For this and every other year, R.L.'s should win best blues bar, and here is why. It is an experience like no other, a one-off in Dallas where some of the most talented blues, soul, old-school R&B and funk musicians get together every weekend to play one set that's many, many hours long while the entire bar shakes their thing. It's BYOB. It's unbelievably welcoming. It's one of the best, most memorable experiences you can have in all of Dallas.
