    Know what you want when it's busy and don't keep the bartenders waiting. Drinks are the strongest in Dallas so so if you're a pansy ask for it tall. Food is good, too.

    There should never be lines at casual bars, ever. Lucky for you they open at 11 a.m. most days and the place is nearly empty: day drunk.
