Dining Experience

Hidden Springs Caters to Gourmet Palates and Active Lifestyles

Let’s be honest. Food adds to our quality of life. A really good meal can be the highlight of our day, so it’s no surprise that the dining experience at a senior living community is one of the most important factors in attracting residents. When it comes to senior living dining and exceptional meals, Hidden Springs is as demanding as you are.

Committed to delivering a delicious experience at every meal, senior living dining is elevated to new levels of excellence at Hidden Springs. In fact, when seniors in the North Dallas area are looking for a community to live their best life possible, the senior living dining menus at Hidden Springs entice them with quality, selection and flavor.

We know that delicious food is certainly at the top of every person’s priority list. Mealtime is more than delicious, nutritious food; it’s an important part of our social health and well-being. At Hidden Springs, we are committed to providing a rich, satisfying dining experience at each and every meal.

You may be thinking, “Really? How good can retirement home food really be?” First of all, we don’t consider the meals artfully prepared in our kitchen by our own Executive Chef and talented culinary team “retirement home food,” or “Assisted Living food.” These are fine restaurant-style meals crafted with fresh, high-quality ingredients, including prime beef and fresh, locally sourced fruits and vegetables, and graciously served in our dining room. Want a little taste of what we’re serving? Take a look at our sample menus.

    We Welcome You to Dine at Our Table and Share More Than a Meal.

    “What I like best about my job is hearing about residents’ memories of great meals served by their mothers, or family recipes from their heritage. I cherish these stories.” – Executive Chef

    Q. Are the meals prepared fresh on site?

    A. Yes. Unlike assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities or nursing homes that contract with a third party senior dining partner, Hidden Springs has its own culinary department led by an Executive Chef.

As a rental retirement community, we are committed to enhancing our residents’ quality and enjoyment of life. As such, we do not compromise on the quality or integrity of the food we prepare and serve.
