Donna Dining

A Highly Idiosyncratic Guide to Dallas Dining.

These are Donna World recommendations, based on my personal experience, or on a few occasions, my friends’ recommendations.

Cakes

Norma’s
1123 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208
214-946-4711
17721 Dallas Parkway #130, Dallas, Texas 75287
972-380-8646
The chocolate cake is to-die-for. They have pies, too.

Italian

Jimmy’s Food Store
4901 Bryan Street at Fitzhugh, Dallas TX, 75206
214-823-6180
Italian subs, meatballs, sausage, cannolis, and their prosecco selection. Makes me happy every time I shop there.

Tacos

Fuel City
801 South Riverfront Boulevard, Dallas, TX 75207
214- 426-0011
My favorite is the barbacoa with onions, cilantro, and limes. While waiting for your tacos, you can get gas, buy beer, sometimes listen to mariachi music, linger by a fountain, wash your car, and check out some longhorn steers.
