Places to dine with the kids

These restaurants are delightful places to take the whole family to go out to eat. They each have their own specialty and can fill just about any craving.

Mariano's Hacienda Ranch

Take the family out for Tex-Mex cuisine at Mariano’s. This spot was founded by Mariano Martinez, who created the frozen margarita machine. Mix a good margarita with family-friendly dining and everyone is satisfied.

Medieval Times

This family dinner show features live medieval-style games, horsemanship, sword fighting, jousting and a four course, medieval-style meal that’s meant to be eaten with your hands – no utensils needed!

The Lot

Known for its local flavor and commitment to home-grown produce, The Lot is a perfect for any trip to East Dallas. Bring the whole family (four-legged friend as well!) to enjoy the spacious patio and weekly trivia nights.

Truck Yard

Bring the kids (and pups!) for a unique outdoor dining experience. It’s got a treehouse and trailer bar, live music, as well as daily food trucks that rotate weekly.

Klyde Warren Park

Plan a day out at Klyde Warren Park, with a lunch break stop at the food trucks. A number of food trucks line the streets every day serving options like pizza, barbecue, Asian and ice cream.

Relish

Relish sits on the Northeast porch of Klyde Warren Park. This walk-up window serves gourmet burgers and hot dogs, topped with their signature relish. Don’t forget to add a side of fries and frozen custard!

Twisted Root Burger Company

This Dallas-based restaurant started its roots in Deep Ellum and now has various locations in Texas. If you’re in the mood for burgers, Twisted Root is the place to go for a casual dinner with the family. Everything is made fresh daily and locally sourced with creative burger options, milkshakes and more.

Cane Rosso

Make it a pizza night at Cane Rosso. These Neapolitan-style wood fired pizzas are made with the freshest ingredients with dozens of toppings to choose from and made just the right size to share amongst the table.

Crossroads Diner

Crossroads is where “homestyle goodness meets traditional diner.” The diner is only open for breakfast and lunch, serving classics like buttermilk pancakes, French toast, meatloaf and mac and cheese.
