Wanted: Great Locally Owned Restaurants in Dallas

toots77 | Jan 22, 2009 08:56 AM

Since moving to Dallas, my husband and I have had the hardest time finding good Mom and Pop joints - locally owned restaurants that have fantastic food that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. There are a couple we've found - JG's, Abocas, Ali Baba's, Old Monk, Bread Winners - but would love a list of many more to try out. I'm talking good food, ethnic or otherwise, around the price range of $8-12/meal for dinner, that isn't a chain restaurant. Coming from Austin, TX and Fort Collins, CO in the past, there were fantastic locally owned restaurants everywhere you looked, but now in Dallas everywhere you look is the Olive Garden - yuck! Please help.
