The Ranch at Las Colinas
For a great steak, check out The Ranch at Las Colinas. They pretty much use local everything. They serve Kobe beef, which they source from the southern plains of Texas. Much of their seafood comes straight from the Texas Gulf, and of course, local vegetables served fresh. The atmosphere at the Ranch welcomes anyone, from farmhand to businessman, and makes them feel right at home. The restaurants motto is “be yourself and you’ll fit right in”.
Bombay Sizzlers/Bombay Chowpatty
If you’re a vegan or vegetarian looking for some variety, look no further! Bombay Sizzlers Pub and Grill is a Mumbai-style restaurant, serving up great vegan and vegetarian Indian dishes. While Bombay Sizzlers is more of a typical sit down style restaurant, the management has opened Bombay Chowpatty – more of a vendor-like, fast food stop for those who want great quality food, quickly! Both serve foods you find as street-food along the beaches of Mumbai, including panipuri, bhelpuri and pav bhaji.
Red Hot and Blue
Red Hot and Blue is the place to go in Irving if you’re craving barbeque! They specialize in hickory-smoked meats, and serve up some of the best BBQ in Texas! Specials include their award winning ribs, smoked sausage and brisket. They also have a list of gluten free options available, as well as some great southern sides, like fried okra and potato salad, for a side option or for vegetarians.
