Green Elephant

5627 Dyer St. Dallas, TX 75206 | East Dallas & Lakewood | 214-265-1338

Location Description:

Although this pseudo-psychedelic SMU hangout smells like last weekend's booze, the food is above-average bar fare, and there are a dozen draft beers to choose from while you play Golden Tee. The soft tacos were tasty and non-greasy; the Italian meatball pasta was a huge portion with delicious meatballs. The 1/2-pound burgers are excellent, but skip the tepid Buffalo wings.
