Nick and Sam's is a steakhouse, though it also has a sushi chef. Go there if you want to rub elbows with Dallas Cowboys players and Dallas socialites.

(Those last two options? They're really great options. Just sayin'.)

You could also consult a list compiled by car service Uber. The company released a list of the 10 "most popular restaurants in Dallas" based on the highest number of total drop-offs.

Interestingly, the top eight restaurants on Uber's list are in Uptown. The last two are in the Henderson Avenue area.

The most popular restaurants in Dallas, according to Uber, are:

If you're a regular restaurantgoer in Dallas, you'll notice one thing right away: Uber's list is basically a list of the hottest restaurants in Dallas for people of a certain age -- millennials. That's no surprise, probably. Uber drivers can be seen all over the roads in Uptown on busy weekend nights. Given the neighborhood's propensity for indulging and imbibing, it makes sense.

Keep this in mind, too: Restaurants that tend to have difficult parking or non-optional valet have a higher likelihood of being on this list, as diners probably take Uber more often to those places. 

Uber also ranked most popular brunch spots (which looks very similar to the most popular restaurants list, proving that brunch is the most important meal of the day in Dallas). You can also check out "where locals eat," which was calculated by repeat drop-offs.

Does this list reflect what you consider to be the most popular restaurants in Dallas? Let's talk on @guidelive.
