I'll be in Dallas early in November for a conference, specifically in Richardson. What are some notable places in the area? Closer to Richardson would be good, but if there's a really good place that's a ways off I'm willing to face a long drive. Good food obviously has priority, but if there's a place with an awesome atmosphere and only so/so food (or worse*) I'd be up for that too.
I'd like to have some good BBQ once, just to see how you guys do Q down there, but other than that I've got no preferences for styles of food.
* example: Casa Bonita in Denver is someplace everybody should go to once just to see the spectacle, but the food was forgettable.
