Description: Since 1969, the Lovers Lane location is a true throwback to it's big brother on Harry Hines Blvd (set.1955). This neighborhood restaurant and bar is famous for mesquite grilled steaks, chops, quail, chicken and seafood all cooked on open pits in the dining room. Dunston's garden fresh salad bar is a fan favorite for generations of Dallasites. Locals and out-of-towners alike, have come to know Dunston's as an "old school" Dallas institution.

This restaurant has been in Dallas for many years and the steaks are always great. They grill them over an open fire that is right in the restaurant where you can watch. The overall ambience of the restaurant is great too.

In a city where Steak and Chop Houses are just mere miles apart, this family owned Dallas Family Restaurant is still watched over by its owner and it shows. You will walk into a family atmosphere that will result in one of your finest steak experiences ever. The next surprise? It will barely be more than a steak from a chain restaurant and Much, much better. Honestly, your tastebuds will be treated to a tantilizing experience and your pocketbook will not be hurting when you finally leave.
This restaurant is in "middle Dallas" and barely off I35 on a major artery. Even if you have to drive out of the way to find this spot, you will enjoy some incredible food.

We stopped here for dinner (just a few blocks off I35E) on our way from Denton to a show at the Winspear Opera House. It's a steakhouse with a wide range of steaks, all at very reasonable prices. Our steaks and sides were all cooked just right and very good. It's quiet so conversation isn't a challenge. An excellent choice for dinner when you're driving to downtown Dallas from the north. It's just a 10 minute drive on down to the arts district.

This place is charming in its own way and the prices are cheap--VERY old school restaurant. We enjoyed our food, although it was nothing to salivate over. Steaks were good, not great, garlic bread was wonderful as were the baked potatoes. And the brownie a la mode for dessert was incredible. If you're in the mood for something simple and fairly priced, you might just like this place. LIKE, probably not love. But sometimes that's good enough.
