One of the greatest things about Dallas is the wealth of locally owned restaurants, stores and small businesses. The only bad thing about that? It's really hard to choose where to go! Yelp.com provides actual customer reviews to help you decide - and many of these reviews go into detail about what to order/not order at a restaurant, parking tips, and funny stories. You can also search local events (such as this one!), lists of top bars/salons/mechanics/you-name-it and where to find the best of anything in the city, whether you are in the mood for a margarita or craving some fried chicken.
