Pre-Sale Starts Tuesday for the 10th Annual Dallas Observer Iron Fork

Iron Fork, one of the city’s biggest annual food events, marks its 10th year in April. More than 40 restaurants will show up with bites, beer, wine and cocktails, and two big-time chefs will compete in a live cooking competition.

If you haven’t been, it’s a favorite one for many. For one, it’s indoors, in Centennial Hall at Fair Park.

Before you start heading to South Dallas, you need tickets. Pre-sale for this one runs from 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, until 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 31. Just use the super-duper, random promo code: IRONFORK. 

Now for details.

General admission ($40) gets you in at 7 p.m. for unlimited food samples from all of those restaurants alongside beer, wine, cocktails and entertainment.

If you get the VIP ticket ($65) you’ll have access an hour earlier and complimentary valet parking before 6:30 p.m. Fewer people and easy parking at Fair Park? Yes, please.

We’re going to have a long list of restaurants showing up for the April event. But for now we have a preview of those who are joining us as of today (we've already seen more come to the list since we first posted last week):

Blue Mesa Grill
Bundt Cake-A-Holic
Del Sur Tacos
Great One Cookie Company
Harlowe MXM
House of Blues
Hutchins BBQ
Kuai Asian Kitchen
Meso Maya
Ojedas Restaurant
Sundown at Granada
The Rustic
Vaquero Coffee
XO Coffee and Bistro
Many more to come

I now see two restaurants on here that are in our Top 100 list, too. So don’t miss your chance to snag a ticket as soon as possible.

Iron Fork will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, at Centennial Hall at Fair Park, 1001 Washington St. (South Dallas)
