Diners, Drive-Ins, Dives, and then some...Where to eat in DFW!

My Husband, Joel, and I are making our way around the Metroplex this Summer, trying out the restaurants we've seen in Dallas and Fort Worth on Guy Fieri's Diner's, Drive-in's, and Dives show on the Food Network.  We have been enormously impressed with these places, not all of which we would have given the time of day looking at them from the street.  As a Realtor, we eat out from necessity as I work late, or as entertainment - finding unique places to try and enjoying the drives to get there.  My favorites are the non-chain restaurants.  I like new experiences.  Hopefully, there is at least one restaurant on the list below that is new to you, too, and I hope I have inspired you to get out off the beaten path and try new things:

As seen on Triple-D:

Twisted Root Burger Company - as, the owners say, 'If you haven't tried Twisted Root, then you're dumb."
3 locations now - and may I beg the owners to PLEASE come to Prosper!!
2615 Commerce St., Dallas
730 E. Campbell #330, Richardson (walking distance of the Dart Rail Line)
101 S. Oak St., Roanoke

Fred's Texas Cafe
915 Currie St., Fort Worth

Jamaica Gates
1020 W. Arkansas Lane, Arlington

Chef Point Cafe
5901 Watauga Rd., Watauga

1839 N. Henderson, Dallas

4714 Maple Avenue, Dallas

I'm going to add two more that I think are also not to be missed:

Tim Love's Love Shack Burger in The Fort Worth Stockyards
(Cash only)
110 E. Exchange Avenue, Fort Worth

Cowboy Chow (Sister restaurant to Twisted Root)
2801 Commerce St., Dallas

Now, get on Mapquest and call your significant other for a great night out!  Go during the week, when the crowds may be less (don't count on it).  If you know of other restaurants (no chains, please) that should be added, just continue the blog string and let's have fun! 

Have a blessed day, fellow Foodies!
