The combination of tacos, nachos and boudin might seem a little odd, but if you’re driving down Martin Luther King Boulevard near Fair Park, that’s exactly what you’re going to find at 3D Cantina & Daiquiri. And honestly, it's damn good.
First, let’s talk about the name. The 3D stands for doughnuts, deli and daiquiris, but owner Eric Byrd had to make an adjustment. He heard from his customers that the restaurant needed more options, like burgers. And as of now, there are no doughnuts. Instead, you'll find tacos and nachos.
Boudin is also a favorite for Byrd, who’s an East Texas native. Not only is he offering boudin links sourced from Houston, he has boudin balls from New Orleans, too. And the seafood boudin ball will make you feel like you’re sitting on a balcony on Bourbon Street.

Then, of course, there are the daiquiris, which are bringing in a lot of people who are looking to get their Louisiana fix. And rightfully so, as the daiquiri shops are spread out so far throughout DFW. The flavors 3D are offering range from pina colada to liquid marijuana, and if you can't choose one, you can always mix them.
The restaurant itself is quite large, with a relaxed environment and attentive staff. The walls are decorated with memorabilia of historic black leaders and sports heroes. And while Dallas isn’t hurting for another taco spot, it seems this one will have deeper meaning — a family-owned spot that will bring much-needed business back to the block.
