Grand Prairie itself isn't all that appealing for restuarants. But, the widely regarded best barbecue in the Metroplex is Pecan Lodge, Heim, Cattleack, Goldee's, Terry Black's, and Panther City. My personal favorite is Pecan Lodge.The last time I was in Texas someone mentioned Hard 8 but I didn’t have time to go, I’ll be sure to check it out.
If you are here in September, you should consider dove hunting. Plenty of affordable day leases available within a short drive of Grand Prairie.
