Denton Restaurants

  • Texas Size Steaks!!!

    This is the original restuarant in the Traildust franchise. For those unfamiliar with the concept, this is a real Texas style steak house. The waiters/waitresses wear western wear, there's a dance floor for two-stepping, you throw the peanut shells on the floor, and you're not allowed to be dressed up. As a matter of a fact, if you happen to wear a...

  • Excellent Tex-Mex

    This is a franchise restuarant in the metroplex. However, I have heard that the one located in Denton is the best one out of all of them. They serve up the regular Tex-Mex menu with fajitas, echiladas, quesadillas, etc. Of course, you can always enjoy this with a nice margarita!!!

  • Old School Breakfast

    The Cracker Barrel is a chain of restaurants that line our nations interstates. They have standard bacon, eggs, coffee, biscuits, and gravy fare that is usually very good. The sappy stuff in the waiting area/gift shop usually is avoidable, though you might find something for Uncle Joe Bob there...anyway, this joint just off the Interstate at...

    The street with most bars in Denton is called Fry Street and it is located right next to the University of North Texas. Because of its location, it is a big college hang out, but have some decent places even for people who are a few years older.

Denton Transportation

    The UNT buses serve the students at the university. It provides transportation around campus, to certain off-campus housing, and the mall. It also connects up with the city's bus system, called the Link. While you will be able to go to different places around campus, don't expect to be able to really go anywhere else in town. The public transportation system in Denton is very limited.

  • The Local Mall

    This mall is pretty small considering the size of Denton, but you have to keep in mind that the huge malls around Dallas are not far away (which makes this mal pretty adequate for those minor "mall" necessities). The main stores in the mall are JC Penny, Sears, Foyle's, Ross, Dillards, Barnes and Noble, and DSW Shoes. Other small standards like...

Denton Warnings and Dangers

    Street in the Denton that is in Denton Co.

    by grandmaR Updated Jun 13, 2013

    When I went to locate the place to write my VT tips on Denton, I discovered that there were two Dentons listed on VT. If you want the Denton near Dallas Fort Worth, then this is the wrong one.

    I attempted to notify the people who had pages here, that this was the incorrect place. I wrote

    "There are two Dentons in TX, and this is the one near Abilene, and not the one near McKinney and Dallas in Denton Co where TWU is located."

    Some of the VTers have ignored the comment - probably because they don't sign in very often. One of them moved her page as she readily agreed that this was the wrong place. The URL is for the correct Denton page on VT

    However msbrandysue wrote the following on my home page

    My Denton page is fine. Please stop commenting on my page. When you click on Denton up top it has entries for TWU, UNT, and the Theatre I was apart of. If you have problems please feel free to comment on another page. If it happens again I will report it.

    So BEWARE of commenting on msbrandysue's pages, or she will report you!!!

    There is a small lake/pond in North Lakes park at which you are free to fish in (the city makes sure there is some fish in there). This is the place to go for some quick relaxing on weekend afternoon. Expect to catch some fish, but do not expect to catch dinner...
