Living Like a Local While Traveling in Dallas

Everyone knows that one of the greatest benefits of a traveling medical professional is having the opportunity to explore new cities. We’re kicking February off by highlighting key places to visit in cities all across the country… And we’ve decided to start in the Lone Star State!

Dallas is home to many great places to eat, have a good drink, and there are countless sights to see. Here are just some (highly encouraged) recommendations from a Dallas resident of her favorite places while in the city.

Pecan Lodge is recommended as the best Texas BBQ in Dallas, and it was featured on Diners Drive-in and Dives. They only stay open until the food runs out for the day and they always have a line that forms 30 minutes before they open at 11am, but it is WORTH IT! Pecan Lodge got its start in a farmers market and became so popular they relocated to an area called “Deep Ellum” which is an awesome area to check out. It’s more up and coming, but Deep Ellum is known for their art. Tons of cool graffiti work on walls, lots of great restaurants, and cool boutiques to check out. Deep Ellum Brewery is also located nearby for a drink after eating.

Trinity Groves is full of things to do for everyone. It has a phenomenal view of downtown Dallas and there are a handful of awesome restaurants to choose from. One of our travelers recommends Sushi Bayashi, LUCK, and the Cake Bar. LUCK is popularly known for promoting the local craft beer industry by serving everything fresh on tap and only beers brewed within a 75-mile radius. During your visit to Trinity Groves, take a walk across the Continental Avenue Bridge and admire the views of Downtown Dallas.

Mi Cocina is located in the uptown of Dallas. Uptown is where you go to see and be seen. Be ready to see some of the fanciest cars you’ve ever seen. Mi Cocina is very well known for their Mambo Taxis’. It is their house sangria swirled with their house margarita. The drinks are strong and delicious. Texas is very well known for their chips and queso (it’s at EVERY restaurant) and Mi Cocina’s is really good. After a bite to eat, head down to McKinney Avenue to check out their vibrant bars.
