For the Those Who are Looking to live like a Local

There are plenty of hidden gems around Grand Prairie that are popular with the locals! Check out something a little more off the beaten path!

  1. Theo’s Bar and Grill
    This downtown staple is a favorite of City employees for lunch. Theo’s offers a sprawling menu filled with favorites (we’re talking patty melts and chicken fried steak) and some harder to find niche items (like liver and onions on Tuesdays)! Don’t forget to tell ‘em we sent ya!

  2. Asia Times Square
    With hot pot and Korean corn dogs, Asia Times Square is a culinarian’s dream! Its food court is packed with Pan-Asian vendors and it’s also home to legendary The Pearl Restaurant & Lounge which offers authentic dim sum. Watch out for festivals here, too!


  3. Zavala’s
    Maybe not considered a locals-only-spot anymore, Zavala’s has been a cult favorite for years. Now, with its place on Texas Monthly’s Best Barbeque in Texas list, you may have to wait a little longer in line. It’ll be worth it!
