We have evolved enough as human beings to start choosing not just any place to eat, but the best places to eat. So, your good friends at BLITZ have taken all the guesswork out and put together an awesome list of places to stuff your face with goodness. Others have tried, but we have conquered. Behold – The List:
Pull up, get out, get fed, and get on with your life.
Bayou Market Cajun Deli I www.thebayoumarket.com
This authentic Cajun kitchen in Lewisville is family owned by New Orleans native Joe Delgado. Their recipes are made from scratch and offer boiled and live crawfish, po-boy sandwiches and etouffee. We recommend the shrimp creole. For the holidays they have Cajun Fried Turkeys and Turduckens.
Big Easy New Orleans Style Sandwiches I www.bigeasyplano.com
This family run neighborhood establishment first opened its doors 19 years ago. They specialize in po-Boys, Muffelettas, Creole dishes and seafood. We urge you to try the Basin Street Chicken, as well as, the Sauteed Shrimp and Fried Green Tomato Po-Boy. The Creole Brunch on Sundays (11-3pm) features Pork Grillades and Grits, Shrimp Creole Omelets and Eggs Bienville.
City Café To Go I www.thecitycafedallas.com/toGo.htm
Gourmet food served up to go is no small task and City Café does it effortlessly. One of the best dining experiences you will ever have while running late for a meeting.
Corinne’s Catfish I www.corinnescatfish.com
As authentic New Orleans you can get without a three-day weekend trip to the bayou, Corrine’s brings the flavors of the Cajuns to you and they bring it fast. From Grilled Boudin, Garlic Crab Claws, alligator to gumbo this is the place to taste New Orleans on the fly.
Eatzi’s I www.eatzis.com
It’s an awesome place to get your food and run or find some seats and chat. Eatzi’s has salads, chicken, pizza, pastries basically everything that Whole Foods has but better. Long thought a place just for the “upper crust,” Eatzi’s is simply a great place to get some great food.
Fuel City Tacos I www.fuelcity-tacos.com
The best gas station tacos on planet Earth. Period. This place has reached cult-like status for good reason, their food rocks. And the best part is…every single damn taco is $1.40. Seriously. This is a recession proof restaurant.
Holy Ravioli I www.holyravioli.com
One of the coolest places in DFW, Holy Ravioli, offers some great Italian dishes that you can “take and bake” at home. We suggest stopping by, picking some up and making your lady friend think you can actually cook.
Offshore’s Nextdoor I www.offshoresnextdoor.com
This awesome hangout in Lake Highlands has a relaxed atmosphere with a bayou style patio. For almost four years they’ve been serving up their Texas-style Cajun cuisine, which includes a variety of appetizers, fried fish baskets, po-boys and house specialties like etouffee and jambalaya. We dig the Salmon BLT. They have a full bar and cold beer is always available.
Quesa-D-Yas I www.quesadyas.com
The best alternative to delivery or carryout pizza, Quesa-D-Ya’s has found their unique and tasty niche. They prepare their quick dishes with fresh ingredients and deliver deliciousness via D-Ya’s, tacos, burritos, bowls, or salads.
A good start for those craving Greek. The gyros and kabobs are excellent with their falafel isn’t second to none. This family owned restaurant will make you feel like you’re a part of the family. We love the Gyro here!
