There's no need to skimp on great food for a family dinner! Here's where to take the family for lunch or dinner on your next outing in Dallas.


Art Park Trinity Groves
The colorful patio is the newest addition to the Trinity Groves lineup, and this one brings a large outdoor space with art, lawn games and great cocktails. The menu is simple, but that doesn't mean it skimps on taste! The Hoffman hotdog and sweet potato fries are great for a pair of kids to share, while the Art Park Bombs (bacon-wrapped chicken bites) and a cheeseburger are a must-have for the adults in the group. ArtPark is also a great place to watch a Cowboys game this season, thanks to plenty of TVs scattered throughout. Check out our Instagram Reel for a closer look! 

The Asian smokehouse opened in July to excited crowds and we've already been several times. Loro's snacks and veggies section of the menu is great for feeding kids; order a few of the tapas-style plates to get a good variety of fresh veggies and proteins. The chicken karagge and curry brisket rice are standouts – we recommend starting there!

Thunderbird Pies
You can't go wrong with pizza! Thunderbird Pies, a Detroit-style pizzeria, has all the standard options, plus some fun ones like the Bacon Jamz '03 (smoke pork shoulder, bacon marmalade, and charred pineapple drizzle). Bonus: there's an ice cream shop built into the restaurant and with kids in tow, there's really no avoiding a visit.

Eddie's Tex Mex Cocina
The team behind E-Bar, a long-time East Dallas favorite, added Eddie's to Lower Greenville. The casual spot has a colorful patio with great views of everything along Greenville Avenue, and just steps away from some stellar dessert options: grab a popsicle at Steel City Pops, macarons at Joy Macarons or ice cream at Creamistry.

Zero Gradi
While not a complete meal, Zero Gradi is bringing a gelato option to the Dallas Arts District and we aren't mad about that! Stop by after a family day at the Dallas Museum of Art (admission is free, but reservations are required) or on your way for a ride along the McKinney Avenue Trolley.
