Del Frisco's

5251 Spring Valley Road Dallas, TX 75254 | North Dallas | 972-490-9000

Location Description:

Del Frisco's is among the original red meat conquistadors; brazen in its lusty, lofty wine arsenal and wicked in its richly marbled collage of aged prime beef cuts. Searing broiler heat creates the crust. Marbled fat pockets furnish the juicy richness. A menu warning states this: "Not responsible for well-done steaks." Of course, ordering prime beef well-done is a felony in most states. But we ride the edge, and we ordered a filet medium well. It still dripped with juicy richness, and no one was frog-marched from the dining room. Which seems dated, in its dark mahogany cocoon sparkled with polished brass chandeliers. Walls are covered with photo collages featuring visiting notables. But it isn't all steak and dusky lumber. Baked potatoes are fluffy, shrimp are abusively huge, lobster tails are torturously expensive, and the seafood is creatively presented--halibut in miso sauce, for instance. Turtle soup, too. Who still serves turtle pottage? Competitive edge, that. Important because the prime beef segment continues to crowd up, with most players doing it well. Take your pick.
