The Best Kept Secret in Cedar Hill – Trios grill

MAhi Mahi with Crab Meat Imperial

I just discovered the cutest little restaurant that serves New American/Mexican cuisine right on the edge of Old Downtown Cedar Hill.

Trios Grill is just south of Beltline Road on Cooper Street off of Highway 67.

Why in the world has no one told me about this place yet?



Trio’s Grill is inside an adorable little pier and beam house probably no larger than 1500 square feet.

The entrance is right through the front door and after you go through a small entry hall you’re greeted in the living room of the house which is the dining room of the restaurant. Today was such a gorgeous day, no one was eating inside.


The outdoor eating area is in the back yard. There is a super homey outdoor bar with flat screens, a huge waterfall, and a fire place.

Seriously it’s just the cutest place ever.

I can’t wait for an excuse to celebrate something so we can all meet up here.


This place is really unique for the area, and the Chef Hector Angeles is looking to impress.

He delivers. This is the most upscale menu I’ve seen south of Oak Cliff.

It’s Downtown Dallas dining in the suburbs.


It’s so nice to have something other than chips or bread and butter as a starter.

Besides the amazing food, the BEST thing about this place? They have a kitty!


This is Garfield. He is very sweet and affectionate and likes mahi mahi.

I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to be able to get this level of cuisine in a land full of chain burger restaurants.

Chef Hector’s Ay Caramba chips are like amped up, homemade Cool Ranch Doritos.

We took a bag home.
