From the ninth floor, sweeping views of Arlington?s entertainment district fill the windows at Cacharel Restaurant. Cacharel?s menus list an array of steaks and seafood entrees to accompany the panorama, which includes views of Rangers Ballpark, Cowboys Stadium, and acres of trees planted between them so the buildings would stop fighting. Pale earth tones and plenty of natural light decorate the space as the staff exits the kitchen bearing swordfish piccata and center-cut pork rib chops. At the other end of the restaurant, views of serpentine roller coasters glimmer in the twilight as the staff tempts diners with homemade desserts. The Grand Ballroom portrays the same picturesque scenery through its seventh-floor windows and can be rented for weddings, meetings, and other gerunds.
When The Melting Pot originally opened in 1975 just outside Orlando, the location was cozy and quaint, but diners had only three options: swiss-cheese fondue, beef fondue, or chocolate fondue. However, as the restaurant grew in popularity, so did its menu selection and atmosphere. The restaurant first expanded four years later under the leadership of a Melting Pot waiter and enterprising college student named Mark Johnston, who teamed up with his brothers Mike and Bob to open a new outpost in Tallahassee. This location grew in reputation to pave the way for future franchise expansion. Today, the company—now owned by the trio of siblings—reigns as the premier fondue, wine, and drink restaurant, stretching across North America with more than 140 restaurants linked by underground tunnels. The restaurant's menu has also ballooned, and patrons can now expect six varieties of hot dipping cheese paired with salads, meats, and molten chocolate.
On a given night, groups of foodies gather around tables to nosh on signature four-course meals, from cheese-fondue appetizers and various salads to steaks and seafood cooked in a choice of healthy broth or oil. Birthday revelers and couples can share decadent evenings at private tables, capping off meals with chocolate desserts that have defined The Melting Pot for decades.
In 1996, the first Phil's Philly Grill introduced its signature hot sandwiches to Dallas from a single, modestly sized kitchen nestled into a bustling Metroplex. Because its founders brought decades of experience to the business, their sandwiches' of sauteed veggies and meats pleased anyone who got their hands on them. Soon, the concept steadily grew to occupy more than a half-dozen locations around Texas.
Today, sandwichsmiths at seven locations serve up everything from lena, certified rib-eye steaks?onions, peppers, cheese, and mushrooms included?to the Texas bacon barbecue burger, which understandably includes bacon, barbecue sauce, and a strange resemblance to the state of Texas. Phil's certified grill experts bring 40 hours of training to prepare chicken breasts marinated with 17-ingredients and hand chop fresh vegetables and cheeses. An array of Philly sandwiches, grilled salads, gyros plates, and wraps round out the menu. The ownership's commitment to hard work, passion, and fine meats have also spawned franchising opportunities for those looking to launch their own little bit of Phil's.

Some people could just eat tacos all day. And Tacos Y Mas helps make it possible with signature tacos alongside special breakfast tacos that incorporate scrambled eggs. The Mexican grill?s staff load their double-tortilla tacos with classics such as chorizo and eggs or one of their signature blends such as the cowboy, whose smoked jalapeno, beef sausage, and egg mixture secured the taqueria a spot on D-Magazine?s list of Best Breakfast Tacos in Dallas in 2010. While they do serve up their breakfast dishes all day, they can also fill tortillas with more traditional Mexican favorites such as shredded chicken in a chipotle sauce, grilled shrimp sprinkled with onion and cilantro, or the heart-healthy grilled vegetables in a chipotle salsa. But as their name suggests, they don?t just serve tacos?"mas" covers grande nachos, Cuban sandwiches, and trios of queso, guacamole, and salsa roja for guests who like dips but not decisions.
After more than a decade on the Fort Worth restaurant scene, husband and wife duo David and Ann Shaw founded Shaw's Patio, Bar & Grill. Within their eatery’s dark, wood booths or on the outdoor patios, guests dine on gourmet burgers, sandwiches, salads and gourmet hotdogs.These menu staples start as lean Angus beef patties and quarter-pound, all-beef franks, and they emerge from the kitchen transformed into specialties including the andouille-topped ShawSauge burger or the chili-cheese dog. Regionally inspired paninis such as Texas Grilled Cheese, a mix of warm Brie sandwiched between slabs of Texas toast, gain their stripes on the grill rather than by bartering with zebras. Shakes and malts hand-spun from Blue Bell Ice Cream pay wholesome complement to the diner fare, while a full bar that flaunts more than 40 beers and a family margarita recipe provides more grown-up refreshment. As the sun rises on Sunday mornings, a hearty brunch decks tables in chorizo and egg burritos, eggs benedict with portobello mushrooms, and fruit-laden French Toast, all paired with a parade of complimentary mimosas.
