Stan’s Blue Note
Best sports bar located a couple miles south of Old East Dallas
This laid-back Greenville Avenue hangout is one of the best and oldest sports bars in town, and it’s long been a go-to during football season for good reason. That’s not changing on Super Bowl Sunday, when you can tune into 30-plus TVs and partake in a $10 burger-and-fries special, $3.75 domestic pints, and $4 Fireball shots. There are also two patios, a pool table, shuffleboard, and darts—the perfect distractions for those who couldn’t care less about what’s happening on the field.
Stan’s has been in business for 70 years. The place has perfected a few things during that time, like how to host a great day of football. On Saturdays and Sundays, the many TVs are tuned to all the games, and the bar pours $3.75 domestic pints, so you can drink for cheap in victory or defeat. Just be sure to soak up some of that alcohol by ordering from one the city’s best bar food menus, with burgers, nachos, and an impressive meatball sub.
