Ellen's Southern Kitchen
Meatloaf, chicken-fried steak, and other home-cooking classics are on the menu at this supremely practical spot in Dallas' West End. After killing it in the former Johnny Rocket's space on Market, Ellen's moved in May 2016 to bigger digs in the historial Fairbanks Morse brick building, now dubbed Market Ross Place. The restaurant is still open morning, noon, and night, but now there is a coffee bar, with a grand La Marzocco Strada espresso machine, where downtown workers can get cappuccinos to go. A full bar has local beers and plenty of room to sit for a pint.
