Artichoke dip is one of the most common appetizers and offered in many restaurants, but some are definitely better than others. It comes in different varieties as well, often with spinach, garlic, or cheese, and sometimes all of the above. It is served most often with tortilla chips for dipping, but can also include dippers such as pita bread, French bread or veggies. Here are some of the best places around Dallas to find this creamy favorite.
