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

Our family had a good family dinner at Dunston's last night. We all had steak, their salad bar and either baked potatoes or roasted vegetables. The steak was good, cooked well and reasonably priced; the salad bar was full of fresh vegetables and tasty toppings;...More

Terrific prices and a lot of food for the money. I had the chicken fried steak and it came with 3 sides for less than $10.00. More food than I could eat. Would eat here again. Served alcohol but apparently wine only which I don't...More

Terrific prices at this which is considered the Oldest Steakhouse in Dallas. There are two locations and bet the Harry Hines location is the oldest but you cannot go wrong here! Nice salad bar loaded with goodies but what i loved is that the steaks...More

I went here with my wife and in-laws. It was a reasonably disappointing experience. I'd heard good things, but Dunston's fell short in several regards. First, we were seated right next to the service station even though the restaurant was 15% full. Why? Second, our...More

This time our food was way overcooked. Disappointed. Salad bar is great. Always fresh. The catfish was very small 1 piece. Should have more fish

We have been here other times, but our most recent visit was pretty disappointing. The food was mediocre - vegetable special on Saturday night was baked sweet potato. Mine was about the size of a ping pong ball, and edged on being burned. My sister...More

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

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.
