The Top 100 Dallas Restaurants, No. 39: One of Deep Ellum’s better bars by any measure, Armoury D.E. is especially beloved for its food. Owner Peter Novotny works with chef Abram Vargas to make his Hungarian heritage clear on the menu — it’s actually the most Hungarian menu in the region — with hearty goulash, an array of paprika-spiced sausages and sandwiches. The charcuterie board is better than a bar’s has any right to be. Even the S&M salad (that’s strawberry and mushrooms) has a die-hard club of fans.

Top pick: The best charcuterie board at any Dallas bar is symbolic of what might just be the best food program of any bar in city limits.

The downside: As a Deep Ellum bar, Armoury is required by city ordinance to be too loud.

Fun fact: A new “burger of the week” debuts every Friday at lunchtime, with toppings like fried chicken skins, patties made from novel meats like rabbit or concepts like Peanut Butter Jelly Time.
