418 N. Bishop Ave. Dallas, TX 75208 | Oak Cliff & South Dallas | 214-942-7400

Location Description:

If consistency is your thing, you’re probably going to like Hattie’s. The Bishop Arts District Restaurant with a Southern menu has been cooking up shrimp and grits in Oak Cliff for 20 years now and not a whole lot has changed since it first opened. The dining room is white, bright and full of light, and the staff that fills the place is always polite and professional. When Hattie’s first opened, it was a big enough draw to get Park Cities diners to venture across the dinner to dine. Two decades later, the restaurant is still a Dallas favorite.
