Summer in Texas means that sometimes it’s just too dang hot to cook.
Our buy-here pay-here Barrett Motors dealership service team in Garland were talking about just that, which led to sharing their favorite local restaurants.
Knowing our customers probably feel the same way about being in a hot kitchen or standing behind the backyard grill on a 100-plus degree day, we thought we’d share our list of favorite restaurants in Garland.
This street taco favorite is at 2218 S. Jupiter Road. Their gourmet tacos are worth the trip. We’ve tried pollo, fajita, barbacoa and carnitas, and they are all terrific. In fact, we think they should rename the place Tranky’s Taco Heaven. Even the borracho beans are fantastic. The only thing better is the pricing—very inexpensive. No wonder it’s packed at lunch and dinner.
Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery
Brisket nachos, ribs, fried okra and the best mac and cheese in town—we can’t say enough about this place. Plus, you can get four pours of home-brewed brewskies for just $15. We especially like the Texas Shake, which is a creamy, hazy IPA. Located at 509 W State St. in Garland, it’s a real find.
Babe’s Chicken Dinner House
If you live in Garland, you must know about Babe’s, right? It’s probably the most famous restaurant in town. Located at 1456 Belt Line Road, it’s busy from the moment they open until they close. Everyone at each table orders the main dish of their choice—fried chicken, fried catfish, chicken fried steak, chicken strips—then the sharable sides are spread around the table: mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, black-eyed peas and white gravy. And the desserts? We are hooked on their banana pudding with meringue. Just forget about your diet and get in the car and go. You won’t regret it. (Just don’t tell your personal trainer.)
