They say everything's bigger in Texas: big hair, big trucks, big hats, big personalities. Dallas-Fort Worth is no exception. With over 7 million residents, there are a lot of cars on the road, so it's no wonder Lyft is becoming the best way to get to work, the airport, uptown, downtown, and everywhere in between.
While DFW may be big and bustling, its southern hospitality makes you feel at home. Everywhere you look there's a new craft brewery, culinary gem, championship team, or southern haunt. Looking to explore the area? Here are our picks for the top ten destinations:
This multi-level restaurant and bar has something for everyone. Enjoy drinks on the spacious patio or make your way to the rooftop bar where you can take in impressive views of the Dallas skyline. Have tickets to a concert or game at American Airlines Center? Happiest Hour is just down the street.
Keyword = Local. This hotspot prides itself on using local ingredients for its unique menu (order the queso and you'll see what we mean by unique). Grab a seat on the patio, enjoy a local beer and listen to — you guessed it — local artists on their impressive stage.
Deep Ellum Brewery
This eclectic brewery offers tours which includes tokens for three (full!) pints of your choosing. Or pass up the tour and play games with friends while enjoying a beer on the patio. We highly recommend the Deep Ellum IPA. Just remember to take Lyft home after indulging!
American Airlines Center
This arena is home of the Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars and a laundry list of top music artists and traveling shows. Fun Fact: AAC is in the top 10 venues in the world based on annual attendance.
Now a live music venue hosting a range of local and national artists, the building was once used to manufacture bombs and ammunition during World War 2.
HG Sply Co.
Customers enjoy paleo-inspired meals while gazing at the Dallas skyline from the rooftop patio. If you're a vegetarian or just happen to end up eating here on "meatless Monday," try the quinoa burger for a mind-blowing experience.
Billy Bob’s Texas
Known as the "World's Largest Honky Tonk," this iconic venue hosts country music legends and has served as the “big break" for artists like George Strait, Alan Jackson and Reba McEntire. Along with concerts, this venue (that was originally built to be a cattle barn) boasts live bull riding and country dancing.
Good old-fashioned barbecue. The picture speaks for itself.
This spacious outside area is filled with picnic tables and surrounded by a stage, bars, and food trucks. Watch live music on the weekends and enjoy food from one of the rotating food trucks.
