Sit in the back room and come with an appetite. The salad bar is fantastic as well as the steaks. Very inexpensive for what it is.

My ribeye here was pretty good. A tad undercooked, but better than overcooked! Nice old fashioned drink, good salad bar.

The food was phenomenal and the wait staff were excellent. Due to open grilling the general atmosphere is rather smoky and smells strongly of smoke. I don't mind it personally but we have small children. Probably not the best atmosphere for younger kids. Would make...More

Absolutely delicious! The salad bar is nicely stocked with homemade dressings. I had a perfect Medium cook 9oz bacon wrapped filet that was so delicious! Beautiful seasonings. Unassuming excellence by the look of the establishment from the outside. Seems small and dark; it’s perfect and...More

Dunstan's has not changed in years (aside from becoming smoke-free). Sit in the back with the regulars, order a steak and salad bar, you won't be disappointed.

Love the laid back atmosphere & country music in the back seating area. The salad bar is great, good steak, & service was very good. Not a fancy place, but good food.

Large portions and very reasonable prices make this place an easy place to eat. Many of the staff have been there for long time! We usually order the Prime Steak. It is always well seasoned and cooked correctly. Often it is enough to split too!!...More

This Dallas institution maintains a fresh, small but tasty salad bar, complete with three types of greens, multiple veggies, and some non-vegan sides.

This place is very casual, nothing too fancy. So jeans & a shirt/t-shirt is fine.

Since 1969, the Lovers Lane location is a true throwback to it's big brother on Harry Hines Blvd (set.1955). This neighborhood restaurant and bar is famous for mesquite grilled steaks, chops, quail, chicken and seafood all cooked on open pits in the dining room. Dunston's garden fresh salad bar is a fan favorite for generations of Dallasites. Locals and out-of-towners alike, have come to know Dunston's as an "old school" Dallas institution.
