Jim Cantore, Here's Where To Eat In Dallas While You're Covering The "Storm"

Categories: Best Of Dallas

Holy Smokes! Jim Cantore, welcome to Dallas!

Your passion for extreme weather precedes you, and your arrival has struck fear into the hearts of Dallasites everywhere. It's true! Many locals are terrified of inclement weather that doesn't involve tornadoes, and completely unaware of how to best respond to a thundersnowflake. While I'm calling bluff on this whole icepocalypse thing, I'm still pretty excited you're here. You know, just in case.

So button up that super-parka and get out there and do what you do best. And when you get hungry here are some spots where you can stop and refuel, withsome pointers for some potentially amazing footage for fun.

You're in Texas, so you're going to eat Tex-Mex. In fact, it's mandated by state law (somewhere I'm sure) that Tex-Mex be consumed within 18 minutes of arrival. Personally, I've been on a Manny's kick -- brisket tacos are a thing in Dallas and just look at the ones in the picture above -- but since you're likely already behind, here are nine to choose from.

After you spend some time in Park Cities covering rich people paying less-rich people to do their icy dirty work, head to the Trinity River where you can attempt to walk on ice that won't exist. The burgers are better than In-N-Out burger and Shake Shack combined. And they sell cheap canned beer, too.
