Anyone know of a real good restaurant within a reasonable cab ride from DFW airport? Thanks.

You are kind of limited -- downtown Dallas or Fort Worth are each 30+ (or more if it's rush hour) away.

Some options (under 10 min ride)
Las Colinas area: Cool River cafe or The Ranch
Grapevine: Bob's Steak and Chop or Wine Wood
Southlake: Truluck's

Define real good restaurant. Fine dining? Local cuisine such as casual BBQ? Other?

That's a tough one. Trying to come close to Fearings within a cab ride of the airport. I'd lean towards the steakhouses: Bob's Steak & Chop House (my preference) in Grapevine or Old Hickory Steakhouse inside the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. You could just stay at the airport and catch the DFW Skylink over to Terminal C and go to Mr G's. I understand it is really good. Nothing even remotely like airport food.

If you have a car waiting on you curbside and posted speeds highways the entire route. Not sure that qualifies as "within a reasonable cab ride from DFW airport". If it is then we've just opened a ton of new possibilities including Fearings he mentioned which is closer than Gemma btw.

Bob's Steakhouse in Grapevine is awesome and have had several great dinners there.

il Calabrese is solid Italian and very good. I've only had business lunches there but we have loved it. I am actually doing this soon and flying in for a client lunch for the day.
