Update at 7:02 a.m. July 16: This story has been updated with the list of more than 150 restaurants participating in DFW Restaurant Week.

Nearly 150 restaurants in Dallas-Fort Worth will sell lunch and dinner at a discount this August. DFW Restaurant Week -- which isn't just a single week -- is diners' opportunity to try out a restaurant for $39-$49 per person at dinnertime and $20 at lunch. 

Some of the proceeds from DFW Restaurant Week go to two nonprofits: North Texas Food Bank in Dallas and Lena Pope in Fort Worth.

This year, Restaurant Week runs Aug. 13 through Sept. 3. Restaurants can choose to start early, on what's called Preview Weekend Aug. 10-12. Generally, diners will find a set menu, usually three or four courses, at participating restaurants. Some offer wine pairings.

Here's how to participate in DFW Restaurant Week:

This is big: Dallas dubbed 'next best new food city' in the U.S.
  1. On July 16, check out the list of participating restaurants. See them below, or sort by location at dfwrestaurantweek.com.
  2. Starting July 16, make your reservations at the restaurants you want to visit. Reservations are recommended.
  3. In August and early September: Eat!

Says Lena Pope CEO Todd Landry in a statement: "DFW Restaurant Week is so much more than an opportunity to enjoy a great meal. It's a chance to make life better for someone else. Thanks to the loyal diners and restaurants, we receive hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, which helps us provide much-needed access to high-quality mental health services and educational experiences to local children and families."
