behind a coffee shop.


Twice a year we will applaud the restaurants making Dallas’ ever-evolving dining scene so fantastically delicious. Join us on this journey, eating your way through old favorites and thrilling newcomers alike.
