9 Must-Try Keller Restaurants | The Best Restaurants in Keller, Texas

Sharing is caring!

Keller was settled in the 1840s as part of the Peters Colony, by Missouri families who homesteaded near the headwaters of Big Bear Creek. In 1881, the settlement was named after John C. Keller, a foreman on the railroad, after Keller became a stop on the Texas Pacific Railway, extending north from Fort Worth to Texarkana. In its early years, Keller prospered as a farming community.

Mostly residential, Keller boasts more than three hundred acres of parkland and more than twenty-six miles of hiking and biking trails.  Money Magazine rated Keller as one of the ten “Best Places to Live” in the US in 2009, ranked number seven. 

Keller has a growing bevy of restaurants; here are eight of the best available.  These Keller restaurants participate in take-out and curbside pick-up, with dine-in at 50% capacity or 125 people, whichever is less.

The 9 Best Restaurants in Keller, Texas

Boca 31 in Keller Town Center

101 Town Center Ln, Ste 117 //   682-593-8111

A fusion of Mexican, Caribbean, and Peruvian dishes, Boca 31, led by Chef-owner Andres Meraz, is home to popular Latin street food like tacos, empanadas, and sandwiches including the Peruvian, made with guajillo pork loin with charred sweet potato.

The palate-seducing menu reflects Chef Andres’ culinary background of experiences at The Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay, Carnelian Room in San Francisco, DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz Carlton South Beach Hotel, as well as Restaurante Akelarre, a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain to name a few.  

Find yucca fries, agas frescas, beer, and wine drinks, along with daily specials posted on a chalkboard sign.

I indulged in the Peruvian Chicken Sandwich, with citrus onions, charred sweet potatoes, served with a side salad, or you can select chips.

I had to try a Spinach Empanada, and the spinach, goat cheese, and caramelized onions served with garlic crema was a culinary hit.


For Taco Tuesday, choose the pulled pork plantain tostadas with pinto beans, crema, spicy salsa, Roja cabbage, and queso.

Marcello, my friendly server, talked me into a dessert empanada, the guava and cream cheese, a delicate blend of flavors, but not too sweet. Two locations, Denton and Keller. 

Open for dine-in; closes at 4 pm. To-go orders, curbside pick-up when you call ahead; Grub Hub,, and Door-Dash orders.  Make sure to treat your mouth (Boca in Spanish) to one of the best restaurants in Keller. 

Oliva Italian Eatery

12477 Timberland Blvd. #633 // 817-337-6999

Oliva Italian Eatery is a fantastic restaurant. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the most popular restaurants in the neighborhood. They have a lively atmosphere, delicious food, and excellent service.

It’s the perfect place to spend a pleasant evening out in town. This place is fantastic and a hidden gem.

We started with calamari and garlic bread. They both exceeded our expectations. The calamari was fresh, perfectly fried, and not at all heavy. They fried it “lightly,” yet it came out rather crunchy. Incredible.

Before the main course, we tried a couple of side salads. The salads were stunningly prepared, and the tomato-vinaigrette dressing was delicious. I believe their croutons were prepared from scratch. The Caesar salad was delicious; we could have eaten a whole bucket of it.

Our main courses were lasagna, chicken parmigiana, shrimp scampi, and ravioli. The lasagna was possibly the greatest I’ve ever tasted in a restaurant. All items are served in generous amounts. The chicken parm had a generous piece of chicken.

Chocolate Custard, however, is a dessert you should not miss. In other words, it’s heaven on earth. In all seriousness, I scraped the bowl clean!

This location is sure to become a favorite if you’re seeking something new to try.

Maria Cuca’s Mexican Cuisine

800 S Main St   //   817-741-0213

For appetizers, try the guacamole prepared fresh at your table; nachos, quesadillas, stuffed jalapenos, burritos, or the Cuca’s Platter with a stuffed pepper, bean nachos, chicken and beef flautas, fried burrito, cheese quesadilla, guacamole, sour cream, and chili con queso.  Oh, my goodness, that’s a meal in itself.

For tacos, your choices are brisket, al carbon, shrimp, fish, soups, pork, or veggie.  Did they leave anything out? 

Choose a Fajita Salad or Taco Salad or traditional Tortilla Soup served with chicken, cheese, fresh avocado slices, and tortilla strips.

For the main meal, Maria Cuca offers Fajitas Parrillada, a combo of beef, chicken, sausage, pork, and shrimp; Chili Rellenos, Carne Asada, Carnitas, seafood platters, burritos, chimichangas, flautas, or enchilada platters. What a selection!


I had the creative Camarones Vallarta; six jumbo shrimp sautéed in crab meat sauce in a pineapple boat, served with rice and veggies. Delectable! And, if you have room, choose handmade sopapillas, homemade flan, or pecan pie for dessert.

Happy hour Monday-Friday, 11 am-7 pm with $2 off all margaritas: Margaritas: Mongomoy, Peachmoy, Cuca’s Premium, Skinny, Frozen Swirl, Pina Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri, or Beer-Rita.  Or order a Micheladas, a traditional Mexican drink with unique spices, and clamato, with room to pour your Mexican beer on top.

Jason “Jay” and Janice Smith, originally from South Louisiana, moved to the DFW area shortly after Hurricane Katrina and made their home here.  They opened The Lost Cajun, prioritizing four things above all else; faith, family, friends, and of course, food.

The Menu offers a sampling board of six traditional Cajun features: seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, red beans and rice, crawfish etouffee, lobster bisque, and jambalaya. What a great idea to get a sampling to help make your decision.

The American steakhouse, serving farm-to-table cuisine, with local fresh produce, creates each dish from scratch. The owners did their research: toured the Certified Angus Beef resource, visited local farms, searched farmers’ markets, and tasted locally brewed beers.  

steak and lobster tail

For starters, try the Korean BBQ Quail Knots with kimchi and togarashi, or the Shrimp Ceviche with house-made chicharrones. Select a shaved Brussels sprout salad or, as I did, start with the Lobster Bisque; creamy sherry flavored soup garnished with a large chunk of lobster claw meat.

Roscoes was good but closed down. You left off The Station. We like Maria Cucos also. Glad you reviewed it. Haven't tried the Lost Cajun yet.

Did you try the "Golden Thai" restaurant in Keller? I believe it is the BEST Thai restaurant!


Thursday 29th of October 2020

DeVivo Bros was horrible the last time I was there. Chef Boyardee knows more about Italian food than these two.


Tuesday 29th of September 2020

I have been to several of these!
