Here’s the continuation of foods that the Army, Marine, Navy, and Air Force personnel and family shouldn’t miss. In case you’ve missed it, Part 1 has some more tips.
If you find yourself in the Bishop Arts District, you will need to stop at Lockhart’s Smoke House for what is the best brisket in Dallas and maybe even Texas! You have a choice of with fat or without fat – go with the fat, you’ll love the flavor and the way the moist meat just melts in your mouth. Also available with extra bark, for those of you that love the char on your meat! You purchase the meat by the pound and it’s served in butcher paper with bread. Rustic way for you to enjoy your BBQ! The other basics are also expertly done here like the sausages, chicken, and ribs. The deviled eggs were an unexpected treat. After lunch, browse the stores and find your way to Emporium Pies, which features a few excellent homemade creations – the red velvet pie was smooth and velvety, something different but oh so good! The pecan pie is another must try here! If you order your slice of pie to go, it’s packaged in a basket that is both cute and re-useable. You can taste the freshness and the lack of preservatives in the pies.
Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant Five Sixty is located at the top of Reunion Tower. The view is amazing and it’s a great way to see the city while experiencing Asian fusion dishes which are prepared artfully. The restaurant rotates so your view is constantly changing and you will be able to look for all those landmarks which you’ve been enjoying on street-level.
For those of you looking for some late night eats, you can try McKinney Avenue. Take the streetcar, which travels along McKinney and you will find a wide range and variety of restaurants, pubs, bars, etc. There’s something for everyone in your party!
