Dallas Observer's Description

The saying goes that friends are the family you get to choose. Local bars are like this, too, and Goodfriend is that kind of bar.

Bye-Bye Birdie, Dippity Do, Spuds Mackenzie and Nacho Mamma are a few of the goofy names that describe a competent menu of bar food comprised of nachos, sandwiches and solid burgers, including the Loretta Lynn, a blue-cheese-topped show stopper.

    The slaw is to die for.

    Everything is great, but I especially suggest the root beer (get it with a shot of root beer vodka if you want booze).
