There's nothing we love more than a local taqueria or a neighborhood BBQ joint, but sometimes we just want a spot that has a menu appealing to everyone from the diner on a diet, to the carnivore in the group. Del Frisco's Grille fits that profile perfectly and is why it's a popular place for every occasion-from a business lunch to a dinner with friends or your first stop on a night of progressive dining. The Dallas location is on McKinney Ave and offers a great second-story patio and a view of the activity in Uptown. if you are on the west side of the metroplex you can enjoy Del Frisco's Grille on Sundance Square or in Southlake. This "little sister" to the Del Frisco Double Eagle Steakhouse is popping up in other states but the brand remains true to its Texas beginnings and works hard to provide quality cuisine in a casual trendy atmosphere. During the week, find "Power Lunches" and "Ladies Lunching" all in the same dining room. In the evening, this popular spot dims the lights and becomes a buzzy and energetic hub for a stop for cocktails and appetizers or dinner with friends.

Del Frisco's Grille has a wide selection of appetizers, and two of our favorites are the Cheesesteak Eggrolls and the Pimento Cheese Fritters. Start out your dinner with these along with one of their signature cocktails like the Tennessee Peach comprised of Jack Daniels, fresh peaches, honey and fresh lime juice.

Seared Asian Tuna Salad with shaved Napa cabbage, arugula, mango, chilled noodles, toasted almonds, tomato, avocado and Ginger Seasame Dressing.

There are several items on the menu for the health-conscious diner like salads, fish and light appetizers. There are even several gluten-free dishes that are noted on the menu. You can choose from small salads like Heirloom Tomato & Burrata and pair it with their Roasted Corn Bisque or go for one of the Big Greens like the Ahi Tuna Salad or a Chopped Chicken Ceasar Salad.  Throw in a Skinny Cosmo from the bar and you will satisfy your tastebuds as well as your waistline.

Of course, this is Del Frisco so you will have your pick of beefy dishes from a Prime Cheeseburger to a Steakhouse Salad to Filet Medallions Oscar. On a recent lunch visit we saw several plates of the Medallions going by our table and we all commented on how we were going to order this next time! On the dinner menu you will find Del Frisco Signature Steaks to choose from including Filet Mignon, New York Strip and Ribeye.

On the weekends, enjoy brunch instead of lunch by indulging in some classic breakfast items such as Red Velvet Belgium Waffles, Crabcake Benedict or Croque Madame. If you are feeling like something stronger than OJ or Coffee, tap into the "build your own" Bloody Mary Bar where you can sip a glass or share a carafe.

Coconut Cream Pie with white chocolate shavings

The star of the dessert menu for us is the Coconut Cream Pie. From the first day they opened and we sampled this iconic dessert, we have been drawn back many times for a forkful of the crunchy coconut, creamy custard and the crumbly crust that holds it all together. The chocolate shavings on the top make it an irresistable sweet ending to a meal at Del Frisco's Grille-whether it's lunch, dinner or an early evening of appetizers and cocktails.
