Brunch or Lunch

Common Table

Awesome Breakfast Tacos!!! They don’t have drink specials but the food is so yummy. Get there early, it gets pretty packed.

Outdoor Seating: Yes

Drink Specials: Carafes (no unlimited brunch)


I’m not the biggest fan of their breakfast but I love their soup and salads. Since it is a bakery, they have some incredible bread for their sandwiches or as a side for your soup. Also, some incredible baked goods!

Outdoor Seating: Yes


Public School

Bottomless Drinks are a must for Dallas Brunching! Public School has awesome food and great specials that everyone will love! See dinner section below for more!

*Bottomless Mimosa, Bloody Mary, Beermosa, Michelada $10*


Shops at Park Lane

I am a major sale shopper so I love the shops at park lane. It is located across the highway from North Park Mall and they have some awesome stores with marked down prices. These are my favorite shops here:

Nordstrom Rack | Bloomingdales Outlet | Forever 21 Red | Home Goods


Social House

My absolute #1 pick for dinner in Dallas. There are so many incredible restaurants in Uptown, but social house is my go to when I come to town. The have the best bruschetta I’ve ever had and a great drink selection. It is definitely not a sports bar but they have TVs and a bar area if you want some great food while your game is on.

Outdoor Seating: Yes

Happy Hour: Mon – Fri 4-7PM

Matt’s Picks: Bruschetta Appetizer | A glass of Septima Malbec | Apple Cider Chicken w/ green beans (it’s perfect for splitting too) OR the Seared Tuna Starter for a light meal





Another common favorite for me and my friends. We love their happy hour too! Queso and Margs are a must. I love coming to Gloria’s for dinner because it has a fancy feel for great prices and awesome food!  Their house margaritas will knock you on your butt!

Outdoor Seating: Yes

Happy Hour: Mon-Thurs ALL DAY | Fri 3-6PM

Matt’s Picks: House Margarita on the Rocks | Chips & Queso Appetizer | Chicken Fajitas (perfect for splitting)


Public School

Such a cute place! We go here when we are wanting a lighter dinner. They have some unique salad combinations and tasty entrees.

Outdoor Seating: Yes

Happy Hour: Mon- Fri 4-7PM

Matt’s Picks: Buffalo Cauliflower Appetizer | Ahi Tuna Salad

Max’s Wine Dive

BEST bread pudding of my life. That’s all you need to know. (I’ve heard the food is good too, but I haven’t tried it yet)


To Chill- The Rustic, Three Sheets, Trophy Room

The Rustic- Definitely a great place for a chill night out with great music and drinks.  They have an awesome concert series and a really cool atmosphere.  Music is usually outside.  They also have a full menu if you want to go there and eat and stay through the night.

Three Sheets- “Bar” Definitely a more chill spot.  They have a lounge atmosphere with pool tables and darts and a great place to catch up with friends.

Trophy Room- If you’ve heard people say “the place with the bull”, that is Trophy Room. It is fun to ride the bull if you have never done it before but prepare for dudes to totally check you out the whole time… but some girls do it for just that reason.  Aside from the bull, it has a cool atmosphere and large outdoor area.  It gets pretty crowded though at times.

For a guaranteed good time- Kung Fu Saloon 

Kung Fu Saloon- This is my favorite place to bring a group of friends to have some drinks and play some awesome games. The bar is full of old arcade games like Mario Kart, Ski Ball, Mortal Combat etc. and they are all FREE!! We love to sit outside and play life size Jenga! This place is so so fun!!!

To turn up- Concrete Cowboy or 6th St.

Concrete Cowboy- Awesome vibes here! Lots of EDM music but it is so fun. You can make table reservations if you have a group but it is not as exclusive as Avenu.  Great atmosphere and so so fun!

6th Street- Two story bar with a cool deck to sit out on.  Great music! It is across the street from Kung Fu if you want to bar hop.

To Get Rowdy- Avenu

Avenu- Closest thing to Vegas you can get in Uptown. Not really, but kinda. They have booth rentals and bottle service… but for us commoners, the music and themes there are always pretty sweet. Great place to go out and dance all night.
