If you're a fan of burgers, pizza, paninis, beer, or rhyming, you'll definitely come back to Jack Mac's.
The combo of "Lee Harvey" and "Dallas" isn't recalled fondly in a historical sense, but this joint is certainly doing well to give itself a good name. There's just something incredibly relaxing about sitting around a fire pit with a cold beer on a warm night (especially with live music) and that's Lee Harvey's finest asset. And if you can't find a sitter for Rover, bring him too. They're dog-friendly as long as yours is.
There’s something to be said about a restaurant born from a burger. Chop House’s sister restaurant, Chop House Burger, is one of those places. Serving lunch and dinner every day but Sunday, the Downtown burger bar is bustling with people craving their high-quality prime patties. Non-beef alternatives are strong: the fried chicken sandwich, tuna burger, falafel burger, and ground turkey burger are there to sate the palate of those avoiding red meat. Go for the burger, don’t leave without a milkshake.
Helmed by Chef/Owner Brian Luscher (of Luscher's Red Hots fame), The Grape was originally opened in 1972 and has served approachable, European influenced fare at affordable prices ever since. The menu changes monthly, though, so the Grape never feels stodgy or old-guard. The charming, bistro-like interior and homestyle fare (blueberry pancakes, shrimp and grits) make The Grape a great brunch option
Pour House Dallas finally earned its PhD in boozology: the hitherto BYOB sports bar's now serving beers (Magic Hat #9, Velvet Hammer, Rahr Rocktoberfest...) & 'tails to go with bar-food like smoked brisket quesadillas, jalapeno cheese sticks, chicken fried steak, a bleu cheese 'peno burger, and a buffalo chicken sandwich, which like a Buffalo Bill chicken sandwich, is served skinless. Gross.
Uptown's Three Sheets is a delightfully odd combination of neighborhood grill, sports bar and library. It offers up gourmet takes on American and Italian favorites like chicken parm sandwiches, angus burgers and pizzas, and the simple brunch menu is chock full of Southern staples like breakfast tacos, full country breakfasts and chicken and waffles. If there's a game on, head straight to the patio (that's where the televisions are along with foosball and pool tables). Otherwise kick back in the library lounge, full of worn leather sofas and fully stocked book shelves.
