Conveniently located on Main Street, Eight 11 has been a hit since it opened in 2013. All the locals love its patio, and if you visit at the right time, you might even hear some live music.

They’re not joking when they call themselves a burger joint. Kenny’s Burger Joint is one of the premier burger destinations in Frisco.
The burgers here aren’t just any burgers. They’re cooked to perfection over the restaurant’s famous hickory wood-burning grill.
I gave myself a real treat and ordered the Royale with Cheese Burger. This sandwich includes a juicy burger dressed with swiss (or pepperjack) cheese, American cheese, cheddar cheese, and the freshest produce toppings, such as lettuce and sliced tomato.

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar – Arlington
4001 Arlington Highlands Blvd, Arlington, TX 76018
I’ve been a longtime fan of The Keg chain of steakhouse restaurants, and its location in Arlington has everything I’ve come to expect from The Keg.
While it might be down to personal preference, I recommend always treating yourself with a starter before your entree when you’re at The Keg.
There are so many delicious appetizers on the menu here, like French Onion Soup, Baked Garlic Shrimp, Scallops & bacon, and Shrimp Cocktail. I’m partial to cheese, so I went with the Baked Brie with basil pesto, crostini, and red pepper jelly.
And what about my entree? I chose the Peppercorn New York, which includes crusted sirloin and whisky sauce. It was absolutely sublime. Give it a try!
3525 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206
Pizzeria Testa is one of Frisco’s several legendary pizza restaurants. This local institution’s specialty is authentic Neapolitan style, in a wide array of varieties. In my opinion, Pizzeria Tests has an impressive menu.
Some of its most popular culinary creations are the Marinara, Pancetta, Primavera, Salsiccia, Tessa Rossa, Margherita, and Tiramisu.
Pizzeria Testa is located close to Frisco Square, a place that can only be called the heart of the city. This part of Frisco is wonderfully pedestrian-friendly, and it’s full of shopping, entertainment, and fantastic restaurants.
Make sure you walk over to Frisco Square after your meal. Or maybe you’ll shop at Frisco Square first and work up an appetite, heading to Pizzeria Testa for lunch or dinner afterward.

Dee Lincoln Prime is located in The Star. What’s that? It’s the campus and headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys, a world-famous football team. So if you’re a steak fan as well as an NFL fan, Dee Lincoln is the place for you.
This is a steakhouse, but it’s decidedly upscale. If you’re not craving steak, you can get outstanding seafood dishes here, too.
You can get sushi here, at the sushi bar in-house. And you can pair your sushi with the tequila of your choice. Dee Lincoln Prime also has an excellent wine list. I paired my steak dinner with a glass of wonderful red wine, suggested by the server.

Without a doubt, The Heritage was one of my most memorable culinary experiences in Frisco. This restaurant is found in a house dating back to Victorian times, and everything about this establishment and its decor is warm and comfortable.

Cut & Bourbon is a classic-style steakhouse with chic yet rustic contemporary decor. It’s got a full menu with a juicy steak, delectable roast chicken, and great burgers.
The “Bourbon” in Cut & Bourbon comes from the selection of bourbons (as well as whiskeys) that this restaurant has on offer.
This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so head over to Cut & Bourbon for the meal of your choice.
In my opinion, Cut & Bourbon does a great job not only with its food but also with its presentation and decor. There’s a distinctly rustic flair in the dining room.
If you’re visiting Frisco, you’ve got to eat at Cut & Bourbon at least once. The American Black Angus steaks are amazing.

Nearby in Arlington, Fork in the Road is another must-visit culinary destination when you’re in the Frisco area.

I headed down to Didi’s Downtown for brunch one weekend, and I enjoyed the Short Stack, a pancakes dish.
I’ve got a big sweet tooth, and I loved these buttermilk pancakes complete with maple syrup and butter. The dish also comes with sausage or bacon and two eggs.
Some of the most popular main menu items at Didi’s Downtown include the Blackened Catfish Pontchartrain, Fish and Chips, Texican Chicken, and Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich. When it comes to dessert, the Hot Fudge Pie is heavenly.
