Cosmo's Restaurant and Bar
Dallas, TX 75206
Taylor Adams Dumplings in broth
Top pick: If you just want to wash down a few cold beers, you could do worse than to order a sheet pan of tater tots loaded up with kimchi and cheese.
The downside: The kitchen’s even smaller than the bar, so orders may take a while. Cosmo’s has a patio for safer in-person dining, but it’s tremendously popular.
Fun fact: While you eat, enjoy the best VHS movie collection of any Dallas bar.
