These pour houses are known for serving the best bar food in town. Consider it a restaurant bucket list for Dallas diners to go forth and feast at one of these three Dallas taverns with outstanding food on the menu.
When you’re on the lookout for a down-to-earth hangout that serves classic pub grub, and some of the area’s best drink specials, check out City Tavern. Browse the menu for mouthwatering snacks and starters like the Barbacoa Nachos with chile-braised brisket.
Warm up with a bowl of award-winning chili and a wedge salad, or try one of their hand-crafted sandwiches like Dad’s pulled pork. If you’re hungry for breakfast foods, City Tavern serves up all-day brunch where you can get the ever popular breakfast tacos or two eggs any way you like them.
On the tavern side, choose from dozens of local drafts including Lakewood Hop Trapp IPA and Peticolas Golden Opportunity. Or, ask the bartender to stir up a signature cocktail such as the God Father with Maker’s Mark.
Discover City Tavern’s dine-in specials like BOGO lunch and half-priced appetizers. Monday’s drink special is $4 u-call-its until 11 p.m., or come in on Wednesday for karaoke night. Dance your nacho plate away to the live music by local bands or the funky sounds spun by DJ Leo J.
Ten Bells Tavern
Ten Bells is a laid-back, British-influenced pub with a large European beer selection, and some of the best bar food on the planet. Chef Gerardo Lopez turns out the greatest chow you’ll find this side of the pond and prepares unique specials every weekend. Head out to Ten Bells Thursday through Saturday for a selection of seasonal entrees made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Start with a small plate of salmon bruschetta or the short rib frites on the late night menu. If that doesn’t satisfy you, sample the duck confit hash on the brunch menu.
