Frankie's Sports Bar and Grill - Closed

3227 McKinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204 | Uptown & Oak Lawn | 214-999-8932

Location Description:

This sports bar in the former Spasso's space at Hall Street isn't content to stay within the boundaries of the athletics-and-suds-joint mold, although you wouldn't know it from the gargantuan portions of the kitchen's offerings, which a national newspaper called "a menu on steroids." The 30 HD plasma TVs, among them a pair of 10-foot HD-TV projection screens and a 42-inch HD plasma TV on each of the two patios, offering everything from B-ball to UFC matches enforce the sports-bar stereotype. What separates Frankie's from other bars in town is the menu. The raw bar, with its yellow fin tuna sashimi and oysters on the half shell, is one example. Other off-kilter (for a sports bar) items are the "Cardinals" Sriracha chicken wings -- the menu is packed with athletic witticisms -- and Kobe Bryant Best Damn Chicken Salad sliders.
