Places to eat with playgrounds!
I highly recommend coming up with a fun family treat to do after your family photos. The questions is, what could the treat be?
If you’re looking to grab something to eat after your session then you might need to consider these places around the Dallas area that offer dining for you and a play area for your kids! That’s a win-win. Your kids are probably going to want to run around and get some energy out, you’re probably are NOT going to want to cook, and you look FABULOUS…so cozy up in these places with a cold drink and let the kids play!
Try the lakewood lemonade and fish tacos while you send the kids out to the sandy playground for hours of entertainment.
7530 E Grand Ave, Dallas, TX 75214
Very allergy friendly! (and bonus every Tuesday kids are half off from 5pm and on!)
Try the sombrero burger (you can make it skinny with no bun and lettuce wrap) with an ice cold beer on tap.
2 locations in DFW:
8185 Walnut Hill Ln, Suite 1400 Dallas, TX 75231
3321 South Custer Road McKinney, TX 75070
There is an old bus, some faux grass and a chalk wall that keeps kids entertained for hours.
Try the avocado deviled eggs!
514 Lockwood Dr #1, Richardson, TX 75080
There is a small dining area that has a huge chalk wall, kid sized tables and a variety of things to entertain little hands while parents can eat their sandwiches, and finish their meal with a popsicle cocktail.
Try the pulled pork or portobello mushroom arepa
5940 Royal Ln, Dallas, TX 75230
Nico’s has a large patio area with a playground. It can get crowded in the spring and fall on the playground but there is always seating outside available.
Try: Cowboys Enchiladas and a frozen margarita
3065 N. Josey Ln. #24 Carrollton, Tx 75007
Our favorite! We have very fun memories here. In fact, as you’re reading this there is a good chance we are here. Say hi! It has an outside covered eating area and an outside playground that seems to have new playground equipment every time we go! Watch the sunset if you haven’t missed it by now.
Try: The brisket tacos and the frozen margaritas are the best.
1012 W Hebron Pkwy W #100, Carrollton, TX 75010
Heritage Pizza and Tap Room
Has an outside playground that is shared with Another Broken Egg Cafe.
Try: the goat and fig pizza and something on their extensive drink menu! I’ve heard on Tuesdays, if you bring a board game kid’s eat free!
3750 Plano Pkwy Suite 600, The Colony, TX 75056
The Magic Time Machine
So this doesn’t technically have a playground, but your kids won’t notice with the fun decorations and costumed servers (such as Superman, Jack Sparrow, and Peter Pan)
Try: sharing the rack of ribs
5003 Beltline Road Dallas, TX 75254
The String Bean'
Try: Pecan toasted Tilapia and their ice cream!
1310 W Campbell Rd, Richardson, TX 75080
