Leslie Brenner, Dining Editor of The Dallas Morning News calls it Pyles' "Love Letter to Texas." Inspired by his upbringing in Big Spring, Texas, and learning to cook at his parent' truck stop restaurant, Chef Pyles has created what he refers to as "Modern Texas" cuisine - familiar Texas dishes re-interpreted with a contemporary twist.

Several of the recipes on the menu pay homage to Pyles' family and culinary heroes. A culmination of elements that signify a singular, "True Texas" dining experience in the city, where Uptown and Downtown Dallas connect. Local foods, wines, beers and spirits are showcased in an atmosphere of gracious Southern hospitality and Texas lore interpreted in a fashion that unites the past with the present.

The dining room, conjuring earth and sky, reflects warm tones and exudes Southern hospitality and comfort. Wood paneling and floors are complimented by dramatic, architectural lighting that has long been a trademark of Chef Pyle' restaurants. The overall space is accented by reclaimed materials; Austin stone columns; and accessorized with steel, leather and cowhide, upholstered furnishings.

Stampede has a state of the art video display system and all audio and video is controlled by an iPad. High-tech touches include projection screens for movies and a triptych of plasma screens overlaid with window panes showcasing images of outdoor ranch scenes. A plasma screen broadcasts the chefs' action in the kitchen. Famous and infamous Texas quotes and Pyles' favorite sayings are projected from the bar and the dining room alternatively with rich imagery from some of Texa' best photographers.

The dress code is Cowboy Chic or business casual with an encouragement for western wear. Let you inner cowboy or cowgirl shine!
