From Southern comforts to Tex-Mex to killer brunch or burgers, there are plenty of great places to eat in Dallas that everyone will love, no matter what your taste buds prefer.

Tacos

Tacos are one of many Dallas specialties. You’ll find deliciously seasoned carne asada tacos at Maskaras Mexican Grill, a lucha libre (Mexican professional wrestling) themed restaurant. Or, if you’re on the north side, stop at Urban Taco for fresh twists on classics.

Burgers

If you’re in Texas, you’ve got to try the Texas-based, 1950s chain Whataburger, which provides a classic—and classy—diner experience, promising excellent burgers and shakes. For something a little different, try Rodeo Goat where you can order the Royale With Cheese, featuring spiked ketchup and jalapeno bacon.

Brunch

If you’re a fan of carbs, then you really need to set aside a morning for brunch at Bread Winners Cafe. With a long list of waffles, pancakes and French toast flavors to choose from, you may want to set aside time for a nap, too. If you want something slightly more upscale and with a real Southern comfort food vibe, head to Hattie’s Restaurant where you can fill up on a Bloody Mary, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes and other staples.

Celebrate Love with an Unconventional Valentine’s Day

It’s so sweet!

A romantic, candle-lit table for two is never a bad thing. But sometimes, a change of scenery is just what you need to celebrate your love for another. This year, try one of these unconventional Valentine’s Day dates.

Active Adventure

Instead of sitting in front of a movie theatre screen, plan a date where you and your partner can be active. Sip hot cocoa and work on your axles at the local ice skating rink. Or, take a rock-climbing class at a local facility.

Get Creative

If you and your partner are a little less athletic and a little more creative, look for different classes offered in your area. You might try painting, sculpting, writing or even all three. If you both have a love for good food, a couples cooking class might even start a new Friday night tradition.

Have an Indoor Take-Out Picnic

Instead of making reservations at a busy restaurant, create your own ambient restaurant at home. Lay blankets on the floor of your living room and set up candles and your favorite romantic music. Then, order your favorite take-out and pick up a nice bottle of wine or two and have a romantic night in.
