happyly approved

With a variety of outdoor entertainment for kids and adults alike, the Lot is a great spot to celebrate, eat, or hang out.

This Dallas gem is a rustic and hip environment full of fun for all ages in the heart of East Dallas. There is an amazing outdoor garden and play area that adults and children enjoy, and while their menu isn’t quite as extensive as you would expect, every item is great. Their bar and food are almost all locally sourced from the Dallas and Texas area. Kids will love the sandbox, various lawn games (washers, foosball, and corn hole), and playground. There is even a chalkboard area for drawing and games. Their kid's menu is reasonably priced with all of the classics like chicken fingers, mini burgers, quesadillas, and bowtie pasta. They also have Pop Star Popsicles as a fun dessert treat! The Lot offers live music every Friday and Saturday night around 7 pm on their beer garden stage, so be sure to secure a spot beforehand! This is a great spot to bring the kids for any occasion, whether it be a big football game, birthday celebration, or just a way to be outside. This is a great option after a bike ride around White Rock Lake Park as well. In the winter they provide heaters outdoors and it is also dog-friendly for those with pets. The LOT also has the support of their community behind them, holding several awards including “Best Family-Friendly Restaurant,” “Best Patios in Dallas,” and one of the “10 Best New Bars.”
