Dallas: Oddfellows

In the midst of the usual emails
that people send me
asking for advice 
on European hotspots
such as London, Paris & Florence...
I've been receiving a few 
for a place that I know just as well:

Dallas, Texas.

I'm a born & bred Texan, mes amis.

I get to go back a handful of times
each year in between semesters.

I was there over the weekend 
for a quick work trip...
and got to add a new place 
to my "go" list for the Big D.

Don't miss a breakfast/brunch
at Oddfellows the next time
life brings you through the Big D.

It would be so sad.

In fact, don't skip out on the Bishop Arts area in general.

It's got so many amazing places tucked in it.

And with how popular it is becoming, 
you may feel like the odd man out 
if you did.

{Sorry, couldn't help myself.}

Obviously, we weren't planning on getting our pictures taken when we rolled out of bed. Oh well. In living color.

a few other "musts" for your required visit:

Start with an order of the Beignets,
don't ask questions.

Just trust me.

I personally will recommend the Huevos Rancheros
for many reasons, but mainly because
that bottom layer of corn tortilla is a crispy wonderland.

Go ahead and follow your instinct with the gingerbread pancake-
though skip the red velvet, it's a disappointment.

Lattes are great there.
Fresh squeezed orange juice is a treat.

Oh my, 
I really think 
you're going to love it there.

Go getcha some:

316 West 7th Street
Dallas, Texas 75208

Local Tip: Get there before 9 on the weekend
or be prepared to WAIT (like 30-45min) for a table.

  1. I'm from Texas as well, although I don't get to visit nearly as often as I would like! Perhaps I'll put Dallas at the top of my "To Visit" list next time I head South.

    Suppose Anything Goes

  2. I will never question you. Give me all of the yummy foods!!!

  3. I love me a fellow Texas girl :) I'm from Houston, but make my way over to Austin/New Braunfels and even San Antonio more than Dallas, but I think I'm going to have to take a detour just for some of those gingerbread pancakes!

  4. I agree on the RedVelvet...
    The fried green tomato sandwich was pretty swell.

  5. Adding it to my list next time I visit.!

  6. Fried chicken and waffle is the best thing on the menu. I'll take you next time you're here so you can try it )

  7. Ok this looks amazing! I need to try it out!!

  8. Yum. I must try this next time I'm in Dallas!

  9. All my Dallas friends love Oddfellows! Must try it next time.
