2-3 hour layover DFW Airport

OP is not a passenger so dining inside the airport wouldn't work since they're all within TSA secured area.

A good point so I'd probably stick to the hotel.
Hopefully, OP will report back and lets us know how things work out wherever they choose to try.

SF hound needs help Ft Worth

By no means be taken in by Joe T Garcia's, <snip>.
You may not be able to get any two of us to agree on what's best, but that is the definitive word on what's worst! foiegras

Oh, come on. They aren't that bad and, I imagine you're called foiegras for a reason. Joe T has managed to please enough people to stay in business 50 years and still pack in several hundred eaters at a time. It ain't all tourist hype.

2-3 hour layover DFW Airport

I think some of these suggestions are based on a perfect world that doesn't exist at DFW airport. By the time your folks actually arrive, (maybe late), get through the terminal, locate a cab, drive to Grapevine or Irving, get seated, fed, call another cab and get back to the airport, during rush hour, through security and to the gate even seconds before the door of their departing flight is closed, (assuming it is on time), probably means they can plan a leisurely evening meal at any of the places named since they may be spending the night.

I'd suggest a trip to the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the airport:

Mister G's
An incomparable dining experience at Mister G’s
Jacob's Spring Grille
Featuring New American cuisine with a regional flair

Best grapefruit?

We've used Pittman & Davis in Harlingen for the last 30 years or so and been happy with them.

what makes tex-mex tex-mex?

South Texas? That's been a long time ago, but I recall a place in Harlingen or Wesleco
I believe was called Los Lomas where we ate frequently and there were numerous other hole-in-the-walls in McAllen, Brownsville and South Padre Island with brown meat sauce. I don't recall anything down there much different from the San Antionio, Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth variety.
The only significant variation I know of is in El Paso where red and green, (not tomatillo), sauces reign supreme but that is so far west, it is more New Mex-Mex. (And lots better in my opinion).
I always figure Texas Tex-Mex applies to the stuff served in the strip from Brownsville to Amarillo about the width from Lubbock to Dallas with Corpus and Houston thrown in for
good measure.

what makes tex-mex tex-mex?

If the cheese enchiladas have brown sludge on top, they're Tex-Mex.

Dallas-Bowie-Wichita Falls-Amarillo-Santa Fe

We liked Del's in Tucumcari. Hated the Country Barn in Amarillo - which used to be great but this time had w a a a y too much sugar in everything from the coleslaw to the barbecue sauce and the Mexican enchilada was still frozen in the center. Too bad.

Sunday night in Ft. Worth

Don't know your definition of "great", but certainly Joe T. Garcia's on north main at least qualifies as "historic" and it is open Sundays.

Tio Joes - Anybody been?

Has the Tio Joe's in Grapevine opened and closed? We went by there a couple of times thinking it was going to open any day but now it looks abandoned.

Mid-Cities Indian...finally

I'm no expert in Indian food but having liked Pasand in Irving for several years, I think
Masala Masala is as good. A very impressive buffet and the food seemed high quality.
Spicy but not very hot - chile wise.

What are the idiots at Luby's thinking?

Thanks, but it's tough since independents are a rare and dying breed in the Hurst, Bedford, Euless area. We like a lunch around $10 or less and in, out and back to work in under an hour - and to further complicate things, we're tired of just about everything around since menus never seem to change much.

What are the idiots at Luby's thinking?

In this economic environment how can Luby's overhaul their pricing to the extent they charged me over $22 for a pork chop, salad, three vegetables, bread and tea -- for lunch! Sure, I was stupid for assuming they still had a fixed price, but even A la Carte, that is an absurd price for a cafeteria.
Count me out forever.

[DFW] Cowboys BBQ and Ribs

Well, I drove 4 miles, not 50 but it did knock my socks off - just not in a good way. A to-go order, medium sized pile of average brisket served between two pieces of white Texas Toast served cold right out of the bag. BBQ sauce out of the Kraft bottle and two small plastic containers of ordinary pinto beans and cole slaw. All for $15. They forgot the chips that were supposed to be included.
I'm not a big fan of Dickey's but it is at least as good and half the price.
