Joe Barraco Sr. opened a grocery store in 1956 at 2919 Bryan St in Dallas. After many successful years in the grocery business, the family wanted to open a restaurant & the original Prego Pasta House opened on Greenville Ave in September 1982. For over 36 years, Prego's is like coming home for a home cooked meal. Rose, Joe's wife brought her family recipes & has passed these secrets on to the Prego's menu. Prego stills has the successful formula of offering the finest foods available prepared with the best ingredients & highest quality products that we can find. All our home made sauces are made from scratch & without the use of MSG. All our steaks, veal are USDA Choice grade, & we still make our own famous sausage. Four generations of the Barraco family and their recipes are still going strong.
“Rose and Joe Barraco have been serving Italian home cooking (plus a famous chicken fried steak) from this location for 30 years. There is NO better lunch menu--food and price--in Dallas. Pull in front and valet park and go in for a classic and amazing Dallas dining tradition. If you love good Italian food and you want a classy, intimate culinary experience, go to Prego's and you'll be glad you did. Oh, and be sure and say hello to the owners; they are there every day."
