So you're planning the Ultimate Girls' Trip to Dallas one weekend and are looking for ideas for your girls' trip itinerary? You've come to the right place. Visiting one of the top 10 largest cities in the U.S. you'll likely be overwhelmed with the options of restaurants to chose from-from Barbeque to Mexican and Soul Food there's no real way to narrow them down. However, there are 4 very cute (and instagrammable) restaurants you should try next time you're in Dallas. You can thank me (and TikTok) later.
1. Kitchen & Kocktails: Brunch
Located on 1933 Elm St- Kitchen and Kocktails offers southern style cooking with a bit of a twist. Offering two full stories of seating with a club type vibe upstairs-this was the first place we hit up during the "unofficial" brunch hours on a Friday. The crowd wasn't too bad, there was a DJ playing and the service was amazing. We all had the chicken and waffles which are offered in different flavors like the Cinnamon Roll Waffle, Chocolate Chip Waffle and for all the plain janes (like me) The Original Belgian Waffle. And what's a girls trip without drinks? One Candy Cloud---where the alcohol is poured over a cloud of cotton candy, Strawberry Hennessy Hustler (not pictured), Peach D'usse Frose and the Patron Margarita which are their specialty frozen drinks (and no the bottles are not souvenirs).
2. Dahlia Bar & Bistro: Dinner
Dahlia Bar and Bistro located on 3300 Ross Ave, was quite the breath taker. Make sure to make reservations as this placed seems to fill up quick. Dress Code-cute/chic or whatever just not anything you would wear to make groceries in (especially after dark). The prices were reasonable and the food delish. The ambience was definitely there.
3. XOXO Dining Room: Dinner
For the ultimate girl's night dinner visit the XOXO Dining Room located on 3121 Ross Ave. Reservations are highly recommended. The ambience on the inside was immaculate! From the decor to the seating on the inside and once you walk into the outside courtyard it's like a Rose Garden almost. Very instagrammable if that's your MO, and very much a great place to celebrate a birthday or bachelorette party if that's your MO as well. They have a cupcake ferris wheel which looked tempting but again---perfect for a special occasion! For more footage of inside of the restaurant-check out my tiktok!

4. Drakes: Dinner
Last but not least we have Drake's located on 5007 W Lover's Lane. Drake's definitely gave a 1950s speakeasy vibe once you've crossed the threshold from outside into the supper den. You are greeted by hostesses in silk robs and disco/techno music is playing in the background. The ambience was so amazing it's so hard to describe. For dinner we had their Pepperoni Pizza with sides of their Famous Meatball and classic Mac and Cheese. Another good place to visit for a special celebration as they have a 24 layer pink cake that comes out with sparklers. That was a good way to end out girl's trip weekend!!
Dallas has so much to do, see and taste that we could only eat and drink so much. Being that it is one of the top 10 biggest cities there will always be new places to try and explore, but at least you have this list of 4 top restaurants to try for your next girl's trip to Dallas!
