What are The foodbitch 100? Well I’m glad you asked, m’lady. Or sir.

They’re my favorite things to eat in Dallas, narrowed down, of course, to only a hundred. This venture was very much inspired by my girl Oh Hey Dallas’ list of her Top 100 Things to Consume in Dallas. I’ve felt compelled for quite some time now to give everyone my top 100, too. Some of these second her list; that only means they’re doubly recommended.

There are so very many delicious things to eat in Dallas. But if I had just 100 days to live, here’s what I’d eat, assuming of course that I could only eat one thing per day. Perhaps I have a rare disease that only allows me one meal per day until I die in exactly a hundred days. Or maybe the backstory doesn’t matter. Consider this a checklist of awesome Dallas eats. And consider it a challenge, folks.

Bonus: I’ve ‘grammed a hell of a lot of food in this town. Scary lots. So there are links below to some of my instagram photos of these bites. Enjoy the food porn with my compliments.

Another bonus: I’ve included some links to my friends at, so you can make a reservation right from this here page. The OpenTable iPhone app in particular is really, really great for making reservations. I’m a bit addicted to it, actually. I’ve also included some Zomato links for you if the spot isn’t a reservation-type place.

  1. While I have to give you mad props for including Monkey King and Glazed Donut on your list, it looks like you left off places Denton County. There’s plenty of *very* noteworthy places to dine and/or drink in Denton County – the kind that are so worth the trip and bringing your friends along! Places like Barley & Board, Earl’s 377, LSA Burger Co. and Paschall Bar are phenomenal establishments in the area.

    At the very least, something worth looking into firsthand…!

    1. AGREED! But this is very much a Dallas list Narciso! I need to do a Denton food staycation one of these days! And you know when I do I’ll be calling YOU!

  2. I likes and agreed with many places and items in your list and would like to recommend MoMo Italian Kitchen – every thing is great there
    some of my favorites are : Handmade Spinach Gnocchi, Mushroom Risotto, Panna Cotta ,etc……
    8989 Forest Lane,
    Suite 130
    Dallas TX 75243
    Tel. (972) 234-6800

  3. Holy hell, this is an awesome list! Any plans to update for 2017/2018? :-) I imagine a lot of eating – ahem, research, needs to go into that though…

    1. Hi! Short answer: yes! Long answer: get in line, blog post! I’m so behind because blogging is hard and all my deadlines keep getting in my way. True fact. I’ll get there soon though. Thank you for reading!
