As for High Fives, Eater said: “Cocktails like the Selena (a jalapeno-infused mix of tequila, grapefruit juice, and bitters) are top notch, and pair perfectly with budget-friendly eats like a grilled cheese sandwich served with tomato-basil dip ($8) or a vegan BLT made with tempeh ‘bacon.'”
Tei Tei Robata Bar, located on Henderson Avenue, has been named one of the top 5 Japanese restaurants in Dallas! Tei Tei Robata Bar was founded by Teiichi Sakurai, a James Beard nominee. His first restaurant was Teppo on Lower Greenville Avenue (May 1995). Sakurai specialized in Yakitori charcoal grilled chicken skewers (a sensation at that time). In May of 1998, Sakurai decided to open Tei Tei. Katsutoshi Sakamoto, the current chef and owner, was brought on as executive chef.
The restaurant has specialized in grilled seafood and vegetables and was the first to bring “Washu beef on the rock” to Dallas from Japan. You are certain to find some of the freshest seafood in the city at this Henderson Avenue gem.
When you are presented with a menu that’s overwhelmingly good – how does one choose? This is a recurring dilemma at Fireside Pies on Henderson Avenue – one of our favorite spots for pizza and cocktails.
For starters, though you can’t really go wrong, the Molten Meatballs and Bruschetta (though a close tie with the Spinach and Artichoke Dip) are at the top of our list. Now, we get to salads — the Fireside Cheese is exactly what it sounds like – a salad blended with four cheeses. It’s a must.
And, then we get to pizza pies. The Triple is a go-to with pepperoni, mozzarella, basil, and truffle oil. The Hot ‘N Crumbled is made with homemade spicy Italian sausage, garlic ricotta, and diced tomatoes. For a vegetarian pie, go for the Quattro Funghi.
If you are looking for a place to try some of the freshest flavors of spring in Dallas, don’t look further than Gemma restaurant on Henderson Avenue.

Updated: March 2019: The Drunken Clam Pop-Up is now closed! But, be sure to check out The Whippersnapper — newly updated!
The Drunken Clam pop-up, the famous haunt from The Family Guy, will be open until February 2nd from 6pm to 2am Wednesdays through Saturdays at The Whippersnapper off of Henderson Avenue. You’ll find special drinks like Peter’s Pawtucket Patriot Ale, Stewie’s Cool Hwhip, Brian’s Martini, and Ooooh Yeah Shots.
“Customers will find Family Guy references in every nook and cranny, including the restrooms and nestled among the bottles behind the bar. Additional surprises are in-store to keep the pop-up fresh throughout its month-long run, so frequent visits could yield entirely different experiences. None of which will rely on good, old-fashioned values.”

Fort Worth’s gourmet taco restaurant, Taco Heads, announces their second location at 1921 N. Henderson Ave. in Dallas. The restaurant is set to open early June, but Dallas residents will be able to preview Taco Heads’ menu through their food truck that will be out front starting May 17 while interior construction is completed.
“We love the Henderson location – the street, the neighborhood and the close-knit community vibe,” said Sarah Castillo, Taco Heads’ founder and owner. “We’ve been greeted by so many of the restaurants with open arms which makes this small town girl feel right at home.”
Castillo attributes the restaurant’s success to the employees, quality of food, and the multigenerational recipes – the brisket found in their tacos take 12 hours to prepare, they butcher their own meats, the eggs are real, cheese is hand-grated, and tortillas are fresh from a local family-owned distributor. “We’re passionate about serving the community scratch-made, real food,” said Castillo. “We do everything in-house, and these recipes are passed down from my grandmother, mother and my aunts.”
Beginning May 17, the Taco Heads Dallas food truck will be parked outside Thursday through Saturday at the location serving late night patrons both breakfast and traditional tacos – including bacon, chorizo, papas, carnitas, chicken, brisket, and veggie – from 11PM to 2AM. Once the restaurant is open, the truck will continue to operate early morning and late night (7AM-11AM. and11PM-2AM).
Patrons who dine in will experience a dog-friendly patio, an open-air dining room, and a separate private dining area in the back where they can enjoy the “best margaritas in Texas.” Regular restaurant hours will be 11AM-11PM. The Dallas location’s opening is expected for early June, with a grand opening party in the works.
