The Lot

Map & Directions 7530 E. Grand Ave.
Dallas, TX 75214


Dallas Observer's Description

The East Dallas restaurant and beer garden is the product of some serious teamwork; restauranteur John McBride (El Fenix), food consultant Sharon Hage and designer Hatsumi Kuzuu (Tei An, FT33 and Sissy's Southern Kitchen & Bar) have joined forces on the culinary project. The LOT boasts a spacious dining room and bar and an equally large outdoor patio; the pool that once occupied the Backyard Beach Bar's has been filled in with gravel and lined with wooden picnic tables and canopies. The backyard is home to two sand-filled playgrounds; one for kids and another for adults (who are young at heart and/or have taken serious advantage of the beer garden). The menu spans a wide variety of fare, most of which falls in the $7-$10 range. There is also a juice bar serving seasonal juices for $6 each (spirits can be added for an additional $2). Other libations include the Lakewood lemonade (Maker's Mark, lemonade, ginger and mint for $7), East Dallas iced tea (Captain Morgan spiced rum, peach schnapps and house-brewed iced tea for $7) and the White Rock martini (Pinnacle berry vodka, triple sec and cranberry juice).

Tips from foursquare

  • Sandra E. on 03/15/13

    Great patio!

  • Eddy B. on 03/15/13

    Fish tacos are great, burger is above average, but the salted caramel pecan skillet cake is MONEY.

  • Richard M. on 05/05/13

    This place blows! Too many kids running around. I felt like I was at a daycare.

  • Kasumi C. on 04/08/13

    This child is so awful to my ear holes. Don't sit on the patio if there are children around.

  • Lisa D. on 05/05/13

    Anything with pulled chicken is the bomb. Sit in the bar if you're not into kids
