Dallas Events & Steak House

We are travelling to Dallas July 20-24. Are there any events going on this weekend? Also, what restaurant would you recommend for a true Texas steak house? This is our first time to Texas as we got a cheap flight on Spirit Airlines. We have a rental car and our staying in Austin so any suggestions are appreciated.

For ala Carte steakhouses

Bob Steak and Chop House in Grapevine or Dallas

The Ranch at Los Colinas

Cattleman's fowntown Ft Worth

Regular steakhouses, Salt Grass, Pappa Bros, The Keg,

Never been to Texas, check out the Stockyards in downtown Ft Worth. Depending on where you are staying, Cowboy stadium might be close for a tour, Rangers stadium for a ball game, or Six Flags Over Texas, are all in Irving. Put a question in the IRVING forum for some locals and thier ideas!

Pappas Bros Steakhouse or Del Frisco's. It's pricey but they have amazing steaks and great service.

If you're looking for something easy on the pocketbook, try Texas Roadhouse.

Six Flags, Ranger Ballpark and Cowboy Stadium are all in Arlington, about a 20 minute drive south of Irving. That said, Irving is conveniently located west of Dallas, about 40 minutes further west to Fort Worth.

I'd recommend Pappa Bros over Bob's, but both are $$$$.

For a more reasonably priced steakhouse, look at Cattleman's in the Stockyards (Fort Worth). The Stockyards is a fun experience for spending an afternoon (maybe an overnight), shopping, dining, a Fri/Sat night rodeo and honky-tonk two-stepping. http://www.fortworthstockyards.org/

Love Pappas, Bob's, and Morton's for steak. Del Frisco's is probably the most iconic Dallas steakhouse--I've still never been there. Pappas Bros. would be the closest I think.

You'll miss Late Night in the Arts District by a day on the 19th.

Take a look at the listings on CultureMap Dallas for goings-on.
