Mr. Wok - Second-generation suburban Chinese BYOB with consistently good food, including wok-seared edamame.

Ali Baba Cafe - Such a terrific representative of Middle Eastern cuisine, with freshest tabbouleh and vibrant food.

S&D Oyster Co. - A touch of New Orleans in Dallas, in historic building, as timeless as the Crescent City.

Dream Cafe - Best breakfast, bar none, with a health-foodie flair, but plenty of indulgence, too.

Hattie's - New Southern that never gets old with hospitality to match.

Pappas Bros. Steakhouse - Unsurpassed for steaks, lobster bisque, with a commitment to wine through staff and cellar the equal of none.

Then we contacted Margie Hubbard who has a wonderful blog Eating in Dallas. Margie’s love of food was deep as she is a self-taught cook and wanted the blog to be about food; eating food, cooking food, shopping for food.

We asked Margie to look at different food styles and let us know about her favorite restaurants in Dallas:

Margie’s Top Ten Varied Restaurants in Dallas

Fine Dining - Bijoux has constantly offered up the best dining experiences of all the restaurants in Dallas. The service is unbelievable. At Bijoux, if you think of something you might want, someone offers it to you. The food is imaginative and perfectly executed. The dining room is elegant, yet unpretentious. Very romantic, if you are.

Burgers - Twisted Root offers homemade everything from chips, fried green beans and pickles down to the condiments. Homemade ice cream and root beer. Beef, turkey, ostrich & venison, veggie, as well as bison burgers. Try the Western burger with pepper jack cheese, bacon, jalepenos and a big fat onion ring and a shake.

Italian - Nonna offers the only version of fine Italian food in Dallas that resembles the food I ate in Italy. You might find yourself at the bar if you venture in without a reservation, since the dining room is very small. The handmade pasta is incredible. The menu changes daily, so visit often.

Mexican - Dallas is full of Mexican and Tex Mex offerings. My personal favoritie is Pepe's & Mito's in Deep Ellum. The chipotle wine sauce, unique to their restaurant, is served as an option with several of their entrees. Try it. P&M's is very affordable.

Upscale Comfort Food - The Porch is all about comfort for cash. $12.00 for a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup may sound like a lot until you eat it. It is so much better than the best I've ever had, it's hard to describe. $14.00 hamburger with a fried egg inside and foie buttered bun? A steal.

Brunch - The Grape has an super brunch menu. The atmosphere is bistro-like with a nice bar area and patio dining available year round. Try the shredded ox tail and banana pepper hash. Trust me, you'll be sorry if someone else gets it and you don't.

Tasting Menu - Lola The Restaurant has one of the most delicious tasting menus in town. Better yet, the price blows most other fine dining tastings out of the water. With a separate dining area for the ten course tasting menu, the service at for this experience is excellent. Be prepared to stay a while.

"Texas" Feel - Tillman's Roadhouse has been driven by the Texan spirit to create some of the best Texas-style comfort food you'll eat in Dallas. It ain't cheap. But, that chicken fried steak could make a grown man cry. Terrific cocktails and eclectic dining room are just a couple of reasons to visit. Don't forget the trio of fries. Better than I thought fries could be.

Pizza - Campania Pizza has a perfectly thin crust with just the right amount of toppings. Everything is fresh and simple. Their salads are big enough to share and are put together with some imagination. Another bonus... it's BYOB and affordable. So grab a bottle of vino on the way and order more than you think you'll eat. Leftovers are great.

The restaurants in Dallas we visited were no short of excelent so any of the Dallas restaurnats you like best let us know so we are sure to add them to our next Dallas restaurant experience.
