The LOT is a locally-influenced restaurant and neighborhood beer garden in the heart of East Dallas …where all are welcome. We are located off the Santa Fe Trail (connected by our bridge), a stone's throw from White Rock Lake and the Arboretum. Drop by any time and join us for great food, cold beer, and a full bar, served in a relaxed casual atmosphere. Come as you are, and bring your friends — dogs and kids included.

The LOT is a friendly neighborhood establishment with an East Dallas vibe. Whether you’re making new friends, hanging out with old ones, or spending an afternoon with the family, you’re always welcome here. Hang out in our bar, watch TV, play in our arcade, dine on our porch while watching the kids have a great time, dine with your dog in our outdoor areas, listen to live music in our beer garden with a group of buddies, host your next event in our covered porch party space while eating street tacos. Stop in and have fun. View the Restaurant Map
