Out of all the holidays of the year, Easter is the one that seems to go hand-in-hand with brunch. While Thanksgiving and Christmas are all about giant dinners, Easter is more about family gatherings, Chruch and Easter egg hunting for the kids. In between those destinations, there is time to hit up a favorite restaurant for some food. There are a lot of options for Easter brunch in the Dallas and Fort Worth area but realize that the best bet to get into any of these locally owned restaurants, a reservation is probably required for Easter Sunday. This year, here are the best Easter brunch menus in the DFW area.

Asador Restaurant
2222 Stemmons Freeway
Dallas, TX 75207
(214) 267-4815

Asador offers Easter brunch in the DFW area every year. Last year, there was an Easter brunch buffet that cost $55 for adults and $20 for kids over six. There was also live music and a bubble bar. Reservations were required. Included on the buffet was breakfast food, including bacon, sausage and fresh fruits, as well as salads, oysters, and local sliced beef offerings. There were also specials on Bloody Marys and Mimosas for adults. The timeframe in 2017 was 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., so expect something similar in 2018.

Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse
702 Ross Ave.
Dallas, TX 75202

The Y.O. Steakhouse is a Dallas original, taking its heritage from the Y.O. Ranch in Hill Country. While it remains one of the can’t miss stops for steak in the DFW area, they also have great options for brunch, especially for Easter Sunday. Last year, the price was $45 per person for a specially designed brunch menu. This included starters, entrees and desserts, with each customer creating their own meal from the menu. Whether a person wants Chicken Fried Lobster Benedict, Shrimp and Grits, or Texas Hill Country Omelet, the Y.O. Steakhouse promises a Texas-sized brunch for any taste.

Blue Mesa Grill

Every year, the Blue Mesa Grill offers a special Easter brunch for its patrons. The restaurant offers extended hours every Easter for people to come in and start their Easter off in style. There is a buffet that has just about anything a person could dream of for brunch, including the Street Taco station, an Omelet Bar, a salad station, pies, Enchiladas, desserts, and more. There are limited spaces so reservations are required for the Easter brunch buffet at Blue Mesa Grill.
