Metroplex Daily Insider and Local Information back


When it comes to eating out, you literally have over 10,000 places to choose from in Dallas-Fort Worth! However, from my experiences, it seems that the restaurants that are right-on a major highway, tend to be anywhere from $3 to $5 higher than the eateries that are couple of blocks off major highway (such as North Central Expressway, I-35, etc.)

An average lunch meal cost is usually around $10 in the Metroplex. A word of caution, if a restaurant says that they don't have a menu and that they'll bring food out for you to choose from, be prepared to spend at least $20 per person -- in other words, ask about the cost before the surprise. One of the biggest problems with eating out in Dallas is acoustics. Generally speaking, a lot of the restaurants aren't equipped to handle multiple conversations (due to poor acoustics); therefore, some restaurants are quite noisy.

A few of restaurant "hot" spots in the area would be Addison, TX (Belt Line Road and all around that area), North Central Expressway (H75), The North Dallas Tollway, and Stemmons Freeway (I35). These areas have a lot of restaurants. But, don't be mistaken; there are hundreds of other eating spots in Dallas and Fort Worth.

Check out the Metroplex Daily: Restaurant page for more places and ideas of where to eat.
