Best Dallas Restaurants and Bars for Football Sundays


When your shift is over and you’re ready to watch some serious football, Dallas, Texas is the place to be.

And we’re not talking about sitting in your living room watching the game with your cat.

Nope, if you want to enjoy an exciting Sunday of football action – surrounded by like-minded fans – Dallas offers a wide variety of restaurants and sports bars dedicated to gameday festivities and fun.

But if you’re a healthcare traveler on assignment who’s new in town, it can be hard to know where the best spots are located. After all, the Dallas area is one of the largest metropolitan regions in the country.

So with the help of our resourceful team of football experts at Focus Staff, we’ve identified eight highly-recommended restaurants and bars to consider when planning your football outing with friends or coworkers:

City Works

With its proximity to The Star, home of the Dallas Cowboys, City Works is a popular game day destination. The Super Bowl will play on 25 giant TVs, and the restaurant will serve half-priced snacks like pretzel bites and fried cheese curds alongside $3 Goose Island beers all day long.

Stan’s Blue Note

The drinks are served in Mason jars, the loaded nachos are awesome; and the people are loud and boisterous. Stan’s Blue Note is where people from different backgrounds, countries, and creeds come together to scream proudly at athletes on television.

Henderson Tap House

Enjoy the game (or games) at one of the many tables at this Henderson Avenue hot spot on game day, where more than 35 HDTVs will be devoted to football. If there’s a game going on, you’ll find it at the Tap House.

Truck Yard

If the weather is nice, there’s no better way to spend gameday than at the Truck Yard. Grab a frozen cocktail or two, dig into a cheesesteak, and head out to the patio. And if your bucket list includes watching football from the confines of a treehouse, you can check that one off here.

Katy Trail Ice House

If the thought of sitting all day watching football isn’t totally appealing, take a run on the Katy Trail – then grab one of the indoor (or outdoor) tables at the Katy Trail Ice House while watching the game on one of the many TVs.

Press Box Grill

The Press Box knows how to party on game days. Look forward to TVs in every corner, including a large projection screen on the back wall, and delicious and hearty pub fare like loaded cheese fries and brisket sliders.

Scout Dallas

Need another game while watching the game? Head to Scout, where bowling lanes, ping-pong, and other activities to enjoy during halftime await. You can also choose from an array of well-priced local beers and giant nacho platters.


Consistently voted one of Dallas’ finest sports bars, Frankie’s is a downtown establishment offering ample TVs, a lot of drink specials, and excellent pub grub.
