Brunch at Trinity Groves

April 19, 2019

If you live in Dallas or plan on visiting anytime soon, you need to know about Trinity Groves. Not only do they have a collection of amazing restaurants, but you can walk around and get some of the best views of Downtown Dallas. It’s the perfect place to walk hand-in-hand with your significant other, chow down on a great meal, bring your friends and family, or celebrate a life event. Recently, I have discovered that there is a HUGE brunch scene at Trinity Groves that deserves attention.

My sweet friend Leah, founder of Blog and Brunch DFW, invited a few of us on a culinary brunch adventure featuring several of the wonderful restaurants. Then, Adam took me there the next day to try the vegan restaurant.

About Trinity Groves

Trinity Groves is made up of restaurants housed in old industrial warehouses. A chef or restauranteur bring their concept to a team of experienced restaurateurs, and if accepted, will be assisted along the way to make the restaurant of their dreams. This has brought quite a bit of diversity to the Dallas food scene. One of the coolest things about Trinity Groves is that you can find all of this variety in one area.

You can also join one of the many events they host monthly to become more familiar with the area and it’s talent.

Chino Chinatown

Chino Chinatown is a blend of Asian dishes with Latin ingredients. Their brunch menu has traditional favorites with a twist.

Menu favorites

Everyone in our group loved the Pineapple Fried Rice. For starters, it was vegetarian, so I ate the heck out of it. However, it was incredibly unique. I love the addition of avocado and pineapple for a slightly sweet and smooth finish.

The Chino Brunch Skillet is the perfect savory meal, since its full of meat, veggies and runny eggs.

Another delicious savory treat is the Shrimp Omelette served with breakfast potatoes.

If you prefer sweet breakfasts, don’t miss out on the Tres Leches French Toast. I couldn’t get enough of this stuff.

Remember, brunch without alcohol is just a sad breakfast, so be sure to try the Angry Turtle or another one of their speciality cocktails.

The Hall Bar and Grill

The mastermind behind Bob’s Steak and Chop House is the brilliant brain behind this saloon-style steakhouse. If you haven’t been to The Hall Bar and Grill for brunch yet, you are truly missing out.

Menu favorites

Do yourself a favor and order the Cinnamon Rolls. Yes, they are this huge, and yes they are incredible.

If cinnamon rolls aren’t your thing, but you are craving something sweet try the Brioche French Toast with Whiskey Apples.

A delicious savory option is the Cornbeef Hash with Poached Eggs.

I wanted to break my meatless fast for the Steak and Eggs, but I resisted. Everyone else loved the steak.

No matter what your cocktail of choice is, Hall has you covered, so don’t forget a yummy drink to go with your brunch.


LUCK is all about promoting the local beer industry and only serves beers brewed within a 75 mile radius. They are also a casual brunch spot with a mouth-watering menu.

Menu favorites

One of my favorite menu items anywhere is Chilaquiles (I even shared a copycat recipe here). LUCK offers shrimp and chicken chilaquiles.

Another meat item that had me drooling was the Pastrami Eggs Benedict.

French toast is incredibly popular in the Trinity Groves area, but this Bread Pudding French Toast is the perfect texture. I love the candied nuts and cream cheese drizzle.

It wouldn’t be a brunch without a beer-inspired breakfast cocktail. Order the Beermosa to go with any of your choices.

Beto & Son

Beto and his son Julian have created a scratch Mexican kitchen with fresh flavors and creative dishes at Beto & Son.

Menu favorites

A quick and delicious brunch choice are the Breakfast Tacos.

Our table loved the Breakfast Tortas too. Give me all that avocado.

The Bread Pudding French Toast is the perfect choice for the sweet tooth lover.

Don’t forget about your drink. The Frozen Prickly Pear Swirl Margarita tastes as good as it looks.

V Eats Modern Vegan

If the word vegan scares you, do yourself a favor and check out V Eats. Since my 7 weeks of no meat, I have been to a ton of different restaurants, and I still cannot believe I was able to eat what I did at V Eats. Everything on their menu is plant-based, vegan, and taste like what I have been missing.

Menu favorites

One of the things I have missed most during my vegetarian fast is biscuits and sausage gravy. lol and behold the first thing I saw on the menu was Biscuits and Sausage Cream Gravy, so I ordered it. I can’t get over that everything is plant based.

Adam had the Chicken Fried Steak, and again, tastes like the real thing. You won’t believe you are eating plants.
