Since May 1st, Texas restaurants have officially been allowed to reopen their dining rooms at a limited capacity, and we want to provide you with the most up-to-date information that we have. For now, we’re simply going to focus on what we know: which places around Dallas are opening back up and what to expect based on the state-wide restrictions. Currently, the majority of Dallas restaurants have not yet reopened their dining rooms. But like you, we’re monitoring the situation day-by-day (more like hour-by-hour), and we’ll continue to update this guide as restaurants reopen around the city. For more across Texas, see our guides to restaurants reopening in Houston and Austin.
