Excellent service and wonderful food! You are treated like family. Durell is the manager, and he certainly takes pride in his work. Ask for Linda, Roberto, or Ann as they will take great care of you. We are regulars and sometimes go twice a week....More

Dunston's has been here since 1955 in one form or another. It's a classic steak place, with a pretty limited menu, but all about meat. They have an excellent hamburger too. Reasonable pricing. Nice, big salad bar. All dark wood and black leather decor. I...More

After so many years of driving past this venerable restaurant I went it. Maybe I was waiting for the years of nicotine to clear. Guess that is why the ceilings have been painted black. Wood walls and leather banquets and recent industrial style iron wagon...More

Lunch specials throughout the week vary and are pretty good. My wife likes the 5 oz fillet. The salad bar was fresh with nice options. This is a steakhouse so that's what they do best. Good, hot baked potatoes are a favorite side. Although we...More

We went there because there was a group of us and we did not want to spend a lot of money for dinner. Salad bar looked like it was from old steak house chains of the 1970s. 5 oz fillet was puny. We were with...More

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.
