Dallas Top 25 Restaurants: August 2017

It appears as though the Dallas' weather isn't the only thing heating up this summer. Foodable's Dallas Top 25 Restaurant list returns with higher than ever scores, meaning the restaurant scene in this fun city is certainly creating more of A social buzz!

Last ranking's No. 5 Cane Rosso makes an impressive climb to No. 1 this month, but we aren't surprised. Known for its wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and Italian fare, this restaurant has repeatedly been named the "Best PIzza in Dallas" by "D Magazine." 

While the gastropub, The Blind Butcher makes a drop to No. 2. and the seafood gem Montlake Cut makes its first ever debut on the list at No. 3!

But Montlake Cut isn't the only restaurant Foodable welcomes to the Dallas Top 25! Junction Craft + Kitchen, the creative concept serving Southern cuisine, lands at No. 4. 

The steakhouse created by the culinary mastermind and chef Nick Badovinus, Town Hearth lands at No. 10. The affordable and casual taco joint, Trompo Taco makes its debut at No. 13 and the Don't Tell Supper Club, known to serve sharable plates with a side of entertainment, joins the list at No. 14.

Dallas Top 25 Restaurants: June 2016

Howdy, Dallas. This month's Top 25 was certainly a rodeo, as it came with some notable jumps and shakeups. Say congratulations to The Blind Butcher for claiming the crown at No. 1 after taking a nice leap from its previous No. 7 ranking. From its cured meats, craft beer, and delicious American fare, it's no surprise to see this contender take the top at a score of 179.65. French-inspired Boulevardier followed close behind with a score of 178.34, falling to second after being first in the last Dallas Top 25.

But those aren't the only restaurants we should be clapping our hands for. Say congrats to two new brands appearing on the ranking for the first time: the upscale, bright, and creative Cedar Grove coming in at an impressive No. 4 debut, and Sprezza at No. 12, delighting guests with pizza, pasta, and other Italian favorites.  

Though there were some risers, one brand took the plunge. Knife, known for its modern spin on steakhouse fare, dropped from No. 6 to No. 20. Will it make a comeback the next round? Check out the full list below and get ready to dig in.
