I've noticed there's not a lot of talk about places down this way, aside from the Bishop arts district. Anyone know of anything?

    I like Baby Back Shak for BBQ (1800 S Akard St) and South Dallas Cafe (3126 Grand Ave) for soul food.

      Elaine's. Jamaican food located on the SW corner MLK and 75. The goat curry was one of my favorite dishes I tried this year. (skechy area)

      I had the goat curry last night and it was not as good as the other previous tries. A little on the mushy side and a bit over salted, but still a great dish.

          Baby Back Rib Shak!!!

          Best Baked Beans in town. The ribs are to die for and the boudain - yum! The bbq sauce is Carolina style - tangy and yummy! I believe it's BYOB, so load up on your favorite beer before you go in.

          Just make sure you block off two hours for a nap once you're done.
