Queso, a delicious dish featuring chiles and melted cheese, is a staple at every Tex-Mex restaurant in Dallas. In efforts to offer the best recipe in the city, restaurants top their quesos with everything from brisket to pickled onions.
Check out these three must-try quesos in Dallas:
Nestled off-the-beaten-path, E Bar is a cozy, brick-lined cantina that welcomes diners late into the night. It’s one of Dallas’ best Tex-Mex restaurants and is anchored by a 25-foot, wood-topped bar. The mirror-backed setting comes complete with televisions and colorful works of art. In the kitchen, chefs load the queso with ground beef, guacamole, and sour cream. It pairs well with the restaurant’s beer selections and happy hour specials.
At Meso Maya, the kitchen is led by Executive Chef Nico Sanchez. He began working at a bakery at the age of nine and later honed his skills at restaurants throughout Mexico. Today, Chef Sanchez is known for his unique presentation. Originally the Luna Tortilla Factory, the restaurant’s downtown location boasts Spanish-style-1938 architecture and was awarded for preserving the history and culture of Dallas. The menu features several customer favorites, including the queso poblano. This dish includes chihuahua and pepper jack cheeses, queso blanco, nopales, and roasted poblano peppers.
Velvet Taco is where chefs offer a new take on the traditional taco. They use ingredients from around the world and prepare meals to order. D Magazine calls Velvet Taco one of the “best restaurants in Dallas,” and there’s always a lively crowd. Try the red curry coconut queso while you wait for your tacos. It’s served with blue tortilla chips and features Thai basil and pickled onions.
