Location 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. Dubbed a Beer Garden and Burger House, it brings something new to a section of East Dallas that's been ready for change. An impressive cedar pergola outside coupled with a sleek interior design make for a great place to drink and grab a bite. 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.
