DFW Restaurant Week is Here, Preview Weekend Starts Today


DFW Restaurant Week 2020 officially kicks off the week of Aug. 31–Sept 6, with most restaurants extending participation for additional weeks, through Sept. 27. Select restaurants will also offer a head start on dining with Preview Weekend, Aug. 28-30. 

This year’s campaign features dine-in and new take-out options for three- course prix fixe dinners for either $39 or $49, and two-course lunches for just $19. Diners can get a free additional course with a FedEx Office | DFW Restaurant Week Fourth Course Certificate. For each meal purchased during the campaign, 10 percent will be donated to NTFB (greater Dallas area) or Lena Pope (Tarrant County). Restaurants will adhere to the current safety guidelines.

Although NTFB and Lena Pope have been hit with unprecedented demand and financial impacts during this challenging time, the longtime DFW Restaurant Week charity beneficiaries are giving back by taking a smaller donation — 10 percent vs. previous 20 percent — in order to better help participating restaurants that have loyally supported their missions over the years. Diners will be encouraged to make additional donations to these beloved charities if they are able to do so.

“DFW Restaurant Week is our largest annual fundraiser, thanks in large part to the restaurants who faithfully participate each year. Now, we are calling on the community to in turn also support these important local businesses,” said NTFB President & CEO Trisha Cunningham. “This year, diners are doubling the good by backing their favorite restaurants along with our mission at a time when we need it most. Every dollar donated to NTFB from your meal provides another three meals for hungry North Texans.”

Added Lena Pope CEO Ashley Elgin, Ph.D., “Dine out or take out during DFW Restaurant Week – either way, it’s a delicious way to give back. Every meal supports local business and our programs for children and families here in Tarrant County!”


  • FedEx Office | DFW Restaurant Week Fourth Course — Diners can enjoy a free DFW Restaurant Week Fourth Course again this year, thanks to FedEx Office.  Starting Aug. 4, spend $10 at any DFW FedEx Office location and receive a certificate for an additional dinner course at participating restaurants!
  • DFW Restaurant Week Cocktails sponsored by Garrison Brothers Distillery – Start you meal with a DFW Restaurant Week signature cocktail crafted with Garrison Brothers Bourbon for a special value at participating restaurants.
