24 hours in Dallas

posted on March 10, 2008 at 3:17 pm
It has been such a crazy past week and I am finally getting around to posting what I have been eating. I was in Dallas for a quick spell with the family. I didn’t have the big gun, so please excuse the iphone photos. The first night was dinner at Bob’s Steak & Chop House. It is a historic place with a very masculine feel and quality beef. Sides were meh (especially the massive sweet carrot they throw on the plate) and service was a bit too rushed. I wasn’t very wowed by our meal, but I can see why people continue to flock here.

The second day was much more fun to me because it was all about TACOS! We hit up Maple Avenue where all the Mexican grocery stores and taquerias are. Our first stop was for some beef fajita tacos at La Paisanita (4447 Maple Ave).

The tacos were filled with shredded beef that was seasoned very well and a healthy amount of grease on the tortillas from being warmed on the grill. Red salsa was super smoky and very spicy. An overall good taco.

La Hechizera Tortas: Dallas
Our last stop was La Hechizera Tortas (

5611 Maple Avenue) before heading to the airport. Don’t be intimidated by the exterior. The key to these places is walking in and acting like you belong.

The menu

This restaurant is known for their massive tortas (sandwiches), but the menu holds plenty of other items worth ordering. We got the tlacoyo, quesadilla de queso, sopes de chorizo and cecina de res and a couple of huaraches.

If you do make it to this taqueria, avoid the items made with masa that are cooked on the plancha. The tacos, meats, and fried items–especially the quesadillas–were stellar and worth the trip. My folks have had the tortas before and loved them even though they are gigantic–they recommend you order one for two people.
