I visited Grapevine as a part of a familiarization trip with Grapevine, Texas. How I love Grapevine! In the Dallas/Fort Worth area Grapevine is one of my favorite hang outs–all the fun, none of the traffic! There is so much to do for the whole family including the foodies! Check out these must try popular spots in Grapevine!
Winewood Grill–Whether you want a quiet dinner or a fun filled view of the lively chefs at the wood fire grill in the open kitchen, Winewood boasts the freshest ingredients, refined flavor profiles, and enticing presentations making their unique versions of American classics.
The smoked gouda mac n’ cheese is a must try and popular favorite.
I enjoyed the Spinach Artichoke dips of mozzarella, Parmesan and Pecorino mixed with baby spinach and artichoke hearts, served with homemade tortilla chips and salsa roja–yum!
Tenderloin Bruschetta served on chips! From casual lunch entrees to flavor packed dinner creations the chef-driven food at Winewood is sure to please.
Mi Dia from Scratch–Mi Dia From Scratch is a past and present experience from Chef Gabriel DeLeon that blends traditional Mexico City recipes with modern Santa Fe and Tex Mex flavors.
At Mi Dia you will find the ultimate table side guacamole. I’ve never seen this kind of spread of ingredients for a table side quac. This is one of my favorite dishes to order when dining Mexican and I’ve truly never had a better one. Amazing!
Fresh guacamole for dinner and I’m perfectly happy!
Meat U Anywhere BBQ–Y’all this place is always packed! I like to think of this as an upscale “hole in the wall” (we know those are always the best) places. They even offer free valet service!
Meat U Anywhere’s first store is in Grapevine, Texas. Delectable slow smoked meats with seasoned oak & hickory wood as well as a plentiful variety of additional dishes to choose from.
The brisket and barbecue sauce is hands down my favorite. I love the food, friendly service, and casual atmosphere at Meat U Anywhere!
Tolbert’s Restaurant and Chili Bar–Tolbert’s is famous for their Bowl of Red (chili con carne), char-grilled steaks and burgers, signature salads, and tortilla soup just to name a few of their Texas and home-grown specialties.
But y’all, if you love some good old fried food, you’ve got to try the sampler platter. Chicken wings, onion rings, torpedoes (jalapeno poppers), zucchini, and….donkey tails!
Donkey what? Yep Donkey tails! Guys the foodie crowd I was with went WILD over Donkey Tails. Think an all beef hot dog stuffed with cheese, wrapped in a flour tortillas and fried. Uh huh! Head on over!
Dr. Sue’s Chocolate–You must stop at Dr. Sue’s for some chocolate before you leave Grapevine. I was surprised to learn that Dr. Sue is actually a practicing physician! Dr. Sue believes her all-natural dark chocolate offers a richly decadent, yet more healthy treat. Hey, Dr’s orders! 😉
I gotta say, I was skeptical. I’m somewhat of a chocolate snob, but I absolutely fell in love with Dr. Sue’s Chocolate. In fact, we were given a large bar to take home. I fully intended to share this with my family, but after the first bite well, I’m not ashamed to say I hid it and enjoyed the entire thing–not all at once mind you! 😉 Seriously, you’ll want to stock up!
Thanks so much for joining me for this foodie tour. You are now ready with lots of ideas for your next trip to Grapevine. Meet you there!
