We hope you’re hungry — It’s time to book your reservation for DFW Restaurant Week. Foodies can explore delicious food + specials at 19 local eateries while supporting regional nonprofits.

First things first

Take “week” with a grain of salt — the 28th annual fundraiser will actually kick off with a preview weekend starting Thursday, Aug. 1. The primary specials will run Monday, Aug. 5-Sunday, Aug. 11, but there are optional extensions lasting until Sunday, Sept. 1.

What to expect

Reservations can be made for brunch, lunch, and dinner with an option to choose a two- or three-course meal. The pricing looks like this:

  • $29 | Two-course lunch
  • $29 | Two-course weekend brunch
  • $49-$59 | Three-course dinner. Prices vary based on the restaurant.
  • $99 | Signature experience. Options vary based on the restaurant but may include cocktails, sitting at the chef’s table, or more than three courses.

Some of these options will be available to go — check with participating restaurants beforehand. Note: Wine and cocktails are not included in the listed price, apart from the signature experience.

Supporting the community

Late 1080 KRLD radio host Jim White started the festival in support of local charities including the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope, a local nonprofit that helps Tarrant County kids in need. During the event, participating Fort Worth-area restaurants will donate 20% of the proceeds to Lena Pope, while Dallas-area restaurants will support the North Texas Food Bank.

In 2023, DFW Restaurant Week raised over $545,000, bringing the total over the last 27 years to over $11 million in charitable donations.
