Planning Your Visit

  • Mexican Food

    Whether its real Dallas Tex Mex style—that’s a combo plate slathered in ranchero sauce—or traditional Mexican food, this city is home to some of the best in the country. Tacos are good for breakfast, lunch and dinner and there’s always room for guacamole while visiting Dallas.

    Don’t be fooled by its location on the map; a winter in Dallas can be cold and windy. And of course, for about four months of the year, it’s unbearably hot. Pack wisely; this ain’t Los Angeles.
