2019 Flavor of Duncanville
While school may have been closed for spring break last week, throngs of local citizens strolled the halls of Duncanville High School March 14. They were attending the annual Flavor of Duncanville, hosted by the City of Duncanville and Duncanville Chamber of Commerce. It’s a great way to find new favorite restaurants, or to learn more about services that are available in the community.
Restaurants like City View Tacos, Chubby’s Restaurant, Chick-Fil-A Cedar Hill, Kitchen’s Deli, Little Caesar’s, Smokin’ BBQ and Olive Garden offered tasty food to sample. A number of other participants offered information about their services at decorated booths lining the high school’s hallways.
