The High: Sissy’s Southern Kitchen ($20)
Why it’s Worth it: For the chicken frying of a flat-iron cut, the retro-bespoke vibe and design of the Henderson Avenue restaurant and all the Southern-inspired cocktails you can enjoy alongside it.
The Low: Highland Park Cafeteria (pictured; $6.99)
Perks/Trade-offs: The self-service approach at the East Dallas stalwart may not be for everyone, but the down-home cooking and classic fare usually are.
