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.


ArtPark Trinity Groves
A colorful patio in Trinity Groves, ArtPark features ample 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 ArtPark Bombs (bacon-wrapped chicken bites) and a cheeseburger are a must-have for the adults in the group. ArtPark is also great for catching the big game, thanks to 30 outdoor TVs scattered throughout.


Fusing Asian and Texas cuisine, Loro's is a one-of-a-kind Asian smokehouse. The snacks and veggies section of the menu is excellent for feeding kids. The tapas-style plates are a great way to get a nice variety of fresh veggies and proteins, while the chicken karagge and curry brisket rice are absolute standouts!


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). After the pie, visit the ice cream shop and get a little something for your sweet tooth.


Eddie's Tex Mex Cocina
With a colorful patio and great views of everything along Greenville Avenue, Eddie's is an excellent Tex-Mex option for the whole family. Go with a classic combo or a customer favorite like the stuffed chicken. Just be sure to save room for dessert because Eddie's is just steps away from some stellar after-dinner options like Steel City Pops, Joy Macarons and Creamistry.


Zero Gradi
We know it's not exactly a place you can grab a complete meal, but Zero Gradi is a delicious option for creamy gelato in the Dallas Arts District. Stop by after a family day at the Dallas Museum of Art or on your way for a ride along the McKinney Avenue Trolley.



One of the pioneers in Japanese teppanyaki-style dining, Benihana offers an experience unlike any other in Dallas. From the unmistakable architecture to its famous koi pond, you'll be transported to a new world as soon as you arrive. Then be amazed as the talented chefs dazzle your eyes as they prepare your food right in front of you.


Magic Time Machine

There's one thing you need to know right now. Magic Time Machine isn't just a restaurant. It's an adventure. The dining rooms are each unique, with eclectic décor and funky themes throughout. And the best part? Every server dresses and acts as heroes and villains from your favorite movies, books and television shows. Will it be Jack Sparrow, the Joker or Moana serving you? You'll just have to show up and see.
