Meet Tenielle, the founder and owner of Dallas Food Truck Pros, a gourmet food truck mini-empire. Starting with just one truck, the local food truck collective has grown to a five truck operation. From sushi to pizza, to donuts and more, her food truck gang has something delicious for any food craving. With such eclectic tastes, we were dying to ask Tenielle what her favorites are in the Dallas area. Read on for her Best In Dallas list!


Foodie Favorite: Bowen House

“My favorite place is Bowen House; [it is] so unique,” Tenielle boasted of the McKinney Ave. cocktail destination. “I have taken everyone I know there at some point. This place screams individual, and has such a great vibe.” Of the expansive craft cocktail menu, she touts, “everyone that works there is happy, the drinks are so unique, and the menu has things on it [that] you just don’t see much anywhere.” Great minds must think alike, because we interviewed someone from Bowen House a few weeks ago for his own Best In Dallas list.


On The Move: Klyde Warren Park

“Klyde Warren has free yoga in the morning,” Teneille tells us of the urban park. Boasting a variety of free activities ranging from workouts to live music, it’s a local favorite for enjoying the outdoors on your lunch break or on the weekends with the kids. With a dog park and performance pavilion, it is a perfect spot for a beautiful day out. Break a sweat and get your heart pumping for free with the park’s weekly outdoor fitness programs including boot camp, yoga, tai chi, Zumba, and even ballroom dancing.


Brain Candy: Dallas Arts District

Tenielle is clearly creative at heart. A food truck park is, after all, incredibly unique and requires some imagination! Her favorite spot to check out the local scene is strolling around in the Dallas Arts District. Of the monthly art deal, she exclaims, “do people know that museums in the Arts District are free on the third Thursday of every month? So cool!”


I Heart Dallas: Browder Street Plaza

“You know I’m going to say Browder Street Plaza,” she tells us. “It’s just now getting known, but it’s certainly unique and a special location.” A gourmet food truck camp nestled in downtown has arrived as a collaboration between Hamilton Properties and Tenielle’s own Dallas Food Truck Pros. The culinary genius has cooked up a food truck maven Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Plaza, located on Browder St. between Commerce and Jackson Streets. In addition to great food fares, the Plaza features outdoor games, music, and special events.  And, of course, it’s dog-friendly.


Artistic Addiction: 500X Gallery

500X is one of Texas’ oldest, artist-run, cooperative galleries – established in 1978! “I live in such a cool place, it’s actually an art gallery,” Tenielle told us of her unconventional living space. “Once a month they feature up-and-coming artists and have a party right outside my door. It’s really cool, except when you  have to go get your mail in your sweat pants!” The gallery is located in a historic circa 1916 tire factory and air-conditioning warehouse and has over 3,000 whopping square feet of exhibition space for Tenielle to roam around in.
