2822 Mckinney Ave. Dallas, TX 75204-2538 | Uptown & Oak Lawn | 214-969-1984

Location Description:

When you're looking for a serious sports bar, Big Al & Redneck Steve's McKinney Avenue Tavern has you and your team's number. It's the kind of place where you see several tables filled with folks in sweaty, grass-stained uniforms who just left a baseball diamond or a football field and are ordering pitchers before watching a game. And with flatscreens both inside and on the patio (including a huge 96-inch big screen), no matter where you're seated you'll be sure not to miss a second of the action. The bar always offers $3 PBRs and happy hour runs all night on Tuesdays. The front patio offers regulars a good view of McKinney Avenue for Uptown people-watching and provides a nice, quieter spot when a big game is on inside.
