10 Local Eateries

10 Local Eateries

by Steve Gamel

When it comes to deciding where we want to take the family for dinner on a Friday or Saturday night, many of us are creatures of habit. It’s so much easier to pull into a familiar chain restaurant or a local spot we’ve fallen in love with than spend forever finding something new that everyone will enjoy.

We’re not suggesting there’s anything wrong with that, but there are so many other options to take advantage of in Denton County – many of which have been right under our noses the entire time.

Below are our Top 10 list of local restaurants you need to try today. 

Bumbershoot BBQ
425 US-377 S. | Argyle, TX 76226 | 940.595.1782
Talk about being off the beaten path. Bumbershoot is a 32-foot trailer surrounded by picnic tables and friendly folks. It is here you can find the finest and most delicious meats, including beef, pork, chicken, and sausage. Lunch and dinner are served until the food runs out, so you’d better get there fast for a meat lover’s experience like none other. (photo courtesy of Bumbershoot BBQ Facebook)

Giovanni’s Pizza
100 Country Club Rd. | Argyle, TX 76226 | 940.464.9899
Whether you want to dine in our carry out, Giovanni’s is a basic family-owned pizzeria that is a nice change of pace from the typical Pizza Hut trip. This local treasure also offers pasta, calzones, and sandwiches. (photo courtesy of Giovanni’s Pizza Facebook)

Burgers & Brats
6100 Long Prairie Rd., #300 | Flower Mound, TX 75028 | 972.539.9110
Definitely a hidden treasure in Denton County – and it’s amazing. From German-style pork sausage and pork & beef sausage to Reuben sandwiches and to-die-for burgers that taste like they came straight from a backyard cookout, there is a little something for everyone at Burgers & Brats.

J2 Steakhouse
119 E Main St. | Lewisville, TX 75057 | 972.537.5547
A newcomer to the Denton County scene, J2 Steakhouse has quickly made a name for itself both from a culinary standpoint and its unique and inviting atmosphere. Everything is made from scratch, right down to the ketchup, breads, and ice cream. Dive into their Prime Angus Filet, Prime Akaushi Rib Eye, or Seared Halibut. You won’t be disappointed.
