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.

Son of a Butcher

Taking over an iconic spot along Greenville Avenue, Son of a Butcher makes feeding picky eaters a breeze thanks to its retro slider concept. Go with The Sleeve, a butcher's dozen (read: 13) with up to four flavors from the slider menu. Grab a table outside to see the crowds go by and treat your crew to an old school shake after the sliders disappear.

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!

Palmer's Hot Chicken

Don't let the name scare you - the chicken doesn't have to be hot! There are four levels of hot to choose from, so you can go with something mild for the little ones and leave the Nashville heat for the adults.

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.

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.

La Ventana

Easy on the wallet but big on flavors - what else do you need when feeding the kids? Choose from tacos, bowls, quesadillas and more, and don't skip the churros. And with three Dallas locations to choose from, it's easy to make your way there!
