This isn’t your first rodeo…and it won’t be your last.
God Save the Rodeo Bar
Nostalgic Dallasites will remember the Rodeo Bar’s previous incarnation. Opened back in 1981, the iconic bar was renowned as an authentic, laidback hangout where one could drink ice cold beers and grab a bite without a fuss. After 40 years, the bar is back on the scene with its original grit, albeit, with a modern vibe.
“It was critical that we preserve and honor the heart and soul of the original concept,” said Justin Fields, one of the overseers of the bar return and revamp. “Quite literally we asked ourselves, how do we retain the past, while setting the stage for the next 40 years.”
Now open seven days a week, Rodeo Bar offers a bolstered menu of burgers, sandwiches, combo plates, salads, and small bites. Their featured items include the iconic Rodeo Burger – a 44 Farms Texas beef patty, American cheese, pickles, and house sauce; Rodeo Nachos, a tasty pile of ground beef, charro beans, pico, green chili queso, sour cream, and salsa roja; Carne Asada Steak; and a Texas Chopped Beef sandwich.
Sides are available in the form of french fries, rice and beans, and chili cheese fries. As for dessert, Rodeo Bar offers daily soft serve, a Dr. Pepper Float, Churro Sundae, RT’s Famous Banana Pudding, and the Pie of the Day.
In addition to craft, draft, and bottled beer, Rodeo Bar offers a variety of wines, boilermakers, and bubbly, as well as cocktails that include Between 7 N a Half Seconds made with vodka, basil, lemon, and sugar, and the Rodeo Rita – cointreau, tequila, lime, and a Tajin rim.
