The past year has been quite a challenge for all of us, and as always, our moms were there to keep the family safe and functioning. At the very least, we should take them out to brunch for Mother’s Day, like we would any other year.

But before you dive into brunch reservations, maybe think about getting Mom what she really wants and needs: a drink. We found 10 Dallas restaurants offering drink deals, special cocktails or free mimosas for Mom on her special day.

After that, you'll find a list of 40 restaurants in and around Dallas that are offering everything from dine-in brunch buffets to ready-to-heat meal kits that are bound to make your mother smile.
