The saying goes that friends are the family you get to choose. Local bars are like this, too, and Goodfriend is that kind of bar. Dubbed a Beer Garden and Burger House, it brings something new to a section of East Dallas that's been ready for change. An impressive cedar pergola outside coupled with a sleek interior design make for a great place to drink and grab a bite. A competent menu of bar food comprised of smoked pork nachos, towering sandwiches and solid burgers, including the Alamo, a brisket, avocado and queso combo that you won't forget.
