Parents in town for a week...

jmarx | Aug 15, 201311:21 AM

Ok, troops... So, another not-so-straightforward question...

My parents are coming to visit me in Dallas. They've never been here. They LOVE to eat (just not the way I love to eat). They're in their 70's, very old-fashioned when it comes to food. My mom loves a great eggplant parm and spaghetti dish and my dad, well, wherever he gets a big dish for a good "deal"! They don't care about fancy atmosphere (to my mom, a crowd means it's a good restaurant) and wouldn't know what molecular gastronomy is. They certainly won't touch sweetbreads or anything crazy but they also like authentic...

Having said all that, where are some good, down to earth, basic great food places?? I am definitely taking them to Pecan for lunch and was thinking maybe Smoke one night and La Banqueta. Maybe El Fenix.

I know- another foodie but not so foodie question... :)

PS- my husband was sick the night of his test so we didn't end up using our resies at SP or Abacus... We'll try again soon...
