Boston-based Cheapflights.com is pimping a rather incomplete list of "Where to Wine and Dine in Dallas," and, uh, they're kidding, right? Because, turns out, the best barbecue in Dallas is in ... Fort Worth. Yup -- Angelo's. Which ain't bad, but it also ain't in Dallas, last I looked, which was, like, 20 years ago. And the best steakhouse in town is ... Pappas Bros. Steakhouse? (Though, come to think of it, someone 'round here thinks Pappas Bros. is pretty danged good too; guess the rest of us just slum it at Bob's.) But c'mon, Cheapflights, where's the best burger in Dallas? Austin? --Robert Wilonsky
