"Cold beer or hot soup" Dallas Restaurant Tip by CliffClaven

Dallas Restaurants: 252 reviews and 234 photos


This is America. And the one thing you can say about America is that you are unlikely ever to go hungry. There are restaurants, diners, eateries everywhere. On the other hand, you could well freeze to death. One summer, when old Cliffie was in Dallas, the mercury was bubbling at around 108 fahrenheit (42 celsius). But entering any restaurant was like walking into the cold storage room back at his local supermarket. Temperatures plunged, teeth chattered and the craving for a nice cold Bud suddenly changed to a desperate desire for a bowl of warming soup. Enjoy your meal - but never underestimate the power of Texan air-conditioning. You could be warmer in an igloo.
