If it’s even a remotely nice day in Dallas, which isn’t a rare thing, you should head to Katy Trail Ice House. They have one of the best patios in the city and you’ll want to move in on the weekends. It’s a place where you’ll come for the cold beer and end up posting up for hours - which is when their surprisingly good food will come in handy. Get the barbecue plate or the burger, and always a side of fries.
