Dallas - cheap dinner downtown
A friend wants to meet up and she just moved downtown. I told her I would drive down, but I really have no clue what is down there anymore. Looking for something cheap and decent.
I don't know downtown, but if you go to yelp and pull up say.... Adolphus. Look under the map inset and you'll see "browse nearby". Select restaurants and a multi-screen list will appear. Yeah, you (or she) will have to trudge through the listings to see if anything appeals to you, but it's a start.
"Cheap" and "downtown" are pretty elastic terms. For burgers/bar food I'd say Lee Harvey's, Twisted Root, and Adair's. RJ's, in the West End, has pretty good Mexican. I haven't been to Daddy Jacks in Deep Ellum for quite a while, but last time I went it was decent. Monica's is still around, which says she's doing something right. I've heard good things about Off the Bone BBQ. If you consider uptown part of downtown, there's good pizza at Grimaldi's or Campagnia; if not, you're stuck with Campisi's.
