The Top 100 Dallas Restaurants, No. 24: Frisco’s best restaurant is the kind of place that every neighborhood should have. Set in a century-old Victorian house, The Heritage Table devotes lavish care to a comforting menu of classics. Everything here is house-made: the salty tortilla chips, the rather fabulous hummus, even the day’s special ice cream (though they have Blue Bell, too). Owner Richard Vana stops by every table, making sure guests are loving their pimento cheese dip, hand-rolled pastas and fried pies. The beer list is tiny but very well-chosen (and all Texan). Just about everyone wants to be a regular at a restaurant like The Heritage Table.
Top pick: Hanger steak, garnished with chimichurri and a splash of good olive oil, is flawlessly cooked. Alongside, a handful of potatoes get smashed and crisped up in the pan.
The downside: Being too full for dessert can be rather heartbreaking.
Fun fact: In good weather, the enormous patio beckons. It’s also a short but pedestrian-hostile walk to the FC Dallas game.
