Instead of shying away from the Texas temps, we're beating the heat and taking the party to the plaza, Levy Plaza, THIS SATURDAY for DFW’s newest and soon-to-be greatest BBQ festival, Lone Star BBQ and Music. You don't want to miss this celebration of all things BARBECUE.
As a diverse and vibrant community, Irving is blessed with a food scene that's made of various global flavors. From soup dumplings to guava jam empanadas, you can count on our local restaurants to serve up some of the most authentic and unique dishes in the Metroplex.
This May, in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we are highlighting some of our most beloved local eateries specializing in flavors from the East.
It’s so Texas that Texas-born singers Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Robert Earl Keen have belted out a tune or two about it. Weekend after weekend, January through December, you’ll be hard pressed not to find a dozen or so festivals or cookoffs around the state in its honor. And today, not just Texas celebrates its greatness. So, on National BBQ Day, we’re sharing Irving’s tangiest, smokiest, sweetest, most finger-licking good BBQ in town.
I once read that “Motherhood is powered by love, fueled by coffee, and sustained by wine.” This quote got me to chuckling, but I don’t think it’s entirely true. We moms run on so many other awesome things that we might not always get, but we love so dearly like mani-pedis, chocolate, movies, and late-night Netflix binge when everyone else is asleep. So to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, we’ve put together a fun itinerary, featuring some of the things mentioned above, for moms to make the most of the holiday in Irving.

We don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, because well…I’m just not into anything cheesy and lovey-dovey like that (ever since I was a teenager, true story!). So when I noticed that Valentine’s Day was like two weeks away from last weekend, I thought, hey, why not do a little staycation around my city of Las Colinas and have a little getaway with my little family. Any excuse to have a little getaway, right?

The originator of the National Empanada Day might be unknown, but we’re glad it was invented because we’ll take any excuse to eat these folded pastries – baked or fried – any day! With its famously diverse food scene, the city of Irving prides itself as one of the best, if not THE ultimate destination for empanadas in DFW, with two empanaderias topping online charts and reviews for more than 5 years and counting! Without further ado, here they are!
