Very welcoming the food was amazing. The drinks are really good not watered down like most restaurants.
As always, first rate service. Dale, of course, stopped by each table to trade a fist bump. The manager (Dale's daughter?) stopped by to greet each table and made everyone feel welcome. Great venue for special family events or just a fun evening out with your spouse or significant other.
Excellent service and excellent food.
Always a pleasure dining with you all! Love Shannon! And our waitress Dana was great!! Thanks for the anniversary dessert!!
Texas always makes the experience a good one. Great food and service.
The food is excellent and well prepared, the management is very attentive checking on us a few times to be certain we were happy and well taken care of, and while our server was very friendly and knowledgeable, we felt a little rushed and the restaurant was not crowded at all so that didn’t make sense. Overall a good experience and a great place to celebrate an occasion. We were there for our anniversary and we heard well wishes from several folks there and enjoyed a dessert on the house. We will be back!
From the moment you enter the door, until the time you exit, the staff is very welcoming, attentive and they all seem to enjoy working there.
Food was superb and staff very gracious and kind.
Disappointed that it took 20 minutes to be seated after our reservation time. Lots of people standing, mostly masked. Some not. Definitely this place was crowded and maybe they removed some tables, but if they did it wasn’t obvious.
On this visit on a Saturday night, the restaurant could have been a Covid hot spot. All the servers wore masks, but the waiting area at the hostess stand was crowded, with no attempt at distancing. We saw several people come in while we were seated that had no masks. All tables were full and spaced close together as we remembered them from prior visits. All of the booths next to the bar were occupied - no spacing or screens between adjoining booths. The only concession was a short plexiglass partition between the two rows of booths.
The bar itself was full of unmasked people, elbow to elbow. The magician that they frequently have was not wearing a mask as he went from table to table, in at least one case leaning over very close to the occupants, also unmasked, as he performed his tricks.
The worst offender was the proprietor himself, Dale Wamstead, who wore no mask and made frequent rounds among the tables greeting people and even hugging a few. We also saw several people walking through the restaurant as they went to their table with no mask.
As always, the food was excellent as was the service, although the wait staff was constantly speed walking around the tables and floor. Noise level was high, about as usual.
We have no intention of dining at Texas again until there is a vaccine or until there is some enforcement action taken to rein them in. A sad, scary experience for a place we have always enjoyed going to in the past.
We had a rough day celebrating my younger brother’s birthday in memorial. We lost him last April. We picked Texas to take my parents to because of the service. It’s always above and beyond and tonight it was stellar again. The staff took very good care of my family and there’s nothing else we wanted today. The excellent food and the dessert they provided us was all the cherry on top. We go a few times/year at least and we will continue to.
It was a cool groove!!! The food was incredible and the atmosphere elegant with welcoming arms. Magician and live background musician adds to the overall experience. Love it!!
Restaurant is loud with chatter. The server was friendly...too friendly. This was a special occasion for our family, we now know al about her personal life.
Excellent service! Owners even said hello!
We always have a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Good service, great food, and a great environment. Mixed drinks are very good (not too potent and not weak). Their steaks are always great as well as their sides. My wife tried the Lobster and loved it also.
Had heard great things, and have eaten at Dale Wannstedt restaurants for decades...Texas delivered. Dale came up to us while seated at bar to welcome us. Food was exceptional...ribs and tenderloins tips. Drinks were nicely done. Leticia provided fantastic service, and we enjoyed speaking with Shannon. There's a big US flag from a WWII Navy ship on the wall by the bar that a patron donated. At 7:15 the saxophonist played the National Anthem & we all rose,, hand over heart, and sang. Was a moving moment. US-hating liberals might stay away. We'll be back and encourage other patriots to do similar.
Screw you guys............................................
Exceptional skill and service!
Birthday Celebration Extraordinary!
Out first time to go there. The service was fantastic I must say. We got there for a 6 pm Friday night reservation and it was fairly quiet but by 6:30 ish really picked up and in the middle of a pandemic I had a hard time believing the tables were 6 feet apart. That was my only complaint. Otherwise everything was great.
Love this place . We love the pledge to the flag in the evenings also❤️
Texas is one of the best steak and seafood place I have ever eaten.
I am from Los Angeles and every time I am in Dallas, I go to Texas...the food is great, the people are super friendly and the service is great. If I lived in Dallas, it would be a weekly visit......
Always excellent and family and friends love it!!!!
This restaurant is so fun! A lively place on the weekends for sure! We were there over Halloween weekend so it might have been a little livelier than normal. Great service, great food!
Great service. Great food. Great place to eat.
As always great food and great friendly service.
Great place for “ANY” occasion and the staff is always friendly and welcoming!
Very nice place. Will be back. Enjoyed the dinner and restaurant. Dale is a great host!
The staff congratulated my daughter upon arrival and made the evening memorable. Food was very good. Shrimp was not our favorite but steak & ribs were excellent. The bartender poured hubby’s beer in the glass with about 3” of foam and then took the bottle away with at least 2 ounces of beer still in the bottle - he was not happy about that!
Great service and food was incredible! Had the filet and lobster tail!
Food was fantastic. Texas is a little pricier than we normally do for dinner, but it was a special occasion so we decided to try it. We will return
We celebrate many birthdays at Texas and always enjoy! This visit was perfect! Thank you to the kind servers and restaurant staff. The food was delicious. We ate every bite.
Would highly recommend!!!
Everything was perfect. Great on every aspect.
Loved the playing of National Anthem
Wonderful food and atmosphere..service was great without being over attentive..loved the entertainment
My husband & I along with two special friends spent a delightful and delicious evening at Texas this week. We felt like family with staff congratulating us at every opportunity. The owner came by our table 3 times to chat and share some history of the place. Our meal was relaxing, the wine was excellent, the food lovingly prepared. Then we were surprised by a very special complimentary dessert topped with a sparkler. They captured our joy with a picture of us, another happy memory.
We have always loved this restaurant for its awesome atmosphere and wonderful food. The waitstaff is so efficient and friendly. They appropriately wear masks and tables allow for social distancing, but nothing detracts from the service or the experience.
We will return often and would encourage anyone desiring a special meal and evening to do the same. You won't be disappointed.
Took my wife for our anniversary and was very please. Nice atmosphere, delicious food and service beyond compare. We had a constant rotation of service and we're never left lacking of anything. If you want a good meal, great ambiance and service that models what every restaurant should follow then this is you place.
Amazing food and service. Music was a little loud when we arrived but thankfully we were sat upstairs where it was easier to carry conversation.
It was our first time in this place. Everything was perfect. Food was delicious, service was great, atmosphere was wonderful. I can definitely recommend this restaurant
It was out first time and chose it for a Birthday celebration. It won’t be our last. Great food and awesome service!
First time there and we ate on the outdoor patio. Music was nice but not too loud. Food was great with excellent service. Nice menu with a good variety to choose from. Pricing was moderate to pricey but you still felt like it was a good value due to the service, quality and ambience.
