There's nothing more relaxing than a weekend brunch with friends or family. Mimosas, Bloody Marys, gourmet coffees are great ways to jumpstart a lazy weekend. It's all about the choices: eggs fixed 20 different ways, your favorite breakfast meats, sweet rolls and muffins all make dining fun. Tex-Mex brunch buffets offer a host of breakfast items and a few regular meal favs like fajitas and enchiladas too.
What's the best thing about brunch? For some of us, it's bottomless Mimosas. For me, it's being able to sample a variety of items on the buffet. Sometimes I don't like to commit to just one entree -- but sampling several different dishes is a fun way to experience brunch.
If you didn't see your favorite brunch or breakfast spot here, email me at Dallas@AboutGuide.com. DFW has so many fabulous restaurants that it's virtually impossible to eat your way across the Metroplex. But I certainly try!
