It's that time of year again when hungry souls, or bellies, across Dallas-Fort Worth travel near and far to dress up, take shameless food pictures for Instagram, and dine on a budget at the area's most popular hot spots.
DFW Restaurant Week kicks off today and runs through Aug. 21 (with some restaurants extending until Sept. 4). More than 130 Dallas restaurants are offering three-course prix fixe dinners for $35 or $45. Many restaurants are also offering a two-course lunch menu for $20.
Guests can treat themselves while also giving back to the community with 20 percent of proceeds going to the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope, an organization providing intervention, counseling, and educational services to meet behavioral health needs of children and families.
