Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2017 issue, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.

Scenario: It's late at night and you're not entirely sober. You're also awfully hungry, and fast food just isn't gonna cut it. Hop a Lyft and hightail it to Nova, Oak Cliff's favorite late-night hang spot. It serves food until midnight (with a limited menu after 10 p.m.), and nothing's gonna fix your vodka-induced carb craving quite like one of Nova's stellar pizzas.

Our favorite: the pulled duck and cherrywood bacon pizza, slathered in sweet, tangy Memphis barbecue sauce and sprinkled liberally with smoked cheddar, buffalo mozzarella and red onions.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
