Cheap spots to eat in Dallas

Your guide to fine dining on a budget.

Lounge Here

Cuddle up in the corner booth at this retro East Dallas 1970s-inspired bar. Pop open a bottle of wine and share a charcuterie and cheese board to celebrate your love.


Make it a picnic night with to-go burgers and frozen custard from Relish, a walk-up burger counter tucked in a corner at Klyde Warren Park. Grab some beers and wine in the patio that has prime views of the park – perfect for date night!

Socca Mediterranean Café

Go for crepes at the Dallas Museum of Art’s latest dining option. Check out the menu at the cute walk-up counter on the spacious plaza outside the museum and take your pick from savory or sweet, topped off with your favorite beer or a glass of refreshing lemonade.


Walk hand-in-hand through the Bishop Arts District before grabbing a table at Eno’s, a local pizzeria. Share a bottle of merlot as the soft sounds of the weekly local musician serenade the room.

Jimmy's Food Store

Visit this East Dallas staple that has been around for more than 50 years and is known for their specialty sandwiches. Explore the store together for your pick of a fine bottle of wine before setting up in the cozy eating nook for a casual dinner.
