    Casa Rubia’s cheese plate kicks ass. What it doesn’t include in variety of meats it makes up for in quality.

  • Lynn

    I frequent many of the above restaurants and I have had their charcuterie boards but the best in town, is Casa Rubia, hands down! Top quality meats and cheeses!

  • Chris

    no Lucia! Bolsa and FT33 are awesome but for me Lucia is the best

  • Mr. DVMP

    WHAT???? You have some of my favorites on the list but I am stunned that Lucia did not make the list? Hands down, the best in town. An insanely tasty daily changing mix of house cured salumie, speck, mortadella and the most delectable melt in your mouth liver. Add a couple of foie stuffed prunes and you have heaven. The best in Dallas!

    CBD Provisions should definitely be on this list. Their board is absolutely amazing (and impressive to photograph!!)
