What's the most popular restaurant in Dallas for Cinco de Mayo?

May 3, 2018 | You could measure a restaurant's popularity on Cinco de Mayo by checking its liquor sales, perhaps.

Best Tacos in Dallas

November 22, 2016 | The downtown Dallas location is absolutely the best place to grab a bite to eat after visiting the Perot Museum or during lunch when the food trucks are too busy at Klyde Warren Park (which they always are). In nice weather, the crushed granite patio with its wooden tables and urinals planted with grass is a funky respite from the glass and asphalt of downtown. The tacos are some of the best in Dallas. And the warm churros con cajeta (cylindrical, crispy confections filled with caramel) are a taste of Mexican heaven for only $1.75. Put simply: go here.
