White Castle and Krystal are great. White Castle is available frozen in many grocery stores, but the taste is somewhat less than fresh. Also usually overpriced.

Not your imagine. One thing to know about D/FW, its a center of restaurant management:
Brinkers is based in Dallas - Macaroni Grille, On the Border, Fuddruckers, Corner Bakery, and Maggianos
La Madeleine;
TGIFridays
Pizza Hut,
Pizza Inn
Chuck E Cheese;
Three Forks
Bobs Steak and Chop House
Mooyah Burgers


Also, the demographics attract a lot of new concepts to D/FW as their first Texas locale, for example, In-and-Out Burger came to D/FW as their first opening east of the Rockies.


Texas in general has a lot of restaurant chain headquarters that are now in multiple states - Whataburger out of Corpus Christi, Pappas Family out of Houston which owns Pappadeaux, Pappas Steakhouse, Pappasitos and Pappas BBQ, Austin with Chuys.

In DFW you can get Shake Shack, Culvers,In-N-Out, and Whataburger which are all somewhat regional to the East Coast, Upper Midwest, and West Coast, and Texas respectively.

Plus you have all the national chains: Smash burger, 5 Guys plus Waffle House which is somewhat regional (didn't have em back home in Idaho)

DFW doesn't have ALL the chains: It's missing Tim Hortons and from the Mountain West it's missing Arctic Circle, but it has to be the only place or among a select few places the "Big 4 regional cult classics" (Shake Shack, Culvers, In-N-Out, Whataburger) are all available.
Tim Horton's isn't mountain west. Its Canadian Border centric as the chain is based in Canada. Who is "Artic Circle"?


Also, Dallas has had Freddy's Custard,Braum's and Steak & Shake that you really don't see south of Waco.

get that just prefer non chains though there are some decent ones, I particularly liked b good recently


And uber eats delivers non chains all the time (if fact I don't think I can even get McDs where I live via uber eats, though maybe I can) I know the Asian guy (he calls himself that Asian guy) that does his own impromptu delivery network locally on an electric powered bike will do it as he got my daughter fries there once when she was recovering from being ill and craving their salty fries


they are less common here and many more non chain options in the NE compared to just about any other area. I hate only having these choices which is to much of America is all


anywhere I find lots of taco bells makes me cringe in preparation for that evenings meal (and am not eating there in the first place)

C'mon, fast food? This is like asking if Bill's Records around the corner has the greatest variety of Nickelback CDs.

Only in Dallas can you get Waffle House, Cracker Barrel, In-N-out, and an 85 Degrees C (Taiwanese bakery) and 99 Ranch (Taiwanese supermarket), all within 30 minutes.

Yeah I was missing a coma; Timmys is Canadian.

Arctic Circle is a chain the the Mountain West. Utah, and Idaho mostly though they also have 1-2 locations in OR, WA, and WY respectively.
