Rodeo Bar, the quintessential Texas tavern in Downtown Dallas is now open for lunch 7 days a week beginning at 11 a.m. in addition to their dinner and late-night hours. Guests can enjoy the all-day menu with a playful approach to comfort food, and a nostalgic appreciation for Americana fare. Smash-style burgers are the focus of the menu as a nod to the original Rodeo Bar, which many regulars thought to have had one of the best burgers in town during its time.
“Reopening Rodeo Bar has been a thrill for us and it’s great to see the heart and soul of this historic bar come back to life. While we are currently known for our happy hour, dinner and late-night, we’re looking forward to serving our guests their Rodeo Bar favorites at lunch as well,” said Chef Charles Olalia, Culinary Director for Makeready.
Standout items on the menu include “snacks” such as the Rodeo Nachos – ground beef, charro beans, pico de gallo, green chili queso, sour cream, salsa roja; Green Chili Queso & Chips; and Buttermilk Fried Chicken Wings.
