Great news, friends: fall is around the corner. Never mind the current stifling heat and oppressive humidity – the next season is en route…promise. And, we can confidently say Texans are most excited about two things: 1. The (hopefully) cooler temps, and 2. FOOTBALL SEASON. Maybe football first, actually. It’s time to block off your weekends and dedicate free time to your favorite college and NFL teams. That means an opportunity to combine two of Dallasites’ favorite pastimes: watching allll the football and BRUNCHING.
Luckily, Dallas is brimming with bars and restaurants offering plenty of TVs and brunch dishes to keep you occupied and full all weekend long. Here’s where you’ll find us sippin’ mimosas and cheering on our teams this season:
- Chelsea Corner: our favorite, never-fail neighborhood bar. Between the front bar, game room and backyard, Chelsea Corner boasts more than 12 HD screens to fill with football. Pair that with the Backyard Burger and $3 mimosas, and you’ve got a winning game day. Pro tip: head there on Sundays for half-price bottles of champs!
- High Fives: THE game day destination for Texas Tech alums. Order up one of H5’s Hangover Helpers (one drink legit has Pedialyte in it), and share the Big Ass Breakfast Burrito with three of your friends. Or don’t share it – whatever. High Fives is the place to be if you’re looking to start a “Raider Power” chant.
- The Standard Pour: a mainstay in the Dallas brunch rotation. Settle down in front of the TVs at the bar, order the Brisket Hash and sip on craft brunch cocktails. TSP also breaks out a big screen and projector for a prime ‘Boys watching situation.
- Moxies: this Canadian bar and restaurant is anything but your typical “sports bar,” yet it quickly became one of Dallas’ most popular spots to catch a game. The bar is lined with TVs, the crowd is always lively, and you’d never know a Canadian was behind their delicious Huevos Rancheros.
- Henderson Tap House: Sooners, this one’s for you. While HTH welcomes any and all football fans, its the go-to spot for OU grads. The place has more than enough TVs, and you know we love anywhere with a breakfast pizza on the menu! We may both be Red Raiders at heart, but Kelsie attended grad school at OU, so we’ll don the occasional crimson and cream.
- Stirr: our favorite place to brunch in Deep Ellum. Mimosa carafes. Steak and eggs. Giant Moscow Mules. Views of Downtown AND TVs to view the game. Stirr has it all.
- The Rustic: we’ll never tire of the family-style brunch. The Rustic is where to go when you’re rolling deep. Whether you’re with friends or rivals, all teams can agree on one thing: hot chicken, baby french toast and pitchers of bloody mary’s are worth rooting for.
Now, who’s ready for kick off?
