If you're in the mood for Tex-Mex, there are several Dallas restaurants that serve up this delicious regional cuisine, as well as keep young diners in mind. Mariano's Hacienda has plenty of offerings to keep the whole family happy - famous frozen margaritas for the adults and coloring book menus and crayons for the little ones. Young diners are greeted by a stuffed bear in the lobby, and they can ride on classic coin-operated rides before taking a seat at a table in one of many themed dining rooms - think beach, pinata room and rustic lodge.
Families who want to feel like they've gone to their Texan grandma's house for supper will truly enjoy Babe's Chicken Dinner House in the north Dallas suburb of Carrollton. Babe's offers kid-friendly food, like fried chicken, chicken strips, corn, mashed potatoes with gravy and green beans - and it's all served family style. Diners should save room for the over-the-top banana pudding dessert at the end.
