We have evolved enough as human beings to start choosing not just any place to eat, but the best places to eat. So, your good friends at BLITZ have taken all the guesswork out and put together an awesome list of places to stuff your face with goodness. Others have tried, but we have conquered. Behold – The List:
Did you know that bars aren’t just the place where you met the girl (or guy) you woke up next to? Us either. It turns out that you can actually eat there too!
Angry Dog I www.angrydog.com
One of the most awarded bars in Dallas (from our brothers at Dallas Observer and D Magazine), Angry Dog has great burgers and wings. Taking things a step further, they also have killer hot dogs and nachos.
BlackFinn American Saloon I www.blackfinndallas.com/addison
The Finn has modern take on quintessential “bar food” with flat breads, Iron Skillet Macaroni and Cheese, Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, and much more. They also have the more traditional burger selections that push them into Top Chef contention.
Dubliner I www.dallasdubliner.com
The Irish pub has lots to choose from; like their Artisan Cheese Board with eight choices, good sandwiches, and of course spuds. We also hear it’s not a bad place to have a drink either.
Duke’s Original Roadhouse I www.dukesoriginalroadhouse.com
There can be many imitators, but there can be only one originator and in saying that Duke’s is king. Whether you pick the Plano or the Addsion location the result remains the same; good food and good times. Don’t leave without trying the “The Big Dog.”
The Library Bar I www.landmarkrestodallas.com
If you like music with your meal try out The Library Bar and exercise your right to have couth. They have an amazing Pan Seared Foie Gras and Cane Glazed Half Chicken. To add to the ambience there’s always a great piano player and/or jazz singer on hand.
The Libertine I www.libertinebar.com
A Greenville Ave. institution since their first drink was poured, The Libertine has a pretty impressive menu to prepare your stomach for the onslaught of alcohol that’s headed down the hatch. We recommend the Portobello Fries, Mac n’ Cheese, or Moules Frites.
McFadden’s I www.mcfaddensaddison.com
From their “Almost Famous Wings” to their Irish Nachos, McFadden’s has you covered. Try out the Pulled Pork Sloppy Joe in all its cheesy unkempt goodness. There are also salads and hand crafted sandwiches.
Meddlesome Moth I www.mothinthe.net
Pot pies, Prince Edward Island Mussels, and Blue Crab Salad oh my! The Moth brings their own blueprint for bar cuisine and they have drawn it to near perfection. Also sample some of their “rare beer tapping” every Wednesday at 5pm.
West End Pub I www.westendpubdallas.net
The home of the one and only Pub Pie is a great place to relax and eat only a stones throw from Victory Park (Just don’t hit Lam Lam – he’s fragile). The “Neighborhood Pub Without A Neighborhood” has a solid menu and great service to go with it.
