American Airlines magazine said it was the best place to get a drink in Dallas, for what that's worth - I can name a few that I prefer, if you're interested.
How long are you here? How many meals out?
Edited to take out unnecessary commentary and edit some poor, poor grammar.

Do you have any new suggestions for the Plano or Northern suburbs? We are back in town and are always looking for fun new places.

Any new info on this topic? I'll be in Dallas for the first 2 weeks in June. Will be working, so can't take any day trips to Austin, etc. Will eat anything (huitlacoche, tripe, etc.). Prefer holes-in-the-wall! Thanks in advance.

Abacus - get the tasting menu with the upgraded wine pairings
Sushi Sake - the salmon sashimi is amazing, uni sushi and grilled hamachi collar also very good
Meddlesome Moth - extensive beer selection; the mussels in coconut broth were delicious
Kalachandjis - great vegetarian lunch buffet, wonderful setting
Royal China - get handmade noodles and dumplings
Tei-An - can't remember what it is called but the pieces of Kobe cooked on a hot rock are TDF, expense account would be helpful
Mughlai - the best Indian lunch buffet I have ever had; if you go for dinner or don't like buffets get murgh malai kebab, kadhai paneer, or dal makhani; have a Kingfisher with your meal
Alounak - the lamb shish kabob was great and I would go back just to have it again, the falafel was not good
First Emperor Barbecue - get the green beans with pork and the scallion pancakes, this is the only place on my list that approaches "hole-in-the-wall"
If you have access to a kitchen or are driving and can shop for things to take home get lamb rib chops at Sara's Market.
Jimmy's is another great place to shop and the sandwiches from the deli are really good (try the tuna).

This trip I ate at:
Blue Sushi Sake Grill on Walnut Hill Lane
I had the good fortune to show up during happy hour and took full advantage!
The calamari was tender. I found it somewhat under seasoned and there was no salt on the table. I used soy sauce instead but would have preferred salt. I had one order of each of the speciality nigiri: blue balls - oddly sweet but still quite tasty; cherry bomb - good but not great; itchy salmon - excellant, I ordered a second helping; zuke maguro - good but not great. The service was good and I enjoyed sitting on the patio.
Pera Turkish Kitchen on Preston Rd.
I had the Adana, one of their "signature " dishes. It is well-seasoned grilled ground lamb. I found it delicious and also really enjoyed the cabbage salad served on the side. The baklava was also very good. Service was very good.
The chicharrones appetizer was the best dish of the trip. I don't typically go back to a restaurant, preferring to try new places, but I will definitely go back for these. Very good service in spite of a crowd.
Oso on Preston is apparently closed. The website and recorded phone message both say they open at 5 so I was frustrated to find the door locked at 5:20, especially given the traffic I endured to get there. Fortunately, Mesomaya was right across the street.
