Need Restaurants for Business Trip

jshaper May 3, 2012 06:19 PM

I am coming down to Dallas for a business trip with a co-worker. We will be saying just outside of Dallas in the Southlake / Irving area but I don't mind driving. Our spending limit for dinners is 50$ before tax and tip per person. I would like some options that will push my budget and options that will not break the bank to please my boss. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.

    Local to your Irving/Southlake area, all of the better steakhouses will exceed the $50, but JR"s in Colleyville would put you right at that amount - without drinks or salad. Still, might be worth your look as they serve a wonderful steak. Tip - most, if not all of their steaks are sauced. I don't know why they do this, because their steak is excellent stand-alone, - ask for the sauce on the side. http://www.jrsteaks.com/images/steakhouse_menu/Menu.pdf

    For regional Tex-Mex, Anamia's in Southlake, LaHacienda Ranch in Colleyville or MiDia in Grapevine. A much older, but more upscale Tex-Mex/Mex in Irving is ViaReal.

    Grapevine, neighboring Southlake, has a number of wine rooms on Main Street. Farina's Wineroom and Cafe (Italian) might be of interest for you. http://farinaswinery.homestead.com/

    Others will give you a number of options in Dallas. If you'd be interested in a drive to Fort Worth:
    Ellerbes - upscale American, some local ingredients, seasonal menu
    Tillmans Roadhouse - Texas Classy
    Lonesome Dove Western Bistro - Fine dining in the FW Stockyards, game meat options
    Reata - Downtown, named after Reata Ranch in the movie "Giant", fine dining with strong western appointments. Weather permitting, rooftop, patio dining.
