Thank you for your interest in Slow Food DFW Snail of Approval. It is a Slow Food recognition of good, clean, and fair food businesses in Dallas – Fort Worth. It is considered throughout the world as an award of excellence in good, clean and fair food. 


Slow Food Snail of Approval is awarded to those restaurants that contribute to the quality, authenticity, and sustainability of the local food supply and have been deemed outstanding among peers. 


The Snail of Approval follows Slow Food’s tradition of recognizing establishments that have a shared set of values. Slow Food DFW is one of over ten local chapters of Slow Food USA with an active Snail of Approval program.


Slow Food DFW Values/Guidelines are locally unique to the Slow Food DFW chapter, although all Snail of Approval programs follow the ‘Good. Clean. Fair.’ guidelines.


Snail of Approval recognition will be awarded to restaurants, retail shops, farms and food artisans in the top tier of the Slow Food good, clean, fair values and practices in their establishments, including local procurement, on their plates, in their services and in the relationships they maintain. Awarded establishments will join excellence with the use of the Slow Food DFW Snail of Approval logo, a window sticker and listing on our Snail of Approval webpage.
