Eat At a Black-Owned Restaurant
In our humble opinion, one of the best ways to celebrate any culture is through food. Whether you are comfortable dining in or taking out, Dallas has a ton of Black-owned restaurants serving mouth-watering meals to help you celebrate all month (and all year) long. If you have a sweet tooth, stop by Kessler Baking Studio in Bishops Arts for a cinnamon roll or Val's Cheesecakes in Lower Greenville for a slice of cheesecake.
For those who appreciate good barbecue, Smokey John's Bar-B-Que in the Medical District has been serving up hickory-smoked brisket since the 1970s, while Off the Bone Barbeque in The Cedars is more of a newcomer known for baby back ribs. In addition to barbecue, Sweet Georgia Brown in South Dallas also serves meatloaf, fried chicken and turkey wings. And for those craving seafood gumbo, lobster boxes and all things Cajun-style seafood, check out Aunt Irene's Kitchen in Fair Park.
