Where to dine festively this Fourth.
Celebrate the birth of America by dining on some dishes that are steeped in red, white, and blue tradition. Warning: The below bites could be considered the anti-swimsuit diet.
- Hotdogs. Deep Ellum’s Luscher’s Red Hots is a decidedly fancy version of the ballgame treat. The Chicago-style franks are dressed up with traditional offerings like spicy mustard and sharp cheddar cheese or the more unusual (cucumber-mint yogurt), depending on your order. 2653 Commerce Street.
- Bologna Sandwich. Talk about a #TBT meal. But this isn’t your elementary school variety sammy. Instead, Lower Greenville’s Remedy has crafted house made bologna out of Akaushi beef and Duroc pork, and finished it off with American cheese, mayo, and sweet onions on Challah bread. 2010 Greenville Avenue.
- Chicken Fried Steak. Claiming to have the “World’s Best” chicken fried steak is pretty brave—but after sampling AllGood Cafe‘s take on the dish, we get it. The thing and crispy steak comes with gravy, mashed potatoes, and a side veggie (ahem, black-eyed peas) will put you in a food coma in the best way possible. 2934 Main Street.
- SnoCones. Cool off with a classic Tiger’s Blood sno cone (*not* shaved ice) from Oak Cliff’s Aunt Stelle’s. Only open on the weekends, you should prepare for a long line, but it’s worth it. 2002 West Clarendon Drive.
