McKesson Corp., the nation's largest pharmaceutical distributor, announced last week that it will relocate its headquarters from San Francisco to Las Colinas in April. The company, which delivers prescription drugs and medical supplies, has more than 75,000 employees globally and had revenue of $208 billion last year. It ranks sixth on the Fortune 500 list, behind only Walmart, Exxon Mobil, Berkshire Hathaway, Apple and UnitedHealth Group. With its move, McKesson will become the second-largest company by revenue to be based in North Texas, surpassing AT&T Inc. The largest, Exxon Mobil, is also headquartered in Las Colinas. Dallas-Fort Worth had 22 Fortune 500 company headquarters this year. That'll grow next year with the addition of McKesson and another California transplant, San Francisco-based Core-Mark Holding Co., which is relocating to Westlake.
Less than 20 minutes from the heart of Dallas, the city of Irving, TX offers endless options for shopping, dining and entertainment. Some of our real estate agents' favorite spots in the DFW area can be found right here, and today we want to highlight one of the area's best restaurants – Saltgrass Steakhouse in Irving, TX.
Saltgrass Steakhouse serves Certified Angus Beef® steaks – the finest in the world – which exceeds even USDA Choice beef in taste and tenderness. The restaurant also has a lot more to offer besides steak, but let's face it. The beef is the main attraction here, and rightly so.
From Pat's Ribeye to the Silver Star Porterhouse and Maudeen's Center Cut Filet, Saltgrass Steakhouse excels when it comes to prime cuts of char-grilled beef, slathered in fresh garlic butter and seasoned with their signature Saltgrass-7 Steak Spice. Their lunch and dinner menus also offer incredible burgers, mouth-watering ribs, fresh seafood, poultry and some of the best ribs around. Besides, the appetizers, sides and desserts alone are worth making a trip for. Try the Two-Fork Cheese Cake, or the homemade beer bread, served warm with honey butter. All breads, dressings and soups are made from scratch daily.
The bar at Saltgrass Steakhouse serves up craft beer in frosty mugs, along with top shelf agave margaritas, an incredible variety of excellent cocktails and an extensive wine list. Stop in for a drink, and there's a good chance you'll be tempted to stick around for a full meal.
Saltgrass Steakhouse got its start in 1991 in Houston, and now has dozens of locations all over the country. The original location sits right alongside the legendary Salt Grass Trail, a historic route used by cattle herders in the 19th century to drive their livestock south to graze on the fertile salt grasses of the Texas Gulf Coast.
It was a journey known far and wide for producing the best beef in Texas, a tradition that Saltgrass Steakhouse carries on today. The trail ride was revived in the 1950s, and has continued to this day, becoming an annual celebration of the original Texas spirit.
The Irving, TX location of Saltgrass Steakhouse is just minutes from some of the best attractions in Irving, including Lakeview Park, the Sam Houston Trail, Luna Vista Golf Course and the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. Downtown Dallas is just 20 minutes away, and Fort worth is just a 30 minute drive.

Visitors have called the Mandalay Canal Walk at Las Colinas a "hidden secret path." Those of us with homes in Irving know the walkway is easy to find. It follows the path of the man-made waterway as it joins Lake Carolyn. The Canal Walk is one of the unique features that help make the Las Colinas planned community a wonderful place to call home.
Our REALTORS® in Irving understand that the Canal Walk at Las Colinas is no secret. Still, we believe it's important to offer friendly reminders of just how beautiful and peaceful our community can be.
When you walk the canal
The Canal Walk gives you access to a beautiful ground level city view. You follow a patterned-brick path that syncs with the waterway's arcs and curves. You wander past gleaming office buildings, hotels, arched entryways, and architecture with a distinctive European flair.
Walking the path is a unique way to appreciate the Las Colinas fusion of futuristic growth and old world charm. Best of all, it's a great way to see the commercial district without traffic getting in the way.
More than just a walk
The path is tree-lined and peaceful, ideal for a solo morning walk, an afternoon lunch with coworkers, or a romantic evening stroll. Some restaurants, shops, hotels, and local entertainment venues border the walkway. Others are nearby or a doable walking distance.
As you walk, you'll also see towering buildings, floral accents, and secluded inlets with man-made waterfalls. The celebrated Mustangs of Colinas sculpture and museum are nearby as well.
And if you don't feel like walking
If a peaceful walk isn't enough to satisfy your need for motion, you'll find a few options along the way.
