I'm looking for the best BLTs in Dallas.

(Note: I generally prefer to nix the mayo and add avocado, so if avocado is an option, that's a plus, but not a requirement.)

I'm a big fan of the BLTA at Lee Harvey's and looking for other options.

Ok, go!

  1. My pick (not to mention what got me to like BLTs in the first place- I loathe raw tomato before theirs!) is AllGood Cafe in Deep Ellum. It's cheap and loaded with bacon. They do always ask if you want avocado but I say no. I believe they've won local awards for best blt too.

    1. The best BLT is at Smoke, although it's not on the menu. Huge thick slabs of house-made bacon and curiously good out of season tomatoes.

      1. BOLSA! They have the best BLT I ever had....Perfecly cooked bacon, homemade aioli, fresh arugula, and local tomatoes on really good house made focaccia bread. You have to check their menu, because they change it.

        1. I consider the pork belly BLT at the Commissary the best sandwich I have had in Dallas. Usually not served in the afternoon. The tomato is sous vide.

          1. Ok, so I had the BLT at Crossroads Diner (75 and Walnut Hill) and it is definitely worth mentioning. Tons of crisp, salty bacon, fresh tomatoes, and greens. I added avocado and a fried egg. It comes on the same brioche they use for their french toast. It was huge; when it arrived in front of me I declared that I was only going to eat half. Predictably, I polished off the entire thing. Fantastic.
