We love our fried chicken, and have been seeking out the very best Dallas has to offer. We scoured the streets and found some with an ethnic twist, others are straight forward crispy fried and juicy.
We had to eliminate a few that didn’t qualify as traditional, such as Bon Mua’s fried Cornish hen, which is still worth making the drive to Carrollton. In making our list we were shocked at how many plates of fried chicken we had sampled over the past months. Col Sanders would have said he was too drunk to taste that chicken after just a few of these places.
Join Stampede 66 at Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen & Watters Creek Convention Center for an intimate evening with Chef Stephan Pyles and Executive Chef Stuart Race with delicious cuisine and a sampling of refreshing rosés. On Wednesday, June 19 at 6:30 kick off the summer season with Chefs Pyles and Race as they will present a five-course dinner expertly paired to the tasting notes of each selected rosé.

We have written about the history of chili, and Dallas is definitely a large part of that. The original Tolbert’s downtown served some of the best chili that could be found on the planet. Also the original Chilis’, the chain that can be found just about anywhere, opened over 40 years ago by Larry Lavine at the now-defunct Greenville Avenue and Meadow location served fantastic chili back in the day, with a recipe inspired by the first chili cook-off in Terlingua.
As we do each year, we bring you our favorite bowls of chili in the DFW area. Please note there is not a bean to be found on this list. If you do njoy beans with your chili, we invite you to check out another article we wrote some time ago on the subject. Continue reading
After nearly six years in Uptown Dallas, Stephan Pyles Concepts announced it has decided to close Stampede 66 by Stephan Pyles and will be relocating Stephan’s ‘love letter to Texas’ to the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen & Watters Creek Convention Center this January 2019.
Stephan Pyles said, “While we love Uptown and Downtown Dallas, this particular part of Uptown is saturated, surrounded by vacant real estate, constant construction lane closures and neighboring high rise construction that has made it harder and harder for doing business. This allows us the unique opportunity with Benchmark Global Hospitality to have some of our concepts at both ends of the DFW Metroplex and bring Stampede 66 in various forms to more people.” Continue reading

There is simply nothing more elegant and festive as tableside service. We are talking the classic Caesar Salad tossed in full view of the guest, at their table and with great finesse. It is the definitive dinner and a show that has somewhat fallen from a great many menus across the country. Beyond adding a bit of flair, this and many other tableside presentations also demonstrates a commitment to freshness. What could be more fresh and flavorful than a dessert or salad finished off right before the diners’ eyes? This said, there are still many restaurants across the country creating delicious dishes tableside, and certainly to rave reviews. Continue reading
