Sometimes called the grownup, hip equivalent of a food court, the American food hall phenomenon has exploded on the scene in Dallas. With small, usually counter-service restaurants mingled with creative bars, dessert shops, and one-of-a-kind food stalls, food halls are bustling with foodies young and young at heart. While some halls are huge, housing dozens of eateries and bars, some are a little more intimate, but all encourage camaraderie between the guests who clearly enjoy the unique and tasty food and drink in the modern social atmosphere. Let’s look at food halls in Dallas and what you need to know about each one to guarantee a delicious, good time when you visit.

Legacy Food Hall

7800 Windrose Ave., Plano, TX 75024
(972) 846-4255

Just north of Dallas proper is the first of its type to take hold in the area, Legacy Food Hall. This three-story food hall boasts 19 food vendors and 6 bar areas around the perimeter of the hall. One side fronts the busy Legacy West neighborhood, filled with constant activity, shopping, and other restaurants. But inside, guests love to lounge on the patios or inside on the cozy couch seating when not noshing on lobster rolls from Dock Local, crepes from Whisk & Egg, or Son of a Butcher’s burgers and fries. Don’t miss grabbing a boozy milkshake at Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream Co. before the night is over for a cool, spiked treat. This cashless venue also opens to the Box Garden area where live music is scheduled regularly, ensuring Legacy’s continuing popularity with locals.

Located in the Medical District of Dallas, this new entrant to the food hall scene blends into its historic surroundings in a revitalized 8,400 sq ft building with the attached Crooked Tree Bar beer garden. Long the stomping grounds for the medical, Oak Lawn, and Maple Avenue communities, all Dallasites will love visiting the rejuvenated Maple St’s new food mecca. The chef-driven cuisine at Maple St promises to bring fresh dining concepts to this smaller food hall that focuses its smaller venue and food selection on popular local tastes and flavors. With three hand-picked food stalls to choose from, specialties like the barbacoa tacos from La Calle and Lala Verde Cafe’s vegan queso pair perfectly with a fresh squeezed tropical fruit juice from former Dallas Farmer’s Market staple MaiEats. But many just stop by for a cold beverage in the beer garden at one of the favorite food halls in Dallas.
