City Works, the southern comfort food joint in The Star will offer a two-course lunch for $19 and a three-course dinner for $39 this DFW Restaurant Week. Enjoy indulgent items like the secret sauce southern mac and cheese, made with  pork shoulder, pimento cheese, a signature sauce and cornbread crumble. Or, keep it light with the salmon. Either way, for dessert, we’ll definitely have to try the peanut butter Snickers pie.

The newly remodeled Mexican Bar Co. is offering $19 two-course lunch deals and $49 three course dinner deals. Spice things up by starting with the mango guacamole, then get a taste of the mariscada; a seafood dish containing chili-rubbed shrimp, cod, octopus and calamari. You can rest assured we’ll be grabbing a slice of the tres leches cake for dessert.

Enjoy music, good food and good beer at Grandscape’s new brewery, Windmills. For $39, you can get two starters and an entree, and pair them with a beer for an additional $5. We can’t wait to try the broccoli malai and the blackened redfish, paired with Windmills’ signature blonde.

Wash it all down with boba tea from one of these poppin’ shops!

Don’t forget that it’s Hatch chile season! Get a kick of spice at one of these spots.
