Live Like a Local in Arlington

Arlington is not only your new home but is home to Six Flags over Texas Amusement Park, Theatre Arlington, International Bowling Hall of Fame, and the Texas Rangers. You are lucky to have discovered a city with such great weather and loads of activities to keep your calendar full. Ask around for the best places to visit. Here is a starting point for restaurants, shopping, and hair salons.

Where to eat like a local

You will think you are royalty when you eat at Prince Lebanese Grill. The gyro is the best around with juicy, tender meat that is seasoned right off the grill. The Greek salad should be drowned in the special cucumber sauce – it’s that good. Don’t have time to sit down and eat? Don’t worry; there are to-go options.

Babe’s Chicken Dinner House has the best fried poultry and is known as the go-to spot for chicken. If fried food isn’t your thing, you can get delectable smoked chicken instead. Not full from all that fried goodness? Try your taste buds at one of the many homemade pies made fresh daily.

You can’t have lists like this without a burger joint. Chophouse Burger is always packed and for a good reason. Chef Kenny Mills is locally known for big, flavorful burgers. The signature CH Burger includes chopped brisket, bacon, and homemade steak sauce. The burgers come with huge, crunchy onion rings – need we say more?

Arlington shopping

You will find a wide mix of apparel, electronics and specialty shops among various restaurant options. Arlington Highlands offers leisurely shopping you can make a day of followed by a meal with friends or family.

Conveniently located off Interstate 30 & Collins St. in Arlington, Lincoln Square is your central location and offers stores like Ross, The Gap, SteinMart, Chico’s, and Rack Room Shoes.

Gracie Lane is filled with a wide array of boutiques. You can find stores that are bold or subtle, which makes this a great spot to find that perfect gift for that hard to please person. Sometimes a little out of the ordinary is a good thing.

Salons in Arlington

Texas is known for big hair. Are you ready for that style? Even if you aren’t, you still need to find a place to get your hair cut.
