  • The Nodding Donkey Kitchen & Sports Saloon
    When the garage-style glass doors at The Nodding Donkey's Uptown location roll up into the ceiling, the aroma of American food spills out onto the street and a secluded patio. It's the smell of crispy onions and blue-cheese crumbles combined with a bison burger; the scent of brisket, sweet pickled jalapeños, pickled red onions, goat cheese, and barbecue sauce heating up on a Texican pizza. In the evenings, customers catch whiffs of simple gourmet plates such as beef tenderloin, Scottish salmon, shrimp fettuccine, and braised chicken with mushroom ravioli. As flat-screen TVs beckon the eyes, servers plunk glasses down and pop open bottles to offer more than 30 beers and 16 wines by the glass. They also lead special events such as wine, beer, and whiskey tastings. Those looking for a more family-oriented dining experience can eat at The Nodding Donkey's second location, situated near SMU. Playing host to a diverse brunch spread every weekend–from chicken and waffles to poached eggs and prosciutto served on an english crumpet–the SMU locale also caters to children with a kids menu of chicken strips, pizza, and fruit.

  • Campisi's Egyptian Restaurant
    Carlo “Papa” Campisi and wife Antonia departed from their native Sicily in 1904 with sights set on New Orleans. But not long after docking, a telegram from a cousin lured them to Dallas, where a grocery store sat vacant with a price tag of $800. Papa, Antonia, and their brood of six worked the store until 1946, when the Campisi patriarch bought a nearby bar with a kitchen in the back. At the behest of a visitor from New York, the entire family collaborated to introduce Texas to the Italian specialty that had taken the Big Apple by storm: pizza. Today, many decades and new locations later, the legacy of that flagship restaurant endures. The menu still includes specialty pizzas, such as the chicken spinach alfredo and the All the Way pie (dotted with sausage, salami, mushrooms, peppers, and onions). The signature pizzas even led Dallas Observer's to name Campisi the city's best Italian restaurant in 2011. But according to D Magazine, pizza isn’t Campisi’s only legacy—rumor has it that Jack Ruby and other mobsters convened at the eatery for half a century.

  • Greenville
    Touting four eateries including a brand-new Denton location—the Cedar Springs location crowned as one of Dallas's best pizza spots by CitySearch Voters in 2010—Zini's Pizzeria entrances taste buds with colossal specialty pies and pastas doused with house-made sauces. More than 100 coins of pepperoni and a pound of mozzarella embellish the popular 100 Pounder pizza, a pie used to motivate T-rexes to increase their highest bench-pressing weight. A garden's worth of fresh spinach, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and roasted corn set down roots in the Farmers Market pie. A recipe kept close to the vest or encrypted on wooden spoons guides chefs as they concoct a secret sauce destined for the crispy crust of their famous Garlic Cheezi Bread.
